Stopped by Lakeside Farms today... Found it to be very quaint. Cute little country store. Had wonderful desserts and baked goods. Had a meatloaf sandwich for lunch that was pretty good! The staff was very friendly and helpful ...will definitely go again!

I drive by this place every day on my way to work and why I never stopped in I guess I'll never understand. I did this morning for the first time and I was blown away. I guess since the parking lot is always packed I shouldn't have been surprised. They have a retail store in the front with fresh... More

Walked in tonight, after walking from my car in a pouring rain. There were several people in the place, and 2-3 employees behind the counter. I said, "how are you... More

I always look forward to April when Lakeside Farms reopens for the season. The variety and quality of the food served is outstanding. I am especially fond of the "Lakesider" sandwich. Lakeside is also a great place to shop for fresh produce, as well as fresh baked goods, and I have found the eggs to be less expensive than at... More

I don't think you should call your establishment a 'restaurant' if you serve food over a counter on trays with paper plates and plastic flatware! That being said, the food was good. Not good enough to make a return trip of 12 miles though. For the same $24 dollars we spent, my wife, 3 yr old daughter and I could... More

I had the misfortune to order lunch from this establishment along with some of my co-workers. I ordered a hot dog with meat sauce onions and mustard, which I suspected they could not mess up. Lo and behold my order arrived properly labeled on the bag, inside I found.... a lonely hot dog which had escaped it's bun, cringing in... More

We drove out to Ballston Spa on the recommendation of a friend. We arrived at the Lakeside Farm restaurant/store and were just amazed. The place is awesome. We purchased the chicken salad sandwich which was so very good, there had dried cranberries in the mix. We also purchased an apple fritter, this is to die for. The apple cider donuts... More
