“Breakfast out and back”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ate breakfast here before heading out for a canoe and camping trip with oatmeal on the menu for 5 mornings. This place did not disappoint 4 hungry men. The waitresses were very cheerful and helpful. We had another satisfying breakfast on our way back-- after eating the oatmeal in cloudy or rainy mornings.

“Winter Carn Downfall”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

upon arrival to McKenzies, we were NOT greated by a hostess but had to excuse ourselves to ask for a table. As it was winter carnival, we had a large group of people that they could not accommodate… they told us "we will never get our dining room back together" (which was not our problem, as they had just accommodated a largER party moments before) Our waitress greeted us with a "What do you want to drink?" and after two coffees and three waters, she returned for our food order. We were not ready to order and our waitresses response (I'm not sure what her name is as she didnt even greet us or introduce herself) was a sigh of annoyance and a long look at her watch. without a word she then left and came back about 10 minutes later. At this point we were annoyed and had already served ourself coffee refills from the waitress station across the room. our food came out relatively quick but our wait for our check seemed to take forever. when going to pay, we were two seconds away from ringing out ourselves, too. for being such a small-town restaurant (which we ARE locals). We were so excited but so unimpressed. WILL NOT BE GOING BACK!

“Winter Time”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Once again a trip to Saranac Lake for the winter carnival, breakfast was good and hot when served. Soup and pie for lunch were also delicious. Close to the motels so can get busy at times like any small restaurant.

“Poor breakfast”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Extremely disappointing breakfast. Tea bags are poor so be warned - very weak tea even by non-British standards. The "hot"water was cold. Poached eggs were not drained so muffins wre soggy. "Ham " was the thinnest piece of reconstituted meat possible
