The Moose Lodge is closed for the season.

The Moose Lodge is closed for the season. We wanted to go there while we were in Lake Placid. We were too late the first night and then found out they were closed for the season. The setting is terrific. Their food? We never got to find out. Their website? It said they were open. Maybe next year...

We have lived on the Whiteface Inn Club grounds for 12 years and the Boathouse is a short walk and our closest restaurant. The setting has always been unparalleled. Stunning waterside decks and views. Now thanks to a new chef and a decision to switch to a lighter tapas menu, it is also the BEST FOOD in town! Every dish... More

i am bias in writing this review because i am not a fan of tapas! (i think it is just a scam to get you to buy more food) sometimes they are a nice option to enjoy with friends, but for a sit down dinner, you need a full meal! they food was pretty good with a nice view. although... More

The location is hard to beat, but pretty much everything else is just average. The service is extremely slow--the only reason to tolerate it is because the water view is just unmatched. The drinks are pricey and small which is a problem due to the very average food. When there are too many people seated at one time, orders are... More

The view was amazing and the food was very good. The service was very excellent. The waiter brought us blankets as the evening got chillier.

I've been coming to the boathouse ever since it opened. Every year theres a different chef and menu, and the food is always average at best. I just went there for the atmosphere - sitting outside on the deck overlooking the lake is the most perfect spot. The inside is a bit bland. i cannot BELIEVE it this year and... More

My 2 friends & I went for drinks and tapas last month, and had a great time! Our server was very sweet and attentive to our wine refills. We selected a variety of different tapas to split and try - all were delicious. We sat on the deck over looking Lake Placid lake on a beautiful yet overcast evening. We... More

Great views of Lake Placid. Beautiful walk through gardens. Unfortunately the food is mediocre at best with a limited lunch menu. Service is extremely slow

First of all the server Molly B. was great. She was friendly and attentive. The view is great as always. It's tapas style now. I don't really like that because you get half the food for twice the money. Basket of fries was the smallest I've ever seen. A medium fry from Wendy's is the same size. They were very... More
