“Amazing find - great food, no pretentious BS, open late”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2010

We couldnt believe that a place like Lake Placid has no restaurants serving food after 10:00 on a Saturday night. AFter striking out everywhere else, we were on our way back to our hotel when we passed Lisa G's. Not only were they still open, but the food was ridiculously good, the service was great, and my bourbon on the rocks was generous to say the least. Recommendations: Pulled pork sandwich, Tuna Sandwich, Goat cheese salad.

“Great spot!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2010

Great spot by the river and good beer selection. The food was very good, my husbands pork chop was a little bland or I would have said excellent. I had the pulled pork and YUMMMM it was good!!!! Sitting out on the deck was great weather was perfect and the sound of the river below made for a perfect evening:-)

“Surprise for goodness.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2010

Busy place with some very unusual offerings. Owner really has control of this scene. Food was above average and not overpriced. The fact that it is busy with locals tells you something.

“Great for vegetarians and carnivores alike!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

We were pleased to discover Lisa G and its eclectic menu. My daughter and I are vegetarians which can pose a challenge when traveling. So we were thrilled to discover a large number of vegetarian options on the menu but noted that most diners around us were enjoying what looked to be some wonderfully juicy burgers.

The menu included a number of unusual items. We loved the edamame dip with fried wontons as an appetizer. The vegetable burger was unique, very tasty but a little messy to eat without a fork and knife. The fries were excellent and the salads quite good, other than the house salad (the balsamic vinaigrette was very sharp and acidic.)

It was lovely dining on the outdoor terrace overlooking the falls. I would be much more reluctant to dine indoors during a rainy day or during the winter as the interior decor struck me as rather dark and depressing.

“Not out cup of tea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2010

Based on these reviews, we opted to eat here one night while in Lake Placid at the end of June. We were not impressed. Hubby ordered eggplant parm which he said was terrible and he would not eat and I chose a burger. The burger was good but certainly not outstanding. The place was pretty empty when we arrived but we still had to wait a long time before a server came to us. We also were not impressed with the wines. There are better places to eat in Lake Placid.
