Good but needs more attention

We have been going to Jimmy's annually for years. I love the view and the food is pretty good all around. When I ate meat I always had the veal dishes and they were awesome. Now that I don't eat meat I had the eggplant parmigiana and it was great. Good Italian food.

We had dinner at Jimmy's last night. We ordered a cocktail before dinner. We were very disappointed. It was very weak and watered down. When we received our check after our dinner we were shocked to see that each drink was $12.00. Definitely not worth the price.

On our 3rd evening in Lake Placid we dined at Jimmy's 21. It was a delightful meal. A quiet upstairs outdoor deck with a cooling breeze right by the water. We were greeted immediately as we came in the door. And let me tell you that has not been the case anywhere else. The waiter was attentive and unobtrusive. We... More

The food was simply fantastic! We went on the recommendation of another business in town, and we were so glad we did. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The meal was superb!

Sometimes a simple review is the most useful. Food was tasty and did not disappoint. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were appropriate for the quality of food and atmosphere. Definitely a must eat if in the area and worth the drive if you're not!

Jimmys 21 was the best restaurant we dined at in Lake Placid. Great waiters, food, ambiance, etc... A little pricey but so worth it!

We had French onion soup,and chicken Parmesan. Which were excellent, their bread is homemade and the garlic oil to dip it in was so good. The view is spectacular, and service was great. Definitely have to check it out if you're in lake placid!

Horrible dinner, mash potatoes were bad, and my steak was not filet quality. Server was rude and not concerned. Most food was cold and poor quality. Disappointing for sure . Look elsewhere for food with a view.
