Great View

Although the staff was very friendly and accommodating, the food left a lot to be desired. The sandwich my husband ordered was so loaded with mustard it was hard to eat and the salad I ordered, although fresh, came with salad dressing in a open yourself pouch. This place is OK for a cocktail and... read more

Stopped here on a nice fall afternoon for a drink and a appetizer and of course a beautiful view of the lake. Beer was cold, view was great food SUCKED!! I ordered mussels. The description sounded nice but when they arrived I was very disappointed. They were thrown on a plate with some melted butter is a plastic cup. Who... More

The food is average, served quickly and not too expensive. The portions are not big, and the bagged chips are not good.

They gave us a table. They never wiped it clean. Ordered apps and dinner. All came to the table at the same time. Food was terrible. It's been a long time since I've been to a dirty place like this. Bathroom was disgusting. On our way out. They told a family that they where full and couldn't seat them! There... More

My family of 4, with kids ages 10 & 4 just had a very nice dinner. I thought the prices were reasonable, considering it's obviously geared to tourists. Our bill was just under $100, with 2 appetizers and my 10 year old ordering an adult meal. We sat outside despite the rainy day under a covered patio, with a perfect... More

I had tuna and it was cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious. View was excellent. Kids meals were overpriced.... A tiny pizza without drink or side was $10. Would return!

Just a terrible meal sometimes eating out you may have a bad app or entree but at our table not one person had anything you would consider eatable And the seafood tower was a joke. Would have rather had a can of tuna.

The food is all fried and greasy even in the 2nd floor where the menue is supposed to be more "upscale". The fish came uncooked in the middle. No prices on drinks menu. The only good is the view. Will not go back.

Service was extremely fast at dinner time on a Saturday night. We ate upstairs and got two fish appetizers and two fish entrees. Everything we had was delicious, we would definitely go back to eat. Prices are high but for a lakeside restaurant in a tourist area, what else can you expect?

They can literally charge you an arm and a leg for crappy food and get away with it because of the view. Perfect example of Lake George needing a redo on the culinary end. It took 30 minutes to get a terrible burger and frozen fries, the great Finger Lakes chardonnay they have on the list did rescue it slightly,... More
