“Go for the view; the food is pretty good, not great”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

The new chef is good, but not up to the high creative standards set by Ken Lingle, the previous executive chef. The portions are a little precious given the high prices, especially the appetizers,, and well-prepared but not innovative. The duck breast and veal cheeks were excellent, but the double lamb chops were stringy and undercooked.
The setting, however, made it all worthwhile - a spectacular view over the Queen of American Lakes!

“Very Little Food Expensive”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Went there for dinner on a holiday. The portions are extremely small, the staff is snobbish. After our main course dessert took forever and I had to eventually go and search for my waitress to get my check. Great view and ambiance, but that's it.

Has to be the best all around room & dining experience in the Capital district region. Take the Lake George room if it is available.

“Treated like royalty”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

The Inn at Erlowest is a stunning old stone castle-like building on beautiful Lake George in the Adirondacks. We took my parents for dinner and were led to a little private diningroom off the kitchen. The room held one table, had a bank of windows and a fireplace. The service was beyond what I've ever experienced at any restaurant. The cook came in for a photo with us. The food is very fancy...I'm not really a gourmet, so I can't comment too much on that. It was all about the atmosphere and experience for me. A night to remember.
