Good Menu. Prices very reasonable. Our service was excellent. We stop here when we stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Very casual..

“Local secret on the lake.”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Traveling home to NY with the family. Found on tripadvisor. Very surprised. Service and food were great. Very reasonable. I agree with others - don't be dissuaded by the look of the place. Only suggestion would be to be able to open some windows and outside seating. Definitely worth a visit.

“A throwback to '50's lakeside fun dining!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

The Retreat at Lake George is a rustic-y, rambling wooden lodge right on the eastern shore decorated with classic black-and-white, decades-old, area photos, furnished with wooden chairs and tables, serving EXcellent food of a great variety.
This was my third (?), fourth (?), visit in as many years and I have enjoyed it each time. The salad served with the entree', while small, is fresh with spinach and dark lettuces, slivered almonds, and craisins. Not an everyday iceberg bowl of bland. The grilled salmon, with a gorganzola glaze, accompanied by fresh, lightly sauteed broccoli, was very good and the apple tart for dessert? It seemed straight-out-of-the-oven!
This was an excellent visit, with attentive, friendly service and I recommend the short (less than a mile) deive from the freeway.
For those staying in the area, visit the bar before or after dinner to be entertained by the locals and lake peoples alike, with local music, too.

“Nice lake view, so so food”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The old retreat has the same tables and chairs for the last 20 years but the owners seem to be different. The waitress was a nice girl but was the only one for whole room. We had soup of the day which had to much garlic, appetizer, and some specials. It took awhile to get food and it was just ok!
