Stopped in recently for a Friday lunch. The restaurant had a good crowd; tables full, bar patrons. Great meals with generous portion size. Friendly, fast service but we were never hurried or rushed as we lingered over dessert and conversation. Look forward to summer on the deck if we can find a seat. A new Penn Yan must!!

We have watched several operators come and go at what is now called Top of the Lake. The present owner, Suzanne, was a waitress for one owner. She and her husband, Cecil, have produced a winner. The menu is great. The food is wonderful, and the service is spectacular. We enjoyed leisurely drinks at the bar before dinner. Also, the wine list is large, featuring many local wineries.

We went here for Mother's Day and everything was great. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meals they ordered. Friendly staff who gave us excellent service. Parking could be a little more organized but just love the view of the lake and this is a great restaurant!

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

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!
