I had lunch there on 12/6/16 with 23 co-workers for our holiday get together. Food is fantastic. Service was very quick and each person ordered different menu items. I will be going there more often in the future. Very small area but not congested at all.

We are staying at Hyco Lake and drove to Hillsbirough for lunch. Our first experience at Saratoga Grill was delicious; we had a brief wait time at 1:00 PM, but lunch was prompt and really fine salmon. The second visit we made reservations and experienced the same fine service with a marvelous peppered swordfish. This is so nice we will... More

We had blackened scallops over greens with a strawberry dressing that was superb. Bill had the black bass with white bean purée that was... More

This little restaurant is on the second floor of an old building, above a pleasant little boutique. There's no elevator, just a flight of wooden stairs leading to a single room with big windows overlooking the main street of this historic town. My friend and i ordered the special of the day, a seafood plate, for lunch. For $10 we... More

The title says bit all. My wife and I move to Hillsborough 10 years ago. When we first moved here, we heard that this was a great place. We went and were told that, without a reservation we'd have to sit in the bar area. We said OK and then they took is there. There wasn't enough room at the... More

Wife and I went here for lunch and was not disappointed. There was a wait as the lunch crowd filled up the room. After 10 minutes we were seated and soon after our order was in. Ordered the seafood platter which was very good along with a glass of wine that was on special that day. My wife did the... More

Ventured in for a bite without checking reviews in advance. Wow, the best price/value you can find just about anywhere! Food delicious, well-priced, and hard-working wait staff. If in Hillsborough, this is the place for lunch!

Thank gojets1
