Very nice restaurant, quaint decor. The food was good and wait staff very good. We had small children and a baby and they were always happy to pack up food to take to our hotel unit.

Ate several meals here while staying in the attached hotel. Lots of interesting and yummy options on the menu along with friendly service. Service was a bit slow though, and hard to get coffee refills at breakfast.

We enjoyed 3 breakfasts here during our stay at the Golden Arrow. The buffet was very good with more options than we expected. The breakfast menu has a ton of options. We will definitely be going back on our next trip.

Food is of a cheapest diner quality, even breakfast is miserable, coffee is better at gas station. We will never be back there.

We stayed at the Golden Arrow hotel and had their breakfast as part of the Groupon deal we scored. Very, very fresh beautifully made omelet for partner who is extremely picky about no cheese on it, plus my eggs Benedict was terrific. Coffee was strong and smooth, as well as never ending. The restaurant has a living green roof and... More

I've been stopping in here for years, and will continue to do so. With the family, we always get the buffet. I will warn you that if you're competing for food with a hockey team, you're going to have to wait. The view is second to none from the "upper deck".

Generations is a large bar/restaurant on the main street in Lake Placid - probably the largest in the town. It is connected to the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort, where our family stayed for a week in August. We went there for brunch, lunch, and picked up takeout for dinner one night and all were great food. We went about 3... More
