I confess I was a bit skeptical of coming here because the recent TA reviews were mixed and somewhat contradictory --but a friend who travels to this area frequently had high praise. My husband and I were seated promptly on the small outside porch - our choice - and while the views isn't much to look at, its nice being... More

I had dispaired of finding a restaurant that served fresh food superbly prepared, with careful attention to sourcing local and sustainable vegetables, greens, fish and seafood, and meat, to the extent possible. Then a friend took us to Chair 6. Among the seven of us, no one had anything that was less than perfectly prepared and presented. My Monterey Aquarium... More

Second trip to lake Placid, 2nd and 3rd trip to Chair 6. We had heard about the Why Not Wednesday dinner feature so decided to try it out. $20 and 3 course dinner that offered great selections and delicious food. This small restaurant serves up some big flavours with an innovative, locally inspired selection of appetizers, mains and desserts. The... More

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment above chair 6. Was welcomed with a bottle of wine. Good down stairs, had breakfast, amazing food, huge amounts, and service was great. Will go back again for sure.

We went there for lunch yesterday, after checking their web page and Yelp. Both said Chair 6 was open. Nope! Closed. When I pointed out to the guy (owner?) behind the counter that his web page said they were open, all I got was a surly grunt. No apology. He did not care that he had inconvenienced us.

Like the title says....dayum! They mean it when they say creative and fresh ingredients. I've been there twice for breakfast, had the pancakes and huevos rancheros , and both were so good! It's a teeny tiny resto so you may have to wait, so it's best to call ahead or go on the "off" times....both times I had a later... More

We expected better given the good reviews we had read. However, our experience was more consistent with the negative reviews. This restaurant is a converted lower floor of a small house. It's a very small place so we called in advance to find out if we could make reservations (no) and what the estimated wait would be (they had no... More

We found this restaurant on yelp as we rolled into town. It was listed as $$ and family friendly and I certainly don't agree with any of it but we still had a wonderful experience. The restaurant literally has 7 tables. I would classify it as fine dining, not family friendly. However, they did have a high chair and the... More

My husband and I dined at Chair 6 last month. We had a wonderful experience. It was a quiet Sunday night, the last night of our 4 day stay in the area. We visit Lake Placid every winter but this was our first time at Chair 6. We started with the panzanella salad which was delicious. My husband had the... More
