Been going for year. Returned after moving away, and found mostly the place as remembered. Food was good, but room for improvement. The service was good, and the decor was classic lake George. If you want local flavor and avoid the chains this is a great place.

The food here was outstanding, as always. The family that owns and runs it are so, so sweet and personable. We love the atmosphere. It is cool and crisp outside and this place is tucked back into a wooded area. Very romantic. Wish we could visit more often! Lake George is a stunningly beautiful place and The Ridge Terrace is...

I have been eating at the Ridge Terrace since I was a child, first with my grand parents, then my parents and now with my family and grand children. It is a must stop for dinner while at Lake George or the visit would not be complete. I recommend the veal parmigiana, the prime rib and any of the seafood... More

We have been customers of The Ridge Terrace for the last 3 years when we started coming back to the area. I remember coming to this restaurant back in the 70's and 80's with my parents and they always enjoyed it. The menu definitely has a different flare and has some signature dishes. I typically enjoyed the escargot but never... More

Bring your appetite to this place and be prepared to fill all the empty air pockets in the tummy. Best steaks in the area. Fast service, and ambience goes together with warm hospitality. You won't be disappointed.

Oh the food here was really good! Husband had steak, done just the way he likes it. I had a crab dish that was very good. They have a relish tray they bring out that had cole slaw, potato salad and a kidney bean salad on it that was delicious.

High mark-up on alcohol, like every where. Prices, food quality and atmosphere is equal to what you get. I would not go out of my way to go here, but if you lived close I would recommend you try it.

Amazing Food! I had the Melted Havarti and raspberry sauce appetizer which was delicious and then the Fliet Mignon Cordon Bleu for my entree. Both were spectacular. In addition to bringing you bread before your meal, they also bring you assorted salads (pasta salad, bean salad, potato salad.) These were fantastic as well. I would highly recommend this place to... More

Ridge Terrace is my favorite Lake George Restaurant although it is technically located in Queensbury. The drinks, the food, the service and atmosphere is simply fantastic. We had dinner with friends and all our entrees were delicious. The Veal Richard and New York Strip were great. Another veal dish, I can't remember which one, was great. Drinks were good and... More

Ridge terrace is a typical Adirondack atmosphere. The food is fairly one dimensional. I had shrimp and scallops over pasta covered with a thick tomato sauce that overpowered the seafood. It seems most items on the menu offer either tomato sauce or cream sauce.
