Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Ambiance offered a nice historical walk down memory lane.
Our first experience at this restaurant. Had heard a lot about it and we were somewhat disappointed. We were at a table for two that was scrunched against the wall. It was difficult to be seated and once seated could not move. Patrons who came in after us that were going to be seated on the opposite side asked to be moved. Wished we had done the same. Food was ok but lacked flavor. My husband had the turkey dinner and said the best part were the fresh string beans! I had the special, shrimp scampi, which lacked any flavor and hardly any sauce on the bucatini pasta. It was rather expensive for what we got. Might give it another try maybe for lunch.
Fabulous historic inn. So pleasurable to explore the authentic tastefully decorated common areas, the really great gift shop & of course the wonderful food. Fussy eaters were really delighted that everything was so well prepared & delicious. Expert service.
Nice quiet country inn dining room which feels cozy and welcoming. Staff is friendly and took care of of well. Food was tasty and there was plenty of it. Got just what we hoped for and expected.
Great place to have lunch when visiting the area. The food and service is always excellent!
We always enjoy our meals at the Red Lion Inn. However, because it is so expensive we only visit there once a year during the fall foliage.
Excellent food with fresh flavors transports you back in time to a bygone era.
We dined in the pub, first of all we made reservations through OpenTable thinking we would have a table reserved, WRONG. The sign as we entered read "Please Seat Yourself!" Not good considering we were with two older seniors who I knew could not stand/wait. Anyway, we got lucky with a table opening soon after. Our server was OK, until after 20 minutes or so after taking our order she comes back and says they lost our order, now what did you want again!! The clam chowder was cool, yet, pleasant tasting! The turkey dinner special was just OK, again, temperature not as warm as it should have been. The Red Lion Inn was a nice stop along the fall foliage trail, can't recommend the Pub however, at least not on Sunday's!
Our waiter Justin was outstanding. We had two children with us and he was so great with them and was in tune with their needs. The food was great and overall we love going there.
Always wanted to dine there following many trips to the area, first time, not disappointed, would return.
End of a week vacation with my sisters.
I have always loved the Red Lion Inn, but I have Celiac Disease. Other years the menu better reflected the fact that not everyone can digest gluten. The only fully gluten free item was the salmon, but I got sick on salmon once and hate it now, so that was not an option. Fortunately, we had a lovely waitress who took the time to help me get a burger with gf bread and coleslaw instead of the infected French fries. It was disappointing to have such limited options, but the Inn is still lovely and I live with the hope that next year they will have a more diverse menu. The prices were very high for such a disappointing meal.
Love the Red Lion Inn restaurant! Food is always good and the Waite staff is very friendly. They were busy with the Leaf Peepers coming to view the autumn colors. Their soups are delicious and salads are big.
We chose The Red Lion for a special birthday/ anniversary dinner so we were hoping to have a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing—the Salmon was so dry I asked for lemon wedges to moisten it up and provide some taste. The rice pilaf that came with it was, seriously, out of the box bland. My husband’s turkey dinner was more like diner food than a fine, expensive restaurant.
Fine restaurant does not run out of their Special Meal so early in the evening (6:30) also my swordfish was over done.
Unfortunately the service was poor. Having to request a bread basket and drink refills are not hallmarks of quality service. The beef filet ($42) arrived barely warm.
I love that they preserve the old charm of New England and felt like the service and food was 21 century. But the building definitely makes you feel you stepped back 100 years or more. Love love love it there.
We drew a good table near a window and a good server, who was attentive without hovering. We ate the salmon and trout dishes, respectively, which were well prepared and very tasty. The deserts were wonderful. We asked for cider as a desert wine. They were out, but the server managed to find enough to give us a taste, which we very much appreciated. The restaurant was not crowded, and we were able to linger over our food and conversation.
Great location, service and food. A must visit when going to the the Adirondacks.
Wonderful place. It is very relaxing and a beautiful atmosphere. Food was great an the service was wonderful.
Everything was good but we had a drink before dinner at the upstairs bar. The stool I was on was awful
We were warmly greeted and wished happy anniversary by both the reception and our server. The setting is lovely and as you would expect from an old New England Inn. The food was delicious!
A gift for my new daughter in law
We were there on a Sunday night and the food was, so to speak, a little tired, at the end of the summer season, gearing up for foliage season; few clams and potatoes in the otherwise delicious clam chowder, a yummy wild mushroom risotto that was perhaps a little heavy, turkey that looked processed (though my dining partner said it was delicious comfort food). But it's always a good experience to be in, and eat at, the Red Lion Inn. Good wines, great cocktails, fine service, and the acme of traditional country inn atmosphere.
Red Lion is an interesting old hotel but the dining room was not a highlight of our stay. Service for dinner was good and well paced (Nathan) but the ambiance was flat (nearly empty) and the food average at best. Poor value for Monday
Great place! Always enjoy spending time there. A little colonial oasis!
This is a beautiful inn, very historic, filled with lovely bric—brac and antiques. Everyone should dine there once. It is, however, ridiculously overpriced ($100 for lunch for two; no drinks.) The food, at lunch at least, is unexciting; portion size is small to moderate. You can do better at home, if you are even a medium-accomplished cook. Our waiter was friendly and helpful at first, but then he faded from sight, and seemed somehow confused and disengaged. It was an enjoyable enough experience, but I doubt we will be doing it again.
we had a very nice time--the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the setting is wonderful.
The Red Lion knows how to combine elegance with comfort. I love to look at the teapot collections and the people who seem to be there for many, assorted reasons. The service is good but not intrusive. The Red Lion is a consistent pleasure in a world where that is hard to find.
Food was excellent, and our server, Adam, was particularly attentive.
We look forward to our next visit.
Reservations for 4 people at 6:00. Sat down at 6:15 after paying bill and spending over $400, at 8:00 was requested to leave because the next reservation had arrived ! There were several open tables around us that held 4 people that were empty. Very disappointed ..
Wonderful experience. Great waiter. Beautiful food presentation. Fresh food ingredients! Taste was exquisite. Will be back!
Both of us had the roast turkey dinner. It arrived quickly, hot and plenty of everything. Also had the apple pie with ice cream for dessert. Large portion and worth every penny.
Every thing was wonderful. Then Open Table sent me an email about my being a no show. It got straightened out.
Medicore food and absolutely shocking service
Food was good but portions were very small and meals are overpriced. I think you are paying for the historic ambiance and landmark status.
The Red Lion Inn, where I've dined numerous times in the past 30 years, is always dependable and and an enjoyable experience, in many ways because of the unique ambiance. I wouldn't call it inspired food, or gourmet, but traditional standards well pesented. The New England Clam Chowder is noteworthy. This was a particularly pleasant experience on a perfect fall day because we were seated in the charming courtyard.
Expensive and our waiter needed to learn the menu and his beer inventory. Otherwise we love the Red Lion Inn. We can’t wait till the fall menu comes out with the infamous turkey sandwich & stuffing.
