Claims best burger on the lake; definitely not based on the reviews on here or first-hand experience? 20 minutes to get to seated at 2:00pm and another 20 minutes to get a waitress to pay attention that we were there. 30 minutes ( menu stated...More

We eat here each time we come to Lake George. Always on a Thursday night so we can view the fireworks. Have never been disappointed. Food selection is small but you can overlook that. Staff is great.
