“Mirror Lake dining at its best !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

On Friday August 1, to make a perfect Adirondack evening my wife and I tried the Lake Placid Club Boat House Restaurant on Mirror Lake Drive. This restaurant was a recommendation from a work colleague. We sat outside on the large extending deck over the water of Mirror Lake. Some people were still swimming and boating which made it very entertaining. The surrounding mountains added to the view. From the menu, I had the Crab Cakes, jumbo lump crab sautéed with house spices, panko bread crums and grilled corn, mashed potatoes with Acadian-style market vegetables. My wife had the shrimp plate, grilled garlic-herb marinated shrimps on linguini noodles with market vegetables. All this excellent food with a cold bottle of Lindeman Chardonnay. Service from our waitress Chelsea was very efficient. The ambiance was very nice and the sunset over Mirror Lake made it even more delightful. We would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

“Nice view nice servers okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Some of the food was good,but not great. The carrots were served almost raw and when I sent them back they did not arrive until I finished the rest of my dish ( and they were steamed with no taste). My martini had no kick.
The filet mignonette was cooked to my liking.
Great view / uneven service.

“Beautiful setting on Mirror. Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We had dinner outside overlooking the Lake. The setting is beautiful and the dining was pleasant and not noisy as can be the case at some outside venues. The menu gave many good options and the prices were very reasonable. We all enjoyed our choices and we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I visited the Boat House and had a very good experience. We came in around 5.30 and were seated right away. And the service was very quick and attentive.
The drinks were good the food was awesome and the view was fantastic.
