Nice, friendly spot for a fine craft beer!

When traveling, I always enjoy sampling the selections at the local craft brewery. I've heard much about this place and even seen their beer on the shelves at my grocer, but never ventured to try it until now. Their famous Ubu beer was quite satisfying as was their IPA on tap.

The first floor is small and feels cramped. The second floor looked better, but I didn't know about until just before we left. I had the IPA, and it was okay. Not sure I would go back.

Went here twice in this trip. Once solo once with family. Good selection on menu. Some gluten free items. Restaurant is upstairs with two different levels. Actually 3 if you count the bar on street level. Looks like it was a church at one point. Very quaint. Service was quick on my solo visit and a bit slower on the... More

Ubuman, Owner at Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, responded to this review

Hello - thanks for your kind review of the Pub, and for your business. I will reiterate to our hostesses the proper manner of seating all guests, whether a party of one or of twelve. They certainly are not supposed to suggest singles sit at the bar. And we DO have an elevator so all three floors are handicap accessible.... More

Went here with a huge group of parents and kids and they found seating for all of us. The waiter we had was great. The kids did not get their food the same time as the adults which make it a bit difficult. But all in all a good experience

Best place we ate at in Placid during our few days. Good service and very good food, not just "pub food". Right next to the Hampton. Family friendly.

Last week we stayed in Lake Placid for a 4 day holiday getaway. And always need to stop in for lunch or dinner and few beers. This place never disappoints. This time went for dinner. it was busy so we had a 45min wait. the hostesses are great and the servers are always friendly and helpful when determining beer selection

We visited the Brewery in December 2015 - I didn't really expect such a great meal at a pub/brewery. I was treated to a delicious meal - a salad with maple infused cheddar which I am still dreaming about! The pub was quite full when we arrived but we easily found a space at the bar for a drink on...

Went with my boyfriend. Definitely family friendly. We were seated near the kids play area, which I didn't really care for. We probably could have asked to be seated elsewhere, but they were packed. Beer is great. A lot of help by staff to learn about the beers and pick which ones we would like. Food wasn't out of this... More

Hello - thanks for your nice words about the Pub. We will remind our hostess to make sure to ask people if they are happy with where they are seated. You are correct in assuming that we would have seated you elsewhere as we want to seat people where they are comfortable. Glad to hear our staff was helpful with... More

I have been coming here since this was PJ O'Neils. Great atmosphere and beer,, the draft beers are brewed in house. Good place for lunch or dinner, the food and service is always top notch. Never disappointed.

Great beer, great atmosphere, food needs work. Daughter ordered burger, it was fabulous. Second daughter ordered French Onion soup that had almost no flavor. My wife had a pizza with pear. I don't know why she did that, but it sounded terrible on the menu but was much worse in person. I had one of their specialties, a spicy fish... More
