“good surprise”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

something new and different in Lake Placid. Pub atmosphere without TVs . Decor is very clever without seeming
overdone. Very comfortable mix of locals and tourists lucky enough to find it. THE MENU ..really unbelievable .
Small plates of Creative and thoughtful food. The liquids are equally intriguing. Yes ! go there.

“Creative French Canadian Food in Lake Placid”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Really interesting food. creative combinations of ingredients, often playful. Don't forget a side of their charred brussel sprouts. Great service. They make great drinks, but be careful. They're strong. Right now, if you don't want to spend $100/per person, this is the place to get the best food in Lake Placid.

“hipsters”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I read the reviews and was intrigued, I am glad we went! First glance noticing the staff and patrons I felt very "uphip" but after 2 beers I didn't care anymore! Our waitress was very helpful and friendly, especially when it came to beer selection. My dinner and dessert were not great (ravioli and brulee- fatty bacon pieces in the brulee did not agree with me) but my husband had fried pork liver (sounds scary I know) and it was DELICIOUS! The brussel sprouts were interesting-some sort of spice that was really strong at times. But the beer was fabulous-even you aren't an adventourous eater, try different beers-you will not be disappointed. I wish there was a place like this near home!

“Bacon Chocolate Crème Brûlée, are you kidding me??”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My husband and were in Lake Placid for five days and were on a mission to never eat at the same place twice during that time. Had we tried Liquids and Solids on any night besides our last one in town, we would have been forced to abort the mission. The service, atmosphere and most importantly, the food were just what I was looking for. If you're a beer lover, the beer list is five pages long. A great selection of mixed drinks as well. The menu is creative and perfectly executed. We will be making the two hour drive back to Lake Placid just so we can eat here again.

“The drinks are killer and the food is great!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I loved finding out that this place is so great! The drink I had was fantastic it was gin based served in a huge glass and really refreshing, but not too much alcohol.
The drink menu was as large as the food, and so fun to read.
I had the duck! So Good! I could have used some more food but ate the fried brussel sprouts my friend had, my gosh they were so good...the swordfish was a super delight too. Loved it all!! Was
fun and we will go back as soon as we can.
