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. O’Neill’s, 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!
3 story brewpub. Big beer selection. Indoor and outdoor seating. Plenty of room. Not dog or kid friendly. Growlers and flights available. Some of the beer was very good, some of it was not so good (stay away from the European styles). Didn’t try the food. Meh.
This is a great brewpub. Good beers and a solid selection, nothing crazy, mostly normal styles, but all the beers are well made. There is a cool bar on the first floor, a nice bar and eatery on the second, and some tables to eat on the third with a children’s playroom. This is Great if you have kids. Some awesome decks overlooking mirror lake as well. And the food was very good. Mostly pub food, but very tasty. Love this place. Always try to stop in while in lake placid.
Nice looking place with a good choice of beers.Did not eat at the place this time but I wiil go back again.The service was great freindly and they know the beers.They have a nice terrasse overlooking a lake.
Just returned from a long weekend in Lake Placid...stayed at the Hampton Inn next door (btw...best Hampton Inn I’ve ever seen). The really cool thing is the two places are adjacent...drink at the LPPB and walk a very short walk home. This place really has great atmosphere...across from Mirror Lake...especially the downstairs pub. The food is decent...the beer is very good...I wouldn’t say great...but very good.The IPA was nice along with Rauch the Cas-Bock...but the real star is the Ubu..a great English strong ale. The vibe is pretty cool downstairs...especially when it’s snowing hard outside which it was the night I visited. The staff was great too. Although I was never a huge fan of their bottled beer...a visit here is definitely a must when in the area.
Wife and I each ordered burgers. And I got a sampler of beers. Mine was good. Hers was supposed to be medium well and came out half rare. Waiter was very attentive and handled it professionally. UBU ale is very good and worthy of honors received. IPA is also solid. Ambiance is great. Three levels of pub and even a kids room for family diners.
1st place we had a meal when stopping in Lake Placid. Off the main st. 3 floors in the building to choose from. The Irish bar, the sports bar or the fancy resturant the is kid friendly. We ate in the sports bar. A decent steak sandwich and a turkey club. The sampler tray of 6 beers was $8. I’ll stop back in next time in town.
The brewery has been in operation since the mid 90’s and is now a very mature pub......in slow times it is a great place, but in heavy traffic weekends (we were there Ironman weekend) it is hectic, noisy and often has long waits......now it’s completely understandable for the waits however we waited almost 20 minutes to have our plates cleared and to receive the check....if you’re trying to turn over tables and folks are helping you why not help them move on? Not putting this on the waitress as she was given tables on both sides where she couldn’t see us......just a bit more organization and a few more beers in the lineup and it would be awesome even on a busy weekend.
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 wasn’t 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.
