“Fast becoming our 'go to' choice for casual dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Garrison has been beautifully renovated--clean, Adirondack look and very friendly environment. We had wings (superbly done), salad and hamburgs--everything was terrific. Our waitress was sweet, though clearly new to her job and she tried really hard. The manager came over to introduce himself and thank us for our business--he was very, very friendly and welcoming, a very, very nice touch. One of the best choices in Lake George! Recommend it with enthusiasm.

“Re opened and remodeled”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Sat at the bar for lunch and our bartender was very friendly. Ordered a BLT with fries and while the sandwich was very good the fries were very soggy. If you order fries ask for extra crispy and they may be cooked better then what I got. Great selection of beer on tap as well as 2 ciders. Will go again, just will not have fries

“AWESOME!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

NEW.....OPEN....and AMAZINGLY renovated...delicious food...GREAT place to hang out or enjoy lunch and dinner! Exceptional bar manager and friendly staff. Most definitely the best bar/restaurant in the Lake George area! Only been open for one week and can't wait to go back. Everyone needs to try it out.

“They are Back and Better than Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

After being closed and sold the Garrison reopened Mothers Day. A busy tough day for a restaurant to have a grand opening but they pulled it off. This used to be the great local hang out in Lake George for decades. It was sad to see in the past years it was slowly run into the ground and then closed. It was sold and now has been totally renovated into a beautiful casual restaurant, great bar with very reasonable prices. I have been there twice in the past week, both times the manager came over and introduced himself. Very impressed with the renovations, service, food and prices. The patio looks great and a nice menu with a lot of twists. So glad The Garrison is back and better than ever!

“Much Room For Improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Stood at the entrance for about 10 minutes before we sat ourselves at a table. Never saw a hostess. Waited 15 minutes before we were able to flag down a waitress. It was her first night on job and she was very pleasant but we waited forever for the food which arrived in multiple stages. Some of us were done with our meals before others had their entrees. The food was mediocre pub grub at best. This is just another weak attempt at getting the tourist summer crowd who will eat just about anything.
