My only experience with Lanies ...
My only experience with Lanies is take out due to the pandemic. Even though it's a 20-25 minute drive, the food is still fresh and phenomenal! The staff is friendly and they go above and beyond to provide great food and service! I am super excited for them to open up for dine in so I can bring my family. Btw, I'm a big eater and the ... read more

We've ordered from here twice now in lock down. Food is good with good sized servings. The cranberry chicken salad sandwich is good but could be bigger for the price. In and out for pick up pretty easily.

ALWAYS excellent food. Been going there for over 12 years, at least 1 to 2 times a week. I think we’ve ordered everything on the menu at least once. What is the definition of perfect? This place. If you’re lucky to get Ryan, he makes the best margaritas between here in Mexico.

I love Lanies! The servers are really nice, the drinks are bangen, and the food is really good. The salad bar is Phenomenal (def recommend the home made Italian dressing) and the portions are ginormous. You're definitely going to get two, if not three meals out of each dinner. Come early though because they don't take recommendations ... read more

Lanies is a place that you can always count on for consistency and large portions! You never have to wonder if you are going to leave hungry after eating here. Its one of the only places left in the capital district that still has a classic salad bar. Most of the time when eating here I tend to get the unlimited salad bar which never ... read more

My husband and I have so many memories at Lanies. We have been coming here together, for the last 7ish years. Birthdays, graduations, date nights, and to celebrate the purchase of our home.

Food and service was excellent. Very large portions so you could likely split a meal if so inclined. Variety of menu choices including the usual Italian fare, steak, seafood, burgers and sandwiches. Slightly on the small size for venue space.

I got ribeye steak with pasta (pene). The steak was good but the pasta was not so great. It was very plain with some tomato sauce on top, the sauce didn't taste home made. I may give it another try, I don't know.
