My husband and I were recently visiting the Lake Placid area. We were advised to try the Wilderness II restaurant.
We both loved and appreciated how "old school" the restaurant is. This is the place to come when you want good, home-cooking without pretension. The restaurant is cozy and the staff is very welcoming. The dining room is romantic, but it also lends itself to families.
We sat beside the fireplace and we remarked how magical this place would be in the winter.
There is a salad bar with the usual fixings -- try the potato salad and spicy corn salad!
Warm buns also accompany your dinner!
We shared the shrimp cocktail and we both really enjoyed the homemade cocktail sauce. For dinner, I had the stuffed pork chop with homemade applesauce. My husband had the stuffed chicken. You could tell that both entrees were made from scratch, but the cranberry sauce that was served with the chicken was from a can.
We were both too full for dessert.
With drinks (wine and rum punch) our meal was less than $60!
We would definitely return to this restaurant!
