Came in town for a music festival with friends. Highly recommended at the B and B we are staying at. Awesome food! Wife had grilled cheese which she loved. I had the fish dinner- great! Friends had steak sandwich and lamb. All to high reviews. Looking forward to going back during the course of our stay.

Four of us adults went to thirsty Owl Restaurant to have dinner. A very disappointing limited menu, so we left without ordering. Traveled over to the Americana Vineyards Crystal Lake Cafe. When we walked in we thought it was going to be another let down. Why? Tiny room with kitchen tables and chairs. But, Wow, Menu: Hubby and I had... More

As we sat down to our table and our server arrived, she explained with great pride, "They make everything here - even the ketchup". Her pride was well placed - food was in fact excellent. We had quesadillas and a fresh salad with chicken. Both dishes were outstanding. We'll definitely go back.

Food was average, nothing remarkable. Disappointing for the #1 restaurant pick in Interlaken, NY but all right for pub grub.

Excellent food, brilliant atmosphere (sun, smiles, laughter, burping), clever wait staff, and delicious food. If I was on a desert island and could only order one dish, I would order the GRILLED CHEESE. It's incredible---three or four cheeses, home-baked bread, and.........a pickle. STUNNING! I dreamed of this grilled cheese last night. THAT'S how good it is!

A nice and casual café with an interesting menu and some excellent, finger-licking food to back it up. And super friendly service.

Great Crystal Lake Cafe with delicious food and friendly service. Daily specials on the board are healthy and well-priced. Attached to the winery where the staff is well-versed and most helpful. Nice gift shop as well.

This place has the best food, cooked and served by people who care. Our favorite meal here is brunch, but you can find wonderful lunch items too. Most ingredients are sourced locally, and they have a huge list of their own wines. Get there early, as the dining room tends to fill up quickly on weekends

Had a wonderful lunch at the cafe after sampling some wine at the winery next door - which helped us pick out the exact wine we wanted to enjoy with lunch. Much cheaper to buy an entire bottle of wine than pay by the glass when dining. We had the caramelized quesadilla - best I have ever eaten, the New... More

We drove an hour and a half to have brunch here and it was well worth it! From pancakes to fancy benedicts there were plenty of options on the menu to please everyone in our party. The quality of the food is excellent and something that you would expect to find in a large city. The atmosphere is bright and... More
