My daughter and I had lunch here. We sat on the patio, which was nice. The waitress told us we had to wait to be seated even though there were tables available and she was the only waitress working. She made us stand there while she took an order and THEN told us to sit where we liked. The food... More

There is a sour beer smell in the main inside bar that reminds me of late night college. That room is also drab and a bit down trodden. The side room is basically a pretty solarium and newly decorated. The garden can be nice or it can get too crowded. But they tend to have good music venues. Wings are... More

I typically eat at Gaffney's about once a week. Great service and atmosphere, and very reasonable pricing for the quality of food you're getting. I am not one to stray from my normal of the southwestern chicken panini, but today an item on the brunch specials menu caught my eye and I had to order it. I am sure happy... More

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.
