They did an amazing job for Thanksgiving. All the food was spectacular. Delicious and abundant. We were very very pleasantly surprised. Loved it! Really enjoyed the live entertainment as well. It was perfect background music. Very entertaining yet not too loud so that it overpowered our conversations. Very well done! Will most likely be back next year!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We came because their offerings at the annual Taste of the Adirondacks food festival in Glens Falls were head and shoulders above other purveyors. We were not disappointed. Turkey of course. But also beef,an exceptional pork roast and great ham. Plus a bountiful dessert table. We will be back,

We generally spend a week in Lake George in June and again in September. Giovanna's was usually a good and reliable stop for dinner. Our diner there recently was beyond awful. Let's start with the service. Let's not, on the other hand, since there was none. Apparently, our waitstaff took our order and then went on an extended break. The... More

Visited for Restaurant week. Ambiance, price and maitre' d was awesome. Food was horrible. If you're not a local or someone that appreciates good food this is not the place to visit.

Just had breakfast here yesterday morning 9/5/2016, while visiting lake George. My wife had the lakeside breakfast while I had a side of home fries and sausage with an orange juice.
