Came here on a recommendation from the innkeepers of the LampLight inn and was not disappointed. I ordered the lobster mac and cheese and it was very good. Was very quiet there and the waitress was very attentive to our table. Chef came over and greeted us....then spoke to our table for a few minutes. Great spot to eat and... More

If you are looking for a beautiful setting for a very good lunch or dinner this is the place. Situated on the bank of the upper Hudson river the outdoor seating gives a superb view. The lunch menu has an Adirondack flair with a gourmet touch. The lunch selection is excellent and the food is very good. The dinner menu... More

We were recommended to go here from staff at The Lamplight Inn. We elected to sit outside, because it was warm and in the afternoon. The view while seated was amazing. We couldn't believe it was the Hudson River!. The food was delicious, and the homemade pumpkin cheesecake was unbelievable! Will return when in the area.

Anyone who travels to Lake Luzerne says this place is a must do! Now we know why. A great restaurant, professional wait staff, excellent choices for dinner. The Lobster Mac n cheese is a must. (it's worth the calories!)

We happened on this place on our way to The Friendship Inn near Lake George. It was a perfect place for lunch. The view of the Hudson River from the patio was a great compliment to a very good lunch. Service was fast and friendly. It appears as if the place is so popular that reservations are recommended if you... More

Definitely worth eating here. Too bad they don't let you use their wi-fi. The risotto was great. Good wine selection.

We actually ate here twice. The food was excellent, the staff was great and the chef cared enough to check on your meal! We ate outside and the view of the Hudson with Mountains was beautiful. Be sure to go for the evening's special. Excellent dining experience.

Being from Long Island-NY, we take every opportunity to eat at the UpRiver Cafe whenever we're in the area throughout the summer. Among the many great meals we've had there, our favorites are the Ahi Tuna and Lobster Roll. Everyone is friendly, the service is great, it's very charming and clean, daylight views of the river are beautiful and relaxing,... More

We were told to make reservation to sit on deck overlooking rapids, which we were glad we did! I had shrimp and scallop risotto, my husband had seared scallop special of the night. Both were fantastic! We also had gumbo, crab cakes as appetizers, great. Had dessert which we normally don't. My husband said the apple pie was best he... More
