We had the best time at the Lake George Dinner Theater. I'll review the food then the play.

Food-This is one of those places where you get to pick one of four meals. The choices were good, Beef, Chicken, Salmon or Vegetarian. The food was pretty good for this type of setup. Usually this canned sort of menu is like airplane food but this wasn't bad. Bring your own spices because it was fairly bland for my taste. Alcohol is served and it's fairly pricey. Good coffee and a good selection of wines and cocktails. Raspberry Cheesecake for desert was yummy.

The Play-This was excellent. We saw Lake Effect. The set was wonderful, the actors spectacular. This is a very personal dinner theater. Only about 150 people max and they have been in operation for about 50 years.

Overall this was a great deal. Dinner Theater is an old tradition I think should never go out of style. You are sitting at a group table so be prepared to meet some nice people. Service was very good as well.

The food was decent. It is served table side. You may be sitting with strangers but the family we sat with were lovely. The play had a great storyline that anyone can identify with. The actors were unexpectedly great. All in all it was well worth it. Look around town on an info rack for $9 off per person and they also give discounts for seniors 60 and up.

When a blizzard traps a family together in their tavern in Buffalo, NY, both comedy and drama ensue. The Lake George Dinner Theatre's production of "Lake Effect" at the Holiday Inn is funny, poignant, and very well acted by a cast of professional actors. The theatre is intimate, so even when there's a full house (as there was the night I went), no one is far from the stage.

The dinner served before the show was good banquet-type fare, offering a choice of beef, salmon, chicken, or vegetarian lasagna. The price of the dinner and theatre is $69, but at some of local establishments, you can find ads (rack cards) for $9 off.

Had not been to dinner and a show at the theater for several years. Went to see this summer's show Lake Effect, partly because the setting was Buffalo, NY in 1977 during the blizzard of the century, but mostly because it was an anniversary gift.
Both the show and the dinner were a pleasant surprise. The dinner choices were good, the service was very good, and the food quality very, very good.
This was only the second night of the new show, and I must say the actors were high quality and the show a great combination of humor and thoughtful drama that definitely had the entire audience engrossed. I did not see any idle chat that you sometimes see when an audience is bored.
The Theater is a really good venue and the show worth attending.

You'll realize the minute you pull up front this is not your average Holiday inn. Great views of the lake, fire pit aglow, and a wonderful bar and featuring. The dinner theatre is great with all tables near the stage, never a bad vs how and the food extraordinary. Service is impeccable and the salmon. Chicken choice or beef entree as good as any local restarant. Almost guaranteed of a wonderful night. The only mistake you may make is not actually staying here to enjoy all the ambiance and friendliness of one of this national chains best properties. And don't miss the best buffet in town on Fridays when Chef Michael presents a great seafood buffet.
