My family has been coming to the Lake George region for our family vacation for 21 years in a row. "Pumpy's", as we call it, is one of our favorite places to eat. When the kids were little, they loved the large cuckoo clock. Now they just can't wait for the food. Excellent German food with large portions - you... More

Genuine German Cuisine. The recipes in many cases have been handed down through the family to the Chef. Filling soup (1) and salad bar. Mostly German pickled salads besides norman green salad fixings. Save room for dessert! Schnitzels, sauerbraten, schweinebraten, rouladen, it was all good. For dessert we had the chocolate cake/cheesecake combo. The two of us couldn't finish it... More

This is one of our family's favorite restaurants in Bolton. Very delicious, homestyle German (or, depending on choice, not so German) food - kind servers - great beers. We bring the family several times each year and are never disappointed - the schweinbrauten and sauerbraten (both misspelled I'm sure) are in particular always great, as are the homemade spaetzle. Highly... More

Dined on July 25, 2015. Excellent attentive service, terrific menu and wonderful food. The steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious The pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon with pan juices was presented nicely and was delicious. The prices are fair and we look foward to dining again at this great restaurant.

I can't tell you which dish is the best yet because I haven't gone through their vast menu yet. You will not be disappointed.

Randomly stumbled upon this place while driving through the north country. The staff was very friendly and the dining room was throughly unique with a massive cuckoo clock from an old Times Square restaurant. The spatzle was some of the best I've ever had and their rye bread was great. The entrees were large and filling.
