Hands Down teh best in Old Forge!

Never a miss here. Always delicious, always just right, from the small plates to the dinner size entrees. The menu changes seasonally, fresh creative dishes.

This was a nice restaurant and we were lucky it was the off season or we would have never gotten a table. The staff was warm and invting. I ordered the Ricotta Gnudi which was wonderful. The Pan-Roasted Salmon was a winner with my wife and it was done the way she likes her fish, moist and tender.

We have made a point to eat at Five Corners at least once during our yearly vacations since then. Food is fabulous and creative, waitresses are delightful and atmosphere is cozy. Will... More

It's easy to walk right past this gem. It's a treasure! Great service. The menu is small plate/ large plate. Homemade bread. Everything was FRESH and delicious. Without a doubt, the best soup I've ever had. Creamed Cauliflower that was like silk. And I am pretty picky about my soup. With no shame, my husband and I oggled the other... More

We dined at Five Corners Cafe early one evening before the dinner rush this past September. We absolutely enjoyed it. Their specials were tasty and our waitress was phenomenal. Their special was the duck with a side of spaghetti squash and it was one of the best roast duck breasts I've ever had.

We came to the "North Country" area to visit a friend and found out about this spot from the locals who raved about it. Well, we were not steered wrong. The restaurant is very quaint, and the staff very friendly. The menu was varied and had a number of enticing items. The prices were very reasonable, and the quantity of... More
