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

Ordinary menu - no creativity - a few years ago it was better and a more pleasant staff. Fine for a so-so meal and you are on that side of the lake.

The restaurant itself is rustic and pleasant,a true adirondack feel. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Appitizer of wings was very good. Entrees were very good as well. Only downfall was I ordered... More

Found this place using Groupon and went for dinner after driving up to Lake George. Ordered the baked clams, which we enjoyed though, I would have preferred them to chop the clams up before baking them. I went with the fish with asparagus and liked the fish and the sauce. Thought the asparagus was a little overcooked and would have... More

My manfriend and I didn't quite know what we were going to get when we went to this restaurant on January 2nd, 2015, but what we got was pretty awesome. The small bar was busy, and the dining area was steady, we were seated immediately, I ordered the Holiday Veal and Oscar Crab entrée off the specials menu, and my... More
