They offer something for everyone. Mixed drinks, local beers, wine & cordials. A varied changing menu all served in a cute water front location served with smiles... We had the chilli & baked brie to start things off with a couple of Vermont brewed beers....More

Enjoyed a slice of delicious quich and house salad while overlooking the lake- a great way to unwind and relax. Tea was overpriced, and the small but cozy and eccentric environment was busy and noisy, but was still an enjoyable stop.

The cottage which is part if the Mirror Lake Inn has beautiful view of Mirror Lake and is right on the lake. The food was very good and not overly expensive.

With one of the best views in Lake Placid, this quaint and cozy bar/restaurant is a favorite with us. The outside patios are wonderful additions. Sometimes if you are lucky they will have live music.More

The Cottage has the best view of the lake in Lake Placid. Their sandwiches are good and their beer selection is alright; however, I think for the price the sandwiches could be better or bigger...you pay for the view, really, but the view is worth...More
