“Great atmosphere, friendly waitstaff, average food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We spent a week at the beautiful Whiteface Lodge. If we had not eaten in so many fine restaurants elsewhere in LP, we would have been fine here at Kanu. We ate breakfast here a few times, the food was good but not spectacular. We ate dinner in the lounge - pizza and salads. Again, all good, but nothing memorable. The waitstaff was always very attentive and helpful and the atmosphere at Kanu is truly beautiful.

“Great Meal”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Pretty good food here, including the breakfast. We dine here when staying on property which makes it very easy. Nice selection of fresh fish and meats, making it a good choice for most any one in the party.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I had the pork chops, they came out pink, which would have been fine, but they were extremely tough, so I sent them back to cook them more, and they were still tough and inedible. My brother had the rib steak, which was over $40 and was about 1/2 thick. He said it was good, but at that price it should have been an 1 1/2 thick. Husband had the salmon and he said it was just ok. Sorry. Ripoff for the steak. Sides were just ok. Not impressed with this restaurant for dinner at all. Didnt even stay for dessert. Breakfast here in the morning which was included in our stay was great, eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, bagels, pastries great, nice fruit bar. Coffee was great as well. No complaints for breakfast. Service for dinner and breakfast was superb.

“Great service but you pay for it.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

The service and food was great this was my second time eating here. But I think you can find the same great service and food elsewhere in town for a lower price. I would recommend this place for the wow factor if that what you going for.
