Pizza Hut: quick bite to eat
Normally I don't bother stopping in these pizza restaurants because they tend to be poor table service (most business is call-in and pick-up or delivery) and not very comfortable. But we were hungry and on the main street in Penn Yan and everyone wanted to stop for coffee and a bite to eat; so we ended up here.
It wasn't too bad inside; relatively clean and not too many people (although there was a steady stream of people coming in and picking up pizzas). We got a plate of mild Buffalo Wings and Honey/Mustard Wings and coffees to go around. The bill was about $20 for the four of us and we were back on the road in under an hour.
The decor is diner-like with stiff booths and red/white tables. It is counter-service ordering and then you take the order to the table or booth to eat (or have it wrapped for take home as many customers were obviously doing). The staff were all young people but were polite and the food was prepared fairly quickly (within ten minutes).
I wasn't badly disappointed in the meal and would stop back in for another quick bite to eat but not sure if it is my kind of place for a big dinner.

Miller's Essenhaus, The Red...
Miller's Essenhaus, The Red Balloon (hearty home cooking in a cheap and family-oriented atmosphere, if you can ignore all the cigarette smoke)
The Essenhaus is run by Mennonites - who, sadly, are being used by Penn Yan to draw in tourist dollars (all $10.). The service is great,and the food is excellent
Favorite Dish: Venison Sausage, a Penn Yan treat, fresh off the racks in October or November.
