Gourmet Place On The River

Great food, great staff, great views, not at all like any of the restaurants in that part of New York State. Very relaxed place but reservations suggested for lunch or dinner.Do not miss this one.

My wife and I had dinner here the other night and we were both pleasantly surprised. I had melon soup to start. It was really good with ginger and rosemary and evenly divided between cantaloupe and honeydew. I then had mushroom ravioli with grilled chicken. The dish was quite good and the cream sauce was perfectly seasoned. My wife had... More

Charming charming eatery on the Hudson River. A friend recommended that we stop by for lunch. We were glad we did. Got a table on the edge of the porch allowing us a wonderful view of the flowing river. Prompt gracious service. Awesome milkshakes. The meals were delicious and wonderfully prepared. Very generous amounts served. Nice selection of libations. Overall... More

Upriver is seasonal restaurant that has everything going for it. The chef owns the cafe. The servers are friendly, efficient and professional. And the food, well, nothing short of exceptional. Located in Lake Luzerne the Upriver Cafe is definitely worth stopping by for something as simple as a dish of ice cream or a full meal overlooking the Hudson.

Eating on the porch is a must! I loved the salad with shaved beet curls. The wait staff is pleasant and prompt.

Excellent restaurant with a unique view on the Hudson River. The chef/ owner is wonderful and very open to satisfy the need of his customers. Perfect place to have dinner before concerts at the Lake Luzerne Music Center

This was the last meal of a nine-day trip to Washington, D.C., in which we ate out every meal. This restaurant in Lake Luzerne served us the best meal of the entire trip! First of all the setting is beautiful, overlooking the Hudson. Secondly, the food is great: we had the duck breast, and the hanger steak—both were cooked perfectly,... More
