Slow service, pork chop full of blood, duck over-cooked. my son is a fish lover, he threw up after their fish. We will never be back there again.

I don't recall whether I've already written a review for the Interlaken Inn, but if I have it has been a number of years. I'm happy to say that The Interlaken is still a fantastic dining experience and still my favorite spot in Lake Placid. To my delight, year in and year out, the owners are able to continue to...

The Inn is located in a beautiful section of town between Mirror Lake and Lake Placid. If you want a quiet dinner in a historic Inn with good seasonal fare this is the place. The bar inside looked beautiful and cozy. Service was slow but didn't mind the extra time given the surroundings. Would love to stay at the Inn... More

Our anniversary, quiet groups in the bar area with the exception of the "entitled" corner. Cannot even begin to describe how loud they were. Wait staff appeared to have their hands tied. Prima donna bride apologized to all in the area as she left. Horrible experience and we will not be back. We couldn't even have a conversation as the... More

enjoyed a fine dinner in restaurant. service was excellent, pleasant and very professional, server knew the menu. Wine list is varied with good regional distribution although more selection in the $40 to $50 range would be nice.

Stayed here to celebrate a friends special birthday. Owner, Mary and John, could not have been more accommodating. The rooms are very nice, and it is a short walk to the local shops. Have eaten dinner here twice and the food is FABULOUS! The bar area is nice and the staff is wonderful. The whole atmosphere is so cozy and... More

We made a 7pm reservation on Friday evening in November. The place was not very busy but the bar area was full. We were seated in the enclosed patio area. In the summer I would say this is a lovely spot to sit with the windows open and lots of sunshine but in the colder months, not so much. It... More

My wife and I tried the Interlaken Inn based on the recommendation of a friend who works at another restaurant in Lake Placid. It was an excellent recommendation. My wife is gluten free and the Interlaken made sure that her dinner was 100% glutne free. My steak was cooked perfectly and well priced. We ate in the bar area. It... More

We had heard so many good reviews of this place that we thought we had to try it, so we did. The ambience is spectacular. Low light in a rustic, High Peaks atmosphere is very inviting, and the bartender is superb. We found, however, that the food was not so superb and the service spotty because it seemed our server...
