“Timmy G's, just what the doctor ordered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My family and I visited Keuka lake this past Summer for three weeks. We were a pretty large crowd of 8+. We ate at Timmy G's twice and would have eaten there more times if we had "found it" sooner than half way through our vacation. Trying to please 8 people with one restaurant is tough and it was a unanimous decision to return to Timmy G's the second time. Between us all we probably had half the menu and no complaints. More importantly answers were yes, my meal was fabulous! Clearly the owners are active in their restaurant as it shows. Nice job Timmy G's! Great local eatery. Get specific directions how to get there. It is a little tricky and worst case go to the Topp's supermarket in Penn Yann and ask from there. If I recall correctly you could walk to the restaurant from Topp's but not easily seen from there.

“Great food, great service, great prices...Need I say more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a great local place. Small, not fancy but clean and comfortable. Great comfort food...try the pot roast. The place was packed and our server was hopping. But she was on top of everything and very pleasant. Good beer and local wine selection. Everything from top to bottom was awesome and when the bill came...$44 for the two of us including drinks. Leave a big tip. These ladies work hard and you will still be well below your budget.

“Lots of choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Three girlfriends decided to try this restaurant for lunch. We were all pleased with the menu -- many selections. And we ordered 3 different lunches and all were delicious. The service was good, almost quick. The waitress forgot to bring my cola. She brought the others and left and came back to take our orders. At that point I asked again for my drink and she immediately got it. I would definitely return to this restaurant. The only negative was parking. There is a municipal lot but every spot was filled so I had to park in another area further away.

“Good food and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Lots of beers on tap and a varied menu. Bone-in prime rib is available Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The 3 slider plate has a beef burger, a crab cake and BBQ pork with cole slaw. A great combination with crispy fries. The service is super friendly and efficient.
