My husband and I ate there last night. The cocktail menu is creative and kind of staggering. I had the Bittersweet. I also ordered a local microbrew - there is an extensive menu of these. We had a cheese plate - tasty. The mains are eclectic, imaginative combinations. And this experimentation works - both my and my husband's meals were... More

Our first visit to Liquids and Solids was so nice that we returned for dinner the next evening to sample more of their eclectic and creative menu. The menu here was the only one we saw in Lake Placid that was truly interesting. There is something here for everyone, provided you are willing to try something a bit out of... More

If You want decent food with unusual combinations but with AWFUL SERVICE then this is the place for you. I understood that we were there on a holiday weekend and had to wait 25 minutes to be seated, but having to wait about one hour to get served and that was for an order of bread, is just un- acceptable....

This is a very unique restaurant. Where else do you walk in and are asked by the hostess to look at the menu first? The menu is very eclectic and there may not be something on it for you, so it is a good idea to reconsider the kids for this one. However everything was great that we had and... More

Wow- I never expect much from Adirondack restaurants. Most are busy for a couple months only and often are staffed by disinterested teens. Liquids & Solids surpassed all expectations. It was comfortably homey, unpretentious and seemed to be catering to locals as much as anybody. They had Laguitas Sucks on tap which was perfect and my wife's cab-sav was above... More

Hands down one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. So much flavor and unique combinations. Pork belly was fabulous, Brussels sprouts Devine and blue cheese pudding with the meatballs are out of this world! Drinks were unique and flavorful as well! Great beer and craft cocktail menu!

I would highly recommend this eclectic restaurant to those who wish to have an extraordinary culinary experience. First of all, let's talk about the liquids. The cocktails are truly innovative concoctions. I ordered the gin & juice, which is made from Junipero, Becherovka, a Czech herbal liquor, cran molasses juice, and cherry bitters. It was a potent, yet balanced, not... More
