Excellent service and food. Had baby back ribs and they fell off the bones. Nice clean establishment. Good system for waiting list... You can walk around town and they Text you when your table is ready. Great place to eat.

Thank Cindy D

We ate an early dinner at Smoke Signals and it was a great choice. The view was awesome from our table and the food was delicious. We enjoyed everything from the nachos to the ribs to the garlic mashed potatoes. The portions were generous and the service was great. We would definitely recommended Smoke Signals!!!

Every dish/side dish that was ordered was amazing: recipes well thought and tested (duck fat fries, cole slaw, salad, ribs, awesome moonshine cocktales). We are so happy we get to enjoy this place. Awesome photographs of rock groups is decorating the walls. Professionalism at its best. Service was impeccable. We are coming back. Support this restaurant!!!

Stopped by this place for dinner on our last night in Lake Placid based on some good Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We were immediately seated (we went early on a Tuesday night) and I had requested to be by the windows on the lake and the host accommodated us. Our server, Jason, was friendly and helpful. He brought us corn bread while we waited and our meals came fairly quickly - very large portions for what you pay. $14.00 for the BBQ tacos gets you three large tacos and the best French fries. Our son ordered the pulled pork and garlic mashed which he loved but couldn't finish. The veggie burger was a good deal for $12.00. Only draw back - there seemed to only be one bathroom for each gender on the main floor and a fairly long line to get into it - given the size of the place and the fact it was a bar, thought this was a bit strange. Perhaps there were more upstairs. Anyway - would definitely recommend this one for carnivores and vegetarians alike!

We had just arrived in Lake Placid and wanted to find some place good for dinner. There are so many places to eat, but we decided upon Smoke Signals. It is in the heart of downtown, easy parking..

We had about a 30 minute wait, so we parked ourselves at the bar. Beer and wine was excellent. I had the J Lohr Cypress Chardonnay and my husband had a milk stout which he liked alot.

We were soon seated to our table. There are a few tables that overlook Mirror Lake and our table was a bit back from the main windows but we still had a nice view.

Our waitress soon came over and explained about the different types of sauces that were available for the ribs. We each ordered 1/2 rack of ribs with the house salad. Before the mains arrived, cornbread was brought to the table. I am a bit fussy on cornbread, and although this was good, it was a bit on the sweet side.

No sooner than we popped the cornbread into our mouths, our ribs arrived. My husband had them with the Habanero sauce and I had them with the house sauce. My husband liked the ribs, but they were not the best he has ever had. I thought the sauce was too sweet and not enough bbq flavor in it. They were okay, not over the top. The service was excellent.
