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.

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

Very good menu (the steak with peppercorn sauce and the tomato stack salad are particularly good). Beer list is OK. Decor and view are flawless. If you stay at the Crown Plaza there is a free shuttle bus over to the restaurant.
