A nice location but the food and drinks are overpriced. The only thing positive I can say about the food that it was good but we got very, very little of it. There was no bread and the pice of fish I got was very small. My vegetable consisted of two sprigs of asparagus. You would think that they would be embarrassed to serve such a tiny meal. I can’t ever recall paying prices like that and leaving hungry. I Visit Cooperstown often but will not return to The Blue Mingo.

How can it get any better than sitting lakeside on Otsego Lake! Their lunches are so delicious and they always have very creative specials. However, my most absolute favorite, is the Caesar Salad with Lobster! Such a treat! I am not sure what they do, but it is seriously "out of this world"!!

Just a lovely place for a meal..seasonal, which is a shame, but worth the visit...always busy, always good food and service..

Our group of friends has been going to Glimmerglass Opera for a number of years and we always plan a dinner at The Blue Mingo on each trip. We love their diverse menu, which features pastas, fish and lots of Asian fusion items. Dinner on the deck overlooking Lake Otsego is the BEST! Book early—it really fills up during opera season.

This place never disappoints. From the old-fashioned Adirondack-style lake decor/ambiance, to the inventive, yet comfortable menu, to the great drinks and friendly and efficient service, it's a great choice. You can sit on the porch overlooking the lake, or on the lower patio down by the lake. One can pull up in a boat and dock for lunch, or drive to the restaurant and park behind. The gift shop is great and there is a full-service boat yard/gas dock for those coming by boat. The only real dining on the lake. A summer must do. Bar scene on weekend nights in the summer.
