Rooms were clean and comfortable. Property was lovely and quiet, albeit not all that well marked if you aren't staying in the main house, which I was not. Very friendly. Room service was great as well!

Dinner deserved a standing ovation, I had a cold and I could still taste the great quality of the food, they have a private room for exclusive dinner parties where we held our dinner as a group, strongly recommend

The menu offerings provide a diner freedom to either eat vegetarian or to indulge in meats. The fresh crusty rolls were piping hot. We opted to explore the intriguing first-course options as a total meal beginning with the Grilled Baby Iceberg Lettuce. Offered with this retro and classic dish was a delicious buttermilk blue cheese, smoky bacon pieces and a... More

We ate the Interlaken Inn again when we were in Lake Placid this past week and was not disappointed. We sat at the bar and the bartender (Blonde) has always been super nice, provides great service, etc - A real asset to Interlaken. On the other hand, the bartender was assisted by a Brunette and she seemed grumpy and was... More

Had the salmon and lamb chop special. Very good. The food could have been hotter. Our server was great, went above and beyond. Would definitely go back.

We had eaten at the Interlaken about 15 years ago and wanted to give it a try again for my husband's birthday, as it was a great experience in the past. First I would like to say that my complaint has NOTHING to do with the quality of the food or the service of the wait staff. Both quality and... More

When our group of foodies and restaurant owners arrived, we instantly noticed how empty the place was on a Saturday. Strike #1. We had an 8pm reservation and were celebrating two 40th birthdays (which I had mentioned when I called). Our group of 10 stood in the foyer for 10 minutes before a waiter walked by and asked if we...

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here over the holidays with family and friends. It is a beautiful, antique-filled inn with ample dining space spread out over several rooms. Service was friendly and professional, and the meal was well paced. The chef sent out a duck sample that was fantastic! Our girls loved the potato soup. The salads were bright and... More

Wow! We hit the jackpot! Wonderful, wonderful. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the Chicken Pot Pie. We loved this place. Service isn't "perfection" but they are very friendly and accommodating. You'll love it! We did.

We scheduled a holiday gathering for 21 of us at the Interlaken Restaurant. A beautifully decorated room off the main entrance made for a perfect setting for our group. It was a Thursday night when they offer a "small plate" special. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. I tried a scallop dish, a shepard's pie and a superb... More
