If you like BBQ, this is the place to go. Our waiter Logan provided great service. His suggestions were spot on and the portions were huge. Everything was out of this world. We are planning a trip back to visit again!

Pretty good - nice view
My wife and I stopped in for lunch on an April Saturday. We were greeted and seated very quickly at a high top with ab great view of the lake. A bus person brought us water and the server came over the see if we wanted to order appetizers. There was a moment of confusion when I asked for a menu and the server told me that you have to ... read more

My friend and I had a great experience here! We were able to walk in and get a table right away on a Friday evening with a great view of the water. (Note that this is mid-April so definitely "off-season" for Lake Placid.) The food was fresh & delicious, and the portions were generous. All of the meats and sauces are made in-house, an ... read more

Amazing place! Ribs and wings are one of the best I have ever had. Definitely recommend when you are in the area!
Dennis Klotz via - Apr 16, 2022
Wow. Such great smoked brisket! And the portions are HUGE. Started out with the wings. They give you 5 or 10. Lots of different varieties of sauces. I have never had wings with so much meat on them. The brisket was fantastic and $32. Make sure you ask for all of the sauces to see which you like the best. Expect to take a doggy ba ... read more

Super wonderful evening. April 7, 2022 Very pleasantly surprised. We were in town for a wedding and arrived the day before. The resort recommended a different restaurant but we decided to go here.

Solid, good eating
We ate dinner here several evenings and sampled several of the offerings. The food was satisfying and not excessively filling. The beef brisket is a house specialty and not to be missed if you even remotely like beef!

This is the best restaurant in Lake Placid, hands down! We make it a stop every time we are in town and really like the online waitlist on their website. I would highly recommend this place!

Some friends of ours recommended Smoke Signals, so we’ve been wanting to try it for a while. They always have a 2-hr wait, so come early for dinner! They did have the high top tables next to the bar open when we checked at the hostess station, so we jumped on those and ordered at the bar. A great option for just two people!

Fantastic. Wonton nachos were top notch, and a unique app that we haven't experienced before anywhere else, and we were so glad we took the chance on them! Blackberry margarita strong and refreshing.

This was hands down the best restaurant in Lake Placid. The meat here is so tender and flavorful, and they smoke their brisket for so long it comes out extremely tasty.

Great food, excellent service
The folks at Smoke Signals know their stuff! The food was excellent all around. Mainly a barbecue place, the menu has many meat based dishes, but they were very accommodating for vegetarian options and substituted grilled tofu for the dishes that would normally come with pulled pork or other barbecued meats. Keira, the hostess that e ... read more

Jason Battaglia via - Feb 17, 2022
I've had BBQ from Texas, Memphis, and many other places and I will say this is by far the best I've had bar none. They have very knowledgeable staff from bartenders to waiters and all made in house seasonings and sauces. The brisket was moist and piled high, the pulled pork was excellent, and I never had better sauce. I'll be back.
Dan Cotter via - Feb 17, 2022

The entire experience was wonderful. I love a Rueben Sandwich and I have now found the best in the world!

I highly recommend trying their brisket and wings too!! YUM ... read more
