Always good

We go there often and have never been disappointed. From burgers to excellent salmon you can't go wrong to this forever Saratoga staple. In warm weather outdoor patio with music is a great night out.

My husband & I took a trip up to Saratoga last evening for what we had hoped would be a casual night out having a beer, a bit of pub food and to listen to a local band. The place was almost empty when we arrived to get a table and yet it took forever to get the attention of... More

Always a great place to hang. Never an annoying DJ, very often a great band or acoustic act. The upstairs bar has some great craft beers and the delightful smell of fresh popcorn. On warmer days, sit on the garden patio. Super chill vibe with stone walkways and trees. Great music every night in the summer! Fantastic food.. love the... More

Men's night out for 12 of us. I appreciate the problem wth separate checks and the waitress was fine. The shrimp were soggy and limp,two sandwiches wronge and generally overcooked everything. Most of the fries were burned. Try the burgers,stick to basics.

We stopped in this bar and restaurant for Happy hour. They had good drink prices and offered free appetizers. It was too cold to be outside but they had an awesome looking patio that would be fun in nicer weather. We did not stay for dinner.

Love the building and the old bar feel of this place. What bar do you know still serves RC Cola? Great service and the food is good. Come and sample the charm.

We went for a Sunday lunch, and, once we got 'noticed' by the staff, were given a table on the covered porch, which has hanging baskets & lots of flowers to give some privacy & a nice 'ambience'. There is also the inside bar ambience and a nice stone patio. The private parking (only a couple of spaces...) was nice... More

Great outdoor seating restaurant. Live music during dinner. Very entertaining bands. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. We did have a bad strawberry daiquiri that we returned. Tasted like pink water.

We stopped in here late on a Monday because we heard the music and we're looking for something to do. We ordered drinks and listened to the music until about midnight. The staff was pleasant and it was easy to get drinks quickly. It wasn't too busy but the atmosphere was fun and inviting.
