Couldn’t have asked for a better place to do a celebratory dinner. The food was absolutely phenomenal - the chef is talented as hell. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, & definitely don’t forget dessert. On top of all that, the place is so warm & cozy, & Max was awesome - we received amazing service, & stayed past our dinner touring the inn & chatting. It’s a gorgeous spot with tons of awesome history, & we’ll definitely be staying there the next time we visit the Adirondacks.

We had dinner at Interlaken Inn Lake Placid and it was outstanding!! To start, the Inn has such a fun beautiful vibe with a gorgeous mahogany bar and elegant historic features.Food & drinks: Chef Justin prepared an incredible dinner and the service from Matt and Jason was excellent! It’s definitely beautiful Fine Dining New Orleans style. My husband had the Nightmare on Bourbon Street drink with the Crawfish Croquettes to start… then Lamb Chops… then beignets for desert. I had the Duck/Sausage Gumbo to start, then the Short ribs and finished with the Banana bread pudding. Amazing flavors. Needless to say, we’ll be back and we highly recommend.

The food is delicious! We were a party of 6 and between us, we sampled almost every dish on the menu. Chef Justin’s cuisine is refined and delicate! This restaurant is up to par with the finest in Montreal!!


We stayed at the Inn over the July 4th holiday and found Casey and Justin to be wonderful hosts - so friendly! The Inn itself is nicely maintained with much of its original detail - very quiet which we were seeking. The food was fantastic as were the wine recommendations. The location is a 5 minute walk to town and Mirror Lake and so, accessible to all Lake Placid offers. Just a 7-8 minute walk to Lake Placid in the other direction - rented kayaks and recommend that.

So enjoyed our dinner last month at the Interlaken! Loved both the food and atmosphere! We began with a cocktail at the bar - super attentive bar tender. If we weren’t with such a large group I would have sat there for our meal. My main course of pan seared mahi mahi was cooked to perfection. It was so beautifully plated- should have taken a photo. Can’t wait to go back the next time I’m in town. Another bonus - a parking lol!!! Love the downtown strip - but I didn’t miss trying to find a parking spot!Noteworthy details: Food and bar exceptional!

I've been a summer resident here for over 20 years and was gutted when The Interlaken closed; it was one of our favorites. So I was thrilled to hear they reopened this past January. We finally had a chance to go and I thought it was wonderful. The menu is slightly smaller but everything my husband and I had was delicious. The issues with the service seem to be getting better. (There is not a place in town that isn't struggling to find and train good staff, so patrons should give them a break, rather than leaving poor reviews. Thank goodness for entrepreneurs, who are willing to put themselves in the arena and work to open a restaurant, so we all have places to go and dine out. I think it's pretty petty, in this environment to be complaining that your drinks took 10 minutes to come out!) End of rant:) The Arugula salad with spring vegetables, maple balsamic vinaigrette & crispy shredded wontons, was delectable, as was the corn soup with lime crema. I had the special grilled mahi-mahi and my husband the lamb loin; both of which were cooked to perfection, were flavorful and served with tasty and delicate accompaniments. There are few enough fine dining restaurants in town, now that the one in the Lake Placid Lodge is no longer open to the public (which I've heard is going downhill anyway). So I say let's support The Interlaken, The StageCoach Inn and The View - local gems one and all!


We decided to have dinner here, it was fabulous! We love the charm of the Victorian style. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the food delicious. My wife had the sweet potato ravioli, she said it was the best she’s ever tasted. She started with the leek and potato soup which was also very tasty. I started with the duck and andouille dish. I enjoy a spicy dish and this was the right amount of kick, very tasty. I also had the schnitzel which was prepared just the way it should be for a German style dish. We love the Lake Placid area and will return here again!

My wife and I stayed there for 4 days for our winter break and it was amazing. The Inn has such a great location, the town is 5 minutes away by walk and there are plenty of good hikes and activities in less than 30 minutes drive.The restaurant is a must try, the menu is really well curated and allows you to try different great plates. If you are looking for dinner make sure you allow yourself to try a little bit of everything and if you stay in the Inn enjoy being there and relax the bar and restaurant more than once.I am looking forward to go back!


My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Interlaken and plan to make it an annual trip. We ate at the restaurant multiple times to try different menu options as well as sit in different areas, the dining and bar area are so special and comfortable. Everything was excellent (the duck confit -- I'm ruined for life, it was the best I've ever had and my husband is still talking about the beignets) and the staff was warm and friendly, it felt like it was not our first stay! It was a cold week but the room was always toasty and the bed very comfortable. The location is great, very quiet but an easy walk down to everything along Mirror Lake. Romantic, special and cozy, I highly recommend, a great place to come back to after a long day outside and even better that you only have to go downstairs for a memorable meal!


We have been dining at the Interlaken for 10 years and were very sad when the original owners sold the inn & restaurant. However, this past year we were very excited to see that it had reopened under new ownership. The ambiance of the restaurant is still the original Interlaken, but that's were it stops. We had a reservation on a weekend evening for 10 people, but only had tableware for 8. Our server was not able to answer simple questions about what liquor brand was used in the drinks on the menu. It then took 45 minutes for our entire party to receive a drink. We received our appetizers before drinks because of the wait. Hot water was served in our drinking glasses and no spoons were served with the soup. The food was subpar. The brussel sprouts were undercooked, the soup was cold, the beet salad had giant leafs of kale and the French fries served were all the scraps that fell to the bottom of the pile. A certain level of service is expected if you are going to consider the establishment fine dining and continue to use the Interlaken name. We will cherish our old memories of the original Interlaken, but will not be recreating any new ones at this establishment.


Great venue for an intimate dinner, excellent cuisine and service. The Duck and braised ribs outstanding. Small portions. A cheese selection even small would be great as an alternative to desserts to finish a great bottle of wine. Beignets excellent. Will return.


New Interlaken inn. Food was very good. We had corn croquettes for appetizer- very good. Dinner- short ribs were very good, but the portion size on the small size, yet very good. Also had clam- pasta special and that also was very good. Support staff a bit on the rough side. Could not deliver a hot cup of tea. Would we come again? Yes, hopefully the support staff will improve. Bottom line- good new chef, staff needs to match his level.
