“Good food and beer”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

The food, beer, and atmosphere are great; we look forward to stopping by whenever we make it up to Lake Placid. The food can take a while but its a busy place. We went with 6 adults and 1 18 year old, all the adults had 2 to 3 beers each but the 18 yr old was never offered a refill on her water but beer refills were right on time, also one of the adults was never brought the water he asked for. The service could be better and certainly friendlier.

“Nice brewery!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went for lunch. I had a pork sandwich, was really good, my husband had a steak sandwich, was really good. We both had beer made right there, really good. Price was reasonble for everthing. You could see where the beer was made and you could buy it to take home. It was a little crowded but they are fixing the third floor for more space. It is walking distance from main street.

“Very good, but very long waits”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Lake Placid. I'm not a beer drinker, but many compliments about it. Everything was very good, except the wait. If you want to get here about 5:45, you could expect to eat around 5:20. If you get there about 6:45-7:00, expect about a 2 hour wait. As most every other restaurant in Lake Placid, they charge 2.50 for a Coke, and for every refill.
Overall- very good.

(Wouldn't suggest for small children as it is pretty loud downstairs, in the waiting area+ bar, where you will probably be for a while)

“Definitely worth the visit, but long waiting times due to the popularity”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

There is definitely a reason why this pub is rated so well. It makes its own beer, which is not bad at all, it offers a good variety of food on the menu, the service is courteous and it is really for everyone. I saw a lot of families coming in with their kids, since the ambiance is quite reasonable for everyone. The waiting times are long regardless of the time of the day, but I mean, it is popular, so what do you expect? At least you can wait downstairs in the bar and not outside or on the stairs.
