Our lunch party was busy discussing things and I had not looked very closely at the menu. I was jealous when somebody in our party ordered the mac & cheese as I am on a gluten free/dairy free diet. The waitress pointed out the sans gluten dairy option for mac & cheese. It was absolutely delicious. 2 thumbs up! The... More

My wife and I recently had lunch at The Saranac Public House and I highly recommend checking it out. I tried the Jalapeño Bacon Burger and she ordered the Pesto Chicken sandwich. Both of us were totally satisfied with the food. There are vegan and gluten-free options available also. Happy Hour (all day on Sundays, too) is one of the... More

My family loves the Thai Rice bowl (as did my friend this visit). Service was great, attentive server who was friendly and helpful. We were celebrating a... More

Stopped by for a late weekday lunch with family. The kalua pork was delicious, as was the goat cheese spinach pizza and pork tacos. Everything was freshly prepared, and there was enough variety on the menu to please all the palates in our group. Nice selection of brews also!

It's difficult to travel with dietary restrictions. Saranac was PERFECT for my husband and I because I have to maintain a strict gluten-free diet and he can eat whatever he likes. They tailor each offering to standard, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan diets. PLUS, they have an excellent drink menu - including GF ales and a few ciders too. The service... More

Never been to Saranac Public House for a small gathering of friends to celebrate a new business, but it is a great venue. Dinner there is always good, too.

We sat at a table in the bar area so our server was also the bartender - he was really friendly, gave good recommendations, and attentive. For dinner, we ordered the burger with a side of mac & cheese and the pulled pork sandwich with a a house side salad. The burger was AMAZING - we would highly recommend it.... More

Walked in after walking round the block to Saranac and was quite surprised at how good the Kahlua Pork was. Salsa and chips was good too though a tad bit too spicy after a few mouthfuls. Will be back to try the other items if I'm ever in Spokane again

Place was dirty. The walls and posters were covered with food. Now the food,.....wish I had smeared it on the walls instead of trying to eat it. Had the chili. Awful. Caesar Salad was ok. Nothing worth going back for.
