We frequent the olney place for boat gas - it's price is competitive BUT the service and hours are outstanding. We often call ahead and order food when we are gassing up, the food is ready and waiting and it is awesome. The dock service is welcoming, informative and engaging. Venturing for the dock to the shop ( or stopping by car) is top notch. They have it all - deli, market, gift shop and craft beer that is sure to please any palate. For a sandwich, beer, ice, t- shirt, boat gas - it's a local gem!

The owner of The Olney Place is a renaissance man. His vision and execution are fantastic, especially when you find the results out in the middle of just about nowhere. This is a deli, tap room, and destination where you can also pick up basic items you may need to enhance your stay at the lake. The staff members are extremely friendly and happy to help.

Arrive by car or by boat (look for the Gulf gas sign) and enjoy great sandwiches and other treats you won't find anywhere else. And now you can grab one of many different craft brews they serve in the extended Tap Room overlooking the lake. Great place!

The sandwiches and the beer were all top rate-cna't be better anywhere ,at least in the area. Great view from the counter facing the lake-about 10 milk cans for the seats (also a few picnic tables outside.)

Thank you for the awesome review! Yes, we think we serve wonderful sandwiches, yet we are not a restaurant. We also think we serve excellent beers and we definitely aren't a bar. We really hope to be considered the funkiest market/deli/grocery store in the Finger Lakes. You unfortunately missed the delivery of our custom community style table that sits in the middle of our taproom overlooking the lake. We can now comfortably seat up to twenty people (if you are willing to sit on an old milk can!) And still plenty of picnic tables outside.. We look forward to your return.

Love, love love their breakfast sandwiches. Had weekend guests and didn't need a full breakfast. Decided to got to Olney's to get some bakegoods. There were egg & bacon sandwiches coming off the grill that looked great. Ordered six of those and everybody loved them. Still hot when we got them home too. Best place on our side to stop for coffee, and a quick breakfast or lunch. Plus they added a deck, Yea!

We rent a cottage on Keuka every year and the Olney is a regular part of our itinerary. This year we found they had redone the interior, including adding a bar with microbrews on tap that overlooks the lake. You can have some great beers while you chat with others. It feels more like a pub than a bar; just a great friendly atmosphere with a gorgeous view. And the beers are not ones you can get anywhere, so it's worth the trip. The sandwiches and sundries are still fabulous. If they don't have it you probably don't need it! Great value, great offerings, and really friendly staff. What more could you want?
