Seven of us went for dinner including my wife with gluten allergies. They prepared everything to order and made my wife's dish as requested. Prices are very resonance and you can tell each dish was prepared with care. Flavones were excellent. Recommend the clam chowder , scallops and burgers. A must if you are in Lake Placid.

We stopped by for lunch, it took a bit longer than expected but the food was great. We took the waiters advice and were very pleased.

Came here when travelling through town with the family. The restaurant is lovely and modern inside and a good spot for families. The food was great... When it finally arrived. It took more than 35 minutes for a salad and a burger. And, the hunger was not as described on the menu; they forgot the guacamole. But, the burger was... More

Our first visit - primarily to partake of their reasonably priced prime rib dinner. We were not really expecting the gourmet atmosphere, dinner guitarist, and beautiful ambiance, which definitely added to the dining experience. The server was extremely knowledgeable as to how the foods are prepared and readily allowed for modifications to meet dietary preferences- a big plus for us.... More

They had live entertainment on a Monday night, our party of six was looking for something not too fancy, this is a great choice. The bread they first bring out is amazing, gone very quickly! Varied menu, hazelnut chicken and risotto was excellent, the Hibernator burger looked great. Pretty standard wine list but fairly priced. Our server was great, we... More

We where surprised at the dinner menu from the outside decor. The outside gives you the roadhouse feel as does the signage advertising live music. Our server Nick was very pleasant and knew the Menu well. The food was slow coming but the pre dinner bread made up for the wait. This is not a place that serves fast food... More

I had the brunch buffet. Although the selection on the buffet was limited everything was prepared with care and tasted delicious. Prime Rib! Also the service was perfect, host/manager and waitress were on point.

Buffett - disorganized , WAY overpriced , constantly running out of items of the 8 food Buffett selection. All the rude, lazy waitress had to do was sit people down and tell plates at Buffett and maybe just maybe get them some water at least. Nope that was too much for her to handle- finally got a glass of water... More

Dear Deanna R, I held off on responding to this review because I honestly did not know how to answer respectfully. I also could not have responded better than the 171 other diners that joined us the same day, or the reviews that raved about the Buffet and immediately followed yours. We very much appreciate constructive and honest feedback from... More
