This is the place to go after you've worked up an appetite climbing one of the nearby peaks. The service and the regulars are always friendly; the food always good; the selection of on tap beer and ale short but well-rounded.

We love this place. Have eaten there three times and each did not disappoint. We would recommend eating dinner outside as the sunsets. During the summer or in the fall this is a can't miss opportunity.

I had heard that the "Purdy Burger", an onion-and cheese-topped hamburger formerly served at Monty's Elm Tree Inn (closed around 2004), could be had here, so I stopped in to find out for myself. It was indeed, and along with a pint of a good local brew I was able to satisfy my curiosity as well as hunger. The burger... More

While vacationing in Lake Placid, my wife and I stumbled upon Baxter MountainTavern. On a hiking trail website to Baxter Mt., the pitch-off directions stated that "if you reach Baxter Mt.Tavern, you've gone too far". The tavern is less than a quarter mile from the trail-head. We sat on their side deck and the view provided a beautiful mountain scene.... More

This is one of our favorite Adirondack restaurants due to excellent food and service. The setting is in the Adirondack high peaks and the view of the woods and mountains is nice but not spectacular. It is a rustic, informal place representative of the Adirondack style. Reasonably priced and great mood setting for region.
