Terrific Hometown Deli

A great hometown deli that also caters parties and events. The best sandwiches anywhere with daily specials including homemade soups, salads, etc. Fast courteous service provided by friendly staff.

Parking area difficult, was told the sandwiches were worth trying. Ruben sandwich was NOT good. Alot of meat on it but very tough/chewy. Only 4 small plastic tables so not really a place to "dine in" but prices reasonable and you can buy all kinds of extras. Just wished I picked a different sandwich. Staff not overly friendly for us... More

We stopped here on a spur, for lunch on a Wednesday. It is a cramped little space, only three or for plastic tables for eat ins. But the meats/sandwiches were delicious. It also sells some eclectic brews, and has a convenient store like wall of drink coolers. Prices were reasonable.

I frequently order my lunch from the Lakeview Deli. It is always ready when I arrive to pick it up and the staff is very accommodating. I also love their soup and sandwiches.

Enjoy a delicious sub, soup or snack! Friendly staff will greet you and make nice conversation as they prepare your meal. Perfect for a quick lunch date - or if you need to grab some food for a road trip or hike!

This little family owned deli has been open for 20+ years. Their sandwiches never disappoint (our favorite is "The Gobbler") and are always fresh/made to order.

Great lunch spot for on-the-go-travelers. Ordered a sub and sandwich, both of which were made with fresh ingredients. Would stop here again. Thanks Lakeview!

We usually leave Lake Placid quick after our last hockey game. Perfect quick stop for a bite to eat. The food is amazing! Subs, soup, salad and snacks. It is a must stop if traveling out rte 86.

We were leaving at night on a Sunday after a hockey tournament and almost didn't notice they were open. So happy we did! Awesome subs, salads, and service! The staff was great! Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

I honestly just started going again after a few years away. Saranac lake has so many choices these days, and I just fell into a lunch rut. Have been getting lunch for about 3 months there 2 or 3 times a week, I have to say I was so foolish to have stayed away. Their soup is amazing. The sandwiches... More
