The restaurant is located in downtown Hillsborough, very close to the courthouse. We happened to walk into the restaurant right after a group of jurors had been let for lunch and walked in just ahead of us. The restaurant was on the second floor and nicely decorated. The staff, although very busy, was very friendly and worked really hard to... More

This is our go to place in Hillsborough. Food and service are always the best. They have an early bird menu...Great steaks and seafood. I highly recommend this place for either a business meal or a date night.

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 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 another... 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
