We generally stop here when we go to the Finger Lakes. Food is always very good, priced well, servings generous and the service is friendly. Décor is very plain but the outdoor patio seating is nice however there is no lake view. Wine is good here, we always pick up a few bottles to take home.

We visited due to a family member's recommendation. Since was Sunday, the menu was a little more limited (brunch only that day), but everything we had was very good. I had an excellent lamb burger; hubby had very good bulgogi (with a bit of a kick), and the kids were also happy with their food. The wine slushy hit the... More

We live near the American vineyard and Crystal Lake Café and often eat there. The food is honest and very tasty but not fancy; they generally offer a flatbread, a pulled pork sandwich (one of my favorites), battered fried fish (also great) and a few daily specials. Portions are large and the dishes are all very flavorful. With this I... More

We stopped in for dinner last weekend and were pleased to find that despite it being Cornell graduation weekend, they were able to seat our party of four. The patio was very inviting, but completely full, so we sat inside. The dining area indoors is limited, but the tables are comfortably spaced out. The staff members were friendly and the... More

Great food & great service at a fair price. I had the lamb burger with a slab of fete cheese. The burger was cooked exactly to my order and was perfect.

We attended a dinner provided by the cafe at Americana, but it included music by a 3-piece band stand up bass, banjo, and guitar. Great vocals with the twangy sound reminiscent of O Brother, Where Art Thou? with George Clooney.
