The creative and delicious food, service, kindness to children, and coziness were wonderful. Prices were also reasonable, and we could sit outside.

Wow, first time here and it was excellent. Had pork with bourbon sauce, and it was exquisite. In fact everyone's meal was great. Friends who have a camp in the area said it was their favorite place so we tried it. Would go back again in a heartbeat. It is small though so make reservations so you won't be disappointed.

This wonderful place was recommended to us and we could not have been more surprised, and thrilled with our experience. The food was, to say the least, simply wonderful! We have now found a new place which we plan to visit time and time again!

Old Forge is fortunate to have many good restaurants but 5 corners is a very special place. Everything on the menu is outstanding, from seafood to steaks to whatever else your heart desires. The wait staff is very attentive and the chef is extremely talented. Reservations are almost always needed so plan ahead. You will not be disappointed!

I was very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. There aren't many choices in Old Forge and I wasn't expecting much. But the great Tripadvisor reviews convinced me to try Five Corners. Our meal was excellent. Creative dishes, local ingredients, decent wine list and very good service make Five Corners stand out. You won't be disappointed.

Near-perfect place!!! All they need is an espresso machine! Food and service are A+. The salmon and the filet mignon are top of the line. We visited on our first night at Old Forge and had to repeat on the second. Nice wine and beer list.

This restaurant is our "go to" place during summers in the Adirondacks. We've tried just about everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. We had guests from NYC who agreed their meals would complete with the best restaurants in the city. Kathy and Paul (husband and wife/owners) are always accommodating and Paul's daily specials are always creative,... More

Five Corners Cafe provides a wonderful dining experience. The food is exceptional, fresh, inventive, and most delicious. The service is professional, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is unique, it is at the same time trendy and chic while capturing that small-town, Adirondack feel. It feels like the chef-owner and his wife (who runs the front-of-house) love what they do. The... More

This is the second time we've been to this restaurant and I've had to say it was one of the best meals ever! My husband and I split an order of Grilled shrimp which were presented on a skewer with a divine cocktail sauce. I ordered crab cakes - they were quite wonderful - lots of crab and not over-seasoned... More

As first time visitors to Old Forge we came across Five Corners while looking for a place to eat an early dinner. What a find! Even though we did not have reservations, they were able to squeeze us in; and were we in for a treat. Every one of our dishes was fresh, inventively prepared and cooked to perfection. From... More
