Lovely family owned restaurant
Lovely family owned restaurant in old world lodge. Attentive and knowledgeable service. Food was a mix of German style cuisine and nouvelle cuisine., so there was something for everyone. There are very limited options for dining around Saranac lake, and this was truly a gem. .

Don't Miss This Adirondack Gem!
We really didn't know what to expect when we drove in for dinner, but haven't stopped raving about it since! We were warmly greeted at the door by the co-owner and given a tour of the beer and wine cellar while contemplating our dinner choices that change daily. From sampling a few wine choices to strolling the beautiful grounds of the lakeside lodge while waiting for the appetizers to be served, it was really one of the most interesting dining experiences we've ever had. The food was delicious and plentiful and Chef Cathy was able to accommodate a gluten-free diner as well (best to call ahead though for restrictions so they are prepared). Well worth the drive from Lake Placid!!!

We've been before and will certainly come again. The setting is beautiful, the wine cellar and beer selection is fantastic. the service is friendly and spot-on, and the food never disappoints. Can't say enough about this wonderful place!

It is truly a unique experience.
It is truly a unique experience. For starters, you are greeted by Ernest who explains the evening menu and his extensive wine cellar and beers. He was cordial and polite and provide enough information for you to make a decision to purchase or not. The appetizers were interesting and tasty. The entrees came with soup and salad and were fresh and made with local ingredients. The German food we ordered was perfectly cooked and plenty. We were offered seconds if we wished. You will not be disappointed. The only draw back is the price which is somewhat high but check the menu and prices on the internet and you will not be surprised. They really put their heart and soul into the food and service, so it's well worth the price.

Found this place on OpenTable; it was off season, not many there, but the owners were wonderful. They have a great beer cellar including many rare import beers, and a good wine selection.
The homemade meal was fantastic. Try the salmon schnitzel!
It is a little out of the way from Lake Placid, but if you are in the area, make it a point to go!

The staff were very friendly
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They treated the guests like family. The personlization make it quite an experience. There was no one else staying in the lodge so they upgraded us to a suite with a jetted tub with no extra fee.

THE BEST GREAT CAMP EXPERIENCE
"I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The wine and beer cellar provided ample choices. Weather enjoying appitizers and drinks downstairs or in the dining room you will recieve top notch service and guidance for a very unique to the area style of dining. Looking forward to stepping outside next summer to enjoy the wine garden and await the sunset over the lake.
