We literally stumbled into this place by default as the eatery we had in mind were either vacuuming in the middle of lunch or randomly cleaning. I'm glad they were because Lisa G's is a find. The back porch, located on a small river dam, is lovely. The drinks are reasonable and generous. The spicy pork lettuce wraps rocked. The... More

We were seated outside on a great night and enjoyed good food. Our waiter was attentive and just made us feel at home. Excellent value and atmosphere.

Usually when you see crowds of locals at a restaurant it's a good indicator that something good's inside. This might be an exception. We got there late in the afternoon and sat at the bar. Order some wine and a pint of blueberry ale (wife said it was delicious) with most drinks coming in at $8.00. Weren't too hungry so... More

The great: 1. I'm sure wing night is a great local favorite, and the wings we tried were good, and very inexpensive. 2. The young man who was our bartender was energetic, helpful, extremely polite. 3. My black beans taco were delicious. Nice and healthy. The not so great: 1. We got there late on wing night, and you could... More

Most people were outside since it was a good day out. The restaurant is in decent shape and seems popular. The special -- NY strip -- was reasonably well cooked but could have used a little more flavor. The fries are very good. I'd say that the food was above average quality, but not spectacular. Prices are reasonable. Worth going... More

Was traveling alone and wanted to sit and have a good meal and some drinks. Luckily found a place at the bar to sit and felt comfortable being alone. Had chicken parmesan which was quite good and nice portion size. Nice draft beer selection but it was extremely crowded & noisy and then completely died off around 9 PM. Staff... More

I read a description of this place as the spot for locals to grab a burger. The food was ok- nothing special at all, the restaurant itself was dated, and our waitress wasn't very friendly. It just seemed like none of the servers wanted to be there and didn't even make an effort to fake it. Go to Desperados. Or... More

Lisa G's is close to downtown, but off of Main St. Lucky for us, it was on the way to our vacation rental. The place was hopping on Friday night. We got take-out and the food was very good. Service was good. I tried the TURKEY CLUB (The classic triple-decker on whole wheat toast with turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and... More

So... what can I say... first of all, they serve you a PLATTER of fries.. literally (if the order has any), so you end up with something you do not need, nor want. Second, the food used to be better, we return to Lake Placid every year, and since our girls were away at horse camp, we decided to go... More

Although it was really crowded when we showed up, none of the staff acted the least bit snappy, which is sometimes the case when places get swamped. Everyone was exceptionally nice, and we were able to sit with our dog outside the patio in a little waiting area and have a beer. We eventually got a table on the patio,... More
