The food was great! The service was good but a little pricey. I guess you are paying for the views...which are amazing.

This place has a very basic menu, food is mediocre, service is substandard. The view of the lake is great.

Nice outside place to enjoy a sandwich with a view it is very casual and refillable soda's are a must with kids.

Food isn't the greatest, waitstaff aren't the best but I'm on vacation when I'm there. I stay at fort William Henry and this is a stones throw away. Everything is good enough and the views are outstanding, by far the best in the village. Always look forward to coming down the hill and going here.

While sightseeing one late summer afternoon, we stopped in to the Lookout Cafe for dinner. The second floor open balcony seating was great with a nice view of the lake. Being near the end of season the menu was limited. There was fast food fare which was ok with us. We ordered burgers, fries, fish sandwich, sodas and beer. As... More

We went to the Lookout Cafe for dinner on our last night in Lake George. We sat and waited 30 minutes for someone to stop over at our table. The restaurant was not even 25% occupied. Our waiter final took our order. Since we had a 2 and 3 year old with us, we asked for him to bring their... More

We enjoyed the lunch we had here after visiting the fort. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food - we only had sandwiches - was excellent. Sitting under an awning in the sun with a beer and that view up the lake - what's not to like?

This place is close to the Fort , and close to Ft William Henry Hotel, in fact I think it is owned by the Hotel. The location is the closest to the Lake George Steam ship ....all quick / fast food type stuff. Nothing to brag about. I wish it where a little better and we would probably hit it... More

We wanted a quick lunch and headed to lookout Cafe. We had three young teens with us. We were seated quickly and the waiter seemed nice at first. All we ordered were three appetizers and fish and chips. The waiter took our order and disappeared for about 45 minutes. When we asked him about the food, he apologized and said... More
