Went for dinner and drinks at Saranac before a concert. Our server was pretty good. The menu had a good selection of beer and mixed drinks. Both cocktails I ordered were SO strong (better than too weak I guess)! But my friends' drinks were good. My food was okay. The house salad with apples and nuts was nice, but the... More

This restaurant had interesting decor and a warm ambience with good pub food. Even though the place was bustling, the service was exceptional. A good IPA beer with our meal hit the spot. The prices were reasonable and selection was more than ample.

Recommended by hotel for lunch. Comfortable bar. Good food selection! Burgers are huge. Chicken wrap good. Needed more chicken though. Attentive staff.

Love the atmosphere! The food is really really tasty and the music venue is the best in town. My family and I have been there many times. We came for the music and discovered food excellent.

Spokane is pretty walkable for a western town. We walked via the river park from our hotel over to Main St to find Saranac. It is in an old office building but the facility is in fine shape. Lots of young people there for after work libations. The service was very good. We chose poorly, but not because it wasn't... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the outdoor seating area after choosing Saranac for it's numerous vegan and vegetarian options in order accommodate all of our family members. Everyone was quite pleased with their meals. Our meals were prepared and delivered quickly after we informed our server of our need to depart for the airport within an hour of arriving.... More

Whoa! Major disappointment. To say server was uninterested is generous. Sunday evening, a large party had left, yet our server obviously could not have cared less. Asked for water, one glass eventually appeared. Asked for bread with dinner, one dried piece of toast was placed on the table. Food was lacking anything special in flavor and portions decidedly miserly. Overall,... More
