The building caught our eye on the way north, so we stopped in for lunch when we headed home again. Though it wasn't fancy we had delicious, well made burgers (one w/ cheese, one bacon cheese) and crispy fries. The service was quick and and friendly, and we were on our way. I wish I'd had room for a soft... More

Everything is deep fried and the whole joint smells like a deep fryer. If you are looking for a place to eat fries, burgers, hot dogs this is the place. This is not a place for healthy eating. It's just fast food served in paper trays and simply dash and dine.

My son and i were looking for some food outside of the village and stopped at the loft. The order was easy the food was good. Everything was great. Lots of tables outside if you want to let the kids run around.

We were travelling through Lake George with our dog, which limited our food options. We found the Loft online, and thought we'd give it a shot, as we always enjoy a drive-in. The food was, sadly, disappointing. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger, which was clearly just a re-heated frozen burger patty with limp, soggy bacon on top. My husband's chicken... More

Is this the greatest burger place? No. But it is quite good and the owner is a friendly fellow. We ate at the Loft three times while in Lake George. If you are looking for high end cooking, moved on. But if you want a decent burger at a reasonable price, stop here. The place looks a bit run down... More

This small little shop off Route 9 had delicious milkshakes and great prices. A great summer pit stop!

Well if you are up for fried everything, served with extra grease, slippery cheese, tons of salt and an assortment of sugary soft drinks to wash it all down this is definitely the place for you. If you are expecting choices that are different than burgers, fries and hot dogs this is not the place to go.

My wife and I come here every year when we are in town for the Balloon Festival. The Loft burger is to die for (2 burgers, bacon, fried onions, sauté onions and cheese on a Kiaser roll)
