not great, other choices nearby

Food choices were not the greatest and seating was limited, we were in a group of 14 and swished together but the biggest complaint is the bathroom was horrible. Service was good

Beautiful view of the lake. Great location but TERRIBLE service. We asked for water refills and ketchup- and never got either until we asked again at the end. The food was okay; wings were good, but the specialty sweet potato waffle fries had no seasoning. One of the water glasses came out with something floating on top, but we didn't... More

It may come as a shock to these waitresses but you're actually there to work and wait on the customers. Our was slow, unfriendly and unattentive. With any bar type place, there's never an expectation of great food and that didn't disappoint either. I ordered the chicken wrap special and it was OK. It came with chips, probably about 1/4...

We returned this spot where my friends dined on a prior visit; and actually and actually had the same server who waited on them. They had a decent menu with plenty of choices. The service was very good as were the meals for everyone on our team. Will return here when visiting Lake George in the future.

Waited 30 minutes for an appetizer of sweet potato waffle fries and the menu didn't have many options for vegetarians other than salad and pasta (same stuff as everywhere else).

Stale, overly salted, poor and expensive food. Service was awful. View was lovely; too bad that the food, service, and atmosphere were so poor.

Ate here on vacation with family of 4. Lobster ravioli and Parmesan sea bass were poor-average at best. Fish was undercooked and topping overpowered the dish Ravioli was chewy and stale tasting. Bill was 90 dollars with two drinks and felt overcharged on based on the quality. Will not be coming back.

Had dinner here over the weekend, started with ceasar salad which was served in a big bowl and not too much dressing which was good, we had shrimp scampi over pasta (small portion) and that was perfect. If you are not a huge eater chose the smaller and cheaper versions of the food you will not be disappointed. The pina... More
