“Great food!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Great food and good prices. Doesn't look like much from the outside but you will love the inside between friendly service to great food. Off the beaten path but worth the drive. Recommend to all my friends and family. We always eat there when in Lake Placid.

“Don't Expect 4 Stars”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

My trips here have never yielded 4-star service or food, but always a satisfying meal for a fair price. Expect fairly plain fare, cooked well without a lot of fanfare. Many locals eat here by choice.

“Way better than the tourist-traps downtown!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Definitely worth the short drive out of Lake Placid town, away from the, "get 'em in and get 'em out" regime of restaurants there. This is a very pleasant, comfortable and honest restaurant, it doesn't pretend to be something it isn't, but with a varied menu of good dishes, all presented by polite and helpful staff. The Cascade Restaurant happily confirmed we should always pre-check Tripadvisor - that way we would've been able to avoid our previous forgettable dining experiences in Lake Placid. Would return to this establishment anytime.

“Basic, country homestyle restaurant”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

My wife and I had fairly good meals here on our way into Lake Placid. That being said, I would not consider this restaurant anything close to the best dining in Lake Placid. I recommend continuing into town and stopping at any one of the next three restaurants you will pass...Chair 6, Liquids and Solids, or Lisa G's.

If you are looking mostly for good value (quantity) and a nice Adirondack feel, you will likely enjoy the Cascade Inn. If you are looking for quality and willing to sacrifice some on the quantity, you will do just as well for your money at several other places in town.

The Chicken Parm was good, and the steak fairly good. The broccoli and cheddar soup tasted like it came out of a can. There is no tap beer, but plenty of bottle and wine options.

Perhaps the thing that we found most disconcerting was the tap water. Water in the Adirondacks is excellent, but theirs had the strangest taste. The only thing we could figure was that it went through a water softener. If you enjoy a couple good glasses of water with your meal, you will be disappointed.

“2013 Outing”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

This is the best place and the must place to eat when in Lake Placid, a bit out of town on Rt73.
Only takes about ten minutes drive but well worth it, their prices are the best, as they include
everything except dessert. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.
