We were bicycling north of Whiteface and were lucky to stumble upon this place on Sunday, September 2nd as there was nothing else along the route. Doubly lucky as we were told that the restaurant would be closing for the season the next day.
The rustic restaurant/bar/billiards room/dance floor is part of the campsite/boat launching complex and as the only people in the large restaurant area at lunch time we were initially a bit skeptical that we would get a good meal; however, we were pleasantly surprised with the terrific burger/fries along with the especially friendly service. While there a dozen locals/campers/boaters came in, mainly for beers and conversation.
We will return next time round the mountain!
