Hawkeye Bar & Grill

Whether you're looking to try something new or can't wait to sink your teeth into an old favorite, the Hawkeye Bar & Grill summer menu is full of memorable meals. Our Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, with Carolina Slaw and Sweet Potato Fries, brings a bit of southern flair to the menu, while our New England Fish & Chips is a traditional favorite that is sure to please. For something on the lighter side, the Summer Berry Salad offers a bit of sweetness with your greens. Locals and visitors alike love our Butcher's Burger, and this summer brings a meatless take with the Vegan Banh Mi Burger, served with Pickled Vegetables and Sriracha Aioli. With these options and many more, you're sure to find your flavor!


If you're looking for a cozy date night during your summer getaway, our destination steakhouse 1909 is a perfect fit. Our culinary team has some creative offerings, including starters like a  Lobster Corn Dog, Charcoal Grilled Baby Artichokes, and Charred Octopus. Our specialties include options like Miso Yuzu Marinated and Roasted Cod, Mint and Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb, and Peruvian Roasted Chicken. Of course, as a destination steakhouse you'll find a variety of the freshest cuts of meat including Filet Mignon, NY Strip, Porterhouse, and more.

Leatherstocking Golf Bar & Grill

A round on our award-winning Leatherstocking Golf Course is certainly one of the highlights of an Otesaga getaway, but so are the offerings waiting for you at the "19th hole", our Leatherstocking Golf Bar & Grill. Guests can refuel after their time on the fairway with some delicious casual fare, including a Margherita Flatbread, BLT, Grilled Vegetable Wrap, and a variety of beers, cocktails, and wines to celebrate a successful golf outing. The outdoor patio offers views of the golf course as well as Otsego Lake, adding to the relaxed atmosphere.

Fire Bar

During your summer stay, you'll definitely want to grab a seat at our Fire Bar, where guests can enjoy an enticing selection of liquors, wines and craft beers with the beauty of Otsego Lake on display. Fire Bar is the ideal venue for catching up with friends or enjoying some time alone with that special someone. Enjoy a cocktail under the stars, while sampling small plate fare like Tempura Battered Shrimp, Duck Rillette, and Parmesan Fritters. If you're looking to end the evening on a sweet note, our popular Strikeout Stout Double Chocolate Layer Cake is definitely the way to go!
