Not so good dining

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... read 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.

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

We had a late dinner on a Saturday night, casual fare, attentive service - just a bit surprised at the meal prices. On an aside, the bathroom was dirty.

I have eaten here many times and I am never disappointed. A simple burger and fries tonight, but it was very good. The French Onion soup is delicious and the service is outstanding.

Seems to have changed hands, but before was the BEST place in town, with a terrific and varied menu of great food........and desserts, cozy fireplace burning in the center in winter and views of the Olympic Oval Skating Rink with the bonfires if you eat in the open front area. Wait staff is usually foreign and sometimes hard to get... More

This is one of the best Prime Ribs I have ever had. It was 14oz of perfectly cooked, thick-cut perfection. The slab they had the evening I was there had just the right amount of fat in it to be good, but not take up 25% of the meat's weight. The bread they serve you was warm and fresh, the... More
