Tried to reply to vineouspleasure's post but unable to get connected so here goes:
We had thought Crowne Plaza was better than High Peaks resort last year.
We did just about everyting on the table but the turkey(LOL.
Salads were good as were the shrimp and scallop plates.
Everything else above average but ,like you said,nothing stood out.
Had breakfast the next day at Steak and seafood which was really good.
Their hash was about the best we've had in Lake Placid and there was plenty of it in their large serving plate.
Dinner the next night withfreinds at their home so no report for dinners but we did stop off for cocktails at Interlaken Inn,like we said we'd do,and they had several martini specialties and while there we did hit their dessert menu for some pre-dinner goodies that were fantastic.
Also did Brown Dog Cafe'-which is getting some really good reviews here and we had a great meal there as well.
Breakfast on the way out was at Ruth's Restaurant;a Lake Placid staple for harty breakfasts and reasonable prices with good portions.
They did not disappoint.
Wanted to try Chair 6 but the last few times we tried the place they were not open at 7am when the sign on the door said that they would be open.
We waited around for a while and left with many other people who were standing outside as well.
Must be hard to get to work on time(LOL).
