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

We have been going here for many years because the view and the gardens are amazing. The food and service has always been fine up until tonight. We waited almost 1 hour 45 minutes for our terrible dinner. It was a shame. The manager was aware as we complained at the 1:15 mark and nothing... No offer of a drink... More

Too bad this gem is only opened seasonally. Good food, good prices and fabulous views. I like going there for lunch as well, and wish it was open 7 days a week.

A couple weeks ago I brought the family to dinner here. We've been here many times last year so felt safe it would be wonderful this year. The service was slow - was it training of waitstaff or kitchen slowness - who knows? The food was okay, but not as wonderful as in years past. We sent back a dish... More

We have been coming to the Moose Restaurant for years. Why ? Because of the great view. The service is always the worse we have ever experienced. Yesterday, July 5th, we sat at our table at 1pm. We received our food starting at 2:15pm. There was 8 of us. At 2:15 two people in our party received their food. This... More

Good food--superb mussels, good service. albeit a bit condescending. We ate outside and were plagued by black flies and mosquitos as well as the sun. The view, a lovely one, was obstructed by the interior of the resto. I wish we had eaten inside

Beautiful view, amazing location and well frankly, missed opportunity due to poor service and average food. As a former resident of the area, whom now spends summer and holidays in LP, we've always felt that the Moose Lodge is average but worth a trip due to the view, this most recent visit was the worst in our nearly dozen trips...

First of all, after you park, there is a lovely walk through well-tended gardens to the restaurant. Once you arrive, you have the choice of sitting on the deck, or indoors in a spacious dining room where the tables are NOT crowded together. The view is spectacular. The atmosphere is quiet and calm. Each person at our table of four... More
