My wife and I and another couple went to the River Walk in Hillsborough, NC. After walking we went to the visitors center. The girl told us that Saratoga Grill was a nice place to have lunch. I had the special Hanger Steak, it was fabulous the flavor was great. My wife and the other couple had sandwiches or salad.... More

Awesome food, nice ambiance. Friends visited from out of town, wanted a "nice" restaurant for dinner. Everyone was pleased with this restaurant. A little pricier then pub fare, but worth it for a nice adult dinner with conversation. Had to climb a flight of stairs, although it is on the main drag of Historic Downtown Hillsborough, NC.

You probably need a reservation since it is a small but great restaurant. It is in Historic Hillsborough on a second floor with steps to climb.

Tried with my wife and daughter. Did not have reservations. Hostess suggested patio. Patio was really an alley. We saw it and decided to eat there anyway. Service was good and waiter was pleasant. Wife had salmon, daughter had trigger fish, I had sirloin and stuffed shrimp. Everyone enjoyed there dinners, portions were fine, taste was good but not exceptional.... More

We traveled from Raleigh to this historic town for a day trip and discovered this absolutely quaint, small restaurant with the absolute best food and service on par with a fine southern dining restaurant. Besides the fact that I had a wonderful lunch, a seafood plate with grilled salmon, scallops, and stuffed shrimp with salad for only $9.99. My wife... More

We stopped by here after getting bumped from our other reservation on a busy (4th) Friday night and the staff were awesome about accommodating us. They had really good drinks, great seafood and salads, veggies a tad overcooked, but all in all a big thumbs up and will definitely return. The prices were cheaper than anywhere we had been in...

What a find! Located on the second floor above a shop , this restaurant is like a hidden gem. Best scallops ever! Scones were delightful. Can't wait to go back.
