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

Our friends told us that they were taking us to the best restaurant in Hillsborough. Walking down the main street I was wondering where it could be. Surely it wouldn't be in a store-front and up the narrow staircase. What a surprise! Starting with the friendly greeting to the waiter who made . we well served and welcome we looked... More

This restaurant above a shop on the main street in Hillsborough is reminiscent of an English Tearoom, in the nicest way. The food is good, not fancy, and very well priced. Impressively, lots of people seemed well known to the waitresses - who are friendly and hard working to ensure good delivery times, so it must be very consistent, too.... More

This is undoubtedly the best choice for lunch, if you can walk up a flight of stairs. The owners and staff are super friendly, never get rattled, get the food out fast so you can get on with your day. It is a very pretty setting, interesting changing exhibits of local artists, nice linens. They like reservations but handle walk-ins.... More

What a great restaurant in downtown Hillsborough. A wonderfully charming place for Lunch or Dinner. Don't forget to try the sliced sirloin over butter & garlic toast - just wonderful! The staff is aways pleasant and attentive. The tables and chairs are a bit old but that is the charm of the place. Enjoy!
