A perfect Adirondack evening begins at the Lake Placid Club Boat House on the pristine shores of Mirror Lake, in the center of Lake Placid Village. The diverse menu is sure to please all featuring seafood, steaks, pasta dishes & savory items from the grill. The Lake Placid Club Boat House provides a truly memorable dining experience - dining indoors amidst classic "Arts & Crafts" decor, or seasonal outdoor dining on our large deck - all with spectacular sunsets, overlooking the lake and the Mackenzie mountain range. The Boat House is the perfect spot to view all the lake activities from boating & swimming to ice skating & dog sled rides. The cozy fireside seating area and bar are great spots for enjoying cocktails and delicious desserts. Our wine list features organic and sustainable farming wines. Children’s menu & take out available. Ample free parking. Private lake side dining rooms available for special events.

I remember the view, not the food, so that tells me the food was OK but not spectacular. Close walk to Hampton Inn, good service

Whenever we want a real treat while visiting Lake Placid we eat at the Boat House. The restaurant has never been crowded, the staff is great and the food is excellent.

The Boat House Restaurant was recommended by several friends as a must see/must dine location. I've dined here twice but more because of the setting than the food itself. Not that the food was bad but not amazing either. The setting is second to none, however. If you time your visit just right, you can sit on the great deck... More

Despite traveling to Lake Placid frequently, we "discovered" this restaurant very recently. Even on extremely busy weekends and holidays, we have experienced very short wait times and have always been offered a table by a window with water views. Reservations are also available which sets it apart from other popular Lake Placid restaurants. This restaurant has become among our favorites... More

The view is amazing and there's a shuttle from the Crowne Plaza to the rstaurant since it's on the other side of the lake. But for the food.... We had quinoa vege meal and our friends had burgers and it was ok not more. 1$ or 2$ more per meal make a difference at the end . I think you... More

Hubby had chowder - I had a salad - lovely nice light meal - outstanding service. Beautiful view. We weren't very hungry and they didn't pressure us at all. Just a really nice experience. Lots of choice for those wanting a fancy meal.

Boring, uninspired food. I could have done better at home. I had the trout - it was overcooked and had too much butter. The "fresh market vegetables" consisted of over cooked carrots - no flavour. The starch was jasmine rice. Again, boring. The maple creme brule was okay - the best part of the meal, but unfortunately that isn't saying... More
