I thought the total expense
I thought the total expense of Friends Lake Inn was very high. The food was OK, nothing to rave about. The costs however were very high.

We have celebrated our anniversary at the Friends Lake Inn on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The accommodations, service and food have always been excellent.

The food was really excellent
The food was really excellent but way over priced. The dining room a bit depressing and dark. Not what I had in mind on a beautiful summer night. If I go back I was advised to try the wine bar..... still good food but much more reasonably priced.

Small menu, but very well done...our four entrees, in 2 nights, were pleasing to the eye and pleasing to the palate. Service was leisurely and slow; but not detracting from the overall dining experience.

Everything about our dinner was perfect! We were seated in an out-of-the-way table as requested (it was our wedding night). The food was amazing and the server and host were extremely friendly. We were given chocolates on a plate with "congratulations" written on it (in chocolate!) after dinner, as well as glasses of champagne to celebrate.

Wonderful Food, Service, Atmosphere
I went here with my parents for their 35th wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in the staff made it a wonderful night, they were extremely attentive and polite. They even went an extra step to make the night special by printing commemorative menus. The food was nothing sort of excellent, the dishes we seasonal, fresh and delicious. They had an extensive wine list and a sommelier that was well educated in every bottle on the list. he paired our tastes to a wonderful merlot, which we later bought a bottle of in their wine store, after a tour of the cellar itself! The Inn itself is also very beautiful and scenic. Overall this experience, food, and staff made this night one to remember. I look forward to another visit in the future.

Wonderful Adirondacks hideaway
Friends Lake Inn is a wonderful place to stay! We had the Field Stone Room for the night, all wood floors and walls, beautiful stone fireplace, rustic, but very comfortable. The dinner was superb and service excellent, and the wine list is amazing, pages and pages of excellent wines. We had the Mondavi Reserve Cab 2004, WS 95, and it was great. The morning walk to the lake, with mist on the lake, and watching the loon diving to catch its breakfast was great. A "Golden Pond" experience.

A Quiet Birthday Celebration
Our evening out to celebrate my wife's birthday at Friends Lake Inn was nothing but fabulous! Having dinned at the Inn several years ago, prior to it's sale, we always found the service, the food, and the ambiance outstanding. We wondered if the Inn would be as good as we remembered. It was better! The menu was interesting and concise. From the appetizer to the main course (Duck Breasts) the presentation, preparation and taste was outstanding. Dessert was passed on since we had no room left after the main meal. We will sample dessert on our next visit. The wine list was massive and we selected an older red from Southern France. It was outstanding. It was a night out to remember.

Best Choice for Thanksgiving
Eating at Friends Lake Inn has been my family's tradition for many years now, and I hope it continues for a very, very long time.It's a highlight of the year and I can't think of a nicer way to spend the holiday.The setting is beautiful and the service is warm and accommodating.The menu choices are terrific and the food is always top-notch. We opt for the prix-fixe with bananas foster to round off the meal at the end. The pumpkin bisque is a huge treat too. Last year's main course appealed to me a little more because it was more pungent, unusual and eclectic (the cranberry sauce side was so unbelievably good that I remember it a year later!), but my family preferred the more traditional offering this year. Either way,we love it every time.
