Great hostess--meh food.

We visited the East Cove Restaurant this past Wednesday night. It was a lovely afternoon for a drive up the Northway and finding the restaurant was a piece of cake. We had a Groupon for four that was set to expire the next day and we were joined by our son and his girlfriend (who is a VERY... read more

Ok. My wife and I have been to East Cove every year for the past ten years. The food has always been good, atmosphere fine and drinks refreshing. But this year, after a day of rain, I was looking forward to dinner. My wife loves blue cheese olives but most places in Lake George or Bolton Landing do not have... More

Fourth visit - guest got confused where to meet me - ended up here. Worst filet mignon ever - could not finish it - bland, not juicy, not worth the cost. Salad had so much dressing dumped on it - couldn't eat it - should have asked for on the side. Roll was hard like it was warmed in a... More

The food was fantastic! But better yet, and usually most important, our server was great. Amanda was extremely accommodating to all of our needs! Highly recommend!

Food was great. Prices were great. I had prime rib. Husband had crabmeat stuffed sole. We split a scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer. The seafood was incredibly fresh. We hail from Cape Cod so we know seafood. The prime rib was cooked medium rare, exactly as ordered. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I had the most amazing return trip to The East Cove! Started it off with a refreshing drink(s) at the bar. We sat down as soon as we wanted to without a reservation, even though they were quite busy, as it was Memorial Day Weekend. As an appetizer, I started with steamed clams, that were served in their shell with... More

The food was very good but a bit pricey. We were celebrating a special occasion and really wanted seafood and this was recommended by our hotel. I would definitely make sure to watch what you order if you are on a budget.

Wanted an off the beaten path place that locals frequented because of good food and service. The place was packed and we were excited that it was so popular thinking it would be awesome. First impression was that the staff/hostess was stressed, not particularly friendly and even thought she would turn us away because we had no reservation. She seated... More
