Where to start? Food - terrible and painfully late in delivery. Planned on one of the great looking veal dishes from the online menu. Menu online COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from in house menu! Excuse for this was unbelievable - "Some People" may have entered different items ....someone should really explain to some staff how domain names work before coming up with... More

Past the Million Dollar Beach, up a hill, around a corner, over a ridge and across a swamp. It takes a little time and some patience to find Dunham's Bay Resort and the View Restaurant. For a boater, it's an easier trek from the busy, brassy Lake George waterfront. The advantage of coming here is that it's quiet, almost eerily... More

We had dinner with our family. It was quiet. in the restaurant, only a few tablets. Friendly service and the scallops were excellent. Chicken parmezan also very tasty.

The View Restaurant at Dunham's Bay Resort is a hidden treasure at Lake George. The best fried calamari I've ever had anywhere. Rosemary salmon with basmati rice is perfectly done. The servers are attentive without being intrusive and always super friendly. Light yet filling fare with a beautiful view of Lake George.

The salmon meal was awesome. The 1/2 chicken meal was good but not over the top. We were dressed casually and felt underdressed. We shared meals and that was apparently frowned upon since the waitress wouldn't provide extra dinner plates only bread plates. So the food was good service not great.

We arrived around 6pm in early October. The dining area was surprisingly small and empty but we were seated right away and next to their big window overlooking the lake. It was literally a great "view". Our server was very interested in helping us. He was informative and knowledgeable about their offerings. I tried their reasonably priced skirt steak. It... More

We enjoyed the brunch and for the price the offerings were very nice. I specifically enjoyed the roasted red potatoes, the rib eye and the French toast. The server was very friendly and attentive. The view of the lake is very nice. After we ate we wandered across the street to take pictures when a horrible nasty man came out... More

So, Brunch "on the bay" was a little misleading. Based on the description I was picturing an outdoor brunch super close to the water so I was a little disappointed upon arrival to see that it was brunch indoors and only certain tables offered an actual view of the bay. However, with that said my party was lucky to get... More
