Highly Recommend Amado When in Tupper Lake
Five of us ordered dinners at Amado to take back to our motel. My dinner was the walnut encrusted mahi mahi with pesto inguine and a side salad. The mahi mahi was cooked perfectly with the mahi mahi tender and moist, the pesto linquine was...the perfect combination of garlic and pine kernels, and the salad fresh and crisp. I also ... read more

WOW!  This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the Northwood Cabins for our Anniversary dinner and we couldn't be happier.  They created an outdoor dining space that was remarkable.  The service, by the owners daughter was very good.  But where they shined most was the food.  The New England Clam chowder made with smoked whit ... read more

Dinner was delicious. Such a nice setup for outdoor dining. Some places just put a few tables outside and there you go. But here they did a great job creating an outdoor "dining room" all the heaters kept us pretty warm and created ambiance. Our waitress was very friendly and the chef/owner even came by to chat. We enjoyed our visit ... read more

Both food and service were wonderful as always! Great new outdoor seating with heaters, and 3 large private dining "pods/sheds" with climate control and music. Chef and owner popped in to ask how everything was, which was nice. One of our favorite restaurants in the tri lakes area!
