“The Salt of the Earth Bistro will go down as one of the best restaurants i've ever been to. After constantly driving past this place heading into Lake Placid, my dad and I decided to make a reservation for dinner to celebrate completing the ADK 46er challenge. The food was delicious, the waiter had amazing attention to detail and was extremely knowledgeable. I would give 10 stars if I could. The price is 100% worth it.“

“Absolutely incredible! Everytime I go I try something new, usually something I don't cook at home, and it always blows me away. The flavors are so good! The quality and portions are really great. Servers are always friendly, even though it's usually very busy. I make a point to go everytime I visit Lake Placid. One of my favorites in NY for sure!“

“10/31/2023-My wife and I chose this place due to the good reviews from past diners and it didn’t disappoint. Was seated quickly but that was expected due to it being a Tuesday evening and Halloween. My wife ordered an apple mule and I order the house porter, both were excellent. The app we ordered was a fried duck wing and it was cooked to perfection. The pickled peppers were a nice touch. We both had “The Steak” with herb butter, smashed potatoes and carrots….very good. For dessert they had a desert charcuterie board. A nice play on charcuterie and the pumpkin brittle was my favorite. Our waitress was very attentive and super knowledgeable on what she was serving. Will revisit when we come back.“

We had some burgers which were delicious, made with a kaiser roll and lots of veggies and some polish kielbasa for the kids. Food was excellent and fairly priced. Owner was super nice and talked to all the customers. We will definitely be back when we are in the area.“

“Specializing in creative cocktails that they pair expertly with their small plates menu. My wife and I recently shared a vegetarian Greek board, Lobster Roll and Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese and everything was delicious with cocktails recommended. I enjoyed an “I Think You Should” bourbon cocktail while my spouse was very happy with her “Japanese Sour” with egg whites. While they are located upstairs at the top end of the town with a patio that overlooks Mirror lake there is an elevator that worked for my wife on crutches.“

It reminded me of the flourless chocolate cake my aunt used to make. The chocolate mousse cake was also very good. Great service and delicious treats. Highly recommend!“

“This place is right out of the past. I love it. I have stayed here a couple times and the last 2 nights was one of them. Admittedly, it was a little chilly when we got to our room (somewhat late) and the place is a little dated but it is so clean and the people are so kind AND the restaurant is Amazing! The price point is unbeatable!Stay where you feel home❤️“

“Great little restaurant / pub with tasty food and good service. Absolutely loved the wild mushroom faro dish I got. My son's chicken tenders and fries were much better than average. He also loved his s'mores shake. The servers were very nice and prompt. The place is clean and nicely decorated. They have craft beers on tap and plenty more to choose from bottled. Not much wine. Looks like they have at least one bar with full liquor. If I lived in the area, I'd frequent this place.Vegetarian options: They have a wild mushroom and spinach faro in cream sauce dish that is fantastic! You can also add tofu to it. They also have salads, fries and other veggies options.“

“Tasty and flavorful food that is also beautifully presented. The menu is not extensive and centers around scrambled eggs/omelets. Very nice place, run by a sweet and courteous pair. A little pricier than the next door Downtown Diner.The Flaming rooster was delicious but it should come with a side of home fries by default.But don't come before 8 am. Despite posted hours online, they do not open before then. We tried around 7:10 on Thursday and at 8:00 on Saturday. They were closed on Thursday with no one inside and were just opening on Saturday at 8.Vegetarian options: There are a few vegetarian options and we ordered the mountain man without meat.“

“The views are absolutely amazing! We played the Scottish links course. The only reason this review is getting a 4 instead of a 5 star is because of their carts. Their were no shields on the front or rain overs for our clubs which doesn't seem like a huge deal. But at $80 per person you would think they would have something a little more usable when it's raining.“
