This restaurant was absolutely charming. We ate outside on a picturesque fall day and watched all the Lake George water activities. If we ever get back to Lake George, we will be stopping here again.

Hi Virginia! We do not have breakfast on site, there is a full kitchen in the lodge though, so many people choose to have breakfast in! Otherwise there are many restaurants around that have breakfast.
