Enjoyed the front window view watching the world going by. Enjoyed pretzels with beer cheese dip and turkey club sandwiches, French fries were great.Great portions that we boxed for next day lunch. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon and we relaxed. Waitress was attentive and wonderful. Will be back.

Decent food with the typical bar food options, but tend to be slightly dressed up. Decently priced drinks for the area. Lots of seating.

We have been to Gaffney's numerous times over the years. Food is typical American food but its never disappointed. We like to go in the nice weather and sit outside. Summers are great with their live music on the patio.

Came here during a conference break. It was nice and quiet due to being on a side street. I got the harvest salad and it was delicious! A nice size, although the same of the bowl made it a bit hard to cut the chicken. Our waitress was really sweet and the place had a Victorian vibe.

This is a fun place in the summer with a great outdoor patio and the food is usually solid. With the exception of the veggie burger which they desperately need to improve upon. It's way mushy and has zero body and little flavor. Recently, I stopped in for a cocktail on the pub level and went to the popcorn cart... More

We keep coming back to this restaurant every time we visit Saratoga. The food is good, the staff is friendly and the prices won't drain your wallet.

I can always count on Gaffney's for wonderful lunch specials on the covered patio in the warmer months and good, hearty soups indoors in the winter months.

We had a nice lunch for two on the deck of this central Saratoga Springs restaurant. We enjoyed salads and light plates (burger, chicken caeser salad) in the middle of the Labor Day weekend. With drinks it all came to $39; a fair price for the setting and the food. Server/chef Deborah worked with us and was friendly and caring... More

We were stopping for a quick lunch between two other destinations. We saw the patio and decided it would be a lovely place to sit for an hour. Our lunch was fine--nothing to write home about. It was a pub lunch of sandwiches and salads. But the service was desperately slow, because there was only one server. Our food took... More
