“This Place Is Bad”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

My burger was delicious. Other than that:

There was a loud man who walked around being loud and saying obnoxious things. I assume he was the owner and thought it was a cute way to bring atmosphere to his place. It wasn't...

There was a special posted on the readerboard out front - $2 drafts.

Our table ordered $2 drafts. After we were served the waitress told us that the $2 draft was at the bar only, at the tables it was $5. (in their defense the menu says prices are subject to change anytime...)

The water girl was really creepy.

The waitress kept correcting the patrons on the way to say hoegaarden -(be happy we are buying $5 beers regardless of how we say it...)

There are no chicken dishes that don't contain mushrooms - so you non-meat eaters and non-mushroom eaters are stuck...

My girlfriend ordered a Caeser Salad. She was given a full, uncut head of romaine on a plate (exactly as you would get from the grocery store). There was a full, uncut chicken breast sitting on top of the head of romaine. There was a side of caeser dressing and croutons decorating the rim of the plate... So she had to cut her own lettuce and chicken and mix the dish herself - at a cost of $15.

This place is terrible.

“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We had a great dinner as a hockey team while attending the America cup tournament in Lake Placid! They made us a special dinner which we all enjoyed. Roger was fantastic and made sure the kids were all well fed! The service was great and I highly recommend it!

“A must stop in Lake Placid”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I've visited the restaurant on several occasions since it's reopening. Although some have complained about service, I found them very friendly. The restaurant itself as clean as they come and very decorative for the holidays. The atmosphere is perfect for a good family meal, one with friends, or i've popped in for lunch myself. I couldn't pick a favorite plate to speak about as i've yet to have anything bad from the menu.

“Beautiful presentation, great taste”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Dinner the day before New Year's Eve was beautifully presented and very tasty. The Wild Mushroom Risotto was just the right portion size. The grilled salmon was the best in Lake Placid. Our server seemed to be brand new-didn't know the bar menu or the food menu. She forgot to tell us about the specials. But she was friendly. The decor is perfect (including the well designed and very clean bathroom). Even the coat hooks are well positioned.

“Terrific Food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

My husband and I tried this newly reopened restaurant for breakfast and throughly enjoyed the experience. We returned the next night with friends for dinner and were pleasantly surprised with the excellent service (since it is newly reopened) and the food. The smoked salmon crab cakes are excellent as was the rest of dinner. The chicken dish is good as is the excellent beef braciole. You don't want to miss the perfectly cooked salmon entree. Service was once again excellent. Don't miss out on this enjoyable eating experience!
