We have been here a couple of times and the service has been excellent. The food is unique but very flavorful and great quality. If you are into the same old boring food place then you are in the wrong place. Please give it a try and you will not be sorry you did.

Originally I didnt know what to make of this place - is it a burgers and steaks place, is it a Caribbean place.... answer was all of the above. My Onion Ring, BBQ sauce, Bacon Cheeseburger was as good as my wife's Chicken Curry.

And there was no disappointment! This place is a FIND FOR SURE. One of the best tasting food joints we have eaten in in a long time. If this place was in NY... More

I was expecting a basic meat and potatoes kind of place and was delighted to experience a wonderful fusion dining experience. The corn chowder was beyond delicious with a sophisticated blend of flavors. Likewise the spicy peanut tofu with udon noodles had wonderful vegetables,perfectly crisp cooked in a light sauce that was so good, I didn't want to miss a... More

I go to The Cowboy once a week. I really love the atmosphere, drinks and great food. We always start with the spring rolls and I usually get the salmon. My wife loves the jerk chicken. There food is so flavorful, I wouldn't miss it if you are visiting Lake Placid!

We had dinner here twice this week . The first visit was great from service to food. The second visit didn't go as well. The food was as good, but the service was a bit disappointing. Drinks were slow in coming and our appetizers came out with our dinners. The server said "sorry", but didn't offer any solution . They... More

Don't let the name fool you. Almost everyone in our party said they probably would't have stopped because of the name. Thankfully I had been here a couple years ago and convinced them it was great. There were 8 of us in our party and every one of us were extremely happy. The menu is interesting, the food is excellent... More

After a bad experience down the road we stopped in here. The service was wonderful--very friendly. We noticed lots of locals in and out and some around the bar. That's always a good sign. The menu is unusual for a place called "Cowboys" but in a good way. Hubby had a burger and I had a steak and both were... More
