Great Italian Food

Homemade pasta made daily, a beautiful view overlooking Mirror Lake, and a nice little bar in the front of the restaurant. We've been going there for about 15 years and hope to continue for the next 15 years!

MY wife and I visited Lake Placid for the first time this weekend. Lot's of fun shops and restaurants to choose from. We decided on Jimmy's 21 for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon (6/27/15). We enjoyed the dining room to ourselves, with a wonder view of the lake. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive (Olivander?), and our meals... More

Went for dinner later then normal, around 8 pm. We got a great view on the top floor and we were right on the lake. Food was fine but service was really slow. We had hoped that by going a bit later that we would have better luck but not the case. Also since it was later we did not... More

Went to Jimmy's 21 for Saturday night dinner in Lake Placid - sitting on the deck upstairs, overlooking the water, makes it all worthwhile. The service folks are nice and attentive. The food is good - not the best, but good value considering reasonable pricing. The kitchen is very slow, which is ok when you have the view - if... More

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!
