“Classic diner atmosphere and look - Delicious food !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We dined here for breakfast on a morning during Americade. Despite the dozens of motorcycles parked in the lot we were able to be seated immediately in a booth with a mini jukebox. We had the standard breakfast:, eggs, pancakes, bacon, juice, coffee etc. The selection was more varied than that, but we only wanted a simple, hot breakfast. The service was quick and everything we ordered was hot and fresh. For a no frills, hot breakfast in a quaint, classic diner setting, this is a great place.
The only negative thing was the restrooms: both the men's and ladies rooms were 1 stallers and there was a line for both the entire time we were dining. They were clean, but still it was only 1 of each and when it's crowded it just isn't enough.

“No Breakfast at the Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I love diners and this diner has an amazing history! The diner came from Paterson NJ so it is authentic! This is definitely where 'the locals' eat because when the three of us walked in they looked like they had never seen people before! It was funny. The service was splendid and friendly. But best of all the pancakes were delicious!

“An Average Diner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had breakfast here and there was nothing wrong with it. Very typical small diner, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the main highway south of the town. Very poor signage but it's a noticeable diner-style building.
So the food and service were acceptable, the prices fair. But the facility, while not dirty, is quite run-down. The place just looks tired (as did the owner).
Recommended, as it appears to be the only diner in Lake George.

“It's back to the sixties for this diner.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Across the board I would rate this place average because it looks so tired and run down in its presentation but the food was quite good and the value was better than that. The coffee was delicious - more like Starbucks blonde not regular Starbucks. I had the Grand Slam special and it was very good. 2 eggs 2 bacon 2 sausage 2 pancakes. They also have the Option for getting one of each of the above for $4.95. I ordered too much food. Friendly service.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Okay food, grumpy service, average price. If you just want basic food and can't find anyplace else, this will do.
