Whether it's laid-back or fine dining, succulent break-out-the-bib BBQ or exquisite multi-course meals, farm-to-table cuisine or unique eclectic fare, you'll soon discover food is another major reason people flock to Steuben.
As the second largest wine region in the country, you won't want to forget to add a winery tour to your Finger Lakes dining experience. Not only is the Finger Lakes region home to over 130 wineries, but some of the best are located in or around the charming village of Hammondsport. The deep slender lakes, like Keuka Lake, not only make the area scenic, but they also play a part in extending the growing season. Our winemakers have been able to produce award-winning Finger Lakes wines for years.
Of course, if you're a craft beverage lover at heart, don't worry. We have a selection of some of New York State’s best breweries, award-winning distilleries that offer daily tastings, and the state’s most awarded farm cidery.
And with an assortment of food-related trails—we’re talking local fan favorite ice cream shops and burger joints, as well as a trail devoted to chocolate—you’re taste buds are in for a treat.
