Perfect romantic set up. Also well equipped for families. Food was excellent. Try the chicken breast on arugula and tomatoes! Service was perfect.

The service was poor as the waiter was distracted and overworked. The restaurant had a sense of entitlement that was not earned. I had the salmon which was overlooked. My husband had a very meager portion of five tiny scallops which were very tasty. The calamari appetizer was very good. Excellent view but diappointing meal for our 25 th anniversary.

We arrived when the restaurant opened at 5 p.m. on a Wednesday and left after sunset. We had a great rable with a panoramic view of Mirror Lake. The restaurant filled up rapidly after we arrived. For appetizers we shared the French onion soup and the seared tuna wonton; for entrees we had the rainbow trout and garden shrimp pasta;... More

This was my second time having dinner here, and I cant find one thing to complain about. The view out the windows and across the lake, especially in fall, is beautiful. Watching the sun go down and the lake change in colors is really spectacular. This restaurant is on the other side of the lake away from the bustle of... More

My wife and I picked the Boat House Restaurant (Lake Placid Club, Lake Placid NY) for a special dinner (her birthday) on a relatively warm, mostly sunny afternoon/evening, and we could not have been more satisfied. The restaurant had just opened when we came through the door; we received immediate seating in a choice location – one of the window... More

Our bus trip from NJ included this etsablishment for our final night's dinner. BTW, it is called the Lake Placid Club Boat House--think there may have been a slight name change.. Although there was an issue with our reservation, our group was seated at 6PM. In October we were treated to a lovely sunset. We were given seats near the... More

Table by the window was cozy and lovely view of Mirror Lake. My husband and I both had the Strip steak Au Poive and it was outstanding. Service was excellent and they did not rush at all. A must if you are in Lake Placid.

The hostess went out of the way to seat us at a table with a view. I requested a special order which was accommodated by the chef and was delicious. Our server Jason was very personable. It was our best dinner in Lake Placid. Definitely would go back.

Best view, service and food in all of Lake Placid! Worth the short walk or drive to restaurant. The ambiance is stunning in the beautiful mountains. The staff was very attentive. Be sure to make a reservation so you get to experience the Adirondacks in style!

Thank Dawn B
