Spending a rainy weekend in Saratoga our group wanted to try something different. Glad we did the food was excellent , a large selection of tavern food including full dinners. A very good selection of wine and beers on tap. Service was prompt and excellent. Would suggest you try it out.....

The French onion soup ordered was extremely salty, which was unfortunate since the presentation was nice. The panko salmon burger was rather bland, and the petite filet with risotto was the smallest filet I've ever seen. The petit filet was the size of a silver dollar if that. Might I suggest that that entree be listed under small plates? It's... More

My friends, my husband and I were fortunate to dine at this lovely establishment last night. First, the place is beautiful. A very upscale tavern style home, elegantly appointed. The service was impeccable. Quite frankly, this was the best meal I have had in a LONG time. I had the special of brazen halibut, with corn risotto! I rarely order... More

My husband and I popped in here for an early dinner. We didn't have reservations but got seated right away. The food and the service here were really excellent. I highly recommend you try the brussels sprouts with bacon and the crispy chicken wings. They were top notch. This is a great place to pop in for a cocktail.

Excellent atmosphere. Very cozy bar area with a fireplace and seats at the bar or on comfortable chairs near the fireplace. Dining room was very clean, food was excellent and service outstanding. Proximity to Saratoga Racetrack very convenient.

This restaurant is directly across from the Saratoga Racetrack and just as busy on a Saturday in December as in the Summer. From the specials of the night to the main menu staples, everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. Vegetables in the winter salad were roasted to perfection and the ahi tuna was rare and tasty. Our waiter Lawrence was... More

My husband ordered the oysters, now, I usually never eat them, however, I did try one and wow, sweet as ever. I had the trout special and it was wonderful. He had a burger which he said was a definite "10". The fact that this Tavern is located right next door to The Brunswick Bed and Breakfast made it just... More

Just finished eating here and had an enjoyable meal. The hostess and waiter were very personable and offered exceptional service. We ordered the fried pickles, which were very tasty and cooked to perfection. We also had a burger and fish and chips, which were also pretty good.
