We played mini golf till late, I called the restaurant at 9:30 to see if we were too late for dinner. They said "come on in!" It was quiet, we were the last diners. They didn't rush us at all, we had a great conversation with the bartender and the owner. They were so friendly, the calamari, ribs, salad and... More

I visited the rain tree with my mother and husband. We just happened by the place while we were on vacation in lake george. I had the chicken penne ala vodka, my husband had the margarita pizza.... if you wanted to call it that, and my mother had the chicken marsala. The parking is NOT GOOD AT ALL. If you... More

Had heard some good things about the restaurant so we went on our first night there. Got seated right away. We all ordered, there were some minor substitutions, like potato or pasta instead of rice. 3 of the orders came out wrong. In one dish, there was a fly, another a hair. They took off 1/2 the order with the... More

We arrived rather late into Diamond Point, it was recommended that we try the Rain Tree. SO glad we did. We chose to eat at the bar, the ambience was amazing! The little bartender was nervous as it was her first day, but with guidance from the owner she did GREAT, forget her name, but she is going to do... More

We decided to try this restaurant on a whim. The location near but outside of Lake George Village gave us the convenience of close proximity but without all the crowds. The parking lot was a welcome change from the village parking spot search. The service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed and allowed for leisurely laughs with close... More

Hubby and I enjoy stopping in for a drink at their beautiful ADK bar, complete with the beauty and warmth of the aged log structure and stone fireplace. Family owned and run. Ask about the "secret" beer tap handle collection!

Do you want to feel like your boyfriend is making dinner to impress you? Then come to the RainTree. A homey, family atmosphere with food to match. I had the eggplant, my husband had the chicken marsala, both of which tasted like they came out of an Italian grandmother's kitchen. Yet, I still wished I had ordered the burger, which... More

Right across the street from our hotel but despite mixed reviews went there with low expectations. We arrived and waited 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Finally the hostess- waitress came over and told us that she had no tables at that time but have a seat and when one opened up she would seat us but said if she... More

This was the worst restaurant ever!!! We should have walked out after being served stale bread . I was served rancid applesauce as a side dish with my porkchop. We should have known when we saw fewer than 5 cars in the parking lot.The place should be closed down.
