“Dont go to Dunhams Bay”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We got up early 6 am ...no coffee. Bed was comfy. Water in sink dripped all night. Clean. We only stayed one night so it could have been better. For $140 a night in off season is expensive. Should have had a discount since we were attending a wedding

“Good Sunday Brunch Deal”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

During our stay in the Lake George village area we decided to drive over to the eastern part of the lake and try Dunham's Sunday brunch after seeing that it had been named the best brunch buffet in the area. It's only about 15 minutes from the village. It did turn out to be a very good basic buffet, and at only $12,95 per adult an outstanding deal. They have a chef attended omelet station, bacon, sausage, ham, hash browns, french toast, a few entrees (chicken, beef fajita, and a vegetarian dish on that Sunday), breads/muffins, salads, and an assortment of desserts/pastries. Couple that with nice view of the bay from the large window in the dining area and it was a nice hour spent away from the prices and crowds of Lake George.

“Food was delicious and the service was great.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

My husband and I went here for our 1st Anniversary while vacationing in Lake George. The menu had a variety of choices and everything we ordered (including dessert) was made with quality ingredients and was very yummy. Our waitress and bartender were so nice and really seemed to enjoy working here.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I have lived within 10 minutes of this place for 20 years and have always frequented there until recently when I find myself eating there 3-4 times a week. The Chef is doing everything right, because every single dish is A+. Seafood is always super fresh and the scallops are chock full of flavor. The nightly specials are usually the best bet as they are creative and delicious. Menu items change with the seasons as the chef only gets the freshest local ingredients. Highly recommended, and the view in my mind is the best on the lake. Very quiet atmosphere far enough away from all the tourists!! Go at sunset and watch the sun go down over the lake with a delicious meal, at a very reasonable price. By far the best restaurant in all of Lake George!!

Dear John C,
On behalf of Chef AJ Richards and his staff thank you so much for the kind words. We here at the resort are very proud of what we create in our kitchen. The menus are well thought out and a lot of care and consideration goes into all our food. Again thanks for taking what you consider to be a nice hide-a-way and sharing it with the public.
