While we were on vacation in the Adirondacks we did not generally eat very well, sigh. But there were two big exceptions which I wanted to let people know about.
We had a great lunch at The Shack in North Creek (on Rte. 28 north of Warrensburg). The Shack is located in a field by the side of Main St. a few hundred feet from 28; they make great sandwiches and wonderful pie. After lunch you can enjoy the railroad museum a little further down Main, which features a working steam-engine train. Note: The Shack has only been in business since May so I would make no guarantees about it continuing to be there. But if you're in North Creek or driving along 28, it's definitely worth checking.
Later on, we had an excellent dinner at the Adirondack Blarney Stone in Long Lake, further north on 28. (Long Lake seemed, based on my initial impressions, like it would be a very nice place to spend your whole vacation; we did not find it until our last day there, alas.) Ellen had fish and chips, I had mussels, everything was just right, including service and atmosphere.
