Everyone says GO TO THE DOWNHILL GRILL..well I guess on Sunday and Monday nights there isnt' any other place to go. So we went. And it was crowded. Friendly service...a real bar bar atmosphere. Big Mexican choices like burritos, mediocre steak, basic fattening blah food. But if you are hungry and don't care, go. If you care, about food, this... More

Food was great and prices reasonable. Burgers were hand formed on a homemade bun for $8.95 and big - 1/2 lb! Excellent and friendly service. Cool atmosphere. Packed house at 6 pm on a Monday night. This might be unusual as iron man was the weekend before and Paul smiths was having a reuinion. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Nice place without the exorbitant tourist prices. Nothing too exotic on the menu. Looks like a good place for lunch. I had blackened salmon with black beans and it was a nice portion and the beans were a nice change of pace for a side. The sweet potato fries were really good. My friend had the steak which he enjoyed.... More

Joe and Kenny were originally in Lake Placid and we loved to eat there! Now they moved to Saranac, 20 minutes away, and although it is not as cozy and quaint as it was before, it is still one of the best restaurants in the mountains! Can't think of a thing in all this time on their menu that is... More

Nice local flavor, real friendly service. Good food selection and top notch ingredients and preparation. Large dinning room, but not loud.

This is a great place to stop and eat for burgers and the lobster scallop appetizer is to die for. YUM

We had a drink at the bar while waiting for our table. We were sat after 10 minutes, not bad considering they said it could be a 20 minute wait. We sat at our table, with empty glasses and menus down for 30 minutes. Not one waitress acknowledged us. They all walked by multiple times. We made eye contact and... More

Went in with friends for a quick lunch on their lunch hour. To the restaurant's credit, we were indeed in and out in less than an hour. The menu has a wide selection of lunch type things, sandwiches, salads and a small amount of Mexican inspired items. I ordered a burger with cheese and fries mid-rare. The burger was cooked... More

We have stopped in a few times now for a late lunch, They have a good fish fry in Wednesdays and Fridays. Their Mexican food rivals that of our local Mexican restaurant! The wait staff are friendly and prices are decent. They have a bar that serves bottled beer, draft beer, and mixed drinks. If it is good enough for... More
