It's a tradition for my husband and I to stop by the Tamarack every time we are in Inlet. It's our favorite cafe. The staff is great and the food is amazing. Try the Country Scramble! It's delicious and enough for two people.

Since we ate here before, we decided to wait at the counter until an outside table became available. Our selections were hamburgers and fries and we were not disappointed. After waiting a little, our burgers came and were delicious. They tasted very good with lettuce and tomato. plus the fries were not bad either. A relaxing time was had on... More

Stop here generally for lunch when in Inlet due to fact it is mainly the only lunch place on the strip. Generally enjoy their burgers. Nothing special but tasty enough to return. Good coffee. Lots of waitresses bustling around. Service is good - not real friendly due to busyness of place.

We got there at 11:45 am and were told we couldn't get breakfast, anymore which was fine of course, but for the next 30 minutes we watched breakfast plates come out. I guess they were back ordered. It was normal diner-quality food. I had a BLT with cheese and pickles, which I'd found intriguing on the menu and did indeed... More

Every year during our week long Adirondack camping trip we go to this restaurant for breakfast at least twice during the week. The service is great and the food is very good. I did however ask for a non dairy creamer and they didn't have any. Not a big deal. I drank it black.

Nice place, very friendly staff. The place is small and gets very busy on the weekend mornings during Summer. There are a few tables outside which is a nice place to sit and people watch as you eat. You can get food to go also. Egg sandwiches and pancakes are good. Burgers, turkey club, wraps and grilled cheese all were... More

Really cute family run cafe with a fishing theme. Stop in early and grab a seat because it fills up quick. Food is always good.
