Doc's Restaurant: For When You Want Every Little Detail Taken Care Of
Doc's Restaurant at the Park Theater is a highly rated restaurant with favorable reviews gushing about the food bursting with flavor, the impressive presentation, and the attentive staff. Patio dining and drink specials are offered in the summer, and you can expect a modern take on classic dishes all year round.
Entree favorites includes their legendary lobster roll served on a buttery brioche roll and the "Remedy" burger, which is a blend of certified Angus chuck, short rib, and sirloin. There are also excellent fish and chicken options, and vegetarian or vegan meals can be served upon request. Beverage options are also top notch here, with fun cocktails, craft beer, and an extensive wine list.
Morgan & Co. Restaurant: For the Always-Fresh Menu & Gourmet Dining Experience
Global cuisine and American comfort food come together at the dynamic Morgan & Co., run by a food-passionate husband-and-wife team. Try flavors of Italy, France, Morocco, and tastes from here in America like Carolina barbecue. They also have a large selection of wine, cocktails, and beer, and they offer brunch on Sundays.
Morgan & Co. is situated in a 19th-century historic mansion formerly known as the McEchron House. The location lends to a fabulous vintage dining atmosphere (perfect for a romantic dinner!), and they also offer takeout and delivery.
The Grateful Den: For the Bar Food You Crave, the Rotating Draft Beer & the Live Music
The Grateful Den is a Glens Falls bar staple known for showcasing the talent of local musicians - and more than just the Grateful Dead-style tunes! (During the pandemic they have been live streaming performances on Facebook.) But it's the food and the beer choices you'll keep coming back for.
Pair a local brew like June Farms Pilsner from Saranac Brewery with crazy good comfort food like beer mac and cheese, fried pickles, mini tacos, or loaded fries.
Fenimore's Pub: For the Mouthwatering Food & Classy, Relaxed Environment
Your neighborhood pub Fenimore's is located inside the Queensbury Hotel, within walking distance of the quaint shops and City Park in downtown Glens Falls. Fenimore's serves upscale pub-style fare for lunch and dinner daily with flavor-packed meals for lunch like a pastrami sandwich (your choice hot or cold), and equally-as-tempting dinner options like the pan-smoked mussels with a garlic cream sauce.
In favorable weather guests can enjoy their meal in the courtyard or on the patio, where live music is performed in the summer.
Bonus! Park 26: for the Chef-Inspired Meals & Elegant Atmosphere
We would be remiss not to give a shout out to Fenimore's counterpart, Park 26, also located inside the historic Queensbury Hotel. You can expect locally-inspired cuisine and a fine dining experience on par with Morgan & Co. The patio overlooks City Park, and the name of the restaurant is not a coincidence - it's named for the the year the Queensbury Hotel opened (1926) and for its location across from the park.
If you browse reviews of Park 26 you'll find Chef Colin Miner, 2020 Rising Star Chef competitor at the Wine & Dine for the Arts Festival, is touted as a passionate professional who is happy to speak to folks about the decisions behind the menu choices. Come experience his creations for yourself! Park 26 is open for breakfast daily, and for lunch and dinner Thursday to Sunday.
