I've been to Park Inn several times now since moving to Keuka Lake. The food, especially the small plates, is consistently delicious and made with high-quality local produce. The wine list is beautiful - the sommelier, Jason, has put together a list of local wines by the glass alongside a bottle list of several hundred reasonably priced bottles from the Finger Lakes and around the world. The Park Inn is the best restaurant on Keuka Lake by a large margin and one of my favorites in the Finger Lakes as a whole!

Excellent wine choices, extensive menu. Dining under the outdoor tent makes it special. Wish they could keep the tent but I understand it’s coming down in October.

One of the better restaurants in the Finger Lakes. Hammondsport is a lovely town. Food and service very good. In favor of devilled eggs and lamb.

The Park Inn, due to staff shortage, forces people to use outdoor seating. My wife and I ate at this restaurant on a Thursday evening in the summer when the nearby park sponsors live music. Although we enjoyed the style of music very much, the music can be loud.

The restaurant offers a varied menu, and the food is very good. It tries to bring in fresh local ingredients. The menu's offerings include some common items, but it does so with an interesting twist. I chose the BBQ plate which included two kinds of meat with different sauces. Accompanying the meat were a housemade potato salad, spring salad, and cole slaw. All additions were delicious.

My wife selected a southern-inspired mixture of Fried Chicken and Waffles. With her meal came blackeyed peas and yams. I was allowed to sample a portion of her meal, and I found it again delicious.

The wine list was extensive, both in quantity of offerings and regions of origin containing both domestic and international. You can order both by the glass or the bottle. The restaurant also provides the option of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage offerings.

Our server was young, but he was knowledgeable about the items on the menu. He had enough time between us and other tables to provide personable service. Our food was served with appropriate time in between courses. We never felt rushed even though there were many customers that evening.

My wife and I had visited this restaurant several years ago when it was under different management. The new owners have made major changes to the interior. As a result, the interior has become much classier. The park part of the town itself has also elevated its style.

Since the outdoor seating occupies part of the main street in Hammondsport, it is advisable to park on a side street. My wife and I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for a special occasion.

We ate outside, in a magnificent tent (extremely secure) and enjoyed food prepared from scratch using as many local ingredients as possible. Unfortunately, there were no live musicians in the park last night (as there often are on Thursday, Fri and Sat). Pleasant experience with the best food on Keuka (in my opinion).

The restaurant was operating under pandemic circumstances at the time (in a large tent set up on the street. Unfortunately, a thunderstorm struck during dinner, and water was streaming over the entire pavement under the tent. That said, the food and service was good, although the ambience was rather loud.

Perfection. I wasn’t sure what to expect since there were no pics of outdoor seating but they have a great tent and they’ve closed the Main Street in front of the restaurants. We tried cocktails, apps, mains and desserts and everything was perfect. Our server Holly was pleasant, prompt and helpful despite the fact she was soaked from a rain storm that passed through while she made sure guests were comfortable and dry. I can’t wait to go often and try their seasonal/local menu

Had a wonderful server -Kate and great food. Keep the beet and carrot salad! The host was a tad rude when. I noted we were 3 instead of 5 and I had changed it online. He said it was still 5 on his tablet. Kate made up for this!

We ate outside under the tent. There was a band playing music in the common adjacent to the tent. I loved that the Park Inn supports local wineries by offering them on their menu. Kate was our wonderful waitress. The Squash Blossom appetizer was so good, I wished we had ordered two appetizers. The Seafood Stew and the Lamb Rack were also very good. For dessert, we had Carrot Cake and the Chocolate Creme Bulee, both very good. Kate really added to our dinner, she was so friendly and offered suggestions during our meal. We are looking forward to returning for another food adventure.

As a food and wine snob the Park Inn lived up to the buzz. We didn’t partake in the wine as we were wining it up in the finger lakes but the drink menu was great as well. We had the fried oysters for an appetizer, followed by the swordfish and seafood stew. Everything was spot on. We will be returning soon.

We were in Hammondsport for a long weekend and decided to return to the Park Inn. This was actually our 3rd visit to the Park Inn. They have great food and a great wine list. This evening I chose the ricotta gnocchi. I was a bit disappointed in this dish. They had substituted onions for the carrots indicated on the menu and I didn't find any spinach. The sauce had no flavor to it. Even after adding a bit of salt, it needed something. We ordered the southern fried cauliflower as our appetizer. It was extremely good. The grits in the coating were a wonderful twist to the batter. My husband ordered the Roasted Lamb. It was fantastic. Dessert we chose carrot cake and coffee. Excellent. The carrot cake came with a side of pineapple sorbet, which was awesome.

I would go to the Park Inn again, just not choose that entree. Our other visits were great, so perhaps it was just a bland sauce.

Ethan was amazing! From the moment we were seated - no wait time! - through dessert Ethan was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. We were never interrupted and our dining experience flowed perfectly. The food was great as well. Fish cakes were flavorful and the deviled eggs appetizer never disappoints! Will definitely be back!!

Came into area to celebrate our anniversary. Park Inn was recommended for dinner. My wife ordered the flank steak and I ordered the BBQ plate. Both were incredible. Server was very attentive. The outside seating under the tent was enjoyable.
