“The Best Breakfast and Lunch in Saranac Lake, they serve Dinner too.”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

This is a popular family owned and run restaurant in the down town area. There is a steady group of regular locals and very popular with tourists. The place is unpretentious and that charm is appreciated by most, but from reading some reviews, is a put off for a minority. The owners obviously work very hard and their hard work has made the restaurant successful and popular. It's one of those places you feel really good about giving your business to. During event weekends other busy times, it works well to think ahead and try to miss the peak hours by going for and early or late breakfast or lunch. Few people seem to know they are open for dinner. My experience was wow, the food is really good and really reasonably priced. We were the only ones eating dinner, apparently it is still a secret. It was a different experience to have fine dining quality food in a diner like setting at diner like prices.

“Nice for Lunch”
Reviewed July 18, 2009

We stopped at this restaurant on a recent trip to the Saranac Lake area. We had a couple of the sandwiches, which were good. However, the restaurant could use some extra cleaning and the service was incredibly slow.

“The best eats in saranac”
Reviewed July 4, 2009

The Blue Moon was always great, but it just keeps getting better and better and better. The owners Ken and trish are continuing their complete overhaul of the space and menu, and not only does the place look spectacular, but the menu is huge, eclectic, unique, and the food is, as always, superb. If you haven;t been there in a while, go back! If it is your first trip to the tri-lakes, you've got to go!!!

P.S. They are open late fo dinner now, and the coffee is the best I'ver had just about anywhere (and it's not Green Mountain, as some other reviewer says)

“Good Food - Fair service, dirty floors, needs paint!”
Reviewed February 18, 2009

Stopped by on 2/17/09 for lunch. Food was tasty and warm. Good soup and sandwich. Great looking pastries. Staff not overly friendly. Carpet in need of cleaning. Dining room in need of painting. Ladies room not the cleanest. Would not return the next time we are in Saranac Lake.
