 (New Mexico)·Dined on July 5, 2014

A must for special night if you're spending time in/around Saranac Lake. Well worth the 20 min drive to get to Lake Clear. Amazing beer cellar, strong and thoughtful wine list. Kathy (owner/chef) makes very special meals old world style. A+ sauerbraten & schnitzel, but menu changes with the weather and locally available supply. Don't expect an extensive menu, but do expect to savor. This is an experience, not just a dinner, so don't expect a quick meal, a lot of advanced prep goes into the entrees, and they are meant to be enjoyed. Plan to make an enjoyable night of it, spending time in the beer cellar, lingering over some appetizers, wander outside by the lake with a beverage, all before sitting down to eat. And do NOT pass up dessert.

As usual, a beautiful location and great spot for a long dinner with friends/family. The beer selection, sides & sauces were outstanding. The meats (and our table tried many of them) were somewhat tough, thin and lacking in any of their own flavor.

The Adirondack Alps is a MANDATORY stop while visiting the area. The great lodge dining experience is unequaled in the area without spending thousands. The quality of the food is fantastic. We have lived in the area for over 5 years and have had no better food anywhere else to include 5 Star restaurants in Lake Placid. The table is yours for the entire evening and is reminiscent of fine European dining experiences. You will have ample time for conversation with your dining partner, or strike up a conversation with other friendly customers in the lounge. The 25 acre grounds are beautiful throughout the year and you are afforded the opportunity to enjoy them before or after dinner. Chef Kathy and Ernst are wonderful hosts!

If your looking for a great dining experience, in the middle of no where, this is the place. We travel about an 1 1/2 hour. Came upon this restaurant in Adirondack Life magazine. Looking for a place to celebrate my birthday.
Since then, whenever we have company and we can be in the area, we schedule a dinner date. Food, service and atmosphere is terrific. Highly recommend:)

 (Portland)·Dined on December 31, 2013

I had new years dinner at Adirondack Alps and was blown away. We arrived at 7:15 PM for a 7:30 dinner reservation, and were ushered to a downstairs wine/beer cellar. The cellar was nicely lit with ample seating on couches, and classically lit with candles. The beers and wines in the cellar were artfully chosen and featured many great wines from the Finger Lakes region. After sampling appetizers, we made our way to a beautiful dining room where we sampled extremely tasty German fare. Our hosts and our servers were all very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. I'd definitely go back with another group, or on a date. It was a fantastic experience.

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.

"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.

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!

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.

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!!!

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. .

My husband & I enjoyed the last dinner of our honeymoon at The Lodge on Lake Clear. The place was a special combination of Adirondack Great Camp history & culture with Old World cuisine all twisted together for a unique experience. From the extravagant wine & beer selection, to the fresh ingredients in the tomato & basil soup, to the Wild-Caught pike with Rosti, all of the flavors were savory & melted in your mouth. My personal favorite was Kathy's attention to detail with gluten free ingredients. Her gf cornbread was the best I have ever had! This is definitely a safe place for gf diners. A few other highlights from the evening included walking down to Lake Clear at sunset, the friendly wait staff, & quiet candle lit dining room.
