A good place to get a decent meal at a very decent price. Good selection of food, and very pleasant staff.

They might as well hang a sign on the door No Black People Allowed! The first time I went my black friends omelet wwas riddled with egg shells. So we decided to try it again to see if we had a problem. We waited 50 minutes and out food never came out so we left. There might have been 8 people in the place.

My husband and I early morning breakfast with another couple. We were seated promptly and there were only two other couples in the resturant. It took 20 mins to get our drink order and another 10 to get served. Our orders were taken and then the wait. 10,15,20 minutes passed our waitress was nowhere to be seen. After 30 minutes (and no drink refills) one person at our table said "that's it we can leave" and our breakfast appeared. Cold omlets, pancakes and eggs. We will not be back. The old Savards was about friends,great service and good food. Not the new Savards.

My husband and I have been going to Watkins Glen for 25 years for our own wine tour. In those 25 years the majority of the time we looked forward to breakfast at locally owned Savard's. This time it just wasn't the same. The looks inside have changed, as has the atmosphere. It used to a fun-loving, bustling breakfast place. We went on Sunday morning (which is usually extremely busy with church-goers). It wasn't! The have re-done the inside, so now they have no booths. The atmosphere was glum and rigid. The food used to be the best breakfast in town. That is no longer true. I just don't know how you can ruin eggs, bacon, and home fries. The eggs looked mangled, the bacon was burnt, and the home fries were more like mashed potatoes. The prices are still very reasonable but the quality is just not at all what it used to be. All of the waiters/waitresses seemed like they didn't enjoy what they were doing. We always looked forward to the place mats (which were a signature there), they are no longer there either. Year after year we recognized the help (only recognized one person this time). We always used to look forward to go back the second morning before we took off for home. We didn't even have the urge to go back. I really hope they take the critics advice and bring back the "Old Savard's". We won't be going back until next Memorial Day weekend so they have time to improve.

Savard's has a local diner feel to it. It has not changed much over the years. Decent food just nothing extraordinary about the place.
