Ate in the pub part of the restaurant. Casual, with the full menu of the more formal restaurant available to us. Full menu - lots of options. Enjoyed my meal. Would go again.

We stopped here on a recent visit to the Adirondacks. The view of the surrounding mountains is quite nice at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly, and the food was very good - tasty! Nice fine dining in the area.

Everything was wonderful; good menu selections, great views, casual but nice nice nice! Prices were higher than expected, but food quality did not disappoint. Bar food was much the same menu as dining room with some deviations - but the quality was the same...great...
