We had walked around the town on a rainy Saturday evening and came back here based on a recommendation from Blue Line Brewery, new in town with great local microbrews! Had a few great local brews- Lake Placid IPA, UBU, and Saranac Ale, and reliable Woodchuck cider. A big fan of the grilled buffalo chicken salad, and the Mexican Flag... More

We reached Saranac Lake at the end of a 9-hour drive and met our son who was exhausted from cycling 3 hours to meet us. For Friday of Labor Day Weekend, the place was not particularly busy so we had very quick and helpful service. My son's NY Strip was done just right and was reported to be very flavorful.... More

After 4 days canoe camping, we were looking for some greasy, fatty, high calorie food -- and we found it! I had a burger, cooked just the way I wanted it, and some awesome fries. Restaurant has a nice variety on their menu and a nice selection of local craft beers. My only complaint would be that they didn't give... More

This restaurant is an easy 10 minute walk from the Lake Flower Inn on Saranac Lake. It's a good size restaurant that can accommodate large groups with great food and a fun atmosphere. They have a great beer and wine selection. Our waitress came over to our table as soon as we sat, took our drink order and was back... More

The food once we got our orders straight was good. I ordered baked-got mashed, grandson asked for sour cream, took 10 minutes to get what we ordered. To their positive: the green beans were fresh and excellent. The brisket was moist. Drinks were good.

My wife and I stopped here last year during a summer shopping trip and enjoyed it. So, today as I riding my motorcycle through Saranac Lake, I decided to stop in for lunch. The place is comfortable, clean, and has lots of space. Service is attentive and quick. I ordered a burger... and was very happy it. It was cooked... More

Having made an unplanned side trip through the Adirondacks we arrived in Saranac in the evning. Upon visiting a wine shop to purchase some local wine we asked for dinner recommendations. We described the kind of meal we wanted we were given two names. We opted for this one and were pleased. It was good food, well served, in a... More

Went here for a beer and ended to getting wings and fries too. Had the handcut Cajun fries and they were yummy. My husband likes to think he is an authority on chicken wings and they passed the test. Cooked just right and the blue cheese was awesome. Homemade, I was told. The bartender was friendly. If you're looking for... More
