“mediocre at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The service here was very slow, awkwardly slow for a table with small children. The food was not imaginative or well prepared. The beer flight was the best part of the meal, but even a couple of the brews were not up to standards for a brewpub.

“Awesome bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This has to be the best bar in Lake Placid. The Ubu beer and the ribs were absolutely delicious, and the bartender, John, made us feel right at home. A truly comfortable place to hang out, and prices were right in the ballpark.

“Juicy hamburgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Went for lunch after walking around Lake Placid, and was recommended to go here for a cold one and lunch. The beer was cold and hamburg was good, chili was good too, but a little on the spivey hot side.

“Terrific pub and brewery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

This pub is a short worthwhile walk from Main St. We stopped in around 1:00 in the afternoon and was told there would be a wait so we sat at the bar to wait and decided to eat there. The place is busy so even the bartender took time to wait on us ....not too bad but he was busy. The food especially considering its a pub and brewery was phenomenal. Perhaps the best pulled pork sandwich I've had in a long time. The grilled chicken ceaser salad was excellent too. I also enjoyed the beer. Overall a great place to enjoy a beer and a good meal.

“Bit of a disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We were first told a 45 min wait which turned into 1.5hrs( we should of left but with kids we didn't want to end up waiting elsewhere)....the food was ok-average with all meals coming out at different times it's good if you want a few beers and some gut fill...not our first choice
