Great dining experience

I had a great meal here at Liquids and Solids. Quite unusual and creative menu. This is not a steak and potatoes restaurant. I had LONDON BROIL, YORKSHIRE PUDDING, FRISEE, HORSERADISH, SQUASH, GARLIC & TRUFFLE FRAICHE for $17 - with a very nice draft Maine beer. Also had a beer battered... read more

This place is cozy, dimly lit, and has high quality food. We ordered the fried brussel sprouts (amazing!) and I had a nice glass of red wine. My son ordered a mountain of poutine and we had some grilled veggies too. Dessert was fantastic! It involved a creamy custardy baked dish with maple syrup (not recalling the name). One suggestion-...

I made the 6 hour drive to Lake Placid in large part for the meal that awaited me at L&S. I love this place. It is a breath of fresh air in the staid Lake Placid food scene. I drop in on Lake Placid 4-5 times a year and enjoy Liquids and Solids each time. Be adventurous--one of the best... More

Had a great time here. Restaurant was perfectly busy with no wait but not empty. The food was amazing and full of flavor and the beer menu was spectacular. If you like beer garden type places this is for you!

This is what makes a 4 ½ hour round trip for a beer and a bite to eat well worth it. While there are plenty of bottled craft beers available, there are only six drafts. But OH, what wonderful drafts they are. We chose a 16 oz. Pinner Throwback IPA ($6; 4.9% abv) from Oskar Blues Brewery in either Colorado... More

The food offered was very much on the gourmet side. Do not let the serving size appearance fool you. We both had a difficult time finishing our entrees but we forced ourselves. Food is innovative, fresh and unique - but not so

I have eaten here about four or five times over the past 18 months. I'm a local and appreciate what this place is trying to accomplish in such a painfully generic chicken wing and pub burger town. Really. I get it. But, the truth is, this restaurant simply is not as good (or as cool) as it thinks it is;... More

We came in with a group of friends, to see what the fuss was all about as Liquids & Solids were recommended by a few locals. First, there is nothing on the menu that one cannot prepare & cook on your own, second, the menu offers variety but not quality. Its eclectic and not a usual menu that one would... More

Ambiance: It's a relatively small place with dim, cozy lighting and tall tables, candles on the table in mason jars, a roaring fire in the cast iron stove at one end of the room. The crowd looked like a combination of couples/dates, a birthday party, one family, with some apres ski (like us) sprinkled in. It was packed when we... More

5 star dining. The food and drink were outstanding. They would not substitute kale with my caesar and the menu is highly confusing. Minor criticisms for such high quality fair. Highly recommended, hopefully they improve the menu's presentation or the server's translation. My water was always full... This is a better indication of quality service. Overall outstanding but true criticism... More
