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...

Please not go to this joint. Went here with family members for Sunday dinner. We were a large party of nine. Orders were taken and we waited and waited for the food for ever and ever. Table next to us wait so long they just got up and left. I order prime ribs which was the special of the evening.... More

My bf and I had never had a meal at Gaffney's before, so when looking for a place to have a quick lunch we walked by, we decided to try it. We wanted to seat in the front patio but despite the fact that there was plenty of tables available, the hostess told us that there was a 45 minutes... More

Absolutely horrendous service. We walk in, and sit down (we didn't see any sign of a hostess, so we figured it was seat-yourself) and after 20 minutes and watching every other table receive menus and a waitress, we went up to the bar to ask for a waitress. We thought they may have just missed us, completely understandable. And then,... More

This place is gigantic and open till 4 am. The seating is endless, the staff is friendly and they open early too! I enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio.
