Best place in all of Lake Placid.

Best BBQ
This place was highly recommend to us during our visit to Lake Placid. We had the most amazing wait staff- a man named Mark - he was so friend and helpful and he knew the menu! He throughly explained the dishes and made the evening enjoyable. Mark’s service is the epitome of what a good waiter should be! Thank you Mark! The food was ... read more

Enjoyed the sample platter and some sides that ended up being generous portions and some locally made root beer. Great service and great barbecue with a lovely view of the lake made for a delightful experience.

Lives up to the hype. Wife and I shared the carved brisket platter, which was a great decision because they give you enough for three. Collared greens were great, brisket was melt in your mouth. Drinks were great, will definitely come back when we are back in town.

A return and still great!
I first ate here in 2019 during a hockey tournament in Lake Placid. It was great then, so I had to try it again and I do believe it is even better than last time. I truly believe that this is THE restaurant that you have to drop into if you are in Lake Placid. Everything was done perfectly and the waitstaff were great as well. I hope ... read more

First time here tonight won't be the last. Everything I mean everything was good. The staff, the view, and last but not least the BBQ. You really can't go wrong with anything you choose as long as you're first choice is going here.

Right on mirror lake, outdoor seating. BBQ food is great, they do a great job with their brisket... they do have a limited amount available because they do make it on site the day of and so they can run out of the brisket if they've had a busy day and didn't make enough. However, they do have some other good choices!
Elizabeth G. via - Jun 9, 2022
This is a very popular place so get there early to get on the waiting list, it's worth it. I ordered the brisket and they gave me enough for 3 meals. The garlic mashed potatoes were some of the best I've had. Very friendly staff, and great service. If you're looking for cheap food, go to McDonald's.

There isn't a bad place to eat in Lake Placid, but, Smoke Signals is the Best place in Lake Placid for BBQ and many other dishes. Their Ribs, Brisket and Pulled pork are amazing!

This place was amazing! They have a good selection of drinks, and they do not only have beer on tap, they also have some mixed drinks as well. We had some wings as the started, we had the dry rub, which isn't my favorite, but they tasted good. For entre, I had the flatliner burger, and it was amazing! I would highly recommend it.

Excellent at What It Does - Serving Smoked Meats
My wife and I wanted a straightforward US meal after dining mostly on French food in Quebec. Smoke Signals provided the perfect dishes - ribs with three different sauces, bacon-studded mac and cheese, and collard greens. Accompanying these dishes with a view of the lake and locally brewed beers, we enjoyed exactly the meal we hoped f ... read more

Best French Dip
My husband says the French dip is the best he’s ever had, and he orders the French dip every where we go. I had the pulled pork. The bartender brought out a flight of different sauces for me to try (the maple honey one is unique).
mcknzhayes via - May 21, 2022
I take a trip to lake Placid every year to hike some mountains and Smoke Signals is an absolute necessity. Some of the best BBQ I've ever had and year after year it seems to get better.

Fantabulous bourbon selection. Beef brisket was killer!! Couldn't finish it without CPR. Michelle provided excellent service!! A must go to!

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

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

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!
