It's been a few years since I have been to Gaffney's for dinner. They have a great bar scene, but before it was a big bar scene, it was a restaurant. The décor at Gaffney's hasn't changed much in years. Which, if you know Saratoga, sometimes it feels nice to go to one of the old, classic Saratoga restaurants and... More

A Saratoga legend, and a consistent top finisher in Chowderfest every year, this place is a real winner. Great food, good drinks, wonderful dessert selections, great corps of bartenders and servers, and a lively outdoor Summer patio.

Gaffney's is huge. There are two bars, an inside dining room and a huge outside space. Gaffney's is completely packed on weekend nights during track season - seriously, you can hardly move on the patio or in the bar. Off-season, the small bar (next to the popcorn machine!), is a nice place to get a beer. The larger bar on... More

A few friends came into town and we all met up at Gaffney's. It was a great atmosphere with live music! We will be returning time and time again with more family, and more friends! The guys behind the bar where great!

I have to say the NY Strip steak topped with the Greek shrimp scampi was excellent. The stake was perfectly cooked and every bite was tender and delicious. That followed after a very good French onion soup as an appetizer made my evening. The atmosphere was quiet and only one other couple was dining in the restaurant on this late... More

After a day at the race track we wandered around downtown Saratoga and stumbled across Gaffney's. Live music echoed fro the courtyard and the price was right so we went in. The hostess seated us on an upper deck where we could hear the excellent musicians but still have conversation. The server appeared promptly with white bean and balsamic hummus... More

My wife and I visited Gaffney's for lunch and asked for outdoor seating on account of the beautiful weather that afternoon. Most of the people were probably out at the track so the restaurant was nice and comfy, not too crowded but still with most of the outdoor tables filled. My wife ordered the buffalo chicken wrap and I ordered... More

I have been here many times in the last 30 years while visiting Saratoga and I always go back. The same lady has been the hostess/manager for years and she even remembered me from past years!!! Service was prompt and food excellent and not even too pricey for the location and time of year. Gaffney's is like an old friend... More

We visited for dinner after our track day, got in easily and chose a table inside rather than out on the patio (it was a little loud with the live entertainment). Everything we sampled was spot on, both in presentation and taste. Pricing was more than reasonable, quality was excellent and we truly enjoyed it. We will be back next... More
