Excellent Food & Service - One of Spokane's Better Downtown Eateries

I was part of a large group that dropped by the Saranac after an evening meeting. Although busy, they graciously moved some tables around to accommodate our larger party. After being seated, we were promptly greeted by our waiter, who provided menu's and took subsequent drink orders. The menu... read more

Ate here last week while attending a conference in Spokane. Very nice space with a great atmosphere. I had the burger and a salad (which was delicious, but drowned in dressing-- my only complaint). My friend had the vegetarian bean burger, which she loved, and a Mac and Robin (?) IPA. Prices were reasonable, food was fresh and tasty, and... More

We were looking for a place in walking distance from our hotel and ran into Saranac. We were greeted and seated quickly. We were immediately impressed by our server because we ordered a particular beer and the tap was out but she came to share the bad news with a sample tasting of another recommendation. It's a must that your... More

There are lots of reasons this is a great place to eat. Location right by places to have dessert, hear music or catch an art flick. Lots of unique side dishes and appetizers. Try hummus platter, yum. Home made fries or home made chips, great. Burgers fabulous. Not perfect, nor 100% consistent. When done well, the home made mac and... More

Likes: easy to walk to since Black Label Brewing was next door. Good food, fairly quick service. Dislikes: in the middle of the commotion, but hard to get away from it. Overall, way more positives.
