We went there after hiking a mountain in the region, service is excellent, the food is excellent too. Entrées go around $15-20, beer $6, I'd recommend this place to anyone that is passing in this region as the view outside is magnificent. I would definitely...More

It is a bit out of the way but very popular with the locals, Baxter Mountain is a great place to go for excellent American food. Everything was good, we had the pork chops and the fried chicken. Both portions were huge and the potatoes...More

This is a rustic place, with hearty fare, and an out in the middle of nowhere setting with a lovely view - it's great, and reflective of an Adirondack experience, for sure. Soups, sandwiches, burgers, and dinner entrees on the menu all seem simple and...More

Food is ok but very pricey for a tavern out in no mans land. Ravoli's looked like frozen and they were $20.00. The hambuger was very expensive and not great. I think they need to revamp the menu.
