We stopped in here for dinner after a long day of site seeing. When we came in they were a bits low but about 10 minutes later they were busy. The waitress was friendly and answered all our questions about the photos on the wall. The photo of the townspeople on the street celebrating the end of the war was... More

Pitkins has been a corner stone at Schroon Lake probably for over 65 years. It most likely hasn`t changed over that time either. This place has comfort food at its core. They smoke their own ribs and the bbq chicken is always a favorite. Burgers, some fish and other traditional dishes are sure to please. It’s not fancy but everyone... More

We made a day trip to the area so we could visit Schroon Lake (great public beach area). We stopped into Pitkins for a late lunch and we weren't disappointed. My husband got the open face turkey sandwich and I ordered the pulled pork. Both were exactly what you would want when you order these items. Great flavor and very... More

My wife and I usually go to have dinner at Pitkins when we stay at Schroon Lake during the summer, when it tends to be packed. They provide good good at reasonable prices and the service is always great. I had the pecan-entrusted trout which I liked, but the sides of baked potato and peas were okay. My wife had... More

Great service, OK food. Most likely homemade, but not fantastic. Nice homemade pie for dessert. The place is non-licensed.

We stopped in looking for a casual diner atmosphere and this seemed the place. It looked like they had a varied menu and we said Let's! One staff person seated us, another staff took our drink order, another staff took our dinner order, another staff brought our food and another staff delivered and took the check for payment. I think... More

Pitkins serves great food, so much in fact that you will usually find it quite busy with a line out front on some days. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. What I really like about this place is that it serves you correct portion sizes of food. You don't get overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the amount served, its just right.... More

The staff was friendly. They sausage gravy and biscuit was interesting and tasty. My date got the wrong cheese in her omelet. The whole experience wasnt anything spectacular. The menu needs updating and reminds me of a truck stop diner.
