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.

Gaffney's could accommodate our large party of 16 so we ate on their patio. Everything about this restaurant was BAD. It was not crowded yet the food took over an hour and tasted terrible. Not one person in our party was happy with their meal & one person actually got sick from the food. The crowd there was more of... More

Their patio is not located 6 feet from Broadway and because it is in it's own quiet haven! The food is a great value, creative and tasty. Always a good soup and the salads are generously laden with yummy ingredients. The staff is always very helpful and honest in their suggestions, not just trying to push a special! A real... More
