The food was amazing, but the experience was ruined by a large group who were seated at several tables and were being extremely loud. They were getting up and standing talking to people in their group who were seated at other tables. The waiter apologized for the noise but said management wouldn't do anything. It was so unpleasant that we didn't even stay for desert. We asked to speak to the Manager, and while he did apologize, he basically said he couldn't do anything. It was one of the worst dining experiences we've had and it was extremely expensive.

Dined there before, this year not so good. Very loud and food not up to the price, had the veal chop $85.00 and so not worth it . We’ll never dine there again and we definitely won’t recommend it

Friendly knowledgeable staff, nice setting in a quaint downtown. Full bar with good beer menu and a nice cocktail list. We sat on the porch and it was really nice. Chilean sea bass over risotto was cooked nicely and tasted good. Poppy crusted seared tuna tasted really good and was served over a really delicious “Thai” rice but the fish was sliced awkwardly which took away from the dish. Stay for dessert instead of going to Ben and Jerry’s. Really enjoyable overall.

We were waited on immediately by the lovely and efficient Julia. Good food, our only complaint stemmed from the loud, poor quality live music. We couldn’t carry on a conversation! We will return when the music leaves.

Preface: I’ve eaten all over the world, from 1 star street food to 3 Michelin star restaurants, multiple times. I’ll try to keep this review short.

We had two appetizers, the calamari and “crispy” pork belly.
Calamari was great, a little expensive for what you get but still worth it. The pork belly tasted great but it wasn’t crispy… doesn’t make sense why the menu would say crispy but you receive non crispy… anyways wasn’t too big of a deal.
The scallops entree was the only amazing thing of the night. But it was served cold. We saw it sitting on the counter for a few minutes, and the waitress said there’s a heating lamp and don’t worry… there was no heating lamp. Like come on. Lying in front of our faces? Sorry that’s not cool.
The special Thai spiced halibut was subpar. Dry and overcooked, easily done at home much better than paying $50 for a small plate of fish. The Beijing duck was okay, but the cold noodles just ruined the dish. Chinese restaurants can make a better half duck for half the price. We wrapped up the meal nicely with the limoncello marscapone cake, which was actually very very good, but it wasn’t made in house so I’m not crediting the restaurant for the cake. I say the food is 4 stars, but we ordered the wrong items on the menu for sure. Cannot recommend this place…

Probablly the best restaurant in Bolton Landing. There's not much of a choice in that town and Beyond the Sea does a great job. The food was delicious, excellent service and they accept reservations. No standing around waiting for a table as you do in most every other restaurant in town. Prices are not cheap, but they're not insane as they are at Chateau!

The food is the best we have ever had in the lake george region, and even better than many high end NYC restaurants. They are high priced, so be ready, but worth it.

We had a very strange experience last night.
We arrived at 6.30 with our toddler and ordered cocktails and two mains. ( we can't do drawn out dinners these days) The cocktails arrived but weren't v good. One was my fav; cocktail expresso martini, it had none of that lovely coffee froth on top, I wondered if it was expresso at all or just strong coffee. After 30 minutes we started to wonder what was happening, then bread appeared without explanation. At 40 minutes we asked a young lady what was happening and she said she would follow up with our waiter and then nothing happened for 15 more minutes so we decided to abandon paying $40 a dish (or more) and leave. When we told our waiter we were gong to leave he said he understood and gave our cocktails for free but still no explanation. That was our experience.
