Food quality is average with a small size. Don't be surprised if you don't feel full. Definitely over priced. Won't go back.

We always visit this restaurant when we go to Lake George. We love the food here. We always try other places to eat, but this place is where we go to first when we get there. The prices are fair and the food is amazing.

the service and atmosphere were bad at this place. we ordered an appy and they plunked our dinners on the table 2 minutes later shoving the appetizer aside. never once did the waitress come to check on us and the cook just kept glaring at the customers instead of straightening out his help. this was the most uncomfortable dining experience...

Being from Long Island, we are spoiled with great bagels, pizza, and Greek food. We were disappointed by the food here. The lavash bread was disappointing considering it is all over the menu. The Greek salad was so bland. The gyro meat was chopped so fine that it was the consistency of a Philly cheese steak. The falafel was over... More

We ordered the lavash with yogurt sauce, the falafel sandwich, the lamb gyro, and baklava for dessert. The freshness and softness of the lavash was spot on, the yogurt sauce was tangy, salty, and herby, and out falafel and gyro sandwiches were EXCELLENT (great sauce, falafel aromatic and crisp, fresh made pita, filling). The baklava was not what I expected.... More

The food was good and fresh. The special bread was baked on the premises immediately before serving which was delicious. The prices are OK for the touristic expensive part of New York. While the portions were less than most American restaurants, they were reasonable.
