We stayed across the street, and a member of our party found Generations. We were glad he did. It became our mainstay for the weekend. The bar in our hotel was a bit loud for us. We were in search for a relaxing place for a nice drink, and some pleasant conversation. We found it at Generations. The decor was... More

I eat at Generations often as it is a good option for lunch or quick dinner and drinks in Lake Placid. Atmosphere warm and the bar area is the perfect place to sit for a small meal and drinks.

This is a nice full serve restaurant right on the lake. We both had the artesian omelets this morning and they were terrific. We also had the passion guava fruit juice which was super sweet.

Generations is part of the Golden Arrow resort where we stay. We normally only eat breakfast at Generations. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet. It's normally very hectic at this time of day because of the young Can/Am hockey teams and parents. Food is good but it does get noisy during breakfast!

My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner and drinks after a long day. The dinner area was closed when we got there so we sat at the bar and order drinks and some burgers.

We stayed at the Golden Arrow Resort so it was attached. Ate breakfast twice and lunch once. The breakfast is absolutely wonderful. Great choices on the menus. The lunch menu was a little German or Brewery based. Craft burgers and sandwiches of sort. I think it would be better off with a more basic menu for lunch. We had wings,... More
