Great place with outstanding view of Mirror Lake. Went twice on vacation-once during Iron Man. The second a few days later. Seated quickly both times. Good food both times. Decent beer. Poor service both times-particularly the second. Sat with an empty beer for about 10 minutes before the waitress came with our check.
Outstanding atmosphere, college pennants from across the country cover the walls (including one from my alma mater, bonus points). Small rounded bar area with a lot of tables. Staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable. Selection is good, lots of styles on tap - sampler is a great way to try them all. Value is pretty reasonable. Overall, it’s a great little gem in the Lake Placid area, and the Ubu is outstanding!

Very nice experience.
Four adults ate lunch with 3 of us drinking beer for $65.00.
Food was good.
A strange Shepard’s Pie recipe though.
It was like mashed potatoes floating in soup.
Friendly and quick service.
Take a college pennant along so that they can add it to their collection over the bar.
This is a short walk from the center of town.

Visited on a quiet Thursday afternoon in July for lunch and beer. Nice place. Our server was prompt and friendly. They had six brews on draft, five of them were good, two were excellent, and one was undrinkable. The food (I got a buffalo chicken wrap) was excellent. All in all, I had a pretty decent experience.
My style of place. The food was good for a brewpub, with a nice assortment of sandwiches, salads, soups and spicy entrees. The beer (I had the sampler) was also a great deal. Quality brews all around that were each very sessionable. The waitress noticed I was taking notes but she was very friendly and took good care of our table. It was a quick lunch but definitely one that I want to repeat.
I used to go to school up near Lake Placid, so this place was always a stop for a bite and a few beers. The ambiance is very laid back and friendly here. It’s not the nicest brewpub you’ll go to, but it has a comfy atmosphere. The food is good and filling, but nothing to shout about. The beer selection is good. They usually have 5 or 6 house brews with the Frostbite Pale Ale being my fav, although they had a nice Maibock last time I stopped there. All in all, a nice place to relax and drink a few ADK brews.
Établissement visité le dimanche 27 mai vers 14h après une randonnée sur le mont Cascade. Ambiance: Endroit très bruyant avec musique en sourdine. Plein de fanion de football accroché partout. Service: On m’a brièvement décrit les bières maisons et on m’a présenté le menu bouffe. Sélection: Lors de mon passage, six bières étaient disponible dont deux saisonnières. Nourriture: Menu assez simple, comme nous avions diné un peu plus tôt, nous avons seulement pris 2 entrées soit des bâtonnet de mozzarella et un espèce de croisement entre une poutine et un chili gratiné. (47e rating d’établissement).
This convivial brewpub’s beers were all decent, the Frostbite Pale Ale being a standout. The food was good, hearty pub fare, and the service very friendly. The decor upstairs is a mix of ski chalet and cozy pub, and it actually works. A very comfortable atmosphere is created, one which is perfect for a meal and a few brews.
