I live locally and have driven past here dozens of times but never dined here until tonight. A family member suggested the Caldwell House because the very popular but overrated steak and seafood place up the road was booked solid. We were all blown away...More

Great restaurant and food, you want Josh as your server.Large portions. Was a tad bit disappointed in the strogonoff. Not much flavor at all. Wouldn't order again. Hubby had the sirloin and lobster tail and it was fantastic.

The Caldwell House Restaurant and Martini Bar is a chef owned and operated establishment located in Lake George, NY. We are delighted to bring you the best casual fine dining experience Lake George has to offer. We pride ourselves on our exceptional service, atmosphere and food selections. We are located in one of the area’s original log cabin restaurants, built in the late 1940’s with logs imported from Canada and fireplace stones brought up from the bottom of Lake George’s crystal waters. Our name derives from the original town of Caldwell, changed to the town of Lake George in 1962.
