Weird/Dirty

Dive Bar in a place that shouldn't have a dive bar. They had a cover band playing and they were decent. Service was fine. It was dirty and the bathrooms were gross and strange. We thought about staying longer, but then weighed our options and agreed that if we stayed any longer we would all need... read more

You go to Lake George for the lake. This place has a great deck to enjoy the outdoors and decent pub food. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food from a traditional cheeseburger to a summer salad.

Limited menu, batter used or the way food was prepared appeared to be darker and thick with minimum taste to delight the tummy. A drinks that were asked to be replaced were also charged. May be the someone had a bad day, maybe someone was stressed thin,I can forgive (and have)., It's twice now we've gone and the business hasn't... More

Oh My goodness. I went to reach under the bar (to hang my purse on a hook). DIdn't find any hooks but lots of cobwebs. Then my husband used the bathroom and more cobwebs. They served us bagged potato chips with our sandwich. Run as far as you can from this place.

Drink prices high, not many choices on the menu, and the absolute worst bathrooms in town. There is not even a toilet in the men's john, downstairs[shouldn't there be a law if you serve food, there should be somewhere to deposit it. Having said all that, I wouldnt miss going there.From the good looking foreign waitress staff,to the music ,to... More

This is a must stop for both locals and tourists alike. Between the view, (the best of the lake, on the lake) the wonderful and friendly staff, and the incredible drinks this is your hometown bar. Can't beat the value.

Best spot to grab a cold one and enjoy the view of the lake. Shannon waited on our table and was an absolute delight!

Went to Christies on the Lake with two friends. Got seated within few mins with menu. Appetizers after 15mins wait and waited for almost an hr for the entrees. At one point, we told the waitress we will just pay the appetizers and our drinks and leave. She kept telling us our foods are at the window. It took her... More

This was our first stop as we arrived in Lake George and we were not disappointed. The patio looks out over the lake and the waitstaff really seemed to work together to keep a nice pace with all the customers. The food was excellent! I had a summer salad with some of the freshest goat cheese I have ever had... More
