If you're a true Diner lover then this is the place. We went for breakfast. Fast service, nice atmosphere, and good home cooked food. Just right and two of ate for $23.

This was our first visit but it will not be our last. Great breakfast at a very reasonable price. I had the sausage and gravy biscuit which came with home fries. It was probably the best I have ever had and this is from someone that was born and spent most of their life in the south. My wife had... More

Prospect Mountain Diner is a nice option if you're looking for an inexpensive and quick breakfast or lunch. There's not much to it but we enjoyed the food: I was impressed that my omelet was stuffed with cheese (many places skimp) and that it was fluffy and not at all greasy. The home fries and Eggs Benedict were also tasty.... More

Went for lunch. Thought the food was fine. Not much more to say. In my opinion the menu was not that big but had a reasonable selection. seemed like a standard diner menu. They had tabletop juke boxes with mostly music from the 60s, 70s, and early 80s.

The diner was busy, but we were seated quickly. The waitstaff was very nice and accommodating. Our breakfast came out quick and was delicious. We definitely will be going back next time we are in Lake George

This place was a nice stop to have a good, quick breakfast. We had the breakfast burrito, pancakes, scrambled eggs with chopped ham, bacon and sausage patties. Four meals and drinks for around $40.

Came here and ordered the Sunrise Special with bacon on the side and a cup of coffee. Service was a bit slow but breakfast came out in a decent amount of time. Pricing is also very reasonable .

The restaurant was built to give you that Rail car feeling. It was cute but kind of squishy. We sat 4 people at a round corner seat and felt like we were on top of each other. The food was priced reasonable and tasted pretty good. We had breakfast there and the service was pretty quick as was the time... More

We went there for lunch and sat at the counter. It was truly a diner experience, from the juke box to the sugar dispenser. We had hamburger and club house sandwich. The clubhouse was amazing with carved turkey and very flavorful. We enjoyed the lunch very much
