    Waiter was inexperienced and needed reminding. Vegan options had been removed from the menu due to seasonal changes which left limited selection. Booth/table was awkward configuration for 3 people.

    Small menu, the focus is on quality not variety. A couple omelets would really round things out. Went with my family and all were happy with their meals. Strong, flavorful coffee was a great start to a delicious breakfast. Seating was very comfortable. Clean, bright restaurant. I'm looking forward to going back!

    Our server was very nice. His name was Kevin and he was very helpful with the menu. I had the last strip steak that was left. It was very good and my partner had the burger. There was also a man playing the guitar and singing. He was very very good. We really enjoyed the music. I thought the wine was very pricey for a very stingy amount. I felt all in all the restaurant was a little bit overpriced.

    Campfire Adirondack Grill + BarResponded on June 14, 2022

    We are so happy to hear about your evening at Campfire! We also love the musician Jeff Balerno, and are glad his music was a positive. We will be sure to pass on your compliments to Kevin as well. The local Donahue's Farm steak is the best, isn't it? Hopefully we will see you again in the future for dinner and your commentary on pricing is absolutely noted. Thank you!

    We both ordered hamburgers medium. Both were undercooked and not hot. One was very rare and had to be sent back. Server handled it well but pretty disappointing.

    Campfire Adirondack Grill + BarResponded on June 14, 2022

    We are incredibly sorry that your meal with us was disappointing. Our food can and should be served to a much higher standard than you received. Thank you for letting us know about your experience and for the compliments to our service.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at the Campfire. We started at the Great Hall for drinks and appetizers. The cocktails were well made and delicious and the cheese plate was very good and plenty for two people to share. We then went down to the Campfire for dinner. It was pretty busy so I was glad we had a reservation. We were seated right away and the waitress came and took our drink orders and told us about the specials shortly after we sat down. I had the steak with chimichurri sauce which was delicious. My husband had the airplane chicken which he really enjoyed. Everything was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

    Presentation was beautiful. My husband could not eat the ahi tuna -chewy. I received two lollipop lamb chops. There may have been a whole ounce of meat between the two. The polenta cake was very bland and the sautéed chard tasted like they dumped a whole shaker of salt on it. Very disappointed.

    Food was really very fresh and tasty .. service was super with a homey twist! The Sauvignon Blanc was to die for. The turkey sandwich with apples and cranberry Mayo is a must! One small thing would be the charcuterie- it’s tasty but if you add the $6.00 meats make sure you get more than 3 small pieces of prosciutto Otherwise really really really highly recommend this place.. and the view - oh my goodness!

    The appetizers we chose were pretty mediocre. My entree was good and my husband didn’t care for his. Dessert was good as well as our cocktails. Service was spotty even though there were few people in the restaurant. If they amp things up a bit it would make a difference.

    Very busy last evening with many guests all going to same event upstairs. Our order took almost 45 minutes, so we had to eat quickly. Not the waiter's fault as he did a good job trying to keep us with drinks & bread. Will go back again.

    We had a nice meal. Nice atmosphere and solidly good service. We were celebrating a birthday. We mentioned it twice in our reservation but the restaurant did nothing, not even a Happy Birthday when we arrived. I wonder why Open Table collects the information when the restaurant can’t be bothered to do anything with it.

    We had a great Valentines dinner at Camp Fire. Great table. Good drinks and food. Had a little misstep with drink service but ok. The best part was the magician who did card tricks at our table. Very amusing. New menu and new chef. Give it a try

    I ordered a burger medium. It was charred on the outside and gray and dry in the interior. My husband ordered a butternut squash dish that looked like it was made the day before and reheated. There is a dessert called a Mudslide on the menu. It is supposed to be vanilla ice cream with warm ganache, marshmallow and whipped cream. There was no marshmallow, and the ganache was a pitcher of hot chocolate (the beverage, not the sundae topping). Definitely not ganache. A 1/2 tablespoon of whipped cream was served on the side in one of those silver metal cups used in diners for ketchup and other condiments. I’d understand (maybe) if the restaurant was busy, but there were only 5-6 diners, including us. Truly embarrassed for this restaurant. Do better.

    Our waitress - Kristie was brand new and her service was not the best. She said that she was in the food service industry for 20 years, must have been “behind the scenes’ . Service was poor and she had an excuse for everything. At the end - we asked for our check and she provided no pen to sign the check. Overall - it was good meal but having Kristie as our waitress dampened our total experience to offer a fair assessment.
