Over the years we have eaten here many times. Service is wonderful, great food and love the atmosphere. So glad you moved from Lake Placid to Saranac Lake.

“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

The ambient was nice and welcoming. Bob was my server and barkeep, he was excellent! I ordered the Fajita (steak) dinner and it was reasonably priced. When the food arrived it was sizzling hot. While the fajitas tasted good, the seasoning did not tast mexican and to much oil in the dish. That was the only let down. The portion was hug enough for two. The tortias were not hand made, but store bought. But finding hand made tortias in Northen NY is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. So I can not dock them too much for store bought tortias. Everything else was excllent! The rest of the staff seem to be very nice.

My recommendation would be to improve the seasoning in the fajitas and if possible make hand made tortias would be great. Their is nothing like them, take it from an old southern boy. I would defiantly try the place again.

“Thanks for your efficent staff”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We showed up on New Year's Eve at 6:00 without a reservation and the staff handled not only us, but a number of people with large parties, very efficiently. We waited only 25 minutes and were continually updated as to when we would be seated. The atmosphere in the restaurant and the bar had a local tinge and everyone was very friendly. The burger was average and the salmon was properly cooked. Will go back another time when it is not New Year's Eve!
