The Algonquin

Type: American Grub
Location: 4770 Lakeshore Dr., Bolton Landing, NY, 12814

The Algonquin is an old standby. It's neither great, nor bad, but it's accessible by car or boat, and there aren't too many restaurants around, without going all the way down to Lake George Village, or all the way up to the top of the lake, so people keep going there. It's got mostly seafood and pub grub.

Even when you stay at The Sagamore, which is really the only place to stay at Bolton Landing, you need to drive out of town for dinner (The Sagamore has restaurants, but go elsewhere). There is a really nice greasy-spoon diner within a half-mile walk -- back over the bridge, and about three blocks down into town. I hate to admit it, but I love shit like bacon, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, French toast, waffles, beignets, and all the fixin's. Those can be had for around $4 a person.

For fancier stuff, go down to Lake George Village.
