Not only was the food delicious but we were made to feel like a welcome guest instead of just another customer walking thru the door. We want to thank our the servers for doing a great job ! See you again next September !... More

Generations is a large bar/restaurant on the main street in Lake Placid - probably the largest in the town. It is connected to the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort, where our family stayed for a week in August. We went there for brunch, lunch, and picked up takeout for dinner one night and all were great food. We went about 3... More

The menu had quite a few German dishes (the owners being of German decent we discovered by talking with the friendly waitress). My wife and I both ordered the same sandwich, which turned out to be excellent. Very well made, with fresh ingredients and awesome bread (not sure if home made or not...either way it was great). The decor is... More

So great having it within the Golden Arrow Resort...just a walk down the hall and into the elevator. Service was great though they are usually quite busy at breakfast. Also wonderful views of the lake and the rooftop herb garden.....so unique!

We stayed for 2 nights at The Golden Arrow and had complimentary breakfast both days. It was delicious both days. We also had dinner there one night and my boyfriend said it was the best burger he's ever had! (That's saying a lot because he orders burgers out a lot.) I got a flatbread and it was delightful, as well.... More

We were seated by a most courteous Hostess and the waitress was pleasant and efficient. The breakfast was served fast and was exactly what we ordered. Considering the location, the price of the meal was much better than... More

The food is okay, whatever seems to be German, maybe settle for something different. It is not even close to the real German food, but then how would most people know ... The view was the best part of our lunch, our grand daughter was afterwards looking forward to drive to Plattsburgh and have an early supper at Applebee's.
