Roseann Cane: In the few years since last visiting Lake George, I’d forgotten just how breathtakingly beautiful the Adirondacks are. The Holiday Inn Resort, home of the Lake George Dinner Theatre, overlooks the lake and boasts a glorious view.
This was my first visit to this theater, and I rarely go to dinner theater. The attentive, professional waitstaff couldn’t have been more pleasant. I enjoyed my generous portion of hearty vegetarian lasagna.
Gail Burns: My salmon was delicious and generous too. With salad, coffee, and cheesecake for dessert, the meal is substantial and a good value.
Roseann: And here’s another nice touch: patrons have the option of purchasing tickets for the show only—a convenience for vacationers who may have a limited time to enjoy all the activities that Lake George has to offer.
Gail: We think of the Berkshires as a tourist destination, but it does not have the Touristy feel that Lake George has. Lake George Dinner Theatre can run a single show for three months because most of their audience are “transients.”
Roseann: The place was packed on the Tuesday afternoon we attended. I don’t think it’s possible to get a bad table, and I got a kick out of watching the reactions of other audience members in a way that’s not possible in a conventional theater.
