Service is excellent. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed at the Golden Arrow for 3 nights and had lunch & dinner at Generations every day. Every meal was delicious from the salads to the short rib dish.
Some items were a bit pricey but made up for it in flavor. Highly recommend.

Soggy pizza and an overpriced martini with little to no vodka.

They were short staffed and told us once we were seated that the order may take up to an hour to complete. Thankfully, it was only about a half an hour. Food was great and there was a nice view. Sometimes the waitress disappeared for 5-10 minutes. Asked for a refill on drink and didn't get it.

We had a great meal at Generations on Valentine’s Day! The staff was very accommodating with our group and took us earlier than our reservation time. We had a wonderful table by the fireplace and our server was phenomenal. She assisted us with some changes in our order and everything came out timely and correctly each time. The food was phenomenal. From appetizers to dessert. We will definitely be back!

During our visit to Lake Placid we enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Generations both were tasty and we will definitely eat there again when in town. Service both times was very personable and very good, even in the COVID climate.

Had dinner at generations last January. It was good food and overall a pleasant experience. Went again on 1/23/2021. I don’t know what happened to the place. My smoked wings were dry almost like jerky, not on the good side of palatable. Then I had the chicken pot pie. First off it had Brussel sprouts in the mixture. The menu said nothing about them. The puff pastry was under cooked. The vegetables were boiled not roasted like stated. The chicken had a dry rub the that dominated. And was in competition with the extreme smoke flavor present. I understand what they were trying to do but the execution of the dish was poorly managed by what I presume to be a over zealous chef or kitchen manager. Self restraint when it comes to flavoring a dish is a hard thing to learn. Fresh ingredients should be the one heard not the ego.

My wife and I ate here years ago (probably 10 years) with a group of friends. It was probably the worst dining experience for everyone.

Haven’t been to Lake Placid in a few years, so thought we’d give the place another chance with our three kids (a lot can happen in 10 years lol). We were very pleased by the service and food. Kids loved their meals as didn we. The food presentation was also really nice! The only complaint my wife had was too many brussel sprouts in the pot pie. Will certainly visit again!

Wonderful experience for our son’s 5th birthday. Service was attentive and food was prepared very quickly. Meals were amazing—appetizers were the absolute best! Especially the pretzel, dips, beer cheese, and pickles! Definitely returning very soon!

Overall good experience. The food was good except for the teriyaki sauce which was extremely salty. Unfortunately we ordered the wings and 2 salmon dishes that had that sauce. Our server was very nice, we could tell that it was a busy night and she was the only server in our area but regardless of that she ensured we were attended to.

We popped in for a quick breakfast before we hit the road to end our vacation. Everything was very good, food through service. I was especially impressed with the corned beef hash that the corned beef was smoked in house. All in all, very good.
