We tried to get into the Old Bryan Inn but they didn’t have a table for 12 at the time we wanted to eat. So reservations were made at Longfellows which is under the same ownership. We were seated promptly... More

We have been to Longfellows before, but usually not in Race Track Season as we always expected it would be a long wait and just too busy to enjoy.

We made a reservation and were seated on time. The meal was good. The waiter very friendly but a little busy, maybe understaffed when we were there.

My husband's hamburger was totally overcooked and dry, my fish was bland and boring. Nothing was terrible but nothing was great... it was all just OK. It used to be a lot better. Hopefully they can get back to basics -good food and good service!

We stayed in Saratogga Springs for three days and ate every meal at Longfellows. Their food is exceptional and the restaurant itself is cozy and intimate. We Loved the atmosphere but went fo the food.

We have dined numerous times at Longfellows. Our party of four enjoyed great Calamari app., Eggplant Roulade. bourbon Salmon..(to perfection). Longfellows is a sister to the Olde Bryan Inn...same great attentive management. Service a real plus. We had Kate Priest as our waitperson. She is absolutely 1st rate. You won't be disappointed.

Thank m s
