Visited for the first time September 19, 2012. Your quintessential touristy restaurant on Main Street, with all the Adirondack’ish decor.It looks small, but there is alot a space plus a patio, the brewery is in the back for visiting. I had two beers, Belgian Summer Ale and Whiteface Black Diamond Stout, all nice, but my beef is the lack of info on the beer menu, more specifically only one or two beers with quantity availability and no prices. Speaking of prices, the food is not cheap, but my steak was very tasty and cook to my liking. Our waiter was very nice and helpful, I don’t know about is beer knowledge, but I never do anyway. The best part was your choice of free shakers with different logos. I may go back, but for beer only!

Had lunch here the 2nd day of our trip. The Adirondacker steak sandwich was great and very large. (some people might split it for lunch) The place was well kept up and clean. The 7 beer sampler was $14. One pint was $6. It was a rainy day so we ate inside. I’ll come back sometime.

Went here back in February 2010 and tried all their beers. Had amazing service and a great time. The beers were all way above what you would expect from a typical brew pub. Went back yesterday (12-26-10) and was equally as impressed. Haven’t had the food but go specifically for the beer. Cozy and woody feel inside. The bar is small and tucked in the back. Same bartender as I had in February, Tom. He was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. They take pride in their beers here. Roaring fire outside and inside. 8 beers on tap ($4-$5). Open 365 days a year and always packed for dinner.Didn’t see any other beers available (Bottle/tap) but why would you want one when they have such great beer? I loved their Fry’s Rye "Roggenbier" (5.5%) and their "’Tis the Saison (7.4%). Unique winter/seasonal takes on traditional hefe/rye and saison styles, Stellar! Then enjoyed their Adirondack Abbey Ale (7.2%) and the Whiteface Black Diamond Stout (6.4%). These are both award winning beers (GABF, gold & silver). Awesome beers here. The brew master is even working on barrel aging and contemplating distribution. This is a must stop if your in the area and even worth a drive to check it out if your into good beer! If I had to choose one negative, it would be that all their beers are served in pint glasses (aside from their barley wine).

Located in the middle of town. This is primarily a restuarant with the bar tucked away in the back corner. The bar area is cozy but not quite the brewpub feel you would expect. There is also a patio with a nice view of Main St. We found seats in the bar area and had a choice of about 7-8 beers on tap. The bartender seems quite knowledgeable about the brews on tap. I started with the Ausable Wulff Red Ale which complimented my meal. I then switched to the John Brown Pale Ale which really hit the spot, and had a couple of these. Depending on the season they are open for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with a menu tailored to that time of day. Menu has a good variety. Prices a bit above average but considering your in Lake Placid they are quite reasonable. Worth a visit if passing through the area.

A classy turn of the century chalet in Lake Placid, right in the middle of the Adirondack park. Very woodsy decor. Friendly service if a bit innatentive. I didnt eat there but noticed the portions were generous. Beers are OK to quite good. Pricy sampler at 7 4 ounces for 12$.

Large restaurant located in the middle of Lake Placid with a great view on Main Street. We stop by for lunch and patio was full though there was some room inside. Waiter was quiet attentive and ready to answer question on the beers available that day. Selection was pretty good ranging from some session type beer to more Belgian-style (abbey Dubbel, Saison). The food we ordered was good (not great thought) and prices were reasonable considering the numbers of tourist on the area. The beers are of fair quality and I would definitely stop again if I was in town again.

Food was good. Would recommend the port ice cream dessert. Beer was adequate to good. Had the sampler. Service was quick and solid. Wife bought the Abbey Dubbel and it was served at the wrong temperature in the wrong style glass. Still the best beer on tap.

Établissement visité le 9 juillet vers 15h après une randonnée sur le mont Ampersand. Ambiance: Restaurant décoré avec des antiquités. Présence d’une grande terrasse sur le côté. Pour ma part j’étais dans le petit bar à l’intérieur. Le bar est constitué de 4-5 tables de deux et du comptoir. L’ambiance du bar était bien car nous avons pu écouter la finale de la Coupe du Monde de soccer entre la France et l’Italie. Service: Malheureusement nous nous sommes fait refusé l’accès à la terrasse car elle est supposément réservé aux clients qui prennent un repas. J’ai commandé un plateau de dégustation et la serveuse m’a très bien expliqué les styles et ma remise un dépliant pour plus de détail. Sélection: Lors de notre visite 7 bières étaient au menu ainsi qu’une root beer maison. Nourriture: Le restaurant est de type steak et fruit de mer mais je n’ai pas consulté le menu. (14e rating d’établissement)

WATCH YOUR BILL: 18% gratuity is AUTOMATICALLY added to your bill - even to the take-out growlers! I doubt I would even have given 15% because the service was SO SLOW. I ordered the soup & sandwich ($7.95) for lunch and the 7 samplers ($5.25). The service was EXTREMELY slow - it took 30 minutes to take our food order and an additional 40 minutes to be served. I liked the Abbey Dubbel the most and ordered their German Growler ($32). Essentially, I was charged an additional $5.75 for a take-out growler (totaling ~$38) because of the 18% gratuity. I hope you enjoyed the nearly $8 tip, waiter Patrick, its the last you’ll get from me! Avoid this tourist trap.
