Dad and I got up late today, had a nice ham and egg breakfast and then headed out on the trails with no specific destination in mind.
As is often the case in our neck of the Adirondacks, we ended up only a few miles from The Backwoods Inn (previously known as Ham’s Inn) around lunchtime.
It’s an awesome little local bar/restaurant. The top of the bar has pictures of the locals embedded in a clear coat of some kind. There’s a Newfoundland that likes to wander around inside and out and greets every snowmobiler that comes through the door.
The menu is just typical American food: subs, wings, burgers etc but the food is excellent and their portions are insanely huge. They have a multiple-pound-burger that’s free if you eat it all. Even their normal sized burger is too big for most people. Dad had a regular burger and could only finish half of it. I had a grilled ham and cheese and couldn’t even come close to finishing the fries.
Its located on route 56 in Parishville right near the route 3 intersection. Filled with local flair and great food. If you’re looking for it from the snowmobile trails it’s on 73 on the eastern most section of 7A right along route 56.
Eat there if you get the chance!
