Delicious!!!!! We ate at other restaurants, but kept returning to Generations because the food is excellent. It was even better than the highly rated The View. Blueberry pancakes were amazing. Loved the chicken wrap, pizza, everything was delish!

Compared with other places in town, very reasonable drinks. They maintain quite a bit of distance between tables, staff were very pleasant and upbeat. Food was very good, esp breakfast .

Excellent food and well spaced out tables made us feel more at ease in these crazy times. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The burgers are top notch as was everything we tried. Well done for the friendly staff, cleanliness, food quality and well...spaced out dining.More

As always when staying at golden arrow we dine at generations. Food is always great, and they go ABOVE and beyond for our daughter who suffers from food allergies. The chef made her meal tailored to her needs (she wanted a burger) made sure it...was cooked separately, used a safe bun, and even made her special bacon on the side that wasn’t prepared yet because she wanted a bacon burger! Special unseasoned baked potato, thank you to whoever the chef was New Year’s Eve! It’s always so nice when someone actually cares. We will always keep coming back to generations for years to come!!!More

Nice restaurant on the Main Street. Lake placid lacks choice in food. Went there for lunch and loved my Jack rabbit salad.

Right in the center of town, with water view. Casual with excellent big warm pretzels and loved the “German Cuban” sandwich. Really tasty! Delicious French onion soup. Nice craft beers on tap. Nice service too!

The food Was fresh, well prepared, properly presented and delicious. the service was very prompt and pleasant. The atmosphere was a bit bland but to their credit social distancing was achieved. Most importantly EVER STAFF MEMBER WORE A MASK!!! This was a huge plus, thank...you!!! We have to take our masks off to eat, thus putting ourselves at risk, you wearing your mask makes a huge difference in protecting us.More

What a great place to eat. We were visiting from Las Vegas. Family of 6 and there was something for everyone. Happy hour was great... The wings were awesome. Never had poutine like that before but the kids loved them. Everyone was happy with the...food. Large portions. We sat outside on the patio and the atmosphere and weather were perfect. I wish I could remember our servers name, but he was very nice and personable. We will definitely eat there again on our trip back next year.More

We were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled in to eat some dinner while exploring the Main St area. Unique and tasty options to choose from - you will not be disappointed!! Beautiful ambiance, great food, and great location! The German onion soup was delicious and...we really enjoyed the pretzel buns.More
