This BBQ place sits on main street of Lake Placid, they do not take reservations, so come early . We arrived at 4:45 and got a seat out on their deck over looking the lake, by 5:30 the wait was an hour to sit on the deck. Great service, my wife had the Salmon, and i had the the half ribs, both were outstanding. Almost forgot we started off with the Brisket pie croquettes very different but very good. This place has a very good reputation, and we can see why.

Was in Lake Placid for a lacrosse tournament and wanted some good BBQ. Had seen the reviews on Smoke Signals and decieded it was worth a try. We had a large party of 5 adults and 3 kids. We went early—4pm— when they opened as the little ones needed to eat This restaurant does not take reservation. The view of Mirror Lake is beautiful. There is both inside and outside seating. Our server was Maggie and she was excellent. She got our orders totally correct even with the special requests that were made. She was excellent about bringing more water as well as checking back to see if everything was ok. We had appetizers as well as entrees. The portion sizes are huge. 3 of the adults had brisket and all three declared it the best brisket that they have ever eaten. The corn bread is delicious and probably sone of the best corn bread that we have ever eaten. If you are in Lake Placid, definitely go to Smoke Signals!!!

My wife and I always search out best restaurants by talking to local residents. System worked again. Smoke Signals rivaled any BBQ we have had in K.C., St. Louis and Memphis.
Sampler platter of brisket, pulled pork, ribs and burnt ends did not disappoint. Healthy portions with corn bread and fresh veggies along side. Waiter was top notch. View of Mirror Lake added to our nice evening.

I was not seeking massive portions due to a late breakfast, but was impressed that many of the inviting barbeque items on the extensive menu provided 2 portion options w/ 2 prices. I had my eye on the smokey-flavored bacon bit-infused mac and cheese and the sautéed brussell sprouts, along w/ one of the exotic brews on tap (was a good choice). My mate decided on a salad which came mounted high on the plate but required an extra side of ranch. Her house chardonnay is one I (we) have supped before (cupcake) and was glorious, though a tad expensive for a house wine. overall we enjoyed our experience, though had to wait a bit longer than i'd like, esp. since our parking meter was beckoning us to feed it more (or suffer the consequences). prices, were fair for what you get.
