On Thursday Sept. 24th, my wife and I visited "The Wild Center". When we were leaving, we asked 2 staff members where to go for a great cup of coffee, highly recommended Well Dressed Food. The time was 4:15 p.m., and staff person Goggled to...make sure of the operating hours ( 9 a.m. - 8 p.m.) Well, doors were locked and place was dark,, nice!! How does a restaurant close-up 4 hours early?? Extremely disappointing....... g'nite!!More

I wanted to grab something quick and eat at the Muni Park to watch the sunset. I ordered a Greek Salad w Chicken and Onion Rings. The Greek Salad had mixed greens, calmata olives, feta, artichoke, peppers and chicken. Absolutely fantastic. The OR batter was...one of the best I have ever tasted. I will go back again. And again.More

My husband & I tried lunch here for the 1st time today. The online ordering was very easy & our order was ready in 10 minutes. We both order the chicken parm panini & it was excellent! The chips that came with the sandwich were...also good. Tupper lake was right around the corner & we took our to go order there to eat. Will be a returning customer when we are in the area again.More

The well dressed turkey club and the gyro were both outstanding. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is very friendly. We would highly recommend stopping in even if it’s out of the way. We will definitely be back

Really - a 35 minute wait in mid afternoon for a burger and cheese sandwich? No veg sandwich options - and the over-priced sandwiches come with a pickle only - no chips. Apparently only the burgers are well-dressed enough to deserve chips. Lots of staff...scurrying around, but no service. And no masks- yikes! I wanted to love this place as someone who has worked in small restaurants. Save your money - and your patience - and go elsewhere.More

There is a sign on the door saying wear a mask but none of the employees are wearing masks. I was sick to my stomach after I realized that the person taking my order didn’t have a mask on.

Saranac Lake was mobbed from tourism to the ice castle so we decided that we would find lunch further on our trek heading back to CNY from the ADK. We were thrilled to find Well Dressed Food on Trip Advisor and even more thrilled to...find they were OPEN ON A WINTER SUNDAY!!! Then we got there and found an amazing store front with radiators, wooden floors and a counter that looked as if we just might have been transported back 50 years! We chose table service with a nice front window seat. They have a great menu and put out a couple of damn good burgers made from local beef! I saw some amazing looking salads being made and I think next time I will try one of those. French fries were cooked to perfection and washed down with a fabulous local brewery draft IPA! From what we saw and had to eat, I don't see how you can possibly go wrong with stopping here and eating local! This is one of those rare tripadvisor reviews where I wish there was a sixth star because this place just did it all great! Atmosphere, cleanliness, service, food and so much charm! Don't miss the cute bathroom they have going on too!!More

We went in for breakfast and the place is absolutely beautiful! My boyfriend and I ordered the bagel with smoked salmon with the works! It was fabulous! We got the everything bagel and it was actually good and fresh (not bad for being far from...NJ). It was the perfect amount of salmon, the perfect amount of cream cheese, and the perfect amount of fixins! The smoked salmon was of good quality. I remember when this place just started years ago, in a smaller location, just selling fancy sauces, dips, and such! Place now is really WOW! I can't wait until our next visit to try more! I am really happy for them and I really wish them good luck!More

We found this restaurant a few years back on our way home from Lake Placid and simply loved it. We were finally able to stop here again today and the food was just as good as we remembered. The location is easy to find with...plenty of parking on the street outside the restaurant. The service was really friendly and even with my wife and I customizing our orders, they got everything correct the first time. I had the turkey club and my wife selected the bagels with salmon. Both were amazing. As an added bonus, they sell a selection of bakery items which are also top notch. This is an easy recommendation for anyone passing through Tupper lake. We will return!More
