Chef Buddy’s

381 E Interlake Blvd
Lake Placid, 33852
Reviews:
Stopped at Chef Buddy's on my way back down to Miami, and what a great choice. First of all, the smell inside is intoxicating! Smelled like the best Italian kitchen I had ever smelled. I ordered the Badabing, which had pastrami, Swiss, and coleslaw. I added tomatoes and jalapeños for a little kick. The sub was perfect - so fresh, nicely toasted, and delicious. I had the pasta salad as my side, and that was okay. The dressing was good - I was just thrown off by the carrots, which I've never seen in pasta salad. Also got a chocolate chip cookie, which was phenomenal. Get them and take them home for later with milk. I would highly recommend if you live or are passing through the area. Just be mindful to check their hours.
Great food. Top Quality ingredients. Quick, efficient service. Only wish they had longer hours
If you are looking for food in Lake Placid that doesn't take an hour to come out and actually tastes fresh and pretty good, definitely check out Chef Buddy's. Let's put this in context: my other experience at a restaurant around here was one of the worst I've ever had and Lake Placid definitely isn't known for its food. So when you come across a place that uses fresh mozzarella, good dough imported from New Jersey, and uses fresh cut Boars head; you know that you've found a winner. I ordered the #13 - a meatball and sausage combo. It comes on ciabatta bread and with a side of pasta salad. The sandwich was very good. The homemade sausage was excellent. It wasn't too spicy but still had a great flavor. The meatballs were also very good. The bread was excellent. The pasta salad was just alright. On top of being one of the only places in the area that is good, the service was also excellent. The person who took our order was nice and helpful. I'm not going to go as far as saying it's the best sub I've ever had, but for where it is (in a town starved of good dining options), it definitely deserves 5 stars. I would definitely recommend it if you are in town and looking for a good, quick bite!

Very delicious pizza. Great quality food. Love the pizzas, calzones and Stromboli. If you're in the area check it out
The pizza was really good and they are huge. Not the best pizza I have ever had, but nowhere near the worst. I'd take it any day over the larger places.

Lake Placid Family Restaurant

Reviews:
When you want a solid breakfast and you kind of want it your way, they'll make it work. Plenty of pancakes, omelet's, grits or if you want a hamburger and greens, you can get it your way. Lunch has a special each day ranging from fried or baked chicken to fried catfish or some tasty grilled ribs cooked over a charcoal fire with some oak thrown in for a light smoky taste. Plenty of sides available. Fast service unless you're a local. haha. Winter brings in the snow birds and business is heavy during breakfast and lunch. The kitchen crew gets food out quick or they'll be getting an earful from Shannon. She's the owner and kind of grew up in the "truck stop" restaurant. She's a good person and manages the restaurant like the pro she is. Prices are typical and you get good size portions. If you don't prefer home style food...I suggest you at least give this a try and you may change your mind.
Friendly restaurant with great service and good food. Would recommend it to any one traveling through.
Well worth the stop on our way home from Sebring. The portions were pretty large and definitely fill you up. Service is quick, easy, and happy to answer questions. It's the most polite restaurant I've been to in a while.

Casa Tequila Mexican Restaurant

Reviews:
Average Family Mexican restaurant.
Favorite Mexican place in lake placid ! Good food very clean place. Open on Sundays! The chimichanga is my favorite.
(Visit of Monday, June 15). We found this to be a very clean little independent restaurant with very pleasant employees. We only stopped for drinks; the margaritas were from a standard mix but were decent. The young blonde waitress/bartender treated us with great respect and was very attentive, even though she had a few early parties - one a group of 8. The menu has a number of Mahi dishes and features many authentic Mexican dishes and sauces. Although we went for Happy Hour - which is very generous - we will definitely be back soon for dinner.

Great food, Great staff.. Can't go wrong here!!
Very crowded this Memorial Day weekend. Only 3 waitstaff, but our waitress did a great job. Food was good. Limited draft beers, but recently added Dogfish IPA in bottles (60 minute). Young crowd with corn hole game out back.
After years at the other place down the road, this just became our new lake go to. Great service, clean, comfortable, quick on drinks and dinner, and good place for kids... Plus Golden Tee and Pool Table!!! Solid Menu with a ton of choices, think upscale bar food.

The best Chinese food in Lake Placid. /s/ William E. Lewis Jr, Davie, Florida
Best Chinese food around and better than most South Miami restaurants to be honest. Great sesame chicken and the owners are genuinely friendly which is hard to find nowadays. I also love their spring rolls! Great and speedy customer service. Adorable kids.
So far, we have been pleased with the food. The dumplings are quite nice and I really love the boneless ribs! YUM!

Platter’s Restaurant

501 US Hwy 27
Lake Placid, 33852
Reviews:
Im suprised at the one review that gave them such a low rating. I have been there several times, both for lunch and Dinner, and Ive been with people who suffer from food alergies as well as with finicky kids. The food was good. Quite good. Im no expert, but I know many people who are greek and who speak volumes about the food. As for them being out of Hummus, I dont doubt it since its popular and very good. The Tzatziki at costco isnt something I can comment on, but considering that I make it fresh myself with fresh lemons, greek style yogurt (not Dannon yogurt or god forbid sour cream), Fresh cucumber, etc.... I know what good Tzatziki sauce should taste like. That being said, some people may get accustomed to the packaged store bought sauces that are so readily available. Whats good to one may not be to another. All I know is that I grew up with a mediterranean heritage. Im Italian with parents who lived in Greece. So im fortunate to have been raised with some serious "good eats". I almost ordered the Chicken parmesan but didnt only because I assumed it wouldnt be as good as what I grew up with. When I saw it brought to another table I was suprised at how good it looked. As for the other review I noticed it said they went there after finding out that two other local restaurants had been closed. It must have been later than they said because I dont know of any restaurants that closes before 8pm, but if in fact Platters was open after other restaurants had closed then that says something by itself. It tells me that after finding a restaurant that closed for the night, the previous reviewer then ventured to find another place only to find that it too was closed. Using their words they "Finally" ended up at Platters. I can only assume that there was quite a bit of time that went by since the first restaurant closed for the night and Platters still remained open. I too might be fatigued after searching and wanting to finally eat. Maybe it was their mood (we all have a day like that), but I will only say two other things before I finish with what my experience was. First, I NEVER judge a restaurant by how crowded it is/isnt at the time of night when other places have closed. I tend to temper my expectations is all. Second, regardless of any updating that one may have an opinion on, I have never found that to be a yard stick of measurement when reviewing food. Again, perhaps the only reason it stood out to them was because of their mood. I cant say for sure, however im just trying to level the playing field here for a truly good restaurant that I personally am glad I found. How do I measure a restaurant? The food of course! The diverse menu at Platters was suprising. If they only had Mousaka the menu would be complete for me! I had a nice time in the lounge on one visit and the staff was more than happy to give me ideas on places to visit while on my trip. I was virtually given a "Must go here.... have to go there... gotta try this...". What made the difference for my wife is that the allergies my wife suffers from is something that the waitress took seriously. My wife is allergic to eggs. When we asked about the ingredients the waitress double checked to make certain it was safe, and she also went as far as to recommend some substitutions that they could do if my wife felt more at ease about it. We typically feel that we are asking a restaurant to bend over backwards when talking about allergies, so it was a real nice experience for all of us. Anyone with allergies or who has someone with food allergies in their family will know what I mean. So if all of that isnt enough to have them as a viable dining option I have one other reason. Their prices. Frankly If I were them Id charge more because where else are you going to find Chicken Parmesan for less than $10... Go ahead.... Im waiting... Seriously. When I go out with my family, have a good time, find that we all like the food, my kid actually eats, my allergy sufferer of a wife feels safe, the people are super friendly, and the price makes you look twice. Sign me up. When im in the area again Im going back. The only reason I gave it 2 dollar signs is because 1 dollar sign would make it sound like a dive, and its not. Now if I can only find out how to get them to put Mousaka on the menu!
This little spot is hit or miss. I came here one day and the chicken fried steak breakfast was one of the best I had ever eaten. This morning, the biscuits were dry and clearly not baked this morning. I've noticed that when the snow birds are here and business is good (Season), the food and service are better and more consistent. In the off season, when the breakfast rush consists of 4 tables - both the service and food are a little less than the quality I know this place is capable of.
First time here, had breakfast it was good . Waitress was sloppily dressed, dirty top, underware showing in back of pants and not a very good waitress either. I hate to rate a place on the staff, if I did I would not be back! But will try again for lunch or dinner another time.

Main Street America An Eatery

22 S Main St
Lake Placid, 33852
Reviews:
Great food and friendly atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Tell Sean that Bill Lewis sent you.
I love breakfast. I didn't love this place. Don't get me wrong - the food was ok but the service left much to be desired and the prices are a bit high given that I can get the same meal with slightly higher food quality and much better service just up the street at a rival breakfast joint. We gave this place a chance and we might give it another, but at first glance, Main Street didn't blow my skirt up. :(
This was a cute little eatery. The decor was very appealing and even a little old fashioned. However, their menu was very limited for vegetarians. They didn't have one single vegetarian entree...not even pasta or a caprese salad. This was very disappointing. I ended up making my own entree of sorts by getting a cup of french onion soup and a baked potato and it was decent for $6. My other complaint is that they only accept cash. I NEVER carry cash..ever. Seriously. I had to borrow money from my co-worker which was super embarrassing. It also was a loss for them because I couldn't leave a tip. I don't understand why they don't at least accept debit cards. Honestly, I probably wont be back until they start accepting cards.

Football Sunday - Miami Dolphins not doing so well. I guess the joke is 25 televisions and nothing to watch....Not their fault. Good bar service - tell Christina that Bill Lewis sent you.
CLOSED!! Sign taped on front door says "closed until further notice" and there's a for sale sign out front. I think it went out of business.
Trivia was fun. Staff was nice. Food was less than what I had expected or hoped for.
