Make sure that you buy this package from the Mirror Lake Inn before eating there. The food is excellent and the waitstaff will do whatever it takes to ensure that you have a great meal.

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.

We ate here in late September and enjoyed the experience. We were seated at a window, but there is only a garden view...not so much a lake view. The restaurant is somewhat small and cozy. The wait staff was excellent. Professional and helpful. The food was very good. And they know how to take care of their customers. We ordered... More

The View advertises itself as the only Four Diamond exceptional rated restaurant in Lake Placid. Based on our visit this may be true for the ambiance and the food but the service definitely had some issues. Both our lamb shank and venison were very tasty and well presented although the crab cake appetizer is somewhat over priced at $19 for... More

One of the most beautiful places to eat, my favorite meal here is breakfast. We go out of our way to ensure we come back every year, because it is worth it. A little pricey, but totally classy.
