Fresh and original menu items complemented by a lovely view of Mirror Lake. I had salad and nachos and my son had a taco plate. Everything homemade. Loved it!!!

Had the steak tips which were excellent. My colleague had the burnt ends with no complaint. A tad pricey, but par for placid.

AWESOME venue, food, and service. Fantastic BBQ menu and huge bar. We had the patio to ourselves for cocktail hour, and the upstairs room for the reception. Everything was amazing!

Excellent Lake Placid restaurant. Great service & delicious food. Our daughter is vegetarian & had great choice for dinner which pleased her as it made a welcome change from mac & cheese. Ribs & wings were excellent.
