We ate at the Interlaken inn on Saturday February 6. Food varied from good to great; salads were good, my filet mignon was fabulous, my husbands veal was good. The valrohna cake for dessert was delicious. Great selection of wines on half bottles. When we called to book and then change the reservation the person answering the phone was not very pleasant, unusually abrupt. We considered changing the reservation, but decided to keep it and just laugh it off if the waitstaff was rude. When we came there one of the waiters looked really grumpy... luckily we got another one who was fine (not great, but definitely OK). The location and house is pretty. The interior is OK, could be classier but is fine.

Live on upper east side in New York and eat out a lot.

We had dinner here in the bar, which is cute and small.Not much to look at. Waiter was full of himself and bragging which got old listening to.
But, the prices! OMG! $15.00 for New England Clam Chowder!!!? You have to be kidding! Portions were not huge. The Mac and Cheese didn't have much taste. The steak sandwich was a joke, for the price.
It is just a lovely Inn. I liked the Lake Placid Lodge much better!

We had our first Valentine's Day supper at The Interlaken. We reserved at the last minute and they graciously accomodated us with a slightly earlier sitting. We were seated in a semi-private area by a window. We found the ambiance very romantic and welcoming. The staff were very attentive, personable and knowledgeable as to their wine list. The food was wonderful. Based on this experience we have been back several times and have not been disappointed. This restaurant is ideal for people who enjoy great food in a intimate and non-pretentious setting.

We are in Lake Placid for a three-family vacation and the adults were looking for a casual evening out. A local resident recommended we go to the Interlaken Inn and ask to sit in the Monkey Bar. The evening was perfect: the setting, the food, our server Mark, the wines...all added up to a five-star evening. In the Monkey Bar you can select from the more casual pub menu (pulled pork sandwich was great) or the fancier restaurant menu (the rainbow trout was a hit). The desserts were heavenly as well. ENJOY!

My wife, two children and I are visiting from out of town. We went to the Interlaken on the recommendation of a local merchant. [He also recommended the Brown Dog and we had an excellent dinner there.] We had a wonderful meal at the Interlaken. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The staff was very attentive and professional. The food was terrific. We came back the next night, selected different entrees and had another wonderful meal.
