Hillsborough is one of those towns you never hear of unless you live in the area. It is one of those old small historic towns that have preserved the turn of the century feel. We pass through it on our way to Raleigh and try to time our trip so we can stop here for dinner.This was our first visit... More

We recently visited the Saratoga Grill for the first time and it was an enjoyable experience. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. It is tucked away among the older buildings on the second floor in the downtown of Hillsborough. The window tables allow a good view of the activity on the street, and the large windows... More

I have been there for both lunch and dinner. Great ambience. They have fresh salads, wonderful clam chowder, amazing seafood..my favorite is the black pepper encrusted swordfish. Breads are fresh, and delicious. My coworkers have had the larger salads, burgers and other items, and everyone always loves it. My husband and I have made a date night here, and the... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 14 years and the quality of the food and service have always been excellent. It's a small restaurant above a boutique shop in the historic and idyllic town of Hillsborough, NC. Their menu is seafood oriented, but they offer a variety of other foods as well. The restaurant is small and quaint... More

We stopped for lunch here because we used to live near Saratoga NY. Turns out the owners used to own a restaurant up there (and a good one!) You have to go up a narrow staircase to an unusually configured dining area--maybe 15 tables tops. Crowded with locals, most seemed to be regulars, the waitresses knew them. While we waited... More

The single entry door in Hillsborough's main street leads to greater things upstairs in this first floor restaurant with a huge window overlooking the road, fine trees and the old town's elegant court house. Don't be fooled by the casual no-frills layout but do try and get a table by the window - which two of us were lucky to... More

Quaint little restaurant overlooking downtown Hillsborough. I would recommend making reservations for it fills up quickly even for lunch. Everything is fresh, salad dressings are fantastic, seafood delicious, great service, etc. Nice bite for lunch!!! Need to go back soon.

Saratoga grill is an awkward, antiquated feeling space at first. You walk up into the middle of the dining room with no idea where to go unless someone is immediately there to greet you. It feels like you should have come in from the other side of the building. Once you're seated, though, everything takes on a great, homely dining... More

Good food at a good value especially before 6:30 pm.. Owners and staff are the best at what they do. Our favorite restaurant and we go 3-4 times a month. Try them, you will like them. Lunch or dinner. Closed on Mondays. Check web site.

Not so good that I liked it much at all. I should have known when I looked at the beer list not to order any food. In a state that brews some of the best beer, as well as having a great brewer right in town, they served swill. But thats just beer, which I have a thing for. Then... More
