EZ Walk, Good Menu

We chose this as it had pretty good reviews, was close to our hotel and we needed an early dinner. Get a table on the porch if you can. The menu had so much to offer and we were too tired to do it justice. The quick, friendly seating and service left no room for complaint. We just ordered... read more

We have gone here for breakfast a couple of times now and really enjoyed it each time. Great omelettes and flapjacks. Good value for money and great place to start a walk down Saranac Avenue where all the little shops are.

It was OK. Certainly nothing special. I ordered the crab cake which was good however it would have been better if it were other than Luke warm. My wife's humus plate was also Ok. Some of the vegetables appeared old and the hummus had little flavor. She said it reminded her of library paste. I would suggest you try somewhere... More

Stayed at Golden Arrow, so we were able to capitalize on All-Day Happy Hour! Deals included $2 beer bottles and a 10 wing and a pint deal for $10. The Jalapeno BBQ is awesome, and so is the Garlic Parm if you are looking for that. Breakfast was very good as well. The outdoor dining accommodations were great. The bartender... More

This is a very nice restaurant, with outdoor dining and good views of Mirror Lake . The food was very good, although the salmon portion was on the small side. Staff was very friendly too. Would recommend to a friend.

We had a nice lunch on the deck- soup and sandwiches with side salads. Portions were a nice size and we left full. The prices were very reasonable and we would go back again.

After climbing the highest peak in the Adirondacks, 7 of us went to this restaurant at 9pm on a Saturday night. We were served nachos without any cheese (one of 3 basic ingredients for nachos) and it was brought back 5 minutes later with melted fake cheese sauce which was unpalatable. One person's burger order was forgotten for 15 minutes... More
