“Decent meal with a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

They've recently changed their name to "Top of the Lake." Beautiful view of the north end of Keuka Lake offset average food. We arrived at 5:30 with no reservation and had our choice of seating on the wide deck overlooking the lawn and docks along the shore. Our server was friendly and accommodating. Within easy walking distance of Fingerlakes B&B, my husband and I indulged in sharing a bottle of Keuka Lake wine and savored a leisurely meal on the deck with no rushing by the staff. A perfectly lovely late-summer evening.

“The Liberty Restaurant has moved”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Tonight we phoned to reserve for dinner at the Liberty Restaurant. We were told it has moved to the location where Top of the Lake Restaurant is located. It is still called Top of the Lake, so Liberty Restaurant doesn't exist any more.

Food was delicious. The service was very fast and friendly. (Although info needs updated to "top of the lake," it's not the place/picture shown....it has moved)

“Supposed best restaurant in Penn Yan, NY”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

After hearing rave reviews online and from locals we decided to check out the restaurant on a Thursday night. Service was exceptional while our menu choices were not. One of the specials was not what we expected and the delmonico steak was the toughest I have ever eaten. Could not finish.
