Cozy athmosphere, great food and ambience

Had dinner at the Fireside. Sat by the Fireplace. They had a Martini Special. Pretty good and for a very cheap price. The food was excellence and sitting by the Fireplace was charming. The Fireplace is huge!

No complaints about this restaurant. Usually you pay high prices in a resort town, but we thought the prices were very reasonable. There is a dining guide for Lake Placid where you can find the complete menu for this restaurant with prices listed. My husband and I both had the prime rib and we were very pleased. We got a...

Had dinner on a Tuesday night with my husband and two children. I had prime rib, which was good. My husband had the rib eye which he enjoyed. Three of us had soup which was also yummy. It was a fine restaurant for the kids. There was a children's menu and crayons. Our experience with the staff was good. Our... More

We had dinner here during Ironman weekend and we did not have a long wait at all. Our server was friendly and polite, the water was refilled constantly, and the food was quite good. We had french onion soup and prime rib - both of us - one medium, one medium well and no complaints on either side. Requested extra... More

Don't argue with the manager/cook/servers if your steak is not cooked correctly. This place was a total dissapointment. Ok, the bread was good. This is Lake Placid! But then again...I should have looked at the reviews first. Will not recommend to anyone.

On vacation for a bit over the weekend. Chef doesn't know the difference between medium rare and medium Bad service. Embarrassing and disappointing. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

Not the best food. Despite a fairly good sized menu many of the choices were way to rich for my liking. Had the prime rib- it was only fair at best. Had the Lake Placid 2015 dining guide and prices in guide were WAY cheaper in the guide than we found at the restaurant. We're eaten there for many years... More

We could tell this place used to be good, but it's looking and feeling a bit tired these days. My wife's steak was not cooked to her liking and my seafood pasta medley was bland and overcooked. That said, our waitress, Anastasijia, was a breath of fresh air, with an Eastern European accent and a polite, bubbly attitude that was... More
