Ask for Jason (aka Jake) as a server! He is great! Fried calamari as an appetizer. Amazing! Light on the breeding, cornmeal based, and not overbearing. The aioli dip was a perfect level of accent. Peppercorn steak for an entree. The brandy sauce was a compliment not a cover up. Definitely try the Yukon gold sweet potato blend - great... More

I did not want to share how much I love this place, in order to protect it from overcrowding. For several years in a row we dine here during our family ski vacations. Every member of our family has their favorite meals in this restaurant: soups and Cesar salad - my kids' favorites, scallops - my husband's, fish tacos -... More

Pre booked this before leaving the uk. It was busy when we arrived there at 7.30pm. The food was ok but nothing special. Disappointed the clam chowder had sold out so early in the evening. The location is a 5 min drive (hotel has a courtesy bus) from the hotel overlooling the lake...a wonderful serting

By arriving before 6 we had a perfect view from a window table. Helpful server described menu items and mad good suggestions. We really enjoyed the side salad and salad dressings. We enjoyed our entrees and all had dessert. We will definitely eat here again.

Perfect romantic set up. Also well equipped for families. Food was excellent. Try the chicken breast on arugula and tomatoes! Service was perfect.

The service was poor as the waiter was distracted and overworked. The restaurant had a sense of entitlement that was not earned. I had the salmon which was overlooked. My husband had a very meager portion of five tiny scallops which were very tasty. The calamari appetizer was very good. Excellent view but diappointing meal for our 25 th anniversary.

We arrived when the restaurant opened at 5 p.m. on a Wednesday and left after sunset. We had a great rable with a panoramic view of Mirror Lake. The restaurant filled up rapidly after we arrived. For appetizers we shared the French onion soup and the seared tuna wonton; for entrees we had the rainbow trout and garden shrimp pasta;... More

This was my second time having dinner here, and I cant find one thing to complain about. The view out the windows and across the lake, especially in fall, is beautiful. Watching the sun go down and the lake change in colors is really spectacular. This restaurant is on the other side of the lake away from the bustle of... More

My wife and I picked the Boat House Restaurant (Lake Placid Club, Lake Placid NY) for a special dinner (her birthday) on a relatively warm, mostly sunny afternoon/evening, and we could not have been more satisfied. The restaurant had just opened when we came through the door; we received immediate seating in a choice location – one of the window... More

Our bus trip from NJ included this etsablishment for our final night's dinner. BTW, it is called the Lake Placid Club Boat House--think there may have been a slight name change.. Although there was an issue with our reservation, our group was seated at 6PM. In October we were treated to a lovely sunset. We were given seats near the... More
