My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Brown Dog. Other than the 20 minute wait for a table to become available, we had a very enjoyable culinary experience. The service was impeccable, the food was wonderful and the wine selection was quite impressive. We shall return again in the very near future. Be sure to make reservations.

We stumbled in this Cafe after walking past the night before and literally drooling at the scents wafting out. We ate dinner here and it was unbelievable. The portions are generous and the flavors delectable! I had the NY Strip, cooked to perfection and the cracked pepper mashed potatoes were heaven. My husband had the 4 cheese Mac and it was so rich!
Can I also mention the wine was da-'vin'! The service was fantastic as well, I 1000% recommend this restaurant!

The restaurant ambiance, service and food were absolutely outstanding. Scallops were amazing, and finally a place with nice, reasonable portions (we're Canadian on top of that). The service was great, the staff knew their wine. We totally recommend it!

My family and I visited Lake Placid in January. We had lunch at the BD and my husband and I really enjoyed the fresh tasty food. The staff was great with my kids. My girls still talk about them. We made reservations for diner and it was fantastic and fun also. Their dining room is small so be sure to call to get dinner reservations. Great food Great Staff and wonderful food.

Strike the WIne Bar from this place or maybe a more apt description since you can not even order a piece of cheese. I pictured a nice cold winter night, wolf moon, wine and cheese at the bar. I was informed I needed a reservation. I am sending them a box of Velvetta!

We felt so bad after reading your review of us.It wasn't really a review.It was how we were too busy, for you to get a table. For that I am so sorry. We only have 8 tables in The Brown Dog and each table we take time and care with. We don't need any Velvetta, that was just nasty and hurtful. We work very hard for each customer to have a beautiful dinner. I am sorry you couldn't experience that with us.
