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.

Very good dinner and wonderful view of the Lake

This is a great restaurant out of the tourist area and with a wonderful view of the Lake. We had an absolutely delightful dinner!

At the Boat House you can literally sit over the water as the building itself reaches out over Mirror Lake. The view is spectacular and the service excellent. I was here for a business meeting and they accommodated our need for privacy without hindering our enjoyment of the place. They were able to seat our group and serve us well.... More

We were shuttled from our hotel on a rainy night and found the Boat House to be an excellent choice for dinner. Disappointed that they were out of Rainbow Trout but there were many other find dishes to choose from. Good wine list as well and the bar made a very good Manhattan!

Called to make a reservation the same evening. Upon arrival with my family the staff was very polite and provided a great table overlooking the lake view (which you would like if your taking in the view). Started with the soup and some appetizers and it only got better from there. The food was excellent. The service provided everything on... More

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.

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.

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
