“Good food and excellent beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Lake Placid Brewery is a must do when going to LP. The food is good, but the brews are excellent. They are known for their Ubu Ale, but I highly recommend trying the IPA as well. Expect a wait on any given weekend, but you can always sit at the bar and enjoy a cold one.

“Great Pub Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have enjoyed every meal that I have eaten at this establishment. It has a great atmosphere and the employees are always very polite. It does get quite busy at times, but I never felt overwhelmed by the crowds as there is a great and relaxing atmosphere in this pub.

The menu is what you would expect to find at a typical pub. However, the food is by no means sub-par. Every meal is quite tasty even if it is a simplistic offering such as a soup, sandwich/wrap, or fish and chips. The last time I went I had the "brewer's lunch" which is essentially grilled cheese with a cup of their daily soup and it was excellent.

Their beer selection is really the main draw for myself. I love craft beers and I always enjoy trying the seasonal beers on tap. They always have a good selection of light and dark beers, and the prices are quite reasonable.

Whenever I am in Lake Placid, NY this is my go-to place, because I love the food, beer, and the relaxing vibe of the pub.

“Our Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Lake Place Pub & Brewery is definitely our FAVORITE place to dine, relax and have a few drinks. The food is excellent, the service exemplary, and the beer is outstanding (Dr. Fogg's Oatmeal Stout is my personal fave)! Everyone at the pub is super friendly, courteous and helpful. Even when the pub is busy you still get your meal (and beverages) quickly. Every time we are in town the pub is our must-stop place.

“Great after a day of skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This pub was very nice, especially after a day of skiing! The atmosphere was relaxed, food was good, and prices were reasonable. I had never been to this pub before but had there beer in the past and enjoyed that. My husband and I just wanted a nice small dinner before starting home from skiing (a 3hour drive and we didn't want fast food). This was wonderful, a good menu with lots of choices, great beer choices too. The prices are very good, especially when coming from a ski resort! If you want a nice place with good food, this is it. If you want high end atmosphere, small servings with glitz and glamour, and prices to match... don't go here.

“Great beer, food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Not much else to say. We will be back. The four of us had very different meals (shepard's pie, fish n chips, Cajun chicken sandwich and supreme nachos) and buffalo wings as an app. Everyone was happy!
