Very good food at good prices. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend! Sandwiches were prepared perfect and portions were very large.

We miss them! They moved from Lake Placid to Saranac, have to travel ten miles to get my fix. Great sandwiches and soups. Great service, nice people and place.

We always enjoy stopping here after a few days of camping in the Adirondacks. Well prepared food, portion is decent, service is right on. Plenty to choose from the menu.

The food here is always great but the service is always horrible. The woman we had was just miserable. She seemed to have no sense of humor and didn't check on us at all. Again, great food and atmosphere but the service is just always so lack luster. They should really invest in good servers, not high school kids looking... More

Take Mother Out Of the Kitchen, Do It Today! Great place to go for lunch or dinner. Plenty of tasty choices from soup to desserts.

I had the Rueben and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were tasty and delivered quickly. They have some decent beers on tap and my gin and tonic was generous. We would definitely go back again. It was pretty full of locals which is a good indication that it's reliably good food. Recommended!

Relaxing atmosphere, friendly and attentive service and the most delicious batter-fried fish we have ever had. Reasonably priced, well prepared food. All around great place!

Went here with my mom and sister, we all ordered burgers since another reviewer said they were good. Excellent taste juiceness and flavor!! Really the best burger I've had in ages! Great service too.
