Sorry for the rant, but I hope my fellow chowhounds will understand my quest for good food. I am currently staying in Loon Lake, north of Bolton and Lake George. We are right near Friends Lake Inn and have reservations to eat there again tomorrow. It is the only restaurant we have enjoyed in the area, so far. I have been cooking all of the other meals and I need a break. We are looking for other options, casual or not. Can be lunch; a nice salad, good fries, or even breakfast, a greasy spoon with good food is fine.
Have eaten at Algonquin in Bolton and left most of our food there as inedible and dirty. The views were nice, but once the waitress came by with a dirty pitcher to refill my water, we left. The food appeared to be straight from the can, package, etc. Firehouse (?), up the road, was a bit better with a nice fish fry and french fries, but then they pile on hush puppies (and something else I can't remember). Ate at Well's House and had lobster roll that wasn't so great; mostly a huge hamburger roll and filler. Cafe Adirondack was cute, but the menu consisted of steak with shrimp and scallops, often all together on the plate. It seems that many places take popular items and thoughtlessly combine them into one entree. Oh, and last year we went to the Sagamore. It is all the show of old-school fine french dining, with horrible service. Having to search for our server all throughout the meal. The food was not good either. ("Heirloom" tomatoes were not as billed, mozzarella slices and balls were stuck together as if left in the fridge overnight - definitely not fresh)
Yes, I am picky, but I really am not asking for much.
I know its a holiday weekend and many people are not at the computer, but if there is someone out there, please help.
Thanks and have a great holiday weekend!!!!!
