Absolutely amazing food! Recommended by a couple of different people to us so we tried it out on vacation with family (5 of us total). Every single one of us was blown away by the amount and quality of the meat and side dishes. Brisket was hands down some of the best meat I've ever had. Waiter Logan was super helpful and gave us the ... read more

Great deal for the meal. Gonna have to wait if you need a big table. Brisket french dip was really good. All the sides were good too, but the Mac and Cheese stood out. Kid menu were perfect for kids even with portion size.

Amazing place, great service and the best BBQ my husband and I have ever had! Tucked in a cute little downtown in Lake Placid—worth the wait and plenty of charming stores in which to browse while you wait your turn! Sit on the outside patio overlooking Mirror Lake—perfect!

Decent restaurant with a nice atmosphere and cool views. The tacos were alright, nothing life changing as what others seemed to suggest.

Ordered the brisket, Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes for pick up. Brisket was so tender I hardly needed to chew it, not to mention delicious- as were the sides. Only drawback was the sides weren't included and I had to wait about 20 minutes past the pick up time. Not a problem as a seat opened up at the bar-- and the brisket was ... read more

The food here was really great, the restaurant is beautiful and the views are amazing. My only problem was that I guess due to Covid they are giving out disposable silverware instead or regular silverware, which is still fine except the ones they are using are made of wood. I've never seen this before, and I think theres a good reaso ... read more

I was a little bit leery about their reservation system ( the charge $15/person to reserve a table, placed on your card and deducted once you get your bill) but it worked out smoothly. The food was great. We both got the bbq meatloaf, and a number of sides. The food was excellent, and servers were very attentive. I would highly recom ... read more

Great food! Had the flatliner, good stuff.
Clayton Smalley via google.com - Jul 15, 2021
The food is still amazing, the service is still wonderful, but you get a lot less for your money here than you did in 2019. From smaller appetizers for more money, to having to ask for bbq sauce, and no included sides. I am not normally a complainer but it's really noticeable. Don't get me wrong I will still go once everytime I am i ... read more

We walked in about 8:30 and the bar and some tables were open. Ordered food and it arrived within 10 mins along with our drinks. I ordered the Burnt ends and my friend ordered the brisket.

We ordered to go. We got the ribs, brisket, burnt ends and wings. The wings and the brisket were amazing. Wings had a lot of flavor and were tender. The brisket was so tender and juicy. We were okay with the burnt ends and the ribs were just way too dry and overcooked.

Best brisket around! Food is always a homerun here as is the service. The BBQ nachos with brisket, Flatliner, and brisket are our favorites. Beautiful lakeside setting with open air seating and views of the mountains. This place is a gem!

I loved this place mostly because of our waiter his name was jake or jack and he was such a cool guy, even when he had alot to do he was probably the nicest waiter i have ever had. I truly belive he deserves a raise or promotion or both.

We got to-go food (not ready to dine indoors with unvaccinated child and it was scheduled to rain all night) but if you have a chance to eat on the patio- take it. The views are awesome!

I was visiting Lake Placid with a group of friends and we had dinner at Smoke Signals. Amazing food. Brisket was the best. Great service and pricing. Reservations can only be made 2 days in advance. You will definitely need one. The line was out the door without one. A must try bbq stop.

You'll smell this place well before you get there. And hurry up because they fill up fast. Food is on point with a great beer selection but what steals the show is the whiskey menu!!! They do a neat 3oz pour for X.XX or a 1oz pour for X.XX so you can taste or just grab a big ass glass of your favorite!!

Visited with family in December. Was a little off put by the charge to make a reservation. Yes it did entice us not to cancel and was later tacked on to the bill but for 8 people it was a pretty hefty charge. Not sure if this is standard practice but might deter us from going in the future. Food was served promptly and was very good.

This was so fantastic! We had to wait for a table on the deck but it was well worth it. Our favorite meal of the entire vacation. The brisket French dip was out of this world delicious and enough for two meals.... We got the nachos, burger, and pulled pork. Can't wait to come back!

The best ribs I’ve ever had in my entire life. I am very picky about my ribs, and these were just right. And most importantly they were not dry.

The food and the view are UNMATCHED! I understand they had to make a new menu due to Covid-19, but we very much miss the sweetheart platter which had brisket, pulled pork and ribs with 2 sides and cornbread! It was the greatest option for tasting all the BBQ that this place offers!

Smoke Signals has a variety of different BBQ dishes. While some of our party of eight had more traditional fare, others enjoyed the BBQ tacos made with chicken, brisket, and pulled pork.
