Description: 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.

We travel a lot eating in large and small Eatery`s. This past 10 day road adventure from Michigan to Boston was a disappointment when it came to food and hotels. But midway through our trip we stumbled upon this place after carefully looking at the restaurants in Lake Placid and tried 4 of them. "BOAT HOUSE" is a hidden gem,... More

I eat crab cakes all the time. If you are going to advertise jumbo lump crab, that is what you should use. the crab was more like backfin crab. they were also full of fillers. The price made me skeptical. jumbo lump cost 20 dollars a pound. use what you advertise and raise the price.

There is much good to recommend about this place. Of course, the setting and views over Mirror Lake are top notch. And the service is friendly and excellent (a tip of the hat to James). But the menu needs some work. There are some excellent dishes. The house salad featured fresh, lovely greens and veggies, and the house lemon vinigarette... More

The crab cake entree, two large, with rice and carrots were not only some of the best we have had but a very good value at $21. The Guide Boat, which is one crab cake and a 4 oz filet was just as good but not quite the same value at $32. Our soup starter of french onion for my... More

What a beautiful spot to enjoy a very good meal! The view of the lake and the village of Lake Placid is spectacular, the service very friendly and attentive, and the food very good without being memorable. And the leisurely walk back to town (about 20 minutes at a normal clip) was icing on the cake. Thank you Melanie for... More
