Reviewed 31 July 2012

Food was beyond fabulous...service was second to none and the views of the lake from the terrace are unrivaled.
Not inexpensive by any stretch.

“Beautiful restaurant”
Reviewed 28 July 2012 via mobile

Beautiful old home with great decor and very good food . A must try if your looking for a special night out . The view is breath taking. If you go on a chilly enjoy the outdoor fireplace. Very cozy.

“Disappointing Night”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Every year when we go to Lake George, we make it a point to have dinner at The Inn at Erlowest Restaurant. This particular night was a bit disappointing. First off there was a Lake George Commerce party going on, so sitting on the patio with a drink and enjoying the lake was out of the question. Next our waiter who was training a young lady could have used some training himself. Everything we questioned him about was answered with "it's fantastic". After he broke our cork while trying to open the bottle and kept going at it, I told him I wasn't going to drink it with cork in my glass, he finally left and the bartender returned to open a new bottle. Our waiter became a little distant after that.
As for our meal, my appetizer...steak teriyaki was served in a chinese takeout container with chopsticks. The steak was tough and chewy and the noodles were hard to handle out of the carton with out making a messy marvin of myself. My husband's clams were the better choice.
Our main course was for a lack of better words terrible. The fish was old and overcooked. any vegetables were hiding in plain site. We both unfortunately opted for the same dish. The fruit tart would have been good sans the heavy salty crust and odd overly citrus taste. Considering the caliber of the restaurant, the food that is being turned out is not up to the price or the class of of days gone by. I have my doubts about returning next time.

“Overall great restaurant”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

We had a fantastic dinner - everything was deliciously prepared and the service was excellent. I am definitely planning on returning however, I will make sure that there is not a wedding planned for the same evening. It was a beautiful night so my group headed to the inn early to have a drink on the patio. When we got there, we were informed that the patio was closed due to the wedding and we were only able to sit in the dark, cramped bar area. A disappointing start to the evening, but all was fine once we were seated (which was quite a bit later than our actual reservation time.)
