Great Food in Hillsborough

Have been here several times and enjoyed it. Off the main street in Hillsborough on the second floor of historic downtown building. I normally have the swordfish which never disappoints or the salmon. They do seafood very well but have been let down when ordering steak. The cook on the steak is... read more

I live in Durham and was looking for somewhere to eat outside of town and this place popped up on Tripadvisor. It was excellent. The food was top notch and the atmosphere was unique, it was almost like being in someone's house for lunch. Prices were very reasonable for seafood platter and pan-seared flounder. Clam chowder was also excellent.

This restaurant has some of the best seafood I have ever eaten. The location is great too located on the second floor of a historic building in downtown Hillsborough. Had the seafood platter a great value for lunch for $10. Had shrimp stuffed crab, Salmon and great big scallops. It was absolutely delicious. Comes with a salad which had excellent... More

Saratoga Grill is a family restaurant located on the second floor of a historic building in downtown Hillsborough. The narrow staircase leads visitors to a cozy dining room that includes a few tables overlooking the downtown scene through large windows. The restaurant has a decent menu that includes limited early bird selections that are an incredible value. For ten dollar... More

Since it opened years ago the Saratoga has offered consistently great food in a neat atmosphere on second floor overlooking the old courthouse. The owners are very friendly and add specials to menu daily. It is hard for many of us to not get the honey almond salmon though. The scones are delicious also. Other customer favorites are the sliced... More

I like to go for the Early Bird Special which serves delicious food, smaller but adequate portions for most women at least. Does have a flight of steps which makes it basically inaccessible for many people with mobility issues. Can't get a WC up there for sure! Small place, might want to make reservations.

I was surprised to see a negative review because our experience was so amazing. The owners were completely accommodating of our family including our small children and they were incredibly lovely and friendly. One of the owners even gave my coin obsessed son a Sacajawea dollar for being good. The scones were not hard. They were awesome. The seafood was... More

Most of the food is fairly good; but they put a rock hard scone on your plate, tasteless. Service is mixed at best, some nice, owners are often rude and do not take kindly to constructive suggestions.
