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!

Fantastic experience. Attentive and cordial service, phenomenal food, nice ambiance. Parking limited behind restaurant but ample on street. Never felt rushed or neglected. Fine attention to details. Really enjoyed this night out, and we will be back!

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.

Service by Hope and Hanna was outstanding. Excellent atmosphere with a pleasant bar area for a pre-dinner drink. Bar staff outstanding as well. I had the Pepperdelle with Beef and my spouse had the Pesto Fettuccine. Mine was a 4 star and my spouse's was a 5 star dish. Mine had a more than pronounced smoky flavor to it. Overall an outstanding dining experience.

Exquisite!
The menu is fit for foodies with a range of tastes and preferences. The service was tremendous!
I love a restaurant where I feel my needs are met almost without asking but where I am able to enjoy my company without the constant interruption of wait staff. This met the mark on all counts!

The Krebs is an extremely well executed restoration of an iconic lounge. We went for brunch on our anniversary and were treated like 1950’s Hollywood royalty! It was my first time there, and I cannot wait to return for the quintessential dinner date.

The food was good but not great. We expected great. We had oysters and shrimp and cheese plate to begin, and the shrimp and cheese plate was awesome. The oysters were so so. Not much to choose from as far as entries. There was no specials. What we did have was good. Overall, it was pleasant.

The restaurant is very charming. The food is really good. Everyone was satisfied with their cocktails and food. There is a very nice selections of wine. Shrimp cocktail was delicious as was the beets with ricotta cheese. Pork chop dinner with fingerling potatoes and asparagus was cooked perfectly. We also shared the garlic mashed.
We decided to order the hickory smoked shredded beef with pappardelle just to try and see if we liked it. The sauce was so overpowering with smoke that none of us good eat it. The also used square pasta.
Overall the dining experience was great and we would return

It’s a nice upscale restaurant but the food was only good not wonderful. My soup was the best part and as an appetizer was far too much. The dessert was ok but not special. My husband liked the pasta very much but I thought the fish was as bland.
The staff was very attentive and professional and the place itself is lovely.

Went into Krebs for my birthday and was stunned from the beginning. The original sign still out front! The Krebs team was very hospitable after we were an hour late from car troubles and did not let that setback ruin the evening. We were promptly greeted by our server Justin who took fabulous care of us. With one of our group vegetarian he helped her figure out exactly what she could enjoy. We enjoyed a 2013 puligny Montrachet white burgundy which paired perfectly with my swordfish which was cooked just right. The wine list here has so many hidden gems for you to enjoy. We finished with dessert, my creme brûlée was topped with a candle and they had my favorite sherry the 1987 PX Gran Reserva.

Thank you Justin and the Krebs team, will be back soon!

We went with another couple. My husband and I had never been there, and our friends had been, but a long time ago (not since the new ownership). Well, we all left very happy! We started with drinks out on the front porch (and if you're familiar with Skaneateles, you know you WANT to be on the street people watching. Drinks were wonderful (they have a creative cocktail menu). Very comfortable rooms (quite a few) with nooks and crannies to sit in while you wait for a table.
Service was fantastic (no obtrusive), and the food was great. The homemade rolls were a nice touch, and although they serve them to you, they give you an option of having more than one.
I had the pappardelle with sirloin (smokey and spicy, which I like), and the rest were steak. The portions are not huge (which is good for me but probably less than what men like). Everyone raved about the mashed potatoes (I know, right? but they must have been good!)
Also had dessert and coffee (the homemade chocolate/coconut ice cream and the flourless torte). No one complained afterwards....
Skaneateles is a wonderful day trip, and if you're looking for a very nice place to eat, make reservations ahead and enjoy a nice 1 1/2-2 hours.

We loved the Krebs. The drinks were great, the appetizers we tried were all delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant -- We loved our server. We ordered the fish and the steak, both were perfectly cooked and I wouldn't have changed a thing. I definitely recommend going here for a date night or to celebrate a special moment, the atmosphere lends to a great evening.

We waited at least ten minutes at the bar for cocktail service, even thought the bar only had 3 other people at it. My salad was so salty I couldn’t eat it and I ordered the cod only to find out after placing the order they were all out of the cod. The food was fair at best and the bill was almost 200 dollars. Definitely not worth the price. I will not be returning or recommending the Krebs

Krebs 1899 is one of our favorites. Lisa and I are restaurant junkies. Krebs can stand toe to toe With any restaurant in NYC or Beverly Hills or Aspen. We love the bar and the dining atmosphere is elegant perfect.

The staff is exceptional in every way.

My only suggestion would be to expand the menu by adding two or three more entries.

See you guys again soon. We are a walking advertisement for Krebs.
