“Nice scenery, bad restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

I was certainly impressed sitting on the deck and looking out the beautiful scenery of Lake George. That's where the enjoyment ended. The service was atrocious. The staff were not helping each other. We waited at least 45 minutes from the time our appetizer came until the time our dinner came. Our waitress was involved with a large group but had no other staff to help run the food to the table. After complaining to the manager, it was the manager himself who brought our dishes to the table which are all lukewarm. Additionally, the food was mediocre and overpriced.

“A shame the food does not match the view.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

A truly beautiful spot to see lake George in all it's glory but the food is overpriced and poor quality. My stake was an excellent cut of meat but the vegetables were stale and badly cooked. The waitress tried her best to keep us happy but for the $95 I paid for a simple meal for two of us, it was very disappointing.

“Great View-Not Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

View from outside is amazing but the food and service were not. 2 of us ordered steak and it was fatty-not what we would expect for the price. I have the scallop special which was delicious. The waitress was not very attentive.

“What a View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

A very friendly place, good food and wine. The view from the bar overlooking Lake George is spectacular. I can't wait to go back.

“Breathless View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

My favorite place to enjoy a few appetizers and a Pina Colada. The view of the lake is priceless.
