Wonderful menu
Fried oyster appetizer was soggy/bland.
Brussel sprouts were fabulous as was calamari-
Monkfish and scallop dinners were delicious-beautifully presented and ample.
Fish tacos were soggy as well, as if tortilla was never heated.
Service was excellent as well

Dining outside was very pleasant except the chairs could have been more comfortable. Salmon and shrimp and grits were excellent dinner choices.

I have been told outdoor tables were only for four people so I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at an outdoor table for six

First time there and we had some oysters (super clean), monk fish, and shrimp and grits. My wife ordered the grits as I don’t really care for them but I did give hers a try and I don’t know about everywhere else but these were delicious. Really enjoyed having top notch service.

Service was amazing. Too cold to do outdoor dining that night but we basically had a section to ourselves, they were very accommodating. Food was outstanding. Steamed mussels appetizer special and shrimp and grits entree... sooo comforting. And the creme brûlée was perfect! Cant wait to come back.

This restuarant has a big service problem- water glasses not filled - plates not removed - follow up not remotely thought about - servers are there but not attentive at all - and the owner ignores as she hides behind the bar - then on top of that we had to wait 40 minutes for our entree after our appetizers

Traveling to area. 30 lake highly recommended. Outdoor dining is a public walkway but understandable with current Covid restrictions. Service slow as our waitress responsible for indoor and outdoor table. An eclectic menu ranging from fish nachos to burgers and surf and turf.
Fish nachos highlight of meal, just wish leave chopped tomatoes off.
Overall I would give 3.5 rating. Good a 4 but service and value a 3

Sat outside with another couple on a beautiful night. Had a great bottle of wine, apps
and a great meal. Service by one of the owners two sons was excellent & friendly.
What more can you ask for on a night out for dinner. Highly recommend!!

We’ve been to all of the incarnations of this restaurant, but our first trip to the 30 Lake version is likely our last. Which is a shame, because the food was excellent.

My expectation of service is not the same as pre-Covid, but our service was still unacceptable — as much for the problems as it was for how they (weren’t) handled.

Every single phase was slow — from seating to first visit from our waiter to the excruciating 25 mins after our app plates were cleared until our entrees were served (after asking two different employees to find our food — or our waiter!)

We thought when the waiter came out and said “oh my gosh, you haven’t received your apps yet?” meant that the rest of the night would go well — but he was no where to be found during our wait for our entrees. One employee apologized and said the kitchen was backed up (there were only two other tables of people at that point), but the kicker was when the waiter finally showed up, and proceeded to make excuses for the kitchen and his absence — all way holding our food in his hands — not even placing them in front of us!

You’d think a manager would have appeared at some point to at least apologize. The best we got was an offer for free dessert from the waiter. No thanks. For one, after being there for 2 hours, we didn’t want to wait another 25 minutes for the next course.

Too bad. Food was great.

(Thank goodness they didn’t enforce the rule for a 1.5 hour maximum time at the table)

Everything was enjoyable. Except the seating. We sat outdoors. The chairs were most uncomfortable, to the point it distracted from the rest of the (otherwise good) experience.

Because of Covid we ate outdoors in the front of the restaurant which is on a main street so it was a bit noisy, but not a problem as that is what we requested. Food was good, service excellent. Waiter was patient with us trying different wines until we found the perfect one.

We had a reservation for 2 at 530pm on a Saturday. We were seated promptly at an outdoor table per our request. The server was very friendly and very prompt. We had wine and a Manhattan, shrimp cocktail and the caprese salad special to start - all delicious. Spouse had salmon entree while I had scallops - absolute perfection for both dishes. Finished with an espresso and chocolate coconut ice cream for dessert (HEAVEN). The server was absolutely wonderful, attentive but not overly so and great timing on everything. Absolutely wonderful experience

Limited menu due to coronavirus cutbacks but we were able to find something we liked.
Raw oysters were great.
Outdoor seating was too hot on this 90 degree day so we sat inside. Good social distancing being practiced
Quite a few non seafood entrees too. I think this is the only real seafood restaurant in Saratoga

Very good - food, cocktail, certified draft beer, service. 'Had a very nice Old Fashioned (perfect blend for someone who doesn't like super-boozy drinks), hubby was very happy with his Peroni on tap. 'Shared the chilled lobster (cooked properly, very good flavor) and the linguine with clams (lots of clams, many in the shells, really good sauce). We met the owner who was very personable and pleasant. Keep up the good work - we'll be back!

Food is really good and pretty good service although I did ask the hostess is there was valet parking and she had no clue. This place has great potential the only real problem is the parking, it's a absolute nightmare!
