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.

What a surprise! The Saratoga Grill provides excellent upscale food at reasonable prices in a unique upstairs dining room. The stairs up are steep but the climb was worth it. I had the fried flounder dinner and the wife had the lump crab cakes, both excellent. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the service excellent. The Saratoga Grill will not... More

Forty years ago Hillsborough was a sleepy little town north of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, The only attraction was a rundown place called the Colonial Inn. People drove over from the big cities for a home cooked meal in a building in which George Washington purportedly once slept. Last week we passed through the town on our way back... More
