Nestled in the heart of New York State's historic Adirondack Park High Peaks region, just 2 miles off the main route to the Olympic village of Lake Placid, you will find a unique dining experience. The Baxter Mountain Tavern is a real Adirondack gem, a rustic restaurant sitting in a highland valley between the Giant and Hurricane Mountain wilderness. Since the doors opened in 1997, founder Dave Deyo greeted the public with a welcome alternative to the hustle and bustle of urban life with classic American cuisine and a warm family atmosphere. Now, the new owner looks to continue that tradition and at the same time adapt the menu to the meet various dietary needs and choices of many patrons while still keeping those long-standing local favorites.
