Beautiful view and good food. Not a knock out foodie establishment however we had well prepared fare served by an attentive waiter. Walkable from the Hampton Inn.

Great view on Lake Placid, but quite average food quality for the price. We were hoping for fancier food but did not find it there.

We were out for the day and on way back we wanted to see about dining there on way back to hotel. Well I guess My wife got the look up and down and "reservations are highly recommended" from the staff member she encountered. Well we found better dinner elsewhere. You really should not judge people for what they are... More

Operated by the Crowne Plaza, they have brought in some menu items from the Veranda restaurant, a wonderful restaurant that was closed when their chef retired.

We wanted to entertain our guests and chose to go to a restaurant with a nice view on the lake.The view was good, indeed. However, the food was average. I ordered medium-rare filet mignon which was close to well done. In addition, it was not cheap ($35). For these money I could have much better dinner in Lake Placid. I... More

On the quiet side of Mirror Lake, make a reservation. Food was excellent, peppered steak was great. Appetizers - wings and potstickers were good. Wish we had room to try dessert. Entire family enjoyed everything. A must visit in Lake Placid.

We were seated in a smaller room off the main dining room which gave us a perfect view of the sunset and the lake. The food from the bread basket to the entrees was great. We both had different meals but agreed that they were both 10s. This is a nice place to pamper yourself with service and scenery and... More

In the end the view of Mirror Lake probably beat the food, but upon reflection the food was pretty good. The Mango Salmon and the Guide Boat (filet and crab cake combo) were very good. The cod was good, not great. I'd definitely get the scallops with mashed cauliflower again. The desserts were very nice. We had the maple crime... More
