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

Good for lunch and drinks while boating on lake placid. The views are amazing and the prices are reasonable. Kid/Family friendly. Arriving by boat can be quite difficult - Minimal boat parking. Recommend for lunch and to-go meals while on lake placid. Only negative is food often takes much longer then expected and service can be young and unprofessional.

We were looking forward to a special evening here, traveled all the way from Scotland to lake placid. Foreword - I am a natural optimist so it takes a lot for me to whine. So lets start with the good stuff - beautiful walk in - the gardens, the view, the lake, the setting it's just stunning. Shown straight to... More

That is what it's all about. The food is fine. Service good, but unremarkable. The dining room really needs some updating and better design and decor, but you can not beat the view!
