After touring the Wadsworth Homestead, my Mom and I enjoyed a very tasty lunch with great service at the Big Tree Inn. Do take time to take a walk through this historical building. It's a must do, if spending time in Geneseo.

My wife and along with 2 other couples enjoyed a nice lunch at this pleasant inn restaurant recently.

Our group enjoyed their club sandwich with yummy fries, minestrone soup, excellent french onion soup, salad and IPA beers, wine and sangria.

Treat yourself to a nice meal at the Big Tree Inn which I recommend to you.

On the pricier side but also more upscale than some other places in the area, it has been a trusted restaurant for many years

I feel you can no longer go to the Big Tree for food, perhaps for a little ambiance, maybe...this is a sad thing. Our food was dreadful. Fried shrimp, with cold centers, on a hot plate of coleslaw, it was sent back, we were told they cooked a fresh batch....nope, lukewarm fried shrimp, again on an obviously microwaved plate. .Switched to a beet salad(complete with canned small beets)..What are they doing there? Besides playing Christmas music in the background, honestly? Our server/bartender tried, hostess said we wouldn't be charged for 2.5 shrimp entrees...This must be why so few people where there..sad

Kathy, our server, exceeded expectations. She knows her menu, is attentive, yet respectful of your space. She cleaned up a spilled beverage without making my wife feel like it was a problem. Kathy is a true professional.
Now for the yummy food items...The Roast Beet Salad (with fried goat cheese balls) was special as was Butternut Squash Risotto and Lobster Arancini in a delightful sauce.
Sandwiches are also available including a wonderful turkey club sandwich.
Tip...students can use their meal cards in this restaurant.
Enjoy
