In a very touristy town I did not expect to be impressed with an average looking place on main street but I was. The service was excellent and the food was every better. The blueberry pancakes were as good as I have had anywhere. Even...More

Very nice breakfast, large plates, great menu selection. Loved it to the last bit! Super professional service. Once we sat, all was smooth. Just the wait, the line outside, partly due slow turning over tables. Will be back!

Why is it so difficult to find a good coffee shop in Bolton Landing? Rhetorical, but nonetheless true. This place is a fine example of average. Nothing right or wrong with menu, just nothing exceptional or worth the visit. Try new place in town called...More

Can not say enough good things about Bolton Beans! This small breakfast/lunch restaurant is clean and the food is fresh. Coffee is great as well as the service. If you are visiting Lake George then Bolton Beans is a must!

We are a 1946 Service Diner originally from Wooster, MA. This dinner was moved to Bolton Landing in 1989 to replace the old 1904 Bill Gates Dinner which was placed in the Adirondack Museum. We take pride in keeping our dinner in its early native state, and love to see people excited about our little treasure. It is a quaint, buzzing atmosphere in the summer and houses many of the locals in the winter. November thru Mid May hours are: Friday thru Monday 7am-2pm, closed Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Mid May thru the summer we are open Every Day 7am-3pm.
