Yes, pie.
We start serving at 5 pm. So, get here early before today's southern fried feature sells out. FYI, today is Wednesday. See y'all later?

Locally Sourced BBQ for 4th of July in the Finger Lakes

We're all dressed up for Independence Day, buntings, flags... We go all out, but it's really about our locally sourced fare paired with our craft brews. Our latest Brewer's Choice is a Summer Sour Ale and it pairs well with every course.
It's the epitome of summer, 4th of July BBQ and craft beer. What's not to love. Chefs Anthony and Vincent are preparing a dry rubbed, slow roasted pulled pork from the Piggery, local, organic, happy pig, and a spicy slaw to go with. There'll be corn bread, too. They've drawn inspiration from our nation's colors as well. For red, white and blue vegetarian fare our chefs are creating a salad with fresh strawberries, blueberries and local Lively Run Feta cheese over organic greens. Save room for red, white and blue dessert, too- homemade vanilla mousse with strawberries and blueberries. YUM.
Our specials will be offered all weekend until they sell out. Get 'em while they last.
The Inn has stood witness to many of our nation's finest hours. Join us celebrating it's 184th Independence day.

Rogues' Harbor Brewing Crafts a Sour Ale for Summer in the Finger Lakes

Our Summer Sour Ale pairs well with Finger Lakes Cheeses

Rogues' Harbor Brewing Co's latest Brewer's Choice is here. It's a Summer Sour Ale. Sours have been sweeping the craft brewing scene for the past two summers. Immediately embraced by beer geeks, we think it's gone mainstream this year. Our brewer's were excited to jump on board and brew one for us this summer and the time has come.
Sours are brewed by introducing an acidifying bacteria during the fermentation process. They embrace the tart side of beer and are food friendly. We like that.
Ours is a naturally soured ale, bright golden in color, crisp and refreshingly tart. It's a warm weather beer, such a relief from the heat of a blazing summer day. We think it pairs well with our Finger Lakes Cheese Board and Fried Calimari appetizers. For an entree pairing, we think it's a winner with our Herb & Parmesan Haddock and Sun Dried Tomato Polenta Salad. It even compliments our Wild Berry Cobbler for dessert. It's a versatile craft beer that pairs well with every course.
Sour is here! Just like summer...Enjoy it while it lasts.

Mother's Day is here already! It's this Sunday, May 11 and we'll be serving dinner all day from noon till 8 pm. and our brew house tasting room will be open from noon till 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday. It's such a wonderful day, the whole family out with Mom. Chef Anthony has designed specials for the day with Mom (and warm weather ) in mind. All with wine and beer pairing suggestions as always.
The Seafood Turnover is my favorite. It's filled with shrimp, scallops, crab, roasted red peppers & Parmesan cheese, then served over a creamy vodka sauce. Save room for dessert: Strawberry Shortcake Napoleon with chocolate mousse layered in a shortcake biscuit topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Yum. Mom deserves it. Call or email today for reservations (607) 533-3535 or

Saint Patrick's "Weekend" 2014 at Rogues'

I grew up around Boston, a very Irish city, the Celtics, Southie, yeah...Anyway, only the actual day, March 17, was St. Patrick's Day. Everyone went all out, all green, all beer, heaping plate of corned beef and cabbage, Irish fiddle music everywhere, dancing, the whole Irish enchilada as it were. It's a wicked big day.I loved it. But here it seems to be more of a weekend event, so we're going with it this year since St. Pat's falls on a Monday. Monday is an underwhelming day for such a jubilant holiday.
So, we declare it St. Patrick's weekend. Meaning, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Chocolate Guinness Pudding, Cheddar Potato Soup, and craft beer, lots and lots of craft beer will be served Saturday, Sunday and MONDAY, March 15, 16 & 17. Our brewers have even crafted their first IPA just for the occasion. Not an Irish brew by any means, but we think it goes well with corned beef and cabbage. So why not? Saturday isn't technically St. Patrick's day either...But we'll be wearing green and serving all our St. Pat's specials.
Can't wait. Wear Green. Eat Corned Beef. Drink Beer. Big, big fun. All weekend.
Andy, a Rogues' server, in full regalia

I am grateful and in awe of Tompkin's County SPCA and all the hard work they do. Being a "no kill" shelter takes a lot of dedication, hard work and money. That's where we come in.

We can not wait to try all the craft brews they're bringing. A $15 donation gets you samples from everyone. Wrist bands can be purchased at the door or at Rogues' Harbor Inn and the SPCA in advance.
There will also be live music. Joel Kirshner & Tu can Do from 6 - 9. Silent Auction will include lots of art work, dog and cat goodie packages from Ithaca Agway, sterling Buddy tag from the Jewlbox, gift cards from several restaurants including Rogues' and Kilpatricks, port wine from Ports of NY, and tons more. Plus, our chef is working on a beer inspired tasting menu which will features a sample of threeof our craft brews, one for each course for a set price. 10 % of dinner proceeds that evening will, be donated to the SPCA along with all proceeds from the beer tasting and silent auction.

Rogues' New Year's Resolutions 2014

Never one to rest on our laurels, even after 18 years here in the heart of the Finger Lakes. As always we've come up with our top ten New Year's resolutions for this year. We do it every year and it really helps keep us focused on our goals. Here they are. If you think we've missed something email us. We really want to do our best. That's always #1 on the list.

1. Do our best in all that we do: greeting, serving, cooking, brewing, hosting, cleaning, fixing, creating.....
2. Cook with more beer.
3. Brew even more beer, maybe wholesale a bit more
4. Start catering.
5. Maintain this National Historic Landmark better than ever.
6. Host more charity events.
7. Add more in room amenities to our B&B.
8. Find more local farms and producers to provide ingredients for our dinners and drink lists
9.  Start bottling our salad dressings
10. Spend more time promoting Cayuga's East Shore
11. Research more about Rogues' involvement in the underground railroad
12....Actually not work on our days off...

Oops, that's 12. We're ambitious. So, here we go. The touch up painting has already begun. The chef just made a killer Honey Mustard Ale salad dressing and we just added Brita filter water pitchers to our B&B rooms. We lift a pint (of our own brew, of course) and toast, "Here's to our 18th year!"
