    When traveling to the Adirondacks it is best to pack your own lunch- there's nothing worth eating up there.

    Well, i need to amend that; in Warrensburg there's a very good smokehouse and around the Saratoga area there's some good restaurants

    Cheers, John

    I absolutely love Saranac Sourdough for breakfast. Lake Placid Brewing has excellent beers and passable pub fare. Carribean Cowboy is definitely eclectic and very good. Jimmy's 21, Nicola over Main are both very good. Lake Placid is overall more expensive than other Adirondack places but there is some good food there. Oscars in Warrenburg has great smoked meat and cheese but is not a dining establishment.

    Lake Placid has one of the few remaining Howard Johnson's Restaurants around.

    I enjoyed Cameron's in Lake Placid (but they are just open for dinner)

    reasonably priced burgers, independantly owned...
    the atmosphere is like a Friday's (TGI Fridays), but the food is much better

    Saranac Sourdough has the best homenade bread and sandwiches. When we visit there, we buy a half dozen leaves of bread to freeze. Unfortunately, they don't last long in the freezer.

    Glad to see someone else knows of them. They are very nice folks too. You can also upgrade your breakfast with Oscar's.

    Gosh, I got so trashed on St.Pattys day, 1995 in Lake Placid.
    I barely remember eating some great fajitas at a (if I remember correctly, wooden front restaurant, with ornate wooden doors, on the east side of town. At least I think it was east, as I was coming from the west, from Old Forge/Eagle Bay area.....
    It was past the Ice Skating Arena.... actually right down the street on the left hand side. Funny how I can remember that much.
    It just so happened, that it was the time that there was the college hockey playoffs going on, and we could barely find a room for the night. Had a total blast there.. Lots of fun bars with up and down staircases.. seems like most of them, you had to go downstairs to drink.
    Never mind me.. Just reminiscing here.

    I just found the name of the bar that we loved so much.
    Since it is 10 years later, I dont know what it is like now, but it is called Roomers..
    Fun place (back then)--pool tables, etc... music.

    I did see this link while trying to find where I went.

    The Lake Placid Pub and Brewery looks interesting to me.

    It's been a few years since I've been up to Lake Placid but the last time I was there the Great Adirondack Steak & Seafood Co. was better than average (the beer was excellent) and Jimmy's Lakeside was very good.

    Reviving a 13-year-old thread...going in two weeks. Is this still a culinary wasteland or are there good options there?

    Hi Bonk, I was up there in 2017 with my family.  Stayed in Rainbow Lake and spent a lot of time in Saranac and Plattsburgh with a bit of time in Lake Placid. 
    Here's my trip report from that vacation:  http://forums.roadfood.com/MICHIGAN-IMPOSSIBLE-My-6Day-Obsession-with-the-Iconic-Hot-Dogs-of-NYs-North-Country-m863774.aspx
    Note: Donnelley's ice cream has just closed for the 2019 season.  If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
     
    Will you be driving there from Cincinnati?  If so, what route will you be taking in New York State?  Are there other towns/areas near Lake Placid that you'll be visiting?
     
    I don't believe that we actually ate at any place in Lake Placid but we really liked Saranac Sourdough for lunch. 
     
    The old Howard Johnson's is no longer in business but the building still stands and is now called The 'dack Shack (short for Adirondack).  I had a good burger and fries and they have the fried clams and hot dogs that were on the HoJo's menu from years ago.
     
    If you're willing to drive a bit, my favorite Michigan spots are:
    1.)  McSweeney's (Plattsburgh)
    2.)  Clare & Carl's (Plattsburgh)
    3.)  Ronnie's Michigan Stand (Morrisonville)
    4.)  Just Dogs (Paul Smith)
    5.)  The Cone Cabin (Lake Clear) (just read online that they are PERMANENTLY CLOSED)

    Bonk, the Ferry to Burlington Vt is only a 20 minute ride with some better options. I have a brother in Plattsburgh and they love going over there for dinner. I'll ask him where they go and get back.....pnwchef

    From LP to Port Kent is an hour plus about another hour for the ferry to Burlington. I haven’t been up in over a year and depending on what you want, in Saranac Lake, the Left Bank is very good. Haven’t been but across the street, Fiddlehead looks interesting. In LP Liquids and Solids, Lisa G’s, Lake Placid Brewing and The Cottage are worth a look. I’m a sucker for good bread so usually stopped at Saranac Sourdough too. Good food and spectacular setting at Lake Placid Lodge.
