Humphrey House was a long-time restaurant located on Route 441 in Penfield. The location has been a restaurant (as just The Humphrey House) since 1978, under two different owners. After closing in 2011, the building was bought by Stefanie and Steve Wilkinson, who opened a new restaurant in the location.2
The building began as a wing of Daniel Penfield's home near the Four Corners. This wing was eventually detached and moved across the street, where its residents included Dr. Maxwell Humphrey, after whom the building is now named.3
As The Humphrey House
The restaurant's name came from the building's original owner, Dr. Maxwell Humphrey - and the restaurant had "folksy shadowboxes of medical paraphanalia that belonged to the" doctor.
A review by Anne Palumbo in 2009 was quite favorable noting that " ... the Videtti's have made some minor but significant changes to the menu. They've updated several entrees with interesting ingredients and sauces; they've added new nightly specials; and the've made the lunch menu available all day long." Recommendations: Chicken Caesar Salad with grilled chicken, fresh greens, freshly grated Asiago, and homemade croutons. Steak Sandwich with tender beef, caramelized onions, and tangy bleu cheese. Seasoned Fries - "crispy and addictive".
