“Slow slow slow”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere is good and this is bar / food place. Nice and clean and friendly staff, however the management has to do something about service. There are not enough wait staff for the customers and the poor chef obviously hasn't got enough support to get food out on time. We were very patient and finally got our food 1 hr 20 mins later. By that point I had one bite of the fish and chips and had to leave with a very hungry and tired 4 year old who had hit melting point. No apology or offer to comp any food. Probably to busy to notice. Has potential but they need to sort this out. Would not return

“Relaxing Fun Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Was back home and went to the "new" Garrison. Still a great place to run into old friends, have drinks and enjoy a great meal. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and service.

“Great Food. Great Deck. Staff Needs some work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

During a recent trip to Lake George we ate at Garrison's twice. The have a very intriguing menu with much that needs to be tried. The outdoor seating area is really nice. While there isn't a view of the lake we have long since decided that good food trumps a view. Around Lake George you're lucky if you get edible food with a lake view. So it was great to discover Garrison's. I don't know what the name of this restaurant was before the major remodel but our server said it had opened around Mother's Day 2014. I would totally disregard any reviews prior to May 2014. It is rare that we eat at the same restaurant twice on a trip but there were too many interesting items on the menu to try at one meal. All the food was good to great. If they get a good staff in to serve the food this will be a much needed restaurant for Lake George. It is on the East side not too far from the main drag. It is totally within walking distance and worth it.
