Went with friends, big disappointment. Chicken French was loaded with sugar. The side of pasta, no salt in the pasta water, the sauce tasted of burned garlic. Fried shrimp, obviously frozen from a bag. Rib eye with Gorgonzola, gloppy heavy sauce. Red clam sauce, ok but seemed canned. This little town sooooo needs something other than one more of the same old thing.

Have enjoyed the Top of the Lake with friends and family. The food is excellent and the service is great! With a nice view of Keuka Lake, it's a fun place to socialize!

Located on keuka lake in penn yan, New York, this newly opened lunch and dinner casual establishment is run by an experienced couple who have set high standards for the food served as well as the service to patrons.

The "Liberty" restaurant in Penn Yan moved spectacularly to it's new location. The food is exceptional and portions ample, to say the least. The "King" Prime Rib is almost impossible to finish. The Delmonico steak has great flavor and is very large as well.The seafood is also delicious, including the Friday night fish fry special. The wine selection is good and they're not afraid to pour a nice sized glass at a great price.(The entire menu is reasonably priced). Call ahead if possible, because even in our rather small village the place is always packed (with returning customers, which is a good indication of its popularity) with a guaranteed large crowd on weekends. This restaurant is already one of the very best in the Finger Lakes and destined for great success.
