Had a late Sunday night date here. Super quiet as we got there an hour before closing. Ambience was amazing. Sure the view is great during daylight. Food was the best we’ve had in lake George. Our server Mandy was also great, super friendly, great advice on local recs and timely service. Would definitely go back.

The view is what it is about. Eating looking at beautiful Lake George in New York’s
Adirondack Mountains cannot be beat. The food was excellent and prices reasonably.
It was great choice for a quiet dinner with friends. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.

Beautiful view of the lake from the spacious dining room. Wait staff were friendly and prompt, but the portions were small and the food was obviously not freshly prepared.

Don’t know where to start. Open table rated this place 4 stars! It’s awful run down and needs an overhaul it’s a Saturday night at 730pm this place was dead even the bar was empty. We were going to walk out but the man welcoming us was very nice and waitress was very nice. Apps were terrible peach salad with hardly any peaches and raw shrimp. Tortilla soup was all flour couldn’t eat. Asian app we hard and greasy. Veal malenes was awful. Scallops smelled fishy when came out and we under cooked. Burger was very good , steak was cooked good but can tell it was frozen before cooked. The food here was terrible. Drinks were ok Pinot wine was good. Anyway 230$ later we were still hungry. We should have went to Applebee’s. Don’t believe the photos or ratings here! Sorry to write this because I do respect Resturant people they work hard. But this was misleading.

We found this restaurant while on a trip to Lake George. Upon arriving we were seated at a table overlooking the lake. We each chose their Thursday night Pint and Pound special. Our steaks were cooked just as we asked and everything was excellent. For dessert we had peach cobbler which was served with whipped cream and a large scoop of ice cream … also very good. Their menu prices were very reasonable and service was outstanding. Thanks Stephanie! We will definitely stop by again when visiting the area.

My wife and I came here for the first time, and we really enjoyed it. The food was delicious and our waitress was outstanding. The seat we had overlooking the bay was beautiful. We will definitely come back here if we're in the area.

Kinda disappointed....meatballs were dry...kids chicken fingers were also dry...the plus side is they are very accommodating with substituting....scallops over the top salty but the pork cutlet was very good as was the risotto.

Empanadas we’re good
Salad ng, cucumbers were frozen then used in salad.
Pork Milanese was good but risotto terrible.
Meat loaf was not your grandma’s and mashed potatoes horrible.
Ambiance - none place was like a camp cold with no atmosphere.
Would not go back.
Service slow…

We were very impressed. We had the Thursday steak special. The steak was tender and cooked the way we like, medium rare. The presentation was great and our server, Taylor, was very attentive and helpful. We thought the drink prices were very reasonable and they make a very good Old Fashion. We will definitely be returning.
And the view was spectacular.

Waiter was nice. We ordered the soup de jour Turkey with Bacon that was sub-par. My son ordered chicken tenders and they came back uncooked. The rest of the food was 2.5 out of 5. I would recommend to make sure all food is cooked properly.

First visit, all good. Casual, and comfortable, with a large window that faces Lake George. Not too busy. Service was prompt and efficient. Food (grilled salmon) was well prepared, and a good value. Worth a try!
