Glenwood Pines

1213 Taughannock Blvd., Ithaca, NY - (607) 273-3709
The main reason for coming to this friendly roadhouse overlooking Cayuga Lake is a Pinesburger. That’s a six-ounce beef oval topped with a couple of slices of cheese wedged into a length of Ithaca Bakery French bread with lettuce, tomato slices, onion slices and 1000 island dressing: a classic!

When it originally opened just after World War II, The Pines was a small farm stand with local produce and homemade ice cream. Today, its Pinesburger and fish fry are world-renowned.

The house specialty, a Pinesburger, was invented in the mid-1970s by previous owners Lee Denman and Dave Pepin. Note the 1000 Island dressing underneath the lettuce: the essential condiment.
