As someone who comes from a hospitality background, please avoid this place if you want good service and a professional staff. My 10 minute impression on two occasions trying to secure a table was quite troubling to say the least. The young man who attempted to fill the role of host didn't have a clue. Try mirror lake inn instead.

Had a fabulous meal on a recent Monday night. I had the salmon & my husband had the pork chop. Both were excellent. I observed other diners who also seemed to appreciate their meal. It was a nice relaxing meal on their covered porch. Our waiter was not as informative as another of the wait staff was. Maybe he was new?

This was a great find! The food was delicious and creative, excellent wine selection and the outdoor heated terrasse was the perfect spot to enjoy our meal. Very friendly service; will definitely go back the next time we're in Lake Placid!

This is a lovely lakefront atmosphere with all kinds of unique little tapas type eats. It was relaxed and comfortable and great for wine lovers like myself!

We arrived at 3.30pm just as they were taking down the lunch board but we got a very friendly welcome. We were a group of four and all chose a different meal, all were marvellous. We had the burger, the lobster and avocado roll, the filet mignon baguette and the turkey panini. The Blue Moon beer is definitely worth a pint or two. Even though the staff were getting ready for the evening service our waitress was very cheerful and helpful.
