Saratoga Grill in Hillsborough, NC is located upstairs above an Antique Shop. If you can climb the stairs, you'll find a delicious selection of menu items. I recommend the Open Face Steak Sandwich. YUM! The service is TOP NOTCH. Jane H.

I've eaten here for years.....they used to serve the best chicken n dumplings around. Lately it has been a hit or miss experience with the food. It's still a great setting though......nothing fancy, up a rickety flight of stairs, and really good service. One of my favorites

Two out of five in our group were satisfied with their meals, the sirloin open faced was pretty much over cooked and tossed on buttered white bread. While the atmosphere was decent, the staff at Saratoga Grill were incredibly rude. Make sure to have a reservation or the owner/manager will become frustrated. Another tip, if you have specific instructions regarding... More

This restaurant fills up quickly, but they will do their best to find a spot for you - even if it's at the bar in the back. If you can get a table near the window, it's fun to look out over downtown. This is the perfect lunch spot. The salads are very generous, with fresh mixed lettuce and all... More

This place is great. Staff is unbelievably friendly and sincere. Food is always tasty and simple. The clam chowder is simply the best. More than enough food and very clean place.

This was my first time dining at this restaurant. I heard great things about it. Dined with family. Very reasonable prices. I highly recommend getting the early bird specials. All of us finished our plates completely, which is not often. Everything was delicious!
