Get your turkey & mealoaf fix here at Grandma's back porch. It's a very unique atmosphere... and the prices are pretty reasonable. I was torn between trying one of their homemade Italian dishes, or going with the turkey & stuffing. Decided to go with the turkey and I was not disappointed. All food is homemade and nice portions. Service was... More

That was the friendliest atmosphere with the best breakfast I have had in a long time. I felt just like I was in grandma's kitchen for real... Nice size portions as well. Even my greedy husband couldn't finish all his breakfast. LOL

Just visited on Sunday night and they were busy. They do now accept credit cards. I had the turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing. It was delicious and the stuffing is AMAZING! My husband had the ribs and my daughter had the kids hamburger. We all loved our food and the salad bar. $54 for 3 people for... More

We were told we had to eat here next time we visited Lake George. That was either a joke or the person telling us didn't like us much. The all-you-can-eat salad bar was miniscule and if you wanted to go back for seconds I guess you've never been to a real salad bar. The soup was totally unpalatable (couldn't quite... More

We actually ate here twice during our vacation to Lake George. Both breakfast and dinner on two separate days. It was a solid place. Its certainly not fine dining, but they deliver as advertised - the kind of meal you'd get paying a visit to your typical northeastern grandmother's house... good portions, not over-seasoned, and reasonably priced. The staff was... More

Great atmosphere and view of the lake. Decor was very old fashion a perfect representation of Grandma's back porch. Food was outstanding and service was fantastic. Hostess and waitress were very pleasant and attentive.

great home cooking - just the way you'd like it served. The menu has all you'd expect and the specials were very tasty. We liked the food so much - we did a large take-out dinner one night and they nailed it...cooked as requested, packed well and all the extras you need for take-out were included.

First I see people complaining about Grandma's taking only cash...that is not the case anymore just an FYI. All the food that we ordered from eggs and biscuits (special request from my 2 yo) to the parm meatloaf, the turkey dinner, was served with a smile. The waitresses were so sweet and accommodating. We enjoyed our meal and would eat... More

Grandma's is a great spot for breakfast! Very affordable and the food tastes great. The service is good too. If you sit outside on the porch you can look out at the scenery. There are a lot of trees across the street so you don't have a full view of the lake but the view is still wonderful.

Drawn in by the biscuits sign, stayed for good basic breakfast food. Suggest learning how to make real southern biscuits if you are going to advertise them!
