We went last Friday Evening (June 28, 2014) with a large (17 people) group and got set up inside overlooking the lake. We agreed to do a 'buffet' style to make things simple and cost effective. All the food was fresh and cooked perfectly - chicken, green beans/carrots, mashed potato, spaghetti and salad w/ really good rolls. The waitress was... More

Had a very nice meal here. Menu wasn't the biggest, but there were enough options for most. They had a crazy good maple vinaigrette, which I was told was being taken off the menu by the new head chef. I have celiac, so need to eat gluten free. The server knew what I was talking about, so that made things... More

My boyfriend and I stay at Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort when we visit Lake Placid for skiing. Generations is the resort's restaurant. The best thing about the restaurant is slightly longer hours and a chilled atmosphere, which means it is convenient to have a relaxed meal and even read the news paper or a book. The service is good. The... More

We ordered breakfast - room service both Sat am and Sun am and it was VERY good. When we went to the restaurant for dinner on Sautrday night we expected that to be good as well. I ordered the shrimp linquini WITHOUT the linguini and the waiter delivered my dinner with the linguini. When I reminded him, I ordered it... More

I was very troubled to read your review of your dining experience with us. I believe that what you experienced was a new hire who I've spoken to since then about saying "you guys". I can imagine that being very annoying! I've also spoken to the kitchen about your entree experience and hope that this has rectified the situation. We... More

I've run a few different marathons and Generations had the best all-you-can-eat pasta dinner. There were indoor buffet style options and a chef cooking to order outside. I had an amazing pesto and sautéed vegetables with whole grain penne. While the service was good, the food was outstanding.

Food was average, more like something you would throw together after a days work than expect from a restaurant. The real problem was level of customer service. When being seated we requested the deck as it was a nice evening. We were told that there was a waiting list for the deck and a table would not be available for... More
