I have been to Gaffneys many times since 1980 (I go to the races a few days every year) and it is always consistent. Was there the last Wednesday night of racing season and food and service was very good. We sat outside and my only "complaint" is the band was a little loud. It was hard to hold a... More

Had a great meal at Gaffney's on our vacation. They have outdoor seating with music on certain nights during racing season. Excellent menu choice, from light inexpensive meals to more costly full course choices. The food and service is excellent.

I grew up in Saratoga and spent many many summers there as well as a lot of time both at the track and also celebrating afterwards. We ALWAYS made Gaffneys our primary destination after a day of betting. Sure we hit a few other Caroline St locations before and after, but the majority of our time was spent here. Why?... More

There were only 2 wait staff but the mussels were yummy and the drafts were cold. Grilled cheese suited the toddlers. The French fries had shaved sea salt--- sooooo good. We sat in front deck and did a bit of people watching.

Although SIRSY has relocated to Gaffney's for Sunday nights for track season, the food at Gaffney's is another reason to stop by. Friendly service, very reasonable prices, and good food and drinks. The garden can be impassable on some nights, especially Saturdays. We had the best time on Sunday with the "Little Band. Big Sound." (Boston Globe, Boston, MA quote,... More

My friends and I had been going to another local spot after the races for years. We recently decided to try Gaffneys as a change. We had been there years ago and became a little bored with it. Our return was pleasantly a surprise. The wait staff was great. The outdoor covered patio was airy and there was a band... More

Sat outside, had some drinks and listened to a local band. Very nice, give it a try. Very nice service and calm group, no wild bar scene here.

Went to Gaffney's for a late dinner after opening day at the track. We were seated fairly quickly but the service was so slow and inattentive that it was literally hard to believe. We ordered wings as an appetizer and pasta for dinner. It took 45 minutes for the wings to appear and we were stunned that our waitress ignored... More

We were visiting family in Albany & went to Saratoga for the day. They chose the place & made the reservations. It was on a side street so if we were walking around town it would not have been a place we would have chosen. We walked through what seemed like 3 restaurants until we would up where the hostess...
