The Water’s Edge Marina on Lake George has been family owned and operated for over 44 years. This hidden gem next to the bridge in Bolton Landing offers local favorites from their kitchen, fully equipped cottages with fireplaces and sun-decks, a pool, and a new fleet of rental boats.
This seasonal spot was opened in 1971 by the Waters family, and is now in its third generation of fast, friendly service.
Water’s Edge is open for breakfast and lunch during the season, and offers a great view from their deck. If you are arriving by boat, friendly deck hands can help guide you in for gas, firewood, ice, or something from the deli. Order your food at the front counter as it’s made à la minute. A variety of beverages, including sodas, beers, wines and juices are available as well as salads.
They’re especially known for the deviled eggs, made by “Aunt Debbie” (“Debiled eggs” to those in the know). Another local favorite are the “Dock Dogs” a hot dog with mustard, onion and their own tasty secret meat sauce.
I tried several creations, but passed on the breakfast sandwich (made all day long for the late risers) and chose instead “The Blonde Bombshell”. It included warm, thinly sliced Buffalo-style chicken, pepperoni, melted provolone, and blue cheese served on a toasted hard roll. It paired well with some fresh cut watermelon from the deli case. “The Handy Man” has big boy status. It’s a massive sandwich on a hoagie featuring two beef patties, topped with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mustard and mayo.
Both are delicious – a stop at The Water’s Edge, whether on foot or by boat, it’s worth the trip.
