We stopped into this little place while in the area and we are so glad we did! "Café" really doesn't do this restaurant justice. The food was amazing! I had the scallop special and my wife had the lobster roll special. Both were just the right amount of food, flavors were great together and it was artfully displayed, gourmet meals... More

We stopped by the other evening and sat out on the pourch. They now have it enclosed with clear plastic shades, propane heaters and a blanket for the ladies laps. This is one of our favorite places.

I have been coming to this lovely restaurant on the Hudson for years. My niece had her wedding rehearsal dinner here. Very varied menu. Great burgers, soups, and sandwiches. Then there are the fish tacos, sushi tuna salad, braised lamb shanks, award winning chili. My Go To place for dinner. Eating outside on the deck...even in the fall (with heaters!)... More

UpRiver Cafe has been attracting a steady following of local customers and visitors to the area for 7 years. Situated with a lovely view of the narrowest spot on the Hudson River, it brings much-deserved attention to a place with natural beauty. A diverse menu offers plenty to choose from. The portobello sandwich I ordered was accompanied by a fresh... More

Upriver Cafe is situated in a medium size house overlooking the Hudson River. It would appear that on most nice days lunch(and perhaps dinner) are served on the semi enclosed porch, with heaters if necessary, as the inside seating is very limited. The day we were there for lunch the 30 or so seats on the porch were fully occupied,... More

Mine was a Rachel , sliced fresh turkey, Swiss cheese and Cole slaw on grilled rye bread. The best on I have had in months. Companions had a burger and other... More

We ate here on a warm September evening with two other couples. We were seated on the back porch overlooking the river. Due to the dry conditions more like a stream. The food and the service were great. I had the lobster Mac and cheese, on a recommendation of one of the other couples and it was so rich, gooey... More

Decided to venture out of Lake George main street for dinner for something different during our stay. Everything was delicious. I had a cup of corn chowder which was full of corn and veggies and was the size of a bowl at any other place. Husband had meatloaf and mashed potatoes that he devoured. Ended the meal with perfect root... More

My wife and I have been going here for over 30 years. I remember well when it was Papa’s ice cream parlor, and a fixture in Lake Luzerne. The new owners have done a nice transformation to the place and have provided a very trendy selection on the menu seldom found elsewhere. I had a salad that was delicious with... More
