This is not your average Lake Placid place, but as long as you can get over the hipster snobishnish of the menu and staff, it is outstanding in both food and drink.

One of the most enjoyable and inventive meals my wife and I have enjoyed in a long time. We had the Sweetbreads McNuggets and the duck hearts and they were very delicate and delicious. Wonderful sauces and beautifully presented and the beer list went on for pages. It'll be our annual stop when we pass through Lake Placid.

There was an amazing selection of beer and wines..... Some of the food was a little out of my comfort zone but everything else was great

On their beer menu, you'll find only craft beers. Your biggest problem will be choosing one. I had a draft and it was great. As far as the food, the entrees aren't anything you're likely to find anywhere else. I had a ravioli and it was good. If you're looking for big portions, you'd better ask which ones they might...

You wont' find burgers and fries or hot wings on this "bar's" menu but you will find "Fried Duck Hearts." Since it is a bar/tavern, they also have a good selection of wines an exhausting list of beers and a long list of imaginative cocktails. You may find it difficult to determine just what exactly you will be getting from... More

This is more than a restaurant it is an experience. Do not be afraid to try some that might be out of your usual . Creative menus for liquids an solids . Both executed well. Cab be very crowded at time because locals love this place as much as travelers. Favorites were the brussels sprouts and the squash and gnocchi.... More

OK... this place definitely looks like a rustic bar from the outside. So glad a native recommended it at one of the best places in town and then tripadvisor reinforced that recommendation! We were totally wowed by everything we had: a lovely local goat cheese and a pork and pistachio terrine (with extraordinary delicacies (condiments); the onion soup; the spaghetti... More

Great casual atmosphere and very creative menu. Awesome drink choices and especially good for beer drinking snobs. The service was friendly and food better than it looks. This is not your average hamburger and fries place.

This is an updated review because I can't say enough good about this place. L&S is easily our favorite restaurant in Lake Placid. The constantly updated menu, the excellent selection of beer and always awesome mixed drinks makes every visit different and incredible. In the past, my only complaint (and it was a minor one) was service could be slow... More

We went there to celebrate a birthday and chose the 4 course food and beer pairing. The food was upscale comfort food, befitting the well matched, interesting beer choices. We wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. The menu was full of many eye-catching selections that we would like to try on future visits. This is great destination for beer snobs... More
