Breakfast is extraordinarily good - we are excited to get up every morning to try something different. Room service was also yummy - burgers and turkey sandwiches. There bread is out of this world, as is their fresh creamery butter and syrup. Enjoy!

Great food, large portions. We went with friends and they loved it. Also kid friendly without being too basic. The wine list offered new york options and the staff was very helpful in warning us not to over order (which we did anyway, it all sounded so good). Would go back next trip.

This restaurant is in a very traditional style Adirondack lodge. The dining room is like a great hall with log beams, mounted hunting trophies, big fireplaces and large furniture. There is a view looking out onto Whiteface Mountain. So the atmosphere is quite stunning, but you go to a restaurant to eat and while the food was good, it wasn't outstanding. The market specials were better than the menu item I had which the wait staff recommended, but which I thought was so-so. They didn't get our dessert order right, but other than that the service was good. Not the best place we went to in Lake Placid. I expected better given the upscale venue and prices.

I needed an ATM to get cash to pay for my $12.00, 10 Oz??? Bloody Mary. Obtw, this was even after I was asked if I wanted Ketel 1 or Grey Goose and I said, just the House Vodka please, after all, we are talking about a Bloody.

We went to Kanu last night for our engagement dinner. We were a group of 6 and we all enjoyed our dinner. The atmosphere in the great restaurant can't be beat. The woodwork from top to bottom is stunning. The service was prompt and professional and the food was definitely a treat. I ordered the lobster and crab cake and it was delicious. My fiance ordered the filet and savored every morsel. After dinner we went to the pub area and had a glass of wine and got to enjoy the live music which finished off the night beautifully!!! We will, for sure, be back!!
