First of all, finding a place to eat in Lake George on a Saturday night during Winter Carnival is a feat in itself. We made several stops at various bars hoping to enjoy a few drinks, a cozy fire and a nice meal but there were lines everywhere we went. We gave up looking for a cozy bar and found... More

My husband and I were in Lake George, NY, for the weekend. We had planned to go to another restaurant but the wait was almost 2 hours. This was the best thing that could've happened. We ended up stopping at the Caldwell House and it was a great surprise. The atmosphere is great, has a very rustic feel. Our waitress... More

My family was in town for our son's basketball tourney, I had researched Trip Advisor and thought this would be good as the reviews were pretty good and it was almost next door to our hotel. We walked in, the atmosphere was friendly and inviting, the food was delicious, the drinks were great (nice wine selection and huge martini menu)... More

Wow! The Caldwell House was great! We had been there years ago, and we weren't impressed. But this last time was such a nice surprise! The ambiance, the attentive staff, and the menu choices were excellent. The food prep was perfect, and we left wondering why we had not been back there sooner!

The most wonderful Filet Mignon (House), cooked perfectly and most generous Manhattan I believe I have ever had! We sat in front of a beautiful full roaring fireplace and totally enjoyed ourselves. I want to highly recommend, the service was excellent and ambiance perfect. Treat yourself to a really nice meal.

Since I had never been here before I was a little tentative; however, once I walked into the place it was very surprising. Very rustic and very welcoming. I brought my kids to dinner and they loved the place. We were seated in a nice area; although we would have loved to have been by the fireplace in the big... More

I have been to the Caldwell House with my wife, with a business party of eight and my son and daughter- in- law rehearsal dinner (35 people) and we have received an awesome meal and great service every single time.

Got early bird dinners. Filet mignon is tiny with strange-tasting crab meat topping. Asparagus are so tiny, they're like toothpicks - without any flavor. As another writer mentioned, mashed potatoes are GARLIC-mashed (presumably powder or jarred). This should be specified and not a surprise. Carrot side was way overcooked and had a candied flavor. I found the bread pudding to... More

This chef/owner restaurant goes above and beyond preparing and serving mouth watering, tasty food. Large portions served by friendly servers always willing to accomodate any request. Adirondak cabin style with blazing fireplace. A must.

Lots of atmosphere in this log cabin rustic with two fireplaces. Menu quite extensive. Special Early Bird from 4-6. They will take reservations and in summer or on weekends you need them. Staff is welcoming, friendly and you can tell they like to work here together. We ordered from "early bird" menu two beef entrees--filet and top sirloin. Delicious and... More
