Had breakfast there, the Adirondack skillet was tasty but had too many potatoes in it. I would have preferred the, on the side instead of inside my omelette. Overall it was too expensive for what we got.

There was nothing quite special about this place. Nice outdoor seating. The food was average but very overpriced for the quality. There are much better places in town to eat.

been here twice already and we all loved the food. It's great to sit outside during the summer. The alfredo chicken pasta was amazing and so was the spicey seafood pasta. LOVED the food

Lunch service was very slow even though there were few people in the restaurant. The only palatable dish was a cup of soup. Beyond this: the Cobb salad I ordered was so overwhelmingly dressed that it was practically a soup itself, and virtually inedible. My dining companion had an overly vinegary coleslaw, bland rice and beans, and incredibly soggy sweet... More

The service and food for this place was OK. In the winter they have a door that opens up into the restaurant and easy to get cold blasts through your meal-not the best. I would skip if you can....find somewhere else. Just OK and not too great of service.

We were in Lake Placid to see the leaves in peak color and decided to visit the Northern Exposure Restaurant one morning for breakfast. We should have known right off the bat that something was amiss because as we stood in line for about 10 minutes no one even acknowledged that we were waiting for a table. When the waitress... More

Really bad .It was so bad all we had was a half cup of coffee after waiting for almost 20 minutes to be seated and it wasn't because they were crowded just terrible staffing. Once we were seated I had the coffee practically spilled on me. Then had to ask for cream and sugar more than a few times and... More
