“Great bar scene”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We were there Saturday night (July 12th) and the place was slammed, the bartenders were great. Super friendly and efficient. Definitely the place to be on a Saturday night. Drinks weren't over priced, made just right, and very speedy service with a smile.

“Horrible Service, Inedible food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The only thing this place has going for it is its view which is probably how they can get away with the terrible service and food. We had to go find someone to wait on us and even after we did, it took 10 more minutes for him to come over to us. When we finally got him to take our order we had to ask 2 times for our drinks and then when the food came he disappeared. He seemed confused when we asked for plates and silverwear when he brought out our appetizers- steamers (cold) and onion rings (flavorless and cold). The rest of the food was horrible. My daughter's chicken parmesan was rubbery and tough, the breading was soggy and the sauce had a tinny taste like it came out of a can. My boyfriend and I ordered fish and chips and the meal was flavorless. The fish was overcooked, french fries were soggy and undercooked. Nothing on the plate had any flavor or texture it was just mush. On top of it, the prices were not reasonable. There are plenty of other places to eat on the lake that have much better service and food. I recomend any of them but this place!

“Great spot, good food, slow service”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

There is a deck overlooking the busy end of Lake George, so the scenery is beautiful. The place is dated for sure, with a sticky dance floor inside and really needing a painjob. However, being at the beach, one is inclined to overlook this as "quaint." The servers outside are busy and it is seat yourself. We were overlooked for 15 minutes before getting a menu to look at, The good is fine in a nachos and sandwiches kind of way.

“Good views, bad service”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We came here for an afternoon snack on a Sunday. We just got beers and the sampler but it was hard to enjoy food with staff running around like they have no idea what they are doing or what is going on around them. This place is really unorganized. Manager/waiter/bartender Steve ran around like crazy doing everything but also screwing up our bill. He also appeared to be drinking on the job which is super unprofessional. By the way, the sampler was definitely not worth getting; too greasy. We will NOT be returning.
