We arrived in Schroon Lake about 3:30 on a weekday having skipped lunch so were looking for an early dinner. We drove right by this restaurant because we thought it wasn't open.
Our second day we again wanted an early dinner. We found Sticks & Stones on TA and it was right up the road so we decided to try it.
It proved to be exactly the kind of restaurant we love to find when traveling. Local ambiance, good food, friendly attentive staff, all the good things mentioned by other reviewers.
We started with a local beer, Paradox Pilsner and really liked it.
I had the eggplant parm appetizer (a favorite dish of mine) as my entree and made me wish this restaurant was close to home. The warm sauce was served on the side , a nice touch. My husband had a thin crust pizza which he liked.
For dessert we each had the house made Apple Crisp which could have easily served two.
When we entered we were greeted by our waitress, Carisse who was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. One of the co owners, Gary, came by. and we had a good conversation. He clearly cares about the restaurant and the people he serves and tries to meet each one. We made a couple of suggestions which he seemed genuinely interested in.
We had called ahead because we found conflicting reports of the opening time. Currently they open at 11:30 for lunch and remain open until 9. Starting Tuesday June 17 they will open for breakfast. We got a sneak peek at the menu and it has something for everyone from fruit and yogurt, to multiple egg and meat combos and omelettes.
You know you are in the Adirondacks by the decor and the relaxed homey atmosphere and reasonable good food was exactly what we were looking for.
