I've been coming here for 30 years and I am never disappointed. Have only come for breakfast and always enjoyed great, friendly service and food. A good place to start the day!

I'm sorry, but this place is not that great. I ordered the so-called fried haddock. Which I believe they charged at least $17 dollars for. What a huge disappointment. Huge. This so called fried haddock is one of those triangular mechanically processed fish stick type things you find in a box in the freezer aisle at the supermarket. I don't... More

I was very happy with my breakfast. The biscuits were so good! Everyone was friendly and the service was great. The place was nice, it felt like I was visiting my grandmother's house. I would definitely come back next year.

We enjoyed eating at Grandma's on the back porch. The view was great and the food was good too. I would eat here again ~ but the porch area is not wheelchair friendly. Food was a little pricey but the view made it worth it.

Whenever we go to Lake George, I always can't wait to eat dinner here. It's all I think about on my drive to the Lake and we always eat there on our first night and I always get there right when they open at 4pm. I think the menu is reasonably prices for what you get. $18-20 for a dinner... More

Sausage Gravy is a No No for me!!! It has a metallic taste that is just nasty! The replacement pancakes were ok, but who can mess pancakes up! The home fries are potatoes deep fried with nothing - no seasoning, no flavor and no taste! Please save yourself the wasted trip to this restaurant! It was Awful! Highly Disappointed 😟

I was disappointed in the breakfast, the eggs served were pullets, smallest I have ever seen for top dollar. The grilled cake were flat and to much oil in cooking. Should serve pancakes instead which everyone loves while on vacation. High priced for a family breakfast on vacation. nice.

We had breakfast here while staying next door. It was average quality, and very expensive for what you get. It does have a lovely porch to dine on, or you can eat inside. Very close to the village of Lake George.
