Lake George, NY

Does anyone have recommendations for decent restaurants in Lake George. Not chains or franchises! Thanks

  1. We pass through Lake George from time to time and there's a nice mid-level Italian place called Cherry Tomato, I think (it might be in a neighboring town). They've got pizza, pasta, and other entrees. The shrimp and scallop bisque is fantastic. My family always has been satisfied with our meals there.

    1. Warrensburg has a nice restaurant, the name escapes me but it might be the grist mill.

      1. to add to this thread...any places with nice outdoor eating for the summer? preferably with a view??? nice place to spend a bit of time on a sunny afternoon?

        1. re: danoc

          Club Grill at the Sagamore golf course (for lunch).

        2. I think the best (and most interesting) restaurant we went to in Lake George was Pumpernickel's in Bolton Landing (north of Lake George village, near the Sagamore). It is an authentic German restaurant. The food was good and they have some unique cuckoo clocks.

          1. George's was always a good choice (just a bit off the "strip"). If you have the time, take the 35-45 minute ride to The Friend's Lake Inn. Through the years, the main drag (Canada St.) has yet to produce a great meal. For ambiance, find the best deck and stick to cocktails. If you drink enough, anything fried will taste good (just don't drive).
