Even though we are largely vegetarian and are limited on the lunch menu to the grilled cheese, we go to Pitkins every time we are up in Schroon Lake. This is a real family restaurant and a crossroads of the many communities of people who live or visit the area. They are welcoming to all. The homemade pies and rice... More

The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Two of us decided to share a chef salad and it was a good choice. There was more than enough to serve 2... More

The Pulled Pork was really delicious! My son had their version of the Reuben. Pulled pork, slaw and melted Swiss cheese on toasted rye bread. The prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly.

Standard diner fare, charming spot, very clean and with exceptionally attentive and friendly staff. The only negative, for me and my son, was lack of vegetarian options. We both ordered grilled cheese and fries but a veggie burger option would have boosted this review by a point.

There were three if us coming off of a 4 day camping trip on Crane Pond and the special of the day was turkey and dressing. Plate was overloaded with turkey and homemade stuffing and cranberry, just like a Thanksgiving dinner. People were friendly and attentive.

Sleepy little town of Schroon Lake has a gold mine here! Fantastic service and food! They have been there since 1907 - says a lot. Our food was wonderful! French toast with real bacon and husband had omelet. Very attentive server and crowded. I would not hesitate to go back to this place again! Worth the trip!
