While sightseeing one late summer afternoon, we stopped in to the Lookout Cafe for dinner. The second floor open balcony seating was great with a nice view of the lake. Being near the end of season the menu was limited. There was fast food fare which was ok with us. We ordered burgers, fries, fish sandwich, sodas and beer. As... More

We went to the Lookout Cafe for dinner on our last night in Lake George. We sat and waited 30 minutes for someone to stop over at our table. The restaurant was not even 25% occupied. Our waiter final took our order. Since we had a 2 and 3 year old with us, we asked for him to bring their... More

We enjoyed the lunch we had here after visiting the fort. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food - we only had sandwiches - was excellent. Sitting under an awning in the sun with a beer and that view up the lake - what's not to like?

This place is close to the Fort , and close to Ft William Henry Hotel, in fact I think it is owned by the Hotel. The location is the closest to the Lake George Steam ship ....all quick / fast food type stuff. Nothing to brag about. I wish it where a little better and we would probably hit it... More

We stopped here for lunch. We were seated right away. The view of the lake was fantastic. We thought the food was good and the view even better!

We wanted a quick lunch and headed to lookout Cafe. We had three young teens with us. We were seated quickly and the waiter seemed nice at first. All we ordered were three appetizers and fish and chips. The waiter took our order and disappeared for about 45 minutes. When we asked him about the food, he apologized and said... More

Great view but how many customers return. My fish and chips were good and that's where it ends. Everything served in styrofoam. Waiter forgot to bring our soup which was $13 a bowl. We were charged 35c for a serving of bbq sauce as its not usual to serve with a pulled pork sandwich. Burger comes with chips for an... More

Quick food prepared with not very much interest in providing tasty, healthy food . The prices were ( in relation to the quality and quantity served) on the high side

We stopped here after a day on the lake and they were able to get a family of 4 in with no wait at lunch time. There is a kids menu even though one is not featured on the menu located on the ground level. You will need to hike up some stairs to get to the restaurant but the... More

The food is average and a bit pricey but the view is excellent. The food is your normal pub/on the beach type stuff.
