Great ambiance in the bar, fantastic cocktails, and the bartenders Dane & Bernardo are the best in town!

At first we were concerned that the service might be "too much" in that we noticed a very large number of waitstaff in the dining area. However, this was not the case, and the staff was attentive to everything without being "smothering." Food was very good, although it was hard not to keep remembering how The Krebs used to be. The Krebs, historically, was a major "dining experience" and a meal there was truly memorable (for example, I can still recall my first dinner there in 1948, at which time I was just a kid...but for me, at that age, it was mind-blowing). Again, the meal Wednesday night was fine but essentially on a par with several other restaurants we visit. Just a tad on the noisy side, but that was due to the Porch Party event, which certainly made it a festive evening.

We had a wonderful dinner. The only negative is the length of time it took for food to come out of the kitchen. Everything was delicious and service was cheerful and attentive.

Being a first timer I was pleasantly surprised! Food was outstanding and I tried new things that I haven’t seen on other menus. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Only thing I would improve on are the timing of drinks. The cocktails were fantastic but we didn’t even receive them until after are Appetizers arrived. I ordered another drink before my main course came and the drink arrived after I had finished my dinner. Other than that things were great and I will for sure be returning to your establishment.

Thanks,

The food and drinks were wonderful with friendly service. If I lived in the area I would go at least monthly. While the price is slightly on the higher side of some places you definitely get food, drink and an overall experience well worth it. Not a single component of my meal felt disappointed. The only at all possible downside was that parking was slightly hard but after two passes a street spot opened.

We had an amazing time at the Krebs. We enjoyed the watermelon salad, which is so refreshing and delicious, as well as the brussel sprouts, but we got the sriracha on the side and just dipped the fried brussels in. Ive never had brussel spouts fried before and they are absolutely perfect that way. Even your most picky eater would enjoy these sprouts. Our cocktails were excellently crafted. I highly recommend the Bernardo, named after one of their bartenders, the drink is a twist on a mojito and is fabulously herbaceous. My mother was also pleasantly surprised they carry Aviation Gin, which is her favorite. We loved our experience at the Krebs and we will be coming back.

Krebs never disappoints. We have been there for dinner in the past, but this was our first time for brunch. We were a bit late for our reservation as we encountered a traffic jam in Rochester and a detour that added several miles, but we were seated promptly and graciously. Our waiter offered pastries as an amuse bouche, then followed with our entrées. I particularly enjoyed the shrimp and grits served with chorizo and chorizo oil.

Saul and Hannah were great servers! Only detail we were disappointed in was the fact that we were celebrating our anniversary and we ordered a dessert and no candle or writing on the dish so it didn’t feel special even though our servers were very aware that it was our anniversary. Other than that we enjoyed our evening !

This week I hosted some lady friends who came from all over the country. We had dinner at The Krebs and it was wonderful. They all raved about it afterwards. We started with cocktails, had oysters, salads, entrees (lamb, cod, pasta) and deserts. They even had gluten free home made rolls. Everything was lovely to look at (served in imaginative ways) and tasted divine. We loved their new menu. And we had attentive servers, and particularly liked the playful descriptions offered by Hannah. We will return again for sure.

Kim has developed a staff at the Krebs that are very attentive to the guest.
My Friend from North Carolina and I visited the Krebs on Wednesday July 31 for dinner.
Right from the start, the staff was wonderful and all worked as a team to insure that we had a great experience.
The food was very well prepared and delicious.
I would recommend the Krebs to anyone who enjoys a great dining experience.
Thank you to Kim and her staff for a memorable night.

My wife and I spent a romantic weekend in Skaneateles. We ate at The Krebs because we’ve eaten here before and really enjoyed the food and the experience. This time Hannah was the lady who took care of us for things like bread, water, etc. She singlehandedly made our experience fantastic. Her personality, service, desert and drink recommendations were spot on and we were blown away by her.

The restaurant did put a very loud group in the large center round table that detracted from our experience toward the end of our meal. The group only was drinking and didn’t have a care in the world for whom they disturbed with their volume. Kinda rude.

Overall experience was fantastic and was lead by your employee Hannah. We will be back for more of the fantastic food and wine.

We took our family of 7 adults to The Krebs 1899 and had a wonderful meal experience. The staff was amazingly attentive and made us feel welcome and comfortable throughout the meal. A special shout out to our server Hannah who was personable and interacted well with our family. The timing and presentation of the food was superb and the entrees were ample and delicious. And the location was convenient for an after dinner stroll to the main street of Skaneateles and the lake. We would highly recommend.

I had an amazing experience at brunch. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend their new mimosa carafe which they're doing as a special for only $15. Such a deal. The eggs Benedict was perfectly done and they were able to make a few meal substitutions for my vegetarian mother which I am very grateful for. I will definitely come back again.

Great service. Lovely ambiance. Ordered the chicken which was fine but not spectacular. My husband ordered the cod which he loved. I was surprised that duck was not an item offered. We mentioned that we were celebrating a special occasion which was not acknowledged. That was also surprising. Overall, a nice dining experience, but for me the menu is a bit pedestrian. There are better food choices at other restaurants in Skaneateles.

Sunday brunch was incredible! It is impossible to describe how delicious each item was. The cinnamon roll... not your average pastry, the bread pudding muffins, my 11 yr old had three. All before the main course. Eggs Benedict over crab... to die for. But scramble eggs... boring? Not at Krebs! Made with goat cheese, mushrooms and( I asked for) spinach, not like anything Amazing! Thank you for a special wonderful Sunday!

This was my first visit to Skaneateles and I was delighted to dine at The Krebs for Brunch. What a delightful experience. We reserved through OpenTable which is always a plus and we were greeted right away. Our waitperson, Taylor was phenomenal and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant and you should not be anything but delighted.

We had a 7:30 reservation. We sat for 80 min waiting on drinks only to finally go to the bar and purchase ourselves.

When asked what the delay was we were told, they had walk ins and were very busy and doing the best they could. Second inquiry, we were told they were out of glassware. They didn’t seem remorseful until after we decided to get our own drinks and then the same manager who told us they were out of glassware cam to apologize , and took our round of drinks off the bill.

It was my second time dining there and a total disappointment while entertaining my out of state friend who I raved to about this restaurant.
