We always enjoy stopping here after a few days of camping in the Adirondacks. Well prepared food, portion is decent, service is right on. Plenty to choose from the menu.

The food here is always great but the service is always horrible. The woman we had was just miserable. She seemed to have no sense of humor and didn't check on us at all. Again, great food and atmosphere but the service is just always so lack luster. They should really invest in good servers, not high school kids looking... More

Take Mother Out Of the Kitchen, Do It Today! Great place to go for lunch or dinner. Plenty of tasty choices from soup to desserts.

I had the Rueben and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were tasty and delivered quickly. They have some decent beers on tap and my gin and tonic was generous. We would definitely go back again. It was pretty full of locals which is a good indication that it's reliably good food. Recommended!

Nice place. Nice decor. Wait staff were very good. Good size menu with quite a few Mexican items listed. Had a reuben and it was good size. Served with chips. Fries would have been extra - too bad. Good selection of beer on tap. Went with Guinness. One family member went with a bowl of chili and he said it... More

This place was a relaxing and fun place to grab dinner. The menu options aren't extravagant, mostly just standard American Fare, but a good variety that is served fairly quickly and at a reasonable price. The cajun fries were especially tasty. As an avid skier also very much enjoyed the decor.

Staff is friendly and service is good. The burgers are the best anywhere. They are big (1/2 pound), juicy, cooked the way they were ordered, and come with a large variety of toppings for which there is no extra charge (e.g., mushrooms, onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, barbecue sauce, cheddar, smoked gouda, bleu cheese, Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack, American, Pepper Jack,...
