Great food and great service. Had breakfast here twice. Both times around 8:30am and it was packed so be warned, you may need to wait but it is worth it. That being said, next time we go we'll try to go earlier as it is a small place. But the food is really filling and my young kids loved it... More

This is the place to have breakfast in Lake Placid! My family ate here 3 out of the 4 breakfasts we had in LP. We tried to go to Generations but first were greeted by the host with "what can I do for you"? Who greets patrons that way in a restaurant. Then were seated and did not get attention... More

We arrived around 7:30am and was seated immediately. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was very good. We would definitely go to this restaurant again.

Pretty sure the "filet" Benedict was a well done cheap cut masquerading as medium rare filet. Both burgers overcooked as well. Reputation greatly exceeds reality.

Tried this place, waited 25 minutes to be seated although there was empty tables, waited another 20 to see a waitress, breakfast was served and it was a grease soaked mess. My husband who eats everything could not eat any of the food served. Would not ever go back. Gross

This is the second time I've tried to give his place a chance, won't even put that time Into this review because that is exactly how the staff made Me feel. Horrible service!! I witnessed the owner belittling one the staff members. Tourist trap with basic cold food!

We loved this place so much on Day #1 that we went on Day#2 and then when our Day#3 had an accident causing it to close it became our Day#3 choice, as well. Great menu choices. Bacon filled waffle... Homefries topped with homemade corned beef hash and cheese... So many regular and gluten-free choices... Veggies and meat choices... Cooked perfectly.... More

Food was bland and overcooked. Did not have a number of items on the menu.The curtness and haughtiness of the unapologetic staff topped off what, at best, would have been a mediocre experience. There is great food in Lake Placid, but it is NOT here.
