Invited by friends to try this former diner that catered a relatives party. Nice casual interior with a live musician on a Wed. Night. Wonderfully fresh salads and overall great entrees including pork tenderloin, lamb chops and scallops. One star removed for linguine with clams as they were very... read more

So refreshing to know where your food comes from! We had the Sunday brunch and I never had eggs potatoes or toast so fresh no exaggeration. The chef added real hot peppers and generous portions of goat cheese. We will definitely be back and excited to try the dinner and amazing organic wine list.

Outstanding gluten free menu. Food and service was terrific. Gluten free cheese cake is out of this world. Strongly recommend!

First time at Fifty South and we will definitely be going back. We had a Living Social deal which covered 1 appetizer, two entrees, two glasses of wine and a dessert for two people. Complimentary homemade potato "chips" with olive tapenade was a tasty start. We then had the Spicy Calamari appetizer with sweet chili thai sauce. It was absolutely... More

The veggie pot stickers were blackened. The vegetarian entree wasn't that great either. The lady who served us wasn't that attentive.

Friends brought us to this restaurant for dinner after a day at the Saratoga track. While the restaurant appeared to be a fairly typical small town road house from the outside, the menu and service truly distinguished it. The menu features local produce and meat products and provides a number of interesting vegan and vegetarian options. The service was exceedingly... More

My daughter has Celiac's Disease, and can not eat even the smallest amount of gluten. This restaurant understands this and has a certified gluten free kitchen. The food is excellent and the staff is knowledgeable. Fresh local products are used which is great for the area economy. There is a regular menu, and a menu of daily specials. The majority... More

Four adults and one ravenous teen made the experience interesting. There were less than twenty people in the restaurant and the wait time was inexplicable. All of the food was good but I think the kitchen staff was out back fishing for the three orders of salmon. Probably about an hour before we were served our entrées and the server... More

Family and I went to Fifty South last night and it was the best meal I have had in the Saratoga Region in a very long time. Everything we ordered was excellent from the tuna app to the duck entree. I'm glad I found this restaurant as I am always on the hunt for a great restaurant in the area.
