“Come for the View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My husband and I have been coming here to eat 1-2 times ever summer for about 5 years. It's an old stone building with two outdoor decks overlooking a bay on Lake George. An absolutely beautiful view. The food, however, is pretty marginal. Go with the basics: sit outside on the deck, have a drink, order a hamburger or a sandwich. Anything else has usually been a disappointment.

“Unique but unpredictable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

For a scenic view of Lake George, it's hard to beat this place. Unfortunately, the food and service are both very easy to top.

If you stop in by boat, be prepared to walk across rotting dock timbers and up a rickety staircase to get to the restaurant. It looks as if there have been no renovations or basic maintenance on this place in many years.

Once up top, you'll have your choice of two decks overlooking Basin Bay. An amazing view!

The food ranges from outstanding to horrible, depending on the day (chef?). The service is similar - the wait staff tries hard but most are seasonal employees who have not worked there before . . .and it shows.

The place is up for auction (03/15/12), so here's hoping that someone fixes up this once premier destination!

“AWSOME !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

It is a great restaurant with alot of atmosphere. It is very clean and the food is absolutely excellent! The bar in the restaurant is awsome, the fireplace is beautiful and to eat outdoors if you choose to do so on the lake it is great. Besides delicious food, good drinks you have a beautiful view to go with it, friendly and good service. What more could you ask for!

“Great Food and Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Went with friends and all our meals were great! Ahi tuna with pineapple salsa is awesome and was cooked perfectly. Friends had catfish and also linguine with clams and also ribs. The catfish and clams were great and the portions generous. Ribs were good - but average. Didn't like that side dishes were priced separately. Great views!! Interesting old stone building and bar area. But, furnishings and fixtures look like they are in need of replacement. Staff are friendly and attentive. There were obviously many long time returning customers. We will definitely return!

“Great lakeside dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Had a good meal with great drinks right on Lake George. The crab and shrimp stuffed clams were fantastic. As was my dirty martini. View is awesome.
