This is a lovely mansion with exceptional views of Keuka Lake in the beautiful Finger Lakes. That being said, the real star is the delicious, well prepared food.
The menu for our Rolling Through the Finger Lakes group was well received by our hungary group of motorcycle riders. The entrees included Lobster Ravioli, Chicken Francise, and Pork Loin with raspberry sauce. The ravioli was the standout dish of the meal, tender ravioli filled with moist lobster and cheeses. This was the best lobster ravioli I have eaten. Very yummy.
The meal started with some light, buttery rolls. I think I could have eaten a basket by myself - too bad they ran out so quickly. Then we were served a small cup of a hearty vegetable beef soup oozing with a deep meat flavor and savory seasonings. The buffet line was well stocked with the entrees mentioned above plus salad greens, rice, and steamed vegetables. Everything was well worth our long wait.
The wait staff had a bit a problem keeping up with drinks and clearing tables, but they appeared eager to please. Frankly, I think we overwhelmed the small number of servers with our 75+ people.
This place is high on my list of places to eat in the Finger Lakes.
