Bk8d & Loaded Celebrates Their Grand Opening in Penn Yan 


On Wednesday February 2nd, the Vivier’s and their staff opened their new restaurant concept, Bk8d & Loaded, located on 1 Basin Street in Penn Yan in the old Penn Yan Village Police Station. They celebrated with a small ribbon cutting with the Finger Lakes Economic Development Center, Yates County Chamber of Commerce, Mayor MacKerchar and Chief Dunham. 


“It has been a pleasure to work with owners John and Teresa Vivier, who continue to start and sustain successful businesses in our community. Home to the former Village police station, they have assisted with the restoration and redevelopment of this long-vacant building and have helped provide wholesome entertainment to families and friends while enjoying a unique dining experience. We are confident that Bk8d & Loaded will be a vibrant addition to Yates County for years to come,” said Mike Lipari of the Economic Development Center. 


The menu features items like Build Your Own Loaded Bowl, different loaded baked potatoes, macaroni & cheese, nachos, and so much more. Their large wall of games enhances the dining experience and creates an enjoyable and inviting atmosphere for all ages. You can even get a photo opportunity with an old jail cell! 


We are thrilled to be part of the amazing growth happening in our community. We look forward to being a part of your family’s game night!” commented Teresa Vivier. The current hours are Wednesday-Saturday from 11am-10pm and Sunday’s 11am-6pm, but will change in the spring.
