First visit, all good. Casual, and comfortable, with a large window that faces Lake George. Not too busy. Service was prompt and efficient. Food (grilled salmon) was well prepared, and a good value. Worth a try!

We had a nice family meal. My 4 year old does not eat gluten or dairy and the server was very accommodating/understanding. It was a nice quiet dinner with well prepared food.

The food for the brunch was plentiful and served family style but it took a long time to come to the table and everything was overcooked and dry. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was a dated dining space.

Directions here are a challenge. Call the restaurant for gps friendly address. Appetizers were decent, and if you stop there you’re OK.

The peach salad came with no peaches. And when provided, were canned, cold, grilled peaches. This time of year, diners would expect a fresh grilled peach.

The grilled meatloaf was not moist, and not cut to order. Primarily the meals were short on flavor.

By and large and good looking menu, but that’s where it primarily ends.

This is not your 4-5 star lake front experience. Maybe while staying there for a snack.

It was our first dinner out in Lake George.Our server was very nice did everything she could to make our dining experience wonderful.However, food coming out was a little slow. 2 had pork Milanese need to be pounded out a little more but seasoned very nicely. 2 people had the grilled meat loaf that they loved. Their soup of the day was very tasty. And the short rib was tasty as well!

Food was excellent but I wish we had been warned about the event being held. Dinner was served downstairs with music thumping above. No real view. Atmosphere and rude customers next to us were pretty awful, but the staff were kind and the food was delicious.

Food was okay, though inconsistent even among each plate. Service was friendly but very slow. Reservations were only available at 5pm and 730 but no one was there so why was there no other reservation time? Pictures also were a bit deceiving.

The View had just that an amazing view. Service was good. I prefer to have my food spaced out more however our appetizer, soup/salad came out at the same time. Mine and my husband entrees were very good. My kids didn’t like there food. Overly salty. Waited to pay the check for a while because they only had 1 computer.

I HAD A ON-BONE RIB EYE STEAK...IT WAS TERRIBLE. FULL OF GRISTLE AND THE MEAT WAS TOUGH AND UNDER-COOKED.

ON THE OTHER HAND, MY GIRLFRIEND HAD PORK AND IT WAS DELISIOUS.

NICE ATMOSPHERE AND GOOD SERVICE.

The food was very good. We would have liked more traditional American cuisine. Most of the menu had an Latin-Asian infusion. We definitely are coming back. The staff is excellent!

I just want to thank everyone for helping make my moms Mother’s Day an amazing one! I put in a request for a table with a nice view for our Mother’s Day Reservation and the staff had us in a beautiful little room with an amazing view! I couldn’t have asked for anything better! We will be back next year!

We used to dine several times at this place last year and found it was the best restaurant around. But during our first visit of this season, we were quite disappointed. The food didn't match our expectations - the meat was lukewarm, the sides not well balanced and the salad kind of thrown carelessly on the plate. The staff was friendly, but not well trained, way too casual in their manners and poorly dressed given that this is an award-winning restaurant. Service was slow even though we were the only customers that night, and the noise level coming from the bar where the staff was hanging out was disturbing. Also to note: no rolls or fresh bread are served anymore when you're waiting for your food. I hope things are going to improve soon, otherwise they're not going to see as much of us this season.

Big portions, which some folks will enjoy. My husband found his dish, the seafood pot pie, to be quite bland.
No sparkling water of any kind on the menu. We didn't want to take a chance on trying their coffee.

Nice location w/lake view.
Pleasant wait staff, et al.

My 16 oz steak was 15 oz of grizzle. When the waitress asked how it was I said It was full of grizzle!!! She said "oh sorry" and handed me the check.
The tomato basil soup was good but no class at all at this restaurant

Phenomenal early birthday dinner tonight ! Fantastic service with incredible views of the lake. The ribeye steak was perfectly seasoned and prepared medium rare, served with a complimentary salad with house made dressing . All was delicious, including the seafood fritters and the Clam & Crab Puttanesca 😋 So stuffed!

The View is a delightful restaurant with a lovely perch at Dunham's Bay. Allie was our charming server on the early Sunday afternoon that we stopped in for dinner. She cheerful attended to our needs and the other two tables seated. We beat the evening crowd and thereby scored a window table as the daylight waned. A bowl of the seasonal pumpkin curry soup, salads, and plates of a generously-sized pork schnitzel and tastefully-delicious grilled mahi-mahi were well-prepared and with appropriate accompaniments. We even saved room for a warm, spiced-bread-pudding-with-cranberries dessert and lingered over our drinks. One can only imagine how busy they must be during the height of the summer season. On a late October day we felt privileged to have the place almost to ourselves. A new nearby-resident discount may bring in more locals, but we were thrilled with our drive up from Albany for our first but certainly not last visit!

Food was very good and creative. Would have preferred a table in the main room with the fireplace...we were in a room by ourselves, but the bay view was spectacular!
