very good lunch

My wife and I had a very good lunch here on a Friday. We arrived around noon and had a 10-15 minute wait. It stayed busy until at least 1pm. My wife had fried fish and found it greasy. I had salmon on a salad which was very good. The restaurant is upstairs and is well decorated, not just... read more

My husband and I decided to eat here on date night after reading the reviews. The place is small and on the second floor of retail space. I do not suggest taking the elderly up those stairs! The rolls and scones are served when you arrive and are fairly good. I have no idea why scones are served because it... More

My husband and I have eaten in downtown Hillsborough at the Saratoga Grill several times. It's best to call ahead and make a reservation to insure you get the time you want or chance waiting a bit for a table. The food is delicious and reasonably priced for a plated meal. The service is excellent. There is a steep set... More

This gem of a restaurant is located in downtown Hillsborough, NC in the upstairs of a retail space. It is small, charming, and delicious. The two of us went for lunch on Friday. We had to wait a short time because they were packed. Apparently, many others have discovered how good they are. We had the salad with shrimp and... More

This quaint restaurant in the heart of downtown Hillsborough is truly a hidden treasure. Located upstairs (no elevator so be warned if you have mobility problems), and has large windows along the front which look out onto the historic Hillsborough courthouse. The food is amazing and always fresh, and the scratch made scones are incredible (and explodable, be warned, ha).... More

Hillsborough is a small town located in between Burlington and Durham off of I-40. They are working on getting a rating of one of the most charming, small town in America. That being said, Hillsborough is very small, and cute, but perhaps (in this viewers opinion) a tad overrated. I have come to the Saratoga more than once because I... More

Best cuisine in Hillsborough. Saratoga is small, and low key, but the menu is excellent. You can carry on a civil conversation with your dinner companions, enjoy a relaxed pace, and leave feeling that you had a delightful evening, at a very reasonable price. It has what is, without question, the best 'small' bar in Hillsborough. I like to go... More

We truly enjoy Saratoga Grill. You can count on consistently fresh, good food, expertly prepared with service you would expect at a high dollar restaurants but at affordable prices.

You walk up a flight of stairs to find a cozy dining room with white tablecloths and a fantastic view of the historic Courthouse. Don't let the white tablecloth ambience worry you about prices. This is one of the best values around. This is a spot I always bring guests to... the waitstaff are friendly and super attentive. I've been... More

The crab dip is out of this world! This upstairs restaurant was a pleasant surprise. It had a couple of larger parties seated, but was still able to manage the typical deuce/4-top parties - without being or feeling squished. 1/2 priced wines on the day we went. They had a few "early bird" ('til 6:30pm) specials that were interesting -... More
