Just outside of Lake Placid heading east on Rt 73, not much to look at from the outside but inside is nice and the menu is pretty extensive and very affordable. Someone told us this is where the locals go to get a steak but...I guess I'm spoiled living in Rochester NY where the best steaks are at Black and Blue. Steaks here seem pan fried in butter which frankly I'm not against but they didn't seem to be seasoned AT ALL. Very bland. The wife and I were salting and peppering the crap out of our steaks. You get a full meal here too meaning soup, salad, bread. Service was fantastic. I'd definitely go back but just wouldn't get a steak.More

Over the years and the many times we've frequented Joe and Coleen's place, we've never been disappointed. Joe is a great cook and Coleen runs a great restaurant. The food is always excellent. Last night Joe served me the best soup I've ever enjoyed there,...a Buffalo Chicken soup. Rich, spicy, and well-balanced. As everyone in our little village knows, that while we may be a 'Resort Town', the locals go to the Cascade Inn. That says it all!More

A family favorite for years, our son chose the Cascade Inn for his 40th birthday celebration. As always, the food, service, and ambiance are excellent. With many fine restaurants in Lake Placid, this was undoubtedly the most memorable meal of our weekend visit. Our family...always enjoys the casual rustic decor of the Cascade Inn. Our group of 18 was seated in a charming private area. A large wood-burning fireplace, knotty-pine walls, and wood-beamed ceiling give the room a toasty ambiance, especially on a cold winter night. Crisp linens, fresh curtains, white lights, snowshoes, and Adirondack art complete the look. Every dinner was absolutely scrumptious - cooked to perfection! The extensive menu, including both traditional and upscale entrees, is sure to please every taste. Our family ordered everything from prime rib, schnitzel, and chicken gruyere to ravioli, crab legs, lobster tails, and pasta with scallops and shrimp. Our dinners came with a hearty potato soup, fresh garden salad, and warm rolls. It's nice (and a bit reminiscent for the past) to have these included in the meal price, not add-ons. All of the dinners were piping-hot and served at nearly the same time - our compliments to the chef and staff! (Wine, beer, and cocktails are wonderful, too.) We found Kathleen and Stephanie, our servers, to be delightful! They both are knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Having such excellent service made the evening all the more enjoyable. The Cascade Inn never disappoints - just love this place, can't wait to come back! Many thanks to all!More

We were a party of twenty-eight friends who had reservations on Saturday night. Thank you Joe and Colleen for accommodating our group. It was Prime Rib Night and seventeen of us thoroughly enjoyed it. The others enjoyed chicken piccata, ravioli parmesan and sea scallops. Kathleen...was our server. Thank you! All of the staff were patient and attentive. We had a wonderful evening. We would love to return sometime.More

My husband and I frequently come to this restaurant as the food is consistently top notch. The staff truly cares about your experience and they are very friendly. The food is absolutely amazing – They make a homemade soup and it changes daily- always a...nice surprise to try each time we are there. (The roasted Red pepper soup is delicious!). Highly recommend this restaurant. Wendy and Brad DivineMore

Great food! Great service! Soup of the day was a loaded baked potato, yummy! Salad fresh! The prime rib is cooked to perfection! And my one daughter absolutely loved the kids baked ravioli! She gave them two thumbs up, and she’s picky.

What really stood out for us is that this place doesn't cut corners. My wife's mixed drink was carefully prepared with choice ingredients, the same as you would expect from a higher priced establishment. The cheddar jalapeno soup was delicious and not too spicy, just...as described. My salad was fresh and the blue cheese dressing had real chunks of blue cheese - far richer than the thin wimpy dressings you sometimes get. Our main courses were delicious, generously portioned, and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and attentive. At this time of Covid, they can only operate at about half of normal capacity, so do call ahead for a table. It's worth it.More

The restaurant is located a couple miles away from the center of the town and is mostly visited by the local residents. The menu is impressive and prices are very reasonable. The decor, inside and outside, needs updating but they have white tablecloths and all...the normal staples of an old fashioned steakhouse: bread basket, soup and salad included with the meal and served before the main course. Food was ok but fell a bit short of expectations when the french onion soup was too salty and the bread was falling apart, cucumbers in the salad were old and rack of lamb appeared to not be fresh. My husband had an upset stomach after and we threw the leftovers away. Overall it was ok for the price, but the impressive menu created expectations that the kitchen staff could not live up to.More

Don't let the look of the old fashioned interior put you off, because the food and service are top notch. We were there on a Saturday night when their prime rib, all you can eat until they run out, was the nightly special. The prime...rib came exactly the way I ordered it, rare, my partners was medium rare, perfect. The meat was tender and juicy. All the entrees come with a cup of soup of the day, ours was buffalo chicken soup, very good, a house salad, fresh crisp greens, and a choice of baked potato, steak fries, or rice pilaf. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. You will not feel like an outsider in this locals restaurant. If you are a craft beer drinker, you will not find any on tap here, however the mixed drinks we had were very good. You will pass this restaurant on the way into town on Rt 73 across the street from Craig Woods golf course. It's well worth the short drive back if your're staying in town.More

We always have a good meal here, away from busy Lake Placid (about 5 minute drive) Cute little restaurant with a nice bar, 8-12 tables and fireplace. There is another part of the restaurant but it isn't as cozy as the bar area. (My husband...loves their whiskey sours) You are served soup And salad with your meal. Tonight was a delicious creamy chicken and rice soup, large salad, a basket of rolls and crackers. I had the broiled sea scallops with rice. Seven very large scallops broiled in a wine sauce with yummy rice. My husband ordered the queen cut prime rib, baked potato, sour cream and horseradish. Looked and tasted delicious! (Saturday is prime rib night-there is an all you can eat king cut) Even though I was full, I had to have the strawberry shortcake. Biscuit, ice cream, whipped cream and lots and lots of strawberries! Service was excellent. Your soup is served and your salad is brought out after your soup is cleared, entree brought out after your salad is finished. Very friendly people, very good food and very good prices.More

A few miles out of town we found this little gem. It is attached to a motel in the back . I was not impressed from the outside, but looks are deceiving. The inside is very nice, and the food is even better. It is...about 4 miles east of Lake Placid , but worth the trip.More
