This restaurant was absolutely charming. We ate outside on a picturesque fall day and watched all the Lake George water activities. If we ever get back to Lake George, we will be stopping here again.

Been going here for years - romantic and scenic restaurant with turret seating and great lake views north and south. The full bar faces south over the water and they have an outdoor lounge where summer bands play almost every weekend. Paul the chef has been improving his offerings each year this year was probably the best ever. Thanks Paulie!... More

The Boathouse is the resident restaurant for the Lodges at Cresthaven. It is located right on(over) the lake and as a result has mostly nice views over the water. They made a mistake by not putting more glass on the lakeside of the restaurant and as a result you frequently have to look around a window divider wall to enjoy... More

The food was okay, I think, I can't remember. The room was nice, we had one (10 people) all to ourselves overlooking the water. The parking was odd, but the guy taking people down in a golf cart was a nice touch. But the bartender? Maybe in 40 years he'll be friendlier, or in a new profession. Had no qualifications... More
