Having made an unplanned side trip through the Adirondacks we arrived in Saranac in the evning. Upon visiting a wine shop to purchase some local wine we asked for dinner recommendations. We described the kind of meal we wanted we were given two names. We opted for this one and were pleased. It was good food, well served, in a relaxed atmosphere. I think we were there at the perfect time, dusk. It is also a bar and may have a geard up a bit after our time there. Just right for us.

Went here for a beer and ended to getting wings and fries too. Had the handcut Cajun fries and they were yummy. My husband likes to think he is an authority on chicken wings and they passed the test. Cooked just right and the blue cheese was awesome. Homemade, I was told. The bartender was friendly. If you're looking for 5 star steak dinner this isn't your place, but if you want a good meal, in a friendly relaxed environment this is it. It's busy, so be prepared, but there are only a handful of places to eat in this town, so it's expected.

On our vacation in 2012, we had several good meals here with prompt service. This time, however, we didn't fare so well. The service was probably some of the worst we've ever had anywhere and the food was mediocre at best. Very disappointed and did not return all week. Based on other reviews, service and quality of food must be very "hit or miss" with Downhill Grill and we "missed."

Everyone says GO TO THE DOWNHILL GRILL..well I guess on Sunday and Monday nights there isnt' any other place to go. So we went. And it was crowded. Friendly service...a real bar bar atmosphere. Big Mexican choices like burritos, mediocre steak, basic fattening blah food. But if you are hungry and don't care, go. If you care, about food, this is not a place for a foody.
Salads were good but again, this is really feels like an apres ski kinda bar bar food atmosphere.

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!
