Our regionally acclaimed Adirondack Inn captures the ambiance of the 19th century while specializing in sophisticated 21st century cuisine and service. Our Chef’s imaginative New-American cuisine is exquisitely prepared and includes entree specials created daily and irresistible international desserts. Complement your selections with wine from our Grand Spectator award-winning collection.

Your stay with us would not be complete without a romantic meal in the simple yet elegant setting of our dining room at the Inn. Country ambiance in an Adirondack setting sets the mood as the sun dips low outside. The dining room’s original tin ceiling and burnished woodwork is set aglow by our wood burning fireplace. The meal, always of the freshest ingredients, is creatively composed and professionally served. The sommelier is available for advice on a wine selection, and the unhurried pace will allow you to relax and truly enjoy this fine Adirondack dining experience that is the restaurant at Friends Lake Inn.

We have several dining rooms:

  • Our Lakeview Breakfast Room is a sunny room with a beautiful view of the lake.
    Open 8:00am – 10:30am daily.
  • The Main Dining Room is the Inn’s original dining room, complete with burnished woodwork, a brick fireplace, and painted tin ceiling.
    *All parties of five or larger require a credit card at the time of booking. There is a $25.00 per person fee for a party cancelled after 4:00 pm on the day of the reservation. A standard 18% gratuity will be added to parties of five or more. 
  • Adjacent to our lounge, the private Parlor has a lovely brick fireplace and a cozy ambiance. The glow of candlelight enhances its intimate atmosphere.
  • Finally, our private Wine Cellar Dining Room accommodates parties of 8 to 14 at one large dining table. Comfortable Mission-style furniture and an antler chandelier grace this space, which guests enter after passing by a glass-enclosed portion of the cellar, housing a portion of the Inn’s extensive wine collection.
    *A credit card is required at the time of booking. There is a $25.00 per person fee for a party cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation. All Wine Cellar Reservations require an $85.00 per person minimum total bill. If under, a service fee of the difference will be applied.


Wine Dinners
