Located on Main Street in Lake Placid. This restaurant has mediocre food at best. The menu is limited with only 1 special at dinner. The waitstaff could do a much better. There are several other restaurants in Lake Placid....so choose one of them instead.

We were in town for a friend's wedding and wanted to just have a relaxing lunch before the ceremony. We chose Generations because of the outdoor seating, and we are glad we did. It was very cool that they had a rooftop herb garden. The four of us tried a variety of drinks: the hard lemonade, margaritas, beer, and a... More

Sitting outside on their deck was a good decision. There were a few more people outside than inside, which was pretty empty. We both had the day's specials which was a pasta with chorizo, peppers, onions, asparagus, tomatoes and it was quite good. It came with whole wheat penne and I asked if I could have regular linguine instead and... More

We decided to go here while waiting for a family member during the marathon. Rude hostess. Our waiter was pleasant, but not very good at his job. Both tables around us that had been seated 20 minutes after us, were served their food well before we were. We witnessed one waitress pet a dog and then grab food off a... More

We arrived at 7:30 and we're promptly seated. As I write this it is 8:10 and we've yet to see our waiter. Tables are uncleared and a couple that came in well after us got its food. This service is unacceptable and I will not return nor send anyone their way.

Service was good, waiter was attentive and kept checking on us and refilling our water. However, food took too long to come out. If maybe there was bread they offered, it would somehow appease our hunger. Food was just ok, nothing to rave about but nothing to complain about either.

We went to Lake Placid for the very first time. We had vouchers for complimentary breakfast for two at the Generations restaurant adjacent to Golden Arrow Resort where we were staying. First off, we sat at a table with a beautiful view. It was so peaceful starting the day off viewing the beauty of Creation. On the first morning, we... More
