If you want a casual place to eat with great food, this is it. We eat here every time we visit And are always awed by the food. We especially love the lobster bisque and clam chowder with the hot bread. The service is great. A charming place with wonderful food.

Kept customers happy and the fire roaring. The food was cooked to perfection (I got rare - perfect,... More

We've been twice. The first time I had the prime rib, which was pretty good. The second time I had the surf and turf (NY Strip and Lobster tail) which was quite disappointing. The menu advertised it as Maine lobster, but it was definitely a tropical spiny lobster tail. It was not nearly as flavorful and very dry. The NY... More

This was an absolutely fabulous meal. The steak melted in your mouth, the salad was fresh/plentiful/tasty and the bread with whipped butter was perfectly warm, fluffy with a crunchy outside and so tasty! The waitress and staff were so friendly and professional as well. The ambiance of the place with the rustic decor and fireplace was so cozy and the... More

We've been back time and again. Absolute best best best prime rib every single time. Tender, flavorful, consistent. So often when we order at other steak houses, the steak comes and you throw nearly half away. Not here. This is lean, maybe 7% fat. Great value, warm atmosphere, we won't go anywhere else in Lake Placid. Sometimes we drive the... More

Haley was out server and she was very friendly. We were seated out in the area at the roadside with lots of windows, the heat was on so it wasn't too bad temperature wise, and it was -30F when we visited. We shared potato skins and each had the ribs (1/2 rack) and fry basket. I've seen reviews that say... More
