    This place was awesome. I went on a Sunday evening and it was very quiet, only a few diners. The view of the lake from the restaurant is gorgeous, the sun was setting while I ate and it was just a lovely experience. The service was above and beyond, everyone was super sweet, considerate, and attentive. The food was fantastic — their spinach artichoke dip is one of the best I’ve ever had. I was even surprised by how generous they were with my glass of wine. I was slightly less impressed with the bacon-wrapped grilled meatloaf I had, but it was still good. All in all just a great time at this place. Will definitely go again!

    Nice dinner and good service. We enjoyed the pork belly tomato soup, salads, the roast pork and the asian noodles with duck. The pumpkin creme brulee desert was delicious.

    The View at Dunham Bay was one of our best dining experiences ever! We were seated at a table next to the large window with a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding trees. Mandy was our friendly and attentive server who knew how to give excellent customer service. For our dinners we ordered Pork Tenderloin with ginger glaze and Sea Scallops with fennel + risotto. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious but my favorite was the Scallop entree (to die for!) We ended our meal with the berry crumble + ice cream. Not a drop left. Overall, we can't wait to come back again. The entire experience was superb and their prices are very reasonable. A special thanks to the office manager, Ashley, for going above and beyond to make sure we got a window table!

    The food is uneatable and tasted like it came out of a microwave. Absolutely not worth the money, spent $150 and regret every penny. So sad, because ambience and the server were absolutely amazing. Caring person and thoughtful about children etc. Hope she finds a better place to work.

    The view (literally) … that’s about all you will get here. Usually I don’t write reviews but had to share our experience. Last minute decision - Came with a party of 11 people- there was only one other table of people in the entire restaurant on a Saturday night. That should have told us from the beginning. Food was awful. Ordered fried wontons as one our appetizers. Then ordered the Asian noodle bowl as entree. It was supposed to be paired with fried wontons amongst other items. Never came with the fried wontons and when we asked the waitress she told us that the kitchen ran out of fried wontons after our appetizer. Still got charged for our appetizer when we those should have been in our main dishes. Drinks were never replenished until the very end of our meal. I could understand if the place was busy but the entire time we were there - again there was only one other table of 2 people in the place. Horrible experience- will definitely not be back. Beware!

    We were celebrating our anniversary and requested a table at the window and they had it all set up for us. We were very happy with that. Our waitress Kennedy was super friendly and took very good care of us. Oh and by the way, great idea on the locals getting a discount. We will definitely be back!!

    Unfortunately our experience wasn’t the greatest. We were seated in a makeshift dining area in the hallway, right where you enter the restaurant. Waitresses had to squeeze around our table to get through to the tables behind us. The food was over salted and left a lot to be desired. I really hope that this was due to an off night and not a regular occurrence.

    If we asked any questions, the waitress said she was not familiar with the menu. Entree was to include salad, we were charged for salads. Ordered a glass of Fetzer wine, it did not taste the best, on the check it said it was was Barefoot. She should have asked if the substitution was alright. It would not have been.

    We were in the area so we made reservation/ showed up 45 minutes early for a drink, we were the only people there/ good for us as there are only THREE tables with a view!! Waitress though pleasant could not answer anything about menu, wine by the glass must of been left over bottles from last year- undrinkabke food was good though, very varied menu including duck- the bread rolls fantastic, menu was reasonably priced considering it’s on the lake. Locals get 20% off on sundays!!!

    The food was really bad. I have to say I don't know why I was going with that view and area BUT I got the stuffed bacon wrapped chicken and I literally have never had chicken that I couldn't bite through. It was like chewing a leather belt. My daughter got the same thing and we couldn't eat it. The quiche was really dry and the we sat with Empty drinks forever and it was just not a nice experience at all.

    Food was delicious and so was the ambiance looking at the bay (we sat by window). Although the waitress was very sweet the service was slow within first hour we sat down. Some tables that sat before us received their meal first. We had to chase down our drinks and wish we had someone check in to see if we needed anything more frequently. Maybe they were understaffed.

    There were three of us in our party. For the brunch, you can select two of the entrées and then you get a number of included side dishes. There was plenty of food with some to take home. The sweet potatoes were a favorite for everyone. Great sausage. We had the pepperoni ziti with ricotta cheese and the quiche for our entrées and both were very good. The view of Lake George is wonderful. We saw people in their huts ice fishing. They were very busy including a large party in a private room but we were not in a hurry. The wait staff were very friendly.

    We tried The View because our normal restaurants were booked. Worst food I’ve had in years. Everything was overly salty. We were a table of 4 sitting with empty water glasses and wine glasses, yet no one offered us more water. I have spent 38 years in Lake George and this is one of the 5 worst restaurants I can remember. Will never go back.

    We had the Valentine's Day special for 2. At other restaurants this usually means scaled down portions. But not here. Each of the four courses was substantial, well prepared and well seasoned. Our server, Mandy, was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had very nice conversations with her over each course.
