Accomodating and satisfying.

This restaurant was one of the few open on New Year's Eve in Lake George, and I'm glad it was! The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, even when the child in our party wanted something different than what she ordered. The food was wholesome and had great flavor.

Our waitress Cassie, greeted us with a great smile, from the beginning we knew she'd be a great server. From there on everything was great, great food, great service and the atmosphere was also great. I recommend this to tourists and locals for a great meal and service.

We chose this restaurant for the good prices and barbecue food. The food was good, but the service left much to be desired. We had a large group, and our waitress looked overwhelmed from the start. We ordered our drinks and food, and the waiting game began. When the first round of food came out, only 4 orders arrived. After... More

Just saw this review. Sorry for the negative experience. This was a group of eleven people. It was a busy night with a limited staff. They sat in our upstairs dining room, which sometimes can be challenging. Their server waited on their every request, running up and down the stairs to facilitate their dining needs. She is experienced and is... More

This family-owned restaurant makes you fall in love before you even order your meal. Everything about the ambiance screams "we got good meat here," and the food didn't disappoint. It's been a while since I had such a good burger; every bite melted in my mouth. The service from our very beautiful server Cassie was courteous and prompt. A very... More

Was looking forward to prime rib, but they ran out. Had chicken fried steak. Okay, not great. Pleasant atmosphere. Average prices.

We enjoyed our dinner which was just nice homestyle food. My husband and I both ordered chicken. I ordered the grilled chicken breast and my husband ordered the grilled half chicken dinner. Both came with two sides which were tasty especially the sweet potato fries! Our waitress brought a basket of sweet cornbread and butter when she brought our drinks... More

I stopped hear by myself on the first weekend of October based on a recommendation from my brother. They were busy and I understand that and they were seating people on the deck which they had heaters set up and that was actually pretty nice. The food was excellent and I will give credit for that, but the service was... More
