2013-04-30. Had lunch at Lake Placid Brewery where neither the food nor the beer particularly impressed, but were okay. The food was decent, we had a pizza and a chicken sandwich. A bit of an upscale spin on pub grub but wasnít anything special. Nice-ish view from the patio of the lake. Lots of sports memorabilia and banners on the wall. Super quiet when we were there. The Ubu Ale is my favorite of their beers. Definitely worth a stop while you are in town but not necessarily a destination unto itself.
Visited for the first time September 19, 2012. Twice, before and after supper. Nice looking place with a view of Mirror Lake, off the Main Street, so there should be less tourist, well at less in the lower bar. I drank my two beers downstairs in what they call P.J. OíNeillís, the name of the pub before LPPB moved in. A simple, nonchalant pub that made me feel comfortable. The barmaid was quite knowledgeable, to the point of telling us that the ESB was too malty, she was right. Like I said, I had two of their beer, the IPA and UBU Ale, quite nice. A must come back!
A little hard to find, but worth a stop. Good sampler offering, and the food looked great but we had just eaten. Nice wood cabin ambiance, which was very fitting for our winter visit. Manager was off putting, insisted that the tap handle we own for one of their products must have been "stolen" because we bought it on Ebay... I guess their Ubu taps are all handcarved by a local guy? Anyway, made us feel like jerks when all we had inquired about was a sticker for the tap handle. Whatever. Still a good place to grab a sampler.
The wife cruised thru on a business trip to grab me some brews. Her review:
Nice clean bar, friendly staff helped me grab a mixed 6 pack and get back on the road quickly. The place smelled great I wish I would have had time for lunch. Would definitely make a point to try if in the area again.
Lunch on a Friday.
Quiet at the time. Waiter did not seem to know how to recommend beers...
More selection would be nice.
Other than that, the beers are well made and the food was excellent.
would definitely return.
try the IPA!
Subpar college like place. I aske for their wheat beer , got bottle and bo glass. And this is their brewpub ? They dont even respect their own beer.... Staff had litlle knowledge. Average beer quality.
Warm roaring fire inside. Nothing too special as far as decor/ambiance goes. Wood floors, tables and bar. However, acceptable dine in your snow/ski gear. ~1pm on a Sunday, crowded but seated right away. Very friendly, quick service. 6 beers on tap (all theirs). Order the sampler ( $6.75). Surprised there was no stout/porter on tap considering the cold/winter season. The Winter Lager (6.5%) was solid. Nothing too inspiring our notable from the other 5 beers on tap. Decent lunch selection menu and fair prices. Overlooking mirror lake just a few steps off the main street near the speed skating ice rink. Absolutely worth visiting if your in the area.
Located just a short walk from the main drag in Lake Placid and is situated in an old church, sort of reminds me of a ski lodge. There is an Irish Pub on the main floor but did not check it out. I went upstairs to the main attraction. It has a nice patio that overlooks Mirror Lake.
They have 6 beers on tap, 4 standards & 2 seasonal. Bartender seemed to know the brews quite well. The food is standard pub grub and the service is pleasant and friendly. Atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. Nice place to get away from the tourists or skiers depending on the season.
