Food and ambience

Location and contact

The Caldwell House Restaurant and Martini Bar is a chef owned and operated establishment located in Lake George, NY. We are delighted to bring you the best casual fine dining experience Lake George has to offer. We pride ourselves on our exceptional service, atmosphere and food selections. We are located in one of the area’s original log cabin restaurants, built in the late 1940’s with logs imported from Canada and fireplace stones brought up from the bottom of Lake George’s crystal waters. Our name derives from the original town of Caldwell, changed to the town of Lake George in 1962.

I can somewhat understand why this place was voted as the #3 restaurant in Lake George. The log cabin vibe is cool, the place is bustling, and the hearty comfort-food menu has something for everyone. But if you're a gourmet foodie, you might find yourself...More
