Reviewed May 18, 2014

Good food and a great view of the lake area. Liver & onions were delicious and the grilled scallop dinner was yummy. Good service.

“Delicious dinner!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Top of the Lake Restaurant is a great place for a meal in Penn Yan. It's busy on the weekend evenings tho, so make sure to call for a reservation. Sue and Cecil are terrific hosts, and Chef Gilligan makes delicious meals - be sure to check out the specials!

Had an evening concert in Penn Yan. Dinner at the Top. Sue has brought the same great food from the Liberty to the lake. Great food, great service. Great location.

“A Lake view that can 't be beat”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Wow - the owners of this restaurant formerly ran The Liberty Restaurant at the other end of town. They have moved their restaurant to the top of the lake in Penn Yan which is the best venue in Penn Yan. The food and value is excellent, the service superior and the owners have a very deep rooted desire to make this the best restaurant in the Finger Lakes. Hats off to the Hubert's for moving this beautiful location into one that has the best food in the area.
