My husband and I had dinner on the outdoor porch on a beautiful fall evening. The food was fantastic, large portions filled with flavor. I had the salmon with lump crab, tomatoes and capers with pureed butternut squash. My husband had the french fisherman's stew with tuna also fantastic flavor. Topped it off with pumpkin cheesecake. Service was great everyone... More

We came up for the day from the Utica area and decided to have a late lunch here, it looked cute and the reviews and menu were appealing. Oops....our bad. We probably should have gotten up and left after being seated and waiting waiting waiting and waiting some more for some one to stop by and take our drink/food order.... More

The food can be very good at Sisters, but it can also be just average, so if I were to make one suggestion to the owners, it would be to focus on consistency. The first time was really very good. The second was still good, but not nearly as good as the first time. When they're "on", the food is... More

Thanks for your critique Jay! We appreciate your patronage & want EVERY visit here to be "on!" During the period of your second visit we were experiencing some Chef problems but, unfortunately not before your second visit, we have remedied the situation. We hope that next season, if not before our closing this w'end, you will return & give us... More

While on a weekend getaway, we decided to try Sister's Bistro for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Relatives had gone there for lunch and enjoyed it so I thought the dinner would be a nice night out to celebrate. We wanted a nice romantic atmosphere, which Sister's has. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. While our waiter was nice, he... More

6 of us tried 12 different dishes. We had soups, salads, sandwiches, craft beers etc etc. All were very good. The server was cheerful and helpful. At some point the manager stopped by and he was gracious and welcoming too. We ate inside, where the decor has a Victorian flare. There appeared to be a patio outback and some tables... More

Stopped for lunch after cruising main St and narrowing our choices. Had eaten there several years ago. Sat outside, comfortable and close to firemans parade passing by. Soup and salad combo very tasty. Somewhat on small side but it was very good. This is Old Forge and touristy so prices tend a little higher. Definitely go back and try dinner... More

Dined on the front patio outside under large maple tree with Mom who requires a gluten free and dairy free option. Only open from Memorial Day through Columbus Day per our waitress. Waitress was efficient, very pleasant and conveyed a real enthusiasm for the menu, ingredients and garden out back. Ate the Watermelon Gazpacho, BLT, Hummus Plate with fresh red... More

I ate at Sisters with my husband about two years ago and this time with a friend. It is still just as wonderful. Old Forge is in the foothills of the Adirondack Mts. and most people may not expect to find a restaurant open for lunch and dinner of this quality in its location although Old Forge also has Five...

Description
We are a fine dining bistro in an old Victorian building on the Main Street in Old Forge, NY.
Our menu changes regularly depending on what is in season and fresh and can be locally sourced. We strive to use as much local and organic food as we can find. Our food is creative and fun and made to order. Dress is casual so come as you are. Bring a sweater as half of our dining is outside on the back deck or the wrap around porch. We usually have live music on Friday and Saturday night. Give us a call to find out who is playing. Reservations welcome.
We are open Wednesday-Sunday for dinner from 5 to 10
and for a Mid-Day meal on Saturdays and Sundays from 11-3
From Memorial Day until June 26th, 2015
Then we are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner from June 27 until Labor Day.
Check back for Fall days and hours of operation
Come join us for something to eat or a drink at the bar.
Eat well ... Be Well
