I have never been to an A&W and we happened to stumble upon this one on our bike ride into the Lake George area. Craving some good ol' American comfort food, this looked like the spot (strictly judging from it's curbside appeal)! We visited this...A&W on a Sunday at the end of September 2020 and were met by a pretty empty crowd. Only two other outdoor tables were occupied upon our arrival, so we were told to grab a seat anywhere we'd like. There were round tables (seating up to 4), as well as long tables that could seat up to 8-10. Our waitress was quick, efficient and super friendly. We ordered pulled pork, curly fries, onion rings and popcorn chicken. All arrived within 10 minutes of us placing our order and the food was great! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the food was not greasy at all and the flavors were good. Shoutout to the pulled pork, which was exceptionally tasty and not dry at all. We were on bikes, so we were able to park them in a designated bike rack, but I did happen to notice that parking for cars was limited. I would recommend to be mindful of this in case you happen to be traveling during a busier season. Either way, this is a great spot if you are looking for a quick fix or snack. It's also a great spot to visit if you'd like a photo opportunity with a DeLorean!More

I give respect to all the service people during the pandemic. I know it has been difficult. We stopped for lunch and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. Then we ordered our food and waited about 30 minutes. The food was good but...the pricing was terrible. It was very expensive for what we ate.More

Affordable burger joint, with many options for the family. Great burgers and the ice cold root beer in the mug seemed magical on a hot day.

Went here twice. First time I was ignored at the icecream window. I get it when it is busy.. but not being acknowledge is unacceptable. Second time was better. Kathy our server was exceptional and the rootbeer floats are yummy! I didn't care of steak...sub. It was loaded with mostly onions and green peppers. They should consider moving to a better location. Parking is atrocious!!!More

Had a fast dinner there on an October Friday night, and it was good- burgers, fish sandwiches, and hotdogs were all great. Cold, though- wind blew through, and it was in the 40's so we felt the breeze despite being in a booth outside. Wish...they had some sheltered or inside seating. All the other places we tried had loooong waiting lines just to sit outside, so this worked for us. Would go back again, but on a warmer evening! Nice service, good food, cheap eats- hard not to like it.More
