There is little question that the setting is idyllic and that it would be hard to find a prettier setting in which to dine. That said, the food was passable yet was not nearly as special as the hype would suggest it be. It seems...More

There are many gluten free options. A great portion of the menu items can be prepared gluten free. For example, the Chefs Cut, exclude the spices from the meat and the steak is then gluten free. There are many other examples. More

Chateau on the Lake is located in upstate New York on Lake George, and is more than a dining establishment -- it's an experience. Our clients visit our property for at least 3 hours, select from our wine list, sit by the fire pit, savor a three to four course meal, and end their evening with coffee/after dinner drinks by the fire pit while roasting s'mores. Chateau on the Lake has been open since 2013, and we have quickly became a popular establishment, sold to capacity night after night. We are a great place to book your wedding. A memorable time is assured when you visit Chateau on the Lake. We hope to see you soon. We also now offer rooms that can be rented nightly. The rooms are located above the restaurant. They are luxury rooms. $500 - $1,200 per night.
