What's happening to this popular, seasonal restaurant after 45 years?
A longtime Lake George village restaurant, popular for its burgers, hot dogs, and sweet treats, just announced a major change after 45 years in business and it took some people by surprise.
In a Facebook post from May 13th, the owners of the A&W Restaurant at 2208 Route 9 in Lake George told their loyal customers that after decades of running one of the more popular seasonal spots in the Adirondacks, it's time to move on.
"We've gone to Lake George every summer for the last 30 years and the Lake George A&W is our favorite place! We go there nearly every day of our visit. I wish you as much happiness in your future as you have given us! I also hope the new owners keep the pomegranate ice cream - my favorite and my granddaughters, too!"
Will they be open this year?
It's unclear who the new owners are, but while the Madden family enjoys the retired life, the restaurant will be open this summer!
