We were travelling through Lake George with our dog, which limited our food options. We found the Loft online, and thought we'd give it a shot, as we always enjoy a drive-in. The food was, sadly, disappointing. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger, which was clearly just a re-heated frozen burger patty with limp, soggy bacon on top. My husband's chicken... More

Well if you are up for fried everything, served with extra grease, slippery cheese, tons of salt and an assortment of sugary soft drinks to wash it all down this is definitely the place for you. If you are expecting choices that are different than burgers, fries and hot dogs this is not the place to go.

My wife and I come here every year when we are in town for the Balloon Festival. The Loft burger is to die for (2 burgers, bacon, fried onions, sauté onions and cheese on a Kiaser roll)

$3.00 coffee milkshakes, yum. Also can get fun eggplant fries and deepfries mushrooms. Hotdogs are a good deal-though we did get one with moldy chese which sucked everything else was great (we ate here 3 times!)

I've been going here for over twenty years and it's never changed and I hope it never does. The owner(s) are the friendliest people And the food is awesome. Small menu- nothing fancy, but the char burgers are delicious! Definitely a must stop when you need something quick and filling to eat!
