It was Tuesday, in September, in Old Forge and we were having a difficult time finding a place to eat dinner. We tried three places and all were closed. The restaurant gods were with us as we went to Randy's...what a great place for dinner. The food was great, the portions generous, the service was outstanding considering there was only... More

Cute and clean little restaurant. Opens at 5 pm. Prices are very reasonable. We had the fried chicken dinner which included soup or salad , warm bread, choice of potato, and the best fried chicken all for $8.99. You can add vegetable to your meal if you want it at no extra charge.

A small woodsia place. The husband cooks & the wife serves. Everything is fresh made. A lot of things to choose from. The deep fried pickles are delish! Thin coating. Chicken dishes are plentiful. There are also sandwiches &burgers. Many types of potatoes. Sweet whole & fried, potato wedges, regular fries. Friday is fish fry. One at $5.99 & the... More

We are just ending our week long stay in the Old Forge area, and this was by far the best food I had all week. I had the fried haddock and it was possibly the best I've ever had. Nothing special about it seasoning wise, it's just that it was battered and cooked perfectly. Very light and flaky. No heavy... More

This was our first visit and we were very pleased! We got the fried chicken (so juicy), the special of the night- sausage riggies (deliscious!!) And the meatloaf (fabulous) you get great bread and generous salads with your meals. The prices were very fair and it feels like home. The owners cook and wait on you. Its like you are... More

We tried Randy's in the off season. Tina provided fast, friendly, attentive service. Clam chowder was delicious with large chunks of fresh veggies. Generously portioned garden salad, very fresh. Fried chicken was juicy...fried saltwater clams were flavorful.... Both were a tad overdone, though. Overall, good food at a great price!

This wasn’t our first time eating here, but it will be the last time we eat here. We just didn’t feel welcomed from the minute we walked in the door. Sometimes you get that personable feeling when you come into family owned places, but not this time. I had to ask for a refill on a drink that I waited... More

We went up to Old Forge/Inlet area on Saturday to view the foliage. Had seen Randy's e online and on Trip advisor so planned to go. We pulled in twice and sign said closed. The second time it was almost 5:00. We went to the back but not a car in the place except for one person in front sitting... More
