upon arrival to McKenzies, we were NOT greated by a hostess but had to excuse ourselves to ask for a table. As it was winter carnival, we had a large group of people that they could not accommodate… they told us "we will never get our dining room back together" (which was not our problem, as they had just accommodated...

Once again a trip to Saranac Lake for the winter carnival, breakfast was good and hot when served. Soup and pie for lunch were also delicious. Close to the motels so can get busy at times like any small restaurant.

It was conveniently located across from our lodging (Gauthiers) with prompt, friendly service and good food.

Extremely disappointing breakfast. Tea bags are poor so be warned - very weak tea even by non-British standards. The "hot"water was cold. Poached eggs were not drained so muffins wre soggy. "Ham " was the thinnest piece of reconstituted meat possible

Stayed nearby and ate breakfast here everyday for a week and was pleased every day. Nothing fancy but consistently delicious.

Don't think I have had better breakfasts anywhere. Friendly, quick service. Very clean facility. Did not have opportunity to try lunch or dinner as we were other places sightseeing at those times. Hotcakes were the best I have had out in a long time and different styles of eggs were perfectly cooked for both of us. Definitely recommend it.

This restaurant is a real friendly, down home, comfy place to share breakfast or lunch (they are not open for dinner) with family, friends or by yourself. The food is great, the staff is efficient and helpful and you'll find yourself among many locals here.
