Our visit was a real mixed bag. The food was very good, the service very slow. Hence the average score. The restaurant itself is very nice with a lovely lounge area at the bar : there is also a games room with pool. The menu...More

We had broken water pipes on 17 places and in the peak winter season this is the worst that happen. Obviously this negative review is not helping us in this time of disaster. There are several other restaurants in Lake Placid that have the same...More

This location has hosted eating and drinking establishments since the 1950s. The cellar is the latest incarnation, and just about the only Lake Placid restaurant offering German cuisine, beer and drinks. My wife's rouladen came with a twist - fresh, pickled vegetables buried in the...More

Renovations are amazing... a cozy and beautiful nook! Perfect for Aprés Ski! Deck has a wonderful AND secluded view of the high peaks. Enjoyed the Jager Schniztel and French Onion Bites. Great to see Chef Keith in Lake Placid.

We thought we would give this restaurant a try as it is the only place advertising German Food in the area. What a disappointment. Schnitzel is supposed to be pounded so thin that it literally melts in your mouth. There were about two choices of...More

The Cellar is a pleasant and very cozy place. The food was excellent and the highlight is that the chef was happy to stop by and explain what the meals are about, where he gets his ingredients (farm to table, using locally grown produce), what...More

An interesting menu presented by a chef is always a plus. Some meals were delicious. While the location is not walking distance for most in LP, the views are nice. Secluded lounge area by the bar is a winner for a smaller groups of people...More
