Our full menu is listed below.

Our Food

Our menu is prepared from scratch in our kitchen, mostly from local FLX products from just down the road. It is a great place to stop for lunch while in the Finger Lakes.  We continue a decades long tradition of working closely with local farmers to offer fresh and delicious local fare.   Inspired, delicious food sourced from Finger Lakes farms is the perfect complement to a glass of wine while enjoying our cozy dining room and warm fireplace.

Chef Jeremy Personius has created a great menu with soups, salads, local potato fries and bistro made sauces, pastas, gyros, grilled cheese sandwiches, and panini.
