All I can say is the whole experience was fabulous! The entire Inn was still decorated for Christmas, inside and out.The steak was outstanding and the service friendly, but impeccable. My dessert was served on a plate decorated with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate! Our waitress even sent us home with a framed photo of the occasion.

We come to lake placid every year with my husbands family. 14 people. We generally eat lunch at the cottage but decided to try something different so we went out for breakfast. I was expecting a much more elaborate buffet from a place like this especially for the price . I felt like they were watching us and replacing the... More

To say that the restaurant and staff were accommodating and professional is a gross understatement! They went the extra mile in not only explaining the various courses of the meal, but also recommendations for wine. Everything was well timed throughout the meal. The staff was attentive but not overly so (by that I mean not interrupting every few minutes). The... More

Nice place to have a special dinner. Wonderful food and great service. Would definitely recommend. Had dinner and the next day had breakfast. The buffet is delicious, so much to choose from. Love the omelet station and the French toast and pancakes. Can't wait to go back.

We were guided to this spot by Trip Advisor and couldn't have been happier with that advice! Beautiful spot with a great view of Mirror lake from the dining room. Wonderful greeting when we arrived for lunch and the wait staff was very attentive and engaged. We sampled from the beer selections which were varied and interesting and had a... More

Outstanding View - Of Course.. But, truthfully not much better than the Bistro - which in our opinion had a better Value-for-Money selection. Would suggest that they upgrade the menu.. Good food - but have had better for less price elsewhere.

This is a great choice for a special dinner. The Dining Room is lovely, and the service is polished, yet warm. Everything we've tried on the menu had been excellent, and there are always new Chef's choices. A great wine list too, with some very reasonably priced options as well as fine vintage wines.

Not only is it lovely but food here is out of this world. It's a big meandering type room-sectioned off so you feel really cozy.
