The food, especially the bread & cornbread, was amazing. The soup options were terrific, too! The view was amazing and sitting by the window watching the hummingbirds was just breathtaking. You would never think such a simple menu could be so excellent, but it is and it's stood the test of time for good reason.

“Used to be a favorite, not any more.”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

I have been eating at the restaurant for well over 20 years. I am sad to say that it has been going down hill for the last 6-8 years. Soup is not nearly as good as is used to be. At my last visit, I even had to ask that mine be heated in the microwave to get it above room temperature. The three good things that remain at the Baldpate are the blue cheese dressing, the views, and the rustic ambiance.
Sad to say, I do not recommend any more.

“Where we take our guests”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

I love coming here for lunch. The home made soup, salads, and deserts are fantastic! Not only do you get a meal in a historic place, but there are humming birds right outside of your windows. There are interesting photos of famous people (NOT currant pop culture).

“A Little Too Pretentious”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Historic old hotel with lunch service to the public, which is what we did. The offerings are soup, salad and some baked goods. Not really worth going so far out of the way, which this place is. Charming place with great views, but we would probably not return.

“A+ for Nostalgia, C+ for food”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

This is a very unique off-the-beaten-track restaurant in a beautiful rustic mountain setting. The "worlds largest key collection" might sound a bit strange but it's actually quite interesting. You get the feeling that your grandparents could have eaten here (as little children) and seen the same restaurant furniture and wall decorations as we do today.
On the other hand, the soup & salad bar was pretty expensive for food that was rather ordinary. I tried to convince myself that the soups and breads were outstanding and well worth the price but in truth the selection and taste were not that impressive.
The Baldpate is unique enough I want to keep coming back, but the food price and quality keep me from doing it too often.
