Lake George dining suggestions?

pamE Apr 14, 2009 05:16 AM

Will be traveling to Lake George, NY, for a romantic getaway in a few weeks. Looking for ideas for restaurants, upscale and modern with a "vibe," and great food. Am I dreaming that we would find such a place in this area?

    Here are some our our favorites,
    Brunettos rt 9 warrensburg 518.623.1041 call first
    we also love the farm house at the top of the world and have had a good meal at the gristmill in warrensburg.
    also, OP Fredricks in chestertown on loon lake has a great casual bar good basic food nothing fancy, it seems to be were all the locals eat

      pamE, I think you're dreaming. . . We did find a few decent lunch places in Quensbury and on the Lake heading toward The Sagamore. We went to The Inn at Erlowest for New Year's Eve and for the price point were not impressed. If you are willing to venture off the Lake you will find much better food in Saratoga Springs. Bloomer's and The Wine Bar are my personal favorites.

        I agree ^.

        "upscale and modern with a "vibe," and great food"

        LOL -- it's the ADIRONDACKS silly!

        My favorite place near there is Davidson Bros. Brewery. But, oh, no, NOT upscale or modern...

          That's in Glens Falls, not near at all. Might as well send them to Friends Lake Inn. We liked the Gristmill in Warrensburg also....

          Sadly, Bloomer's is now closed . . .

            Try the Inn at Erlowest.

              What about taking a ride to Bolton's Landing. There are some nice places along the main street and The Sagamore, of course

                We ate at Mister Browns Pub at the Sagamore which was casual but had a nice vibe and an interesting menu with good food. A walk on the grounds of the Sagamore afterwards is very romantic.

                We absolutely loved Farmhouse Restaurant at Top of the World when we were in Lake George last summer. http://www.topoftheworldgolfresort.co...
