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.

My wife and I were there last fall and did not have reservations. The host found us a perfect table at a window looking out over Mirror lake. She said they had a last minute cancellation and fit us in. They have a nice selection of wine and local beers. The menu was not extensive but what we ordered was... More

This is a great choice for a romantic dinner with a scenic view of the lake and town. We had salmon and beef filet and both were excellent. Highly recommend for special evening!

I was thorn between 4 and 5 stars because I simply love the place. I visit Boat House every time I am in Lake Placid. A very romantic place, right on Mirror Lake; when sitting next to the window, it feels like moving on a boat. Winter time, fireplace is on, real wood burning, as real as the rest of... More

We were visiting the Lake Placid area during a busy fall foliage weekend. During our stay we encountered long waits at many of the local restaurants. We wanted a nice place to celebrate a birthday where we wouldn't have to spend most of our evening waiting for a table. The Boat House is on the quieter side of Mirror Lake... More

Why bother with any fancier options? This spot is historical and there are amazing food choices. Don't miss the Salmon, the Tarte Tatin, and the Adirondack Guideboat.

The Food and the service is great. Better than great. We had a great server that made the night special. After having a major problem with the manager the server made it up.

We are staying at The Crowne Plaza and we took the free shuttle to The Boathouse for dinner. It was perfect. Just what we needed after a busy day of driving from Quebec.

We loved our dinner so much we returned the same week and ordered the same meal again! I had the 4oz tenderloin w crab cake and my husband had the scallops. Both were superb! Our only complaint is that they bring the meals too fast it is a beautiful location and view and you want time to savour your drinks... More
