I was planning on thinking long and hard what to say about this place. Then I realized I didn't want to waste any more of my time than the 2 hours I spent there for dinner. I should have known when the table next to us got up and left without getting their food that this pace was trouble. First... More

Stopped for dinner on a weeknight. Dinner was only being served upstairs. We had a large party and were seated in front of the fireplace which was nice. Pros: -varied menu with reasonable prices -side salad was very fresh and enjoyable -the bread was warm and delicious -portions were nice (prime rib, pasta, steak, salmon) Cons: -the menu states no...

What a warm cozy atmosphere. Big fireplace. Spacious tables. Great menu. My wife and I returned twice after our first visit. Every section from the menu was terrific with generous portions. Katie our waitress and all the staff were warm and friendly and very attentive. We will definitely be back.

Very friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic and the decor is a must see from a deer head over the fireplace to the wooden ducks on the shelves,

The last review was spot on, so every other place on the main main strip is rammed so we started walking farther south towards ice skating rink and came upon this place. Smelled decent walking in, lots of ppl eating there, plenty of pricy yukon denali in parking lot....looked authentic... So they had no line up, sweet cause i was... More

I usually do not select restaurants that have such a low Trip Advisor score. However, I had to cancel reservations at one of the highest rated places in Lake Placid that night in order to attend the ski jumping competition. When we tried to find someplace to eat around 7:30 PM we were faced with anywhere from 60-90 minute waits.... More

We were told 20 minute wait. Upon arriving at 8:30 we waited 40 minutes to be sat and another 20 for drinks and bread. Everyone around us seemed anxious and irritated waiting for their food to come as we and other tables waited forever. Staff was friendly but the restaurant is extremely understaffed. Food is decent for the price. Nothing... More

A really small but nice restaurant right next to the lake, with really good food. There's a special almost everyday at this restaurant. The food were at a okay price, it's not expensive or too cheap.

It started out as a nice evening with a pleasant waitress and hot crusty bread from the oven and fresh starter salads that came with our meal. My husband and I ordered the prime rib cooked to medium rare. His came perfectly done. Mine was as brown as shoe leather. I could tell it was not even close to medium... More
