“Average place”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

I've been here a few times. The view was nice and a convenient location if you're staying in Bolton Landing. The food was just ok and the service very slow. Don't go if you're starving. I'd say it's a good place for drinks and the scenery but that's about it.

“The Bar Is The Place To Be on Lake George”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The views from the bar are just the very best..... But, aside from the views, the food and drink is just superb. Whether it is for lunch, our favorite, or a late night dinner, you will enjoy yourself. Try to secure a window table or sit at the bar..... The rustic atmosphere is perfect for the location on beautiful Lake George! Nothing else even close! Go There! If you're a boater, as we are, you can dock your boat and enjoy the restaurant, or drive your car. Either way, it's just great. (Upstairs is a more sophisiticated dinner menu & great views)

“Food and Service are Adequate”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We've gone to the Algonquin several times over the years. The food is adequate, the service is fine. Its a little $$ for the type of food, but the location right on the lake and boat dock parking make it ideal for a mid-day snack, lunch, etc. We'd return.

“Food and view are both fine here”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

For a casual place, this restaurant offers a nice beer and wine list, and really good food. It is often busy, especially in the high season, but service is prompt and attentive. Drinks are well prepared and timed correctly with the meal service. The Algonquin is located on a fairly busy marina, with boat and wave runner rentals, which is fine for people watching. It is also one of the few places on the lake where you can dock and walk up to the restaurant. I have been here many times over the years and can say that I have never been disappointed with the food, atmosphere, or service. It can be easy to miss from the road as it is set closer to the water so keep an eye out if approaching by the roadway.

“Wish they had half stars”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

The Algonquin has been around for years. The food is OK but the setting is the big sell. Dockside at Lake George. Its fun to watch the boats come and go and there is live music many nights (think cheesy Jimmy Buffett covers). The food is better than average, but the service can be slow. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars (if that was an option) because they don't rise to the 4 star level.
