Food was great and prices reasonable. Burgers were hand formed on a homemade bun for $8.95 and big - 1/2 lb! Excellent and friendly service. Cool atmosphere. Packed house at 6 pm on a Monday night. This might be unusual as iron man was the weekend before and Paul smiths was having a reuinion. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Nice place without the exorbitant tourist prices. Nothing too exotic on the menu. Looks like a good place for lunch. I had blackened salmon with black beans and it was a nice portion and the beans were a nice change of pace for a side. The sweet potato fries were really good. My friend had the steak which he enjoyed. The only disappointment was that they don't serve bread. Apparently there is not a good bakery in Saranac Lake. Service was very good and friendly.

Joe and Kenny were originally in Lake Placid and we loved to eat there! Now they moved to Saranac, 20 minutes away, and although it is not as cozy and quaint as it was before, it is still one of the best restaurants in the mountains! Can't think of a thing in all this time on their menu that is not GREAT! I could eat their chicken firecrackers every single day!! Fantastic, pure white meat, large pieces and hot as can be, but out of this world!! Darn good appetizer along with many others. Chicken fingers, the biggest and best chimichanga, with whatever inside you like I have ever eaten, wonderful burgers, homemade soups, delicious meat dishes, a great fish fry, excellent homemade french fries and real mashed potatoes, good lunches and good dinners and not out of sight prices. An impressive meal to take your guests to eat there. Darn good desserts too but I would LOVE the boys to bring back the fried ice cream, it was the best in the world!.....waiters and waitresses are good depending on who you get, but normally you never wait and it is getting fuller and fuller as the time passes and more people try Downhill. Had turkey there once the day after Thanksgiving and it was like eating at home, perfect and real off the bone turkey, mashed potatoes, could have eaten there and loved my Thanksgiving just as much. We are not drinkers but the bar is off to the side and always full. We love it even if it moved further away from us. And you don't have to empty your wallet to treat your company from out of town.....darn good place to eat!!

Nice local flavor, real friendly service. Good food selection and top notch ingredients and preparation. Large dinning room, but not loud.

This is a great place to stop and eat for burgers and the lobster scallop appetizer is to die for. YUM
