“Great Value”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stumbled across Timmy G's as we were driving around Penn Yan on our first night in the town. We noticed lots of people going into the restaurant, and on a quiet, cold Friday night we thought this was a good sign. As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted by such a friendly, happy hostess we knew we had to stay. It is obviously a local neighbourhood favourite as everyone seemed to know each other. We had the clam chowder which was very good and sandwiches/salads. The food was hot, well cooked and flavourful. For a total of $30, which included a glass of beer, glass of wine and tip, we thought our first meal in Penn Yan was a bargain. I will visit Timmy G's the next time we visit Lake Keuka.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

A great upgrade from the old Red Rooster. Friendly service and a nice wine and beer selection. Excellent crab cakes and a delicious pork chop special.

“Really Good”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This place is a bit off the beaten path, back a side alley but a hidden gem. Food is great, pleasant staff. A good place for lunch

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This visit took place on a Monday during the height of Summer. Maybe it's better now but that day, the food quality was poor. I chose the pulled pork sandwich which their menu stated they made fresh daily. Not that day. The flavor was unappealing, the meat was very dry and seemed like it had been rewarmed several times.

“Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

For anyone who remembers this place as the Red Rooster, you need to try it again. It's light years better with a new owner. Excellent staff, very reasonable prices, and great food. If you're tired of snob food with names you can't pronounce, or if you just like good food, you need to give this place a shot. I've been there at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Exxxxcellennnnt!!
