We went for lunch recently and while our food was good, it was nothing special. It was busy and very difficult to figure out who was next or to whom the person behind the counter was talking. After several obviously frequent customers took advantage of our hesitation, we got bolder and were able to place our orders with a very... More

Stopped in with a group for lunch. They were very busy so it was about a 5 minute wait, big deal! Food was fresh, service was great, many choices. Just a great deli! It would be tough to beat almost anywhere!

Called in an order at 11:15 today for 7 lunches - a substantial order. Very rude response - annoyed because they'd already delivered to the same business (different department - how would we know?) We were told it would be an hour. That's quite a wait, but okay. After an hour and a half, we called back and were told,... More

I apologize for your dissatisfaction in our performance. Our free delivery service to your area always leaves at 11:00 AM; we deliver to the other side of town after 12:00. Receiving a call from you after 12:00 for a delivery was going to be a challenge for us on the best of days. I, with good intentions, tried to get... More

We have ordered sandwiches here before going out on the lake for the day. Never disappointed. Used them in the past to cater for functions (none ours) and they came thru with flying colors.

I was very surprised to happen upon such an awesome find. This deli was fantastic. Location was convenient. Staff was friendly. Food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. There was a great selection and even though I did not get to try the desserts or side salads, they did look amazing! I would definitely recommend this place and would certainly return... More

Such nice people serving a quality product. Certainly there is deli food, but also an enticing list of daily featured specials that go way farther than just deli food.

Consistently good fresh food @ reasonable prices! Close to the lake, downtown and all attractions. Breakfast, lunch or supper, lots of choices and most made fresh daily!

I recently had Lakeview Deli cater my wedding and they did a wonderful job! It was delicious and even though the food traveled from Saranac Lake to Wilmington, it was still hot and fresh (despite the oven we rented not working). The service team was great and went above and beyond the call of duty. They catered (no pun intended)... More

This is a great lunch spot right on Lake Flower in Saranac lake. Fresh made sandwiches and subs, deli salads or hot specials, and baked goods. Be ready for a short wait in line everyone knows about this place. There is inside and outside seating but it's limited. I get food to go and walk across the street to Lake... More

They have really great sandwiches for take out that you can eat at home or at tables outside. Not sure is this is mainly a "local" place but I had a meal catered by Lakeview of ziti and baked chicken that was excellent. Can't go wrong here.
