Not my first choice but glad I came

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat on our way to Lake Placid. This was actually our third choice but decided to stay. I had read some negative comments about this place but I was pleasantly surprised. We had a very nice waitress and I got fish and chips and my husband got shrimp... read more

My fiancé and I were in lake George during prime season and we got recommended to go to the Lobster pot - and were glad we did. The service was awesome, and the food was even better.

The meal was excellent and even though it was wall to wall with people, the service was excellent. Everytime we get to Lake George, we make a point of eating at this restaurant.

My son and I went during restaurant week. The value was great! If I paid the regular or market price we would have been very unhappy though. Portions are small, the salad was old, the restaurant is nasty inside. It needs to be gutted, painted, and replace that nasty dirty smelly carpet. Other than that, the $20 a meal with... More

I make it a point to eat here at least once during tourist season, which is when the restaurant is open. I find the servers are always friendly and helpful. The food is always good and reasonably priced. I like to sit on the deck, weather permitting, and did just that during the car show. That night, it was extremely... More

The waitress knows this review was coming. Went to this place with eight friends, sat on the deck overlooking the road. Right next to the deck, on the ground was uncut grass and weeds with old tables, trash and junk. We started to get attacked by bugs, not a couple, but a invasion of what looked like flying ants/termites they... More

If you're going to be a seafood restaurant called the lobster pot, the lobster sandwich better be fresh. Instead the lobster sandwich for $17 tasted like it was previously frozen, and now tasteless lobster. The lobster bisque was so crazy salty, that I asked if they could fix it, I tried adding some hot water, and it was ruined. The... More

We stopped here on our first night in Lake George. Given the decor of the place (it's a bit worn out), we were a bit stunned at the prices on the menu. We ordered "The Full Pot" (a $62 seafood sampler with quite a bit to choose from) to split three ways (two adults, one child). There were additional charges... More
