The Olney Place is by far the best location to visit on the lake. The sandwiches are great and they have the best beer you can find. If you're looking for a place to grab a bite to eat or pick something up on the fly, you can't really top The Olney Place in terms of quality and convenience. They also have some of the best staff around. Very welcoming and always looking to help you out with anything you might need.

This place was such a nice surprise, I just had to write a review.

We were recently visiting Keuka Lake wineries and stopped here on a whim to get some real food. The guys on staff when we went in were college age, but they provided some of the best customer service we have received in a long time and I felt that it needed to be recognized.

We were greeted when we walked in with a smile and when we started looking at the sandwich board, someone quickly offered to answer any questions we had. We asked for a recommendation and they said that the turkey Rachel sandwich was their best seller so we tried it. It was fantastic and grilled to perfection. We went outside to sit on the porch to enjoy our sandwich. The guy who waited on us inside was leaving and he made a point of asking how our sandwiches were and what brought us to the area before he left. We finished our sandwiches and were gathering our things when when the next guy was coming on shift and as he walked by, he asked how our sandwiches were and could he throw out our plates for us? I don't know who trained these kids, but you're doing something right.

It's not fine dining, it's a cute little cafe/deli but it was a really good sandwich and a good experience. They had lots of local products on the shelves too.

Visited here a few time whilst staying at Viking Resort Motel down the road. The hot sandwich selection offered was epic -all mouth watering! They offered some unique flavour combinations and some old old favourites - I could have eaten them all. Breakfast was also decent. Even better was the selection of beers including some less common brands. We were lucky enough to meet the owner, Seth, who gave us some great beer suggestions. I was just happy that they had Racer 5 (very hard to get in the UK!). Seth also shared his wealth of local knowledge to help us plan our stay around Keuka - really great guy.

Stopped in for lunch during our wine tasting excursion. Well stocked deli with a great craft beer selection. Sandwiches were fantastic and reasonably priced. Sat outside on this warm October day and had a great view of the lake. We will visit again!!

Had a great time at his place. Menu was good and worth checking out. If you want to travel 8 miles south from penn yan ny south on Route 54 this place has the view for the value. Come enjoy some food and good times. Frisky
