Stopped in here on our way back from VT. Interesting set-up for sure. The are located just off of a bike path, so locals can pedal here, which is nice, In the restaurant part, we sat at the bar. Only other customers were located outside on the patio. We didn’t try the food, but my wife got the soda sampler, and I have to say, their sodas were better than their beers. Of the 6 beers I tried none were better than okay. Bartender was friendly enough, though she was training someone and kept disappearing for long stretches. Store out front for growler fills, and an ice cream shop around the back as well with 300+ flavors of soft serve. Since the ice cream and the soda were better than the beer, it seems like a good place to take the kids and still be able to at least drinking something house brewed, even if it isn’t of the highest quality.
Stopped in here because Davidson brothers was closed for construction. An interesting building with an odd cave like entrance. Nothing special on the inside. Server was friendly albeit not particularly knowledgeable. The beer were sub par IMO and I did not sample the food. Prices were low.
It really is a shame that Coopers doesn’t have better beer because the food here is GREAT! Tucked away on Sagamore Street, Coopers Cave is a TV-free, relaxing place to grab a bite with friends. I’d only go for the food, not the beer.
Visited the "cave" on a trip to a school conference to Lake George. The spot was recommended by the conference’s director and I was happy that I made the visit. On the outside, it looks like an old warehouse, but the inside is smallish, but cozy. The service was fine and their food is fresh and tasty. I had the spiced sirloin and mashed potatoes, which was tasty, and my friend had the black bean burger which he loved too. The beer isn’t the best, a bit on the watery side, but they keep their beer fresh and you gotta give them credit for having 10 different beers on draft despite its small setting.They also sell growlers (12.75 each), so bonus points for that. Based on the food alone, this place is worth visiting if you are in Glen Falls.
Only visited the store, did not try the restaurant, which has a separate entrance. Anyway, the store had a variety of beers available in growler or bomber, in most cases both. Unfortunately, the beer I most wanted to take home was only available in growler at the time. The beer really isn’t much to write home about, but there was a pretty good selection of styles, and the prices on bombers were very good, from $3-7. It’s a bit off-topic, but the pops (or sodas in this part of the country, as I was reminded) were good to great. The only exception for sodas was the sugar-free root beer, which was really only lacking because of its lack of any sweetness at all, so kudos to Cooper’s for being brave enough to not use artificial sweeteners in that. So that’s definitely a reason to come here even if the beer is just average.

Located about a mile from Davidson Restaurant and Brewery. The location itself is nothing much to look at. They will give you 3 samples if you ask and also have a walk in cooler. Service is questionable at best and the person filling growlers will give you an attitude and a nasty look if you bring your own growlers. Unless you’re a completist, it’s best to skip this place.
Visited this place on a Saturday night. I was shocked when I got there. I expected the people and service to be very nice. When I got there, the 50 something lady was in a very crabby mood. She was extremely negative and condescending. I asked if they go to any festivals or anything and she snapped back at me saying "they are a waste of our time and money. Until they pay us like they do out West, we aren’t going to do them any more". I was very turned off by this and I almost walked out. After 2 of my 3 allotted 1 oz samples, I decided I’d buy a bottle of their 80 Schilling, which they did not have in bottles. It may have been a bad day, but she turned one tourist from CT off.
