The Boardwalk Restaurant occupies one of the best locations on the lake in terms of dining with a view, but your experience will stop there. The interiors of both the upstairs deck and the downstairs dining room are bland and uninteresting and I can say about the same for the food.

Anybody who purchases a ticket to the Steamboat Company of Lake George boat rides gets a ten per cent discount at this restaurant, so I decided to try it. I'd suggest that you keep on stepping down the street for a bit better meal. The food is nothing special; the service is without enthusiasm.

Try Sicilian Spaghetti House or the sandwich place at the top of the hill above Boardwalk instead.

Being that we have sent people to this restaurant and gotten bad comments about it we went to see what it was like. We acted as tourists to get the real feel of the food and service. We had no problems at the establishment. The food was great and the view of the lake marvelous.

This place was recommended to us for the best view of the firework show. Unfortunately they serve the worst food I ever had and the service was terrible.

We made reservation for the restaurant downstairs, since I was told the food on the upstairs deck was fried-pub food, (chicken fingers, fries, sandwiches, etc.) Well, it couldn't have been worse than the food they served us in the restaurant because everything was frozen from a box. I have actually had much better food in a Pub.

The calamari was cold and soggy and the stuff shrimp with crabmeat was overcooked with a horrible stuffing and not a hint of crabmeat.

The food was such a disappointment, I couldn't even enjoy the fireworks.

it was a good place to sit down and enjoy the breeze. The scenic was great! However, they just provide junk food. Go for a little brunch or snack time.
