This was simply a convenience visit. We had a credit on our room and were staying in the hotel on a snowy night. I honestly wouldn’t come back otherwise. The wings were okay, not crispy. The duck quesadilla was interesting. My husband’s Reuben was good...More

So convenient! Good breakfast, great coffee and if you’re staying in the hotel why overthink it? Very good service and typical prices for Lake Placid.

Had a great priced happy hour 3-7pm. $2 beers, $4 well drinks. Didn’t eat there, but menu and food coming out of the kitchen looked good. Nice view of the Main Street out the windows so can watch what is going on downtown.

We have been here at least 15 times. The food is consistently good, and the service is excellent. The menu has a nice variety, and the chili is incredible.

Had a good family lunch with wife and 7&8 year old daughters. A little pricey for kids meals. If you can get a seat by the windows there are beautiful sights of Mirror Lake. Worth a stop.
