My family and I have been enjoying Melody Lodge for many years. We have always had fantastic food and great service. Enjoy a pre dinner drink on the porch and enjoy the view.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Finding a restaurant like this in the hamlet of Speculator, New York was, no doubt, a pleasant surprise. My wife and I loved the beautiful view as the sun set, and the food was wonderful. Kyle, our waiter, was very gracious; hopefully we'll be able to return in the future and enjoy the incredible ambience. The Brie, carrot and dill soup was delicious, along with the haddock, and veal with artichoke. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.

“Great Food/Rooms not so much”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Had a family get together at Melody Lodge (6 adults, 2 pre-schoolers). Ate at bar Friday night. Very good food and great waiter, but noisy as one might expect. Had reservations for Saturday night, but released since bar eating seemed easiest for children. Restaurant upscale, superb menu, and VERY busy for a Sept weekend. So busy in fact it was impossible to sit in front of fireplace to relax. Went to bed early. Rooms pleasant, but lots of noise from restaurant downstairs. Largest room #4 (appropriately the "cymbals" room)for children and their parents exceptionally noisy (just over kitchen), even when restaurant cleared out at midnight. Lots of pans banging and radio turned up loud. Didn't complain, but obviously a negative. Worst though were the showers. Scalding hot in "clarinet room" - dangerous to the point of being burnt. Other rooms reported ice cold showers during either morning or night.

“good food but too expensive”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've been here a number of times starting 10 years ago and I think it has declined a bit. While it is unusual to find gourmet food in such a remote place I think this restaurant is resting on its past reputation. The food is still good, but it is way too expensive. And the rooms get very crowded and noisy. But I had to give it four stars because it is better than average, just not a great value.

I've never tried the bar area. I think I will next time I am in the area.

“One of our Favorites”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Melody Lodge has dining both in the Dining Room and the Bar are. Both are first rate experiences, good food and good atmosphere with a mix of locals and visitors. It's best to make a reservation for the dining room and sometimes there can be a wait in the bar area, but it is worth it. Good selection of food on the menu.
