“Great Burgers & Soft Serve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I have been stopping at the Loft for a number of years on my way north. They have great burgers & sandwiches and the soft serve is good. Excellent alternative to Mickey D's. A little noisy sitting outside as it is on the corner but there are some booths inside & it is air conditioned. It does not claim to be anything other than a "burger joint".

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Place is a little bit overrated in the previous reviews. The inside is pretty run down, sitting outside is not a great option with heavy traffic. Food is ok, but at the end it is a burger and french fries, nothing spectacular about it (alternative to the other fastfood places though). Not a place I have to go back to.

“Overpriced and bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I stopped on the way home at this cash only place and got bad food and slow service. My boyfriend got a sad looking burger and I got van de kamp fish on a bun. I do not recommend this place.

“Have gone to this little place several times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

over the years - great burgers, great shakes, great deep fried anything - mushrooms, cheese, veges - each time the food is consistently yummy - so I am sure many calories - so if you go rarely, you can enjoy & not feel guilty !

“Yum! Glad this is open again right now!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This convenient spot is a frequent drive by on the way to South Lake George outdoor recreation, or outlet shopping. The service was prompt and friendly and the decor harkens back to an older time of 20th century traditions and is really funny to boot. The food was served quick, hot, and very good. Took me back to my high school days. Prices are reasonable and a great and fun place for a quick bite if you find yourself hungry in this little area.
