Go for the view, not the food.

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... read 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

Sometimes the service may not be up to par if you are from the big city; but everyone is ALWAYS friendly and trying their so very best to provide excellent service; and... More

Party of 8.Turned us away because we had to many little ones (5). We were there at 5 pm and place was empty. Said that we couldn't even sit at bar high top tables because they "didn't have enough food". Wow. Won't be back.

We come to Lake Placid every year and seek out this place every time for lunch thanks to the view not the menu or service. Today, while eating with my family the bartender or manager Allison decided she needed to come out to tell me, after asking how are the bloody Mary's that she made for us were, that my... More

The only issue we had was spotting the rather small sign on the RHS of the road coming out of town and down to Lake Placid. There is a lovely approach walk through gardens and great views from the deck. Service was cheerful. Staff do have a greater than normal distance to the kitchen but were keeping up. We were... More
