Went to Saranac for Restaurant Week. This establishment has great ambiance and spectacular food. Their ability to accommodate dietary restrictions is second to none. The preparation and presentation is appealing and we enjoyed our seats with a window to watch the chef at work. They have a great beer and wine selection. When we explained we only had 30 minutes...

Visited early evening when it wasn't real busy. Quick seating but slow service. About 13 minutes before order taken. Had to ask for water. My burger was good, meatloaf sandwich dry. Waitress did bare minimum. Had a real good stout though.

We went here during restaurant week, which could explain sub-par service and 1/2 of the menu items gone. We went for dinner on a Sunday about 7pm. Was surprised half of our orders were sold out, considering the place was open another 2hrs. We didn't find out until we checked with our server and came back to tell us. Turned... More

On a Saturday night it was a bit crowded but we were seated rather quickly. A variety of brews on tap, plus any mixed drink you could imagine. A lot of interesting old rock and roll posters dot the walls, food was good and arrived hot. Staff were funny, over-worked, and fast. Good value.

Good selection of beers as expected of a public house. More elevated menu than typical pub with vegan and gluten free options. Under 21 friendly.

Very nice place to eat with delicious food. Their draft beer list needs some tweeking. All but one brew had IBUs listed at 20. Also a lot of the beers suspicioulsly had the same ABV. Coincidence?

Had lunch last Saturday with acquaintances that I was in a training class with. Had Thai rice bowl with chicken that was not cooked properly. Was violently sick all Sunday such that I could not finish the class. Called and spoke to a manager there who was lukewarm and unapologetic. Will never return.

Found this place just walking around, looked it up on Yelp & TripAdvisor good reviews all around. This place lives up to the reviews. Good service, and very diverse menu full or lots of good food. I went with the thai flatbread, was more like thin crust pizza, but really thats all I can complain about. It was amazingly good.... More

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.
