We love this place. Have eaten there three times and each did not disappoint. We would recommend eating dinner outside as the sunsets. During the summer or in the fall this is a can't miss opportunity.

On a hiking trail website to Baxter Mt., the pitch-off directions stated that "if you reach Baxter Mt.Tavern, you've gone too far". The tavern is less than a quarter mile from the trail-head. We sat on their side deck and the view provided a beautiful mountain scene.... More

This is one of our favorite Adirondack restaurants due to excellent food and service. The setting is in the Adirondack high peaks and the view of the woods and mountains is nice but not spectacular. It is a rustic, informal place representative of the Adirondack style. Reasonably priced and great mood setting for region.
