The food was amazing. I had beets with fennel & locally made goat cheese + quinoa. My husband had the roasted butternut squash ravioli. There was a wide selection of beers on draught & in bottles plus interesting cocktails. The service was friendly & attentive. We got there when it opened & it filled up quickly, mostly with local folks... More

We had a celebratory meal here and wow. It was fantastic. We will definitely be back. The drinks were excellent. My wife had a delicious valen doula (sp?) cocktail and I an excellent Pinot noir. For the meal, we shared a lamb rilette, Brussels sprout bread pudding, partridge and duck breasts. All were exceptional. Our waitress was gentle and very... More

This place does not look like much from the outside but the food is good, and creative. They weren't many vegetarian options but what there were were good. The kitchen was willing to make alterations to accommodator vegetarianism. The local cheese selections were delicious. The drinks were creative and strong, maybe too strong

Fantastic beer selection, amazing unique cocktail options, and delicious small plates. My favorite: the rabbit meatballs. Oh...and it was packed on a Tuesday night and filled with locals (other places we ate were empty on days before and after since it was late in the season)

Like a Tapas restaurant. Endless varied appetizers which are perfect for a few people hanging out. Great beer selection, great service and absolutely delightful evening at a very reasonable price. The brussel sprouts are killer, the pates and cheeses are excellent and the variety of the selections is sufficient for the most exotic palate. They have sweetbreads, interesting meatloaf, rabbit,...

This is by far one of the best spots in Lake Placid. I have never had a bad meal here and I’m there at least a couple times a month. Every dish is thought out and the flavors go so well together. I don’t consider myself a picky eater but here I have no reservations about what I order at... More

The portions are The "liquids" range from signature cocktails to delicious craft beers. Although the wine list is... More

Small plates, large plates, pouting of the day. Amazing beer list. Great uniques mixed drinks. Such innovative cooking. My only regret is if I loved something on one visit, unlikely to find it again on the menu... It's been replaced by my next favorite thing. From eclectic to downright best burger you have ever had. And the desserts, house made... More
