The Krebs Is Donating 100% Of Its Proceeds To Local Charities


With a rich history dating back to 1899, The Krebs started as a husband and wife duo serving homemade meals to neighbors in the lakeside town of Skaneateles. Today, The Krebs is giving back to the community by donating 100% of its proceeds to local children and women charities.

The Krebs features wines from every region in the world while sourcing as many ingredients from local Finger Lakes farms. There are two menus offered, one is a bar menu and one is more formal for the sit-down restaurant. “We like to have people relax in the bar and then have a more formal setting in the dining room. So we don’t want people to feel pressured. It’s a very relaxed setting,” says executive chef, Jason Thurston.

With the warmer weather, The Krebs is planning to take full advantage of their beautiful porch with a Porch Party on Wednesdays that will feature shareable plates for guests to sample. Currently Thursdays are ladies nights, with complimentary glasses of champagne. And this August will mark 5 years for current owner, Kim Weitsman. There will be a celebration planned for that as well.

The Krebs is located at 53 West Genesee Street in Skaneateles. They are open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday from 5pm to 10pm. Sundays they are open from 11am to 3pm and closed Monday and Tuesday.
