If you want to eat with a view but don't care what you eat.

After deliberating the benefits of what would probably be lesser food on the lake side of the street compared to non-scenic side, we decided to accept the likelihood that the food would not be worthy of the view and came here. Both indoor and outdoor seating available. Young waitresses, one happy... read more

Before we could be served we were told by a waitress that wrong would nor be able to order because there was no waitress on duty for another 20 minutes...but there was a table of 5 that was already eating and another table that was already being served. I will never go back and I will not recommend this restaurant... More

Before eating here - have a look at the state of the toilets, how clean the cutlery is, consider the 18% service charge for tables of six and more. It was expensive, the food was bland and within one hour I was being violently ill and stuck in the washroom all night long. Go anywhere but here - it was... More

We stopped at lunch time with our dogs in tow. Christie's welcomed us on the deck. We tried two of the panini sandwiches, the turkey & brie and the honey ham. Both were delicious as well as satisfying. Lovely fall view of the lake and foliage only added to the day.

Nice location down by the water and docks, and the server was attentive. We were there just for a burger which overcooked and dry.

It was such a beautiful, romantic setting on the type of night on the Lake George shore that the chamber-of-commerce dreams about! Now, we've been to Lake George multiple times over the years---all of those previous visits we have stayed either north or south of the village. This time we opted to stay in the village so that we wouldn't... More

Local beer was very good, but had lunch on the bottom part of the restaurant and I didn't think we got our moneys worth.

Terrible overall. Overpriced. Fish n chips were frozen. Lobster raviolis frozen and gross. Dirt in beer line left sediment on bottom of draft beers. Women's bathroom also disgusting. Eat elsewhere.

We all sampled a different lunch and it was very good. I had the shrimp wrap with Onion Rings, very tasty

A fairly priced restaurant with great lake views. At first we went to the second level for a table and we were told we needed to wait 15-20 minutes as they were setting up for a party of 16. We then went to the floor level and we were seated right away. We were a party of 6 adults and... More
