Consistently good!

This place is consistently good. You can always count on the quality, taste & service. It's my favorite place to meet folks for lunch. I've also been to parties there & been quite pleased with their attentiveness & cheerfulness.

Nice place to meet or have a small gathering. if you want a quiet drink head to the back to find the bar most diners don't even know exists. Great prices and a standing "Early Bird Special' menu before 6 that is a good deal.

Ordered take out for the Poet's Walk at Ayr Mount, the waitresses were wonderful. Extremely friendly! Told us what to do at Ayr Mount. And our sandwich was delicious! Looking forward to eating there again next time we're in Hillsborough

I have had lunch at the Saratoga Grill three times when I am traveling to Durham North Carolinia and it is always fantastic! Their food is always consistant and fresh. It truly is a hidden gem that I am quite glad I found. Salad with salmon is my favorite with a cup their savory clam chowder. The treat is the... More

We were returning home today and wanted a nice late lunch. I checked trip advisor to see what was available in Hillsborough, NC. Decided on #2, which was the Saratoga Grill. We read it was over a shop and were uncertain we had the correct place as the stairway was kind of hidden. We arrived around 2 on a weekday... More

Best place to eat for everything from a plain salad to a fancy cut of meat. The Saratoga Grill is small and oh so quaint. Folks do not show up in work out clothes they actually look like they are all professional business folks. I love this restaurant.

We went through trip advisor for locations and heard someone at the hotel say it was a white tablecloth restaurant. It was and wasn't. Yes there were white table cloths but the atmosphere was friendly and delightful. I rechecked on Trip Advisor and we decided that looked good. It was and we were very pleased with service and most of... More

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 always a bit off of my order. Therefore,... 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.
