A nice restaurant and bar in town, set back from Main Street. Plenty of parking in a lot across the street. Food was good and they serve fish fries every day. Their creamy cole slaw was very tasty.

This was a nice little spot recommended to us by a local resident. The bar is very large and has a good selection of beer and wine. There was a line but getting a table for four didn't take more than 15-20 minutes (not sure if they take reservations) so we sat at the bar and enjoyed a beer while... More

Oh my god!! What a great place. Timmy G’s is a relatively small sized tavern offering a broad array of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and full plated entrees. They also carry a broad assortment of bottled beers, a limited offering of wine by the glass and soft drinks. Due to the facilities size coupled with its popularity the noise level can... More

This was our first visit to the Finger Lakes and we had talked to some locals that recommend Timmy G's. We were not disappointed! Only had to wait a few minutes and it was worth it. Great prices and very good place just minutes from were we stayed. Staff was very friendly also!

Luckily for us Timmy G's was recommended by a local as it's not on the main drag, we probably wouldn't have found it ourselves. Homey feel inside, with a large bar area and booths / tables to the side. Excellent service too. I had a Turkey Royale Club and it was so good! My husband loved that he could order... More

Not fancy, just good. It's plain inside with a sizeable bar, where I sat. My server was personable with a good sense of humor and very hard working. The menu was straightforward and there were many beers and wines from which to choose. Service was attentive. I tried a local reisling which was quite good. The chicken parm was also... More

We went here on a Friday for a family dinner. Simple little place. No fancy decor and very few windows, but the food was in a word amazing. We had the Chicken quesadilla appetizer which was big enough for 3-4 people and arrived within minutes of our drinks. My husband had the prime rib (medium rare) and it was great.... More

Food and service were both great and price was reasonable. It's not a large restaurant, but with advance notice, they did a super job with our group of 14. Our reservation was for 6:30. We were attended to in a timely manner with both drinks and food. Were out of there by 8pm. None of our group had any complaints... More
