Barkeep Ken was very knowledgeable about his beer and wine selection and local lore. Food was OK. We had their their version of a Rochester garbage plate. Nothing special. A bit pricey for bar food.

The Village Tavern was good enough for supper & a brew. Very friendly hostess, but I was more excited by the reputation (re the selection of beer) than the experience. The best part of the evening was the piano player.

This place is an absolute great experience. Cozy place with EXCELLENT bar and Wonderful food. A little expensive for the area, but you really get what you pay for here. Whenever in town it is an absolute must for me to stop even for a quick drink. I would rate 10 stars out of 10 every time.

Passing through the area with friends and what a treat to find Hammondsport and this restaurant. The food was excellent and the friendly service was just like you would expect in a small home town; we felt like we belong there. Great town in every way.

Stopped here on the last night of our trip. They had a wonderful piano player and wonderful manager and/or owner. The food was great and staff was friendly. I would definitely make sure to stop if you are in town. Don't waste time at restaurants on the lake. This is the place to go.

I had dinner here the one night I was in Hammondsport. The food was excellent and they even had a special grape cheesecake that was delicious. The gentleman serving me at the bar was very personable and made me feel welcome. As others came and went, it was apparent this place was almost like Cheers--everyone got along like they were...

When I think of nice restaurants in Rochester, I do think tehre are a lot of snobs at these places. This place was more of a high-end palce, yet the staff and clientel were all down to Earth. I'm not a huge craft beer fan (which is all they have on draft except Genny Cream Ale), but some of them... More

My husband and I ate here our first night in Hammondsport. The food was excellent (I highly recommend the Jambalaya). Our server was friendly and attentive. Overall a very nice experience.

This is my kind of place. Loved the bar atmosphere and the piano player was a great addition. My fisherman's soup was outstanding. The others in my party seemed to enjoy their food too. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient and I really liked the guy who acted as host. I wish I lived closer. I'd definitely go back.
