It all started with a trip to Lake George for my half marathon. Lake Georges’ first ever event of that kind. The race was taking place early Saturday morning. And when I woke the morning of the race there was one thing going through my mind. I am sure you knew what was racing through my mind…STEAK!
Before the trip, Andrew had told me of Adirondack Pub & Brewery, a popular place on Canada Street. All that mattered to me was that they had steak…’cause after 13.1 miles, you are jonzing for it.
It wasn’t tourist season, so Adirondack, along with the rest of the town, was pretty empty. It had a…well…Adirondack feel to it. It had the looks of a warm and cozy log cabin. Not only on the outside, but the inside as well.
But now for the real deal. We sat down for a little while pondering what to get. Andrew got the bacon rap filet mignon. This was a special for the night. Rob got the classic, yet beautiful looking, golden brown, fish & chips. I went with the 24 oz prime rib. I just had to. Medium rare of course. Our beautiful waitress came and took our orders and we went about our business being hungry.
Now the details. The steak was great and it came with steak fries and a soup. I
asked for medium rare and got it just as asked. It was one of those steaks that you bite into that just melts in your mouth. Amazing. Perfectly seasoned as well. Not one of those steaks where you can’t actually taste the juices and the flavor of the meat. After about ten minutes, this thing was gone…accept for small pieces of fat. The fries were spectacular might I add. Something new to all of us were those fries. Beer battered fries. Think of a nice crust, much like fish & chips.
Another cool part of this place is that it’s a brewery. What did you think the word “brewery” in the name meant? We all tried one of their popular brews, the Bear Naked Ale. It was light and refreshing with a bit of a fruity taste to it. More versions are available. The brewery also gives tours.

I was very happy with my meal. Food dudes will be back for sure.
