Five Essential Lake George Dining Spots
During the tourist season, Lake George offers a bounty of dining options for visitors and locals alike, covering a wide range of cuisines and price points. From BBQ to seafood to Indian fare, Lake George Village has it all. When you’re not enjoying the quality and convenience of the dining options here at the Beach Bar & Cafe at Scotty’s Lake George Resort, there are other great places to try right outside the resort grounds.
One of the best parts of a Lake George vacation is dining on great food with family and friends. So after boating on the lake or lounging under the sun at Million Dollar Beach, enjoy tasty meals at some of these can’t-miss Lake George dining spots:
(59 Iroquois Street, 518-668-4411, pizzajerks.com)
Tucked away just off the main drag next to the Price Chopper supermarket, Pizza Jerks has quickly become the go-to option for delicious slices, pies, Stromboli and more. They also serve a fine selection of craft beers. The restaurant has a laid-back, hippie/rasta vibe, so you may even be lucky enough to catch some Bob Marley on the radio there while you enjoy your meal.
The Barnsider Smokehouse BBQ
(2112 U.S. 9, 518-668-5268, barnsider.com)
The Adirondack region rarely shies away from meat consumption, and the Barnsider is a relatively new staple for area carnivores. From the down-home rustic ambiance of the building to the mouth-watering assortment of smoked and sauced meats, you’ll leave the place feeling satisfied. If you can’t decide, try one of their combo platters, including favorites like ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket.
(164 Canada Street, 518-685-3116, www.facebook.com/pages/Salt-Water-Cowboy/448271941932095)
You may not have a clear path to the ocean from Lake George, but you can still enjoy excellent seafood in a casual setting while you’re here. Saltwater Cowboy is right in the heart of the Canada Street strip, and you’ll be happy you stopped in. Choose from a wide array of chowders, fried seafood favorites, lobster rolls and more. The cup of soup and half lobster roll combo is lunchtime perfection.
Spice Kabob & Gyro
(2096 State Route 9, 518-685-5065, facebook.com/SpiceGrillLG)
As gyro fans know, not all gyros are created equal. Whether you are a newbie or a gyro connoisseur, you will be blown away by the deliciousness of the creations made here. The sauce is especially incredible and a little different from the standard tzatziki you may be accustomed to. The other items on the extensive menu are just as delightful.
(429 Canada Street, 518-668-2665, marioslakegeorge.com)
For a taste of Old-World, sit-down Italian dining, Mario’s is the place in Lake George Village. This is where you go when you want a heaping plate of chicken parm, meatballs like grandma used to make and a generous helping of pasta on the side. Visitors from the Tri-State area will feel especially at home here surrounded by a litany of saucy favorites.
