Only stay here if you enjoy a bar that stays open until 3am. Only stay here if you enjoy other quests sitting on the shared porch outside you room's window, drunk & smoking, talking loudly at all hours that suit their own needs without any thoughts that a few feet away are other guest's windows. This was "okay" (not really) until at 2am a group of the bar patrons, I assume hotels quests also, decided to hang out on the porch. Not conducive to sleep. I decided to not take on the drunks, I was too angry and they drunk - they finally went their way, but the bar remained hopping until 3am - the sounds and people spill over into the front parking area which the rooms overlook. We only stayed here to be close to Long Lake Camp for the Performing Arts. Last yr we stayed at the Shamrock, will again next yr.
> As to the food - boring, poorly done - everything we tried. Nothing cooked as order Rare = well done and Medium = rare AND it takes so long to even take an order that sending food back is too scary an option, after waiting 30 minutes just for a bottle of beer, a glass of wine and, a coke. My sons steak was burned (charred some might possibly call it) he could only eat half of it. And it seems odd that there is haddock, scallops and lobster on the menu - I guess there are actually no locate fish available? Are there no trout left in the lakes and streams, hardly. Lobster sells for $2.20 a lb at the dock and $20.00 a pop here, nice. Yes please serve me lobster on a Lake in the mountains. Anyone that likes the food here must be also lining up at the Olive Garden on date night, thinking that food is great. And it is better than this places.
The wait staff are friendly. They also oddly enough do not have enough menus, so even if you have a res they will have you wait, "until we have menus." I simply questioned this by saying, " Can't we at least order our drinks?" Lightbulb moment.
