Food scene

This local favorite has an amazing array of wines and a delicious menu. Great atmosphere, great service and great eats! Not a place to bring the kids, for that, try Basil & Wicks or Beck's Tavern.

Great little spot! The menu is small and features German cuisine. The food is delicious, the service is good, the beer and drink list is extensive, and the interior is cozy. They also offer live music in the Yurt. Stop by and check it out.

This is truly a family favorite. My daughter and I once went in for lunch and dinner on the same day! Great burgers, salads, sandwiches offered up in a beautiful old victorian building with oodles of charm. The service is fantastic and the owner is often there to keep everything running smoothly. They serve up great sundaes at the bar or grab a table or booth, the whole family will love it.

What this place lacks in atmosphere it makes up for with great service and food at very reasonable prices. We go for breakfast and are never disappointed.

Located in the quiet hamlet of Olmstedville, NY, The Owl at Twilight brings approachable fine cuisine to the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The menu, while focusing mostly on Latin American Cuisine, blends many flavors and regions. Enjoy dinner in the comfortable dining room next to the fireplace or outside in our lovely screened in porch. The quaint bar is perfect too for an after dinner drink or some appetizers. Love dining in their screened in porch overlooking their organic gardens.

Basil & Wick's is the place to eat after a long day on the mountain. From award-winning chili, to fried calamari and cheese fondue, you can order a snack or a full meal from their diverse bar menu. Sports fans will not miss a game - our three 52" HD televisions will keep you up to the minute on all the action. A great family restaurant, go early or late to avoid the crowds.

This restaurant is a bit far from us, but we often make the trip for some of the best pizza and wings you can find. If you like cauliflower crust, you would swear theirs was made with regular crust.

Try Izzy's for the most sumptuous breakfast sandwiches you can find. Service is excellent, but go early, they get super busy, espcially on the summer weekends. For lunch, try the 46ers, my personal favorite.

This one is a bit of a drive from us (1 hr 15 min) but worth it. Visit Ausable Chasm for an assortment of adventures you will not find at any other single location in the Adirondacks.
