“Good beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Went up Lake Placid for the Memorial Day weekend... Checked out this little microbrewery as the weather was terrible. Bartender was friendly and steered us in the right direction for what's beers to have. Great value at only $5 a beer, plus free popcorn on the bar to nibble on.

“Our favorite place to eat in Lake Placid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

My hubby and I never miss a chance to eat there when we are in Placid. So much so that we are having our rehearsal dinner for our wedding there. There is a bar on the first floor that is cozy and rustic. The main dining area is on the second floor. And then have recently renovated and added another level for more diners and private banquet room (even a small room for kids to play). The menu is better than typical pub fare. Burgers, hearty soups, bbq, salads... my favorite is the grilled chicken maple melt. But the best reason to come is the brew. UBU is awesome but if you like a milk stout you must try Nippletop. The Moose Island Ale is great in the summertime. There is a small deck for outdoor seating that overlooks Mirror Lake. It's a small place so you might have to wait during busy hours but it's worth it.

“Best Shepherd's Pie ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The beer was really good too. I had the UBU and it was also very good. We had the cheese platter and the maple cheddar was a real joy. We got the 1/2 platter and ended up taking some home it was so much. The service was very good and loved the setting in the old church.

“A must in lake placid”

Yummy beer, and fried pickles!! All food was delicious. Three floors of seating, plus a patio.
Prices reasonable. Oh and my husband says the "Ecto wrap" was killer

“Great Restaurant and Pub...Very Family Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We visited the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery on a very busy Saturday night with 2 other families...lot of little kids. The service was far beyond expectations. Even though we had to wait ~45 minutes for a large table - which any parent can tell you can be tough with several kids under 5 years old - it wasn't an issue since they put in a great little playroom for younger children. We all really appreciated they went above and beyond to cater to families, and it in no way takes away from the pub itself for those without kids. Food was great, beer was great...we'll be back next year!
