“Great food, especially the turkey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

Can get crowded from about 6 to 8, so try and get there early, 4 to 5 pm. Turkey is their specialty. Can get a nice diner and pay anywhere from $10 to $30+ depending on what you order.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2011

By all means make reservations for this locals destination spot. The food is wonderful and the staff attentive. The turkey dinner is the signature meal and it doesn't disappoint. It's one of our favorite "comfort food" places to eat in the Saratoga Springs area.

“My favorite area restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2011

Some of the bad reviews I've read here seem like they must be from someone with an axe to grind. I've been to Winslow's more often than probably any other restaurant, and the experience is always a good one. Occasionally it gets so busy that there is a wait, but that's because it's so good! Although their famous turkey is always delicious, I usually choose one of the specials prepared by the CIA-trained chef and owner. Always a treat! Virtually everyone I know goes there. It's quaint and - most importantly -the food is great! If you're looking for mass-produced meals, head to your local chain restaurant. If you're looking for an enjoyable home-cooked meal, go to Winslow's.

“ANTS 0N THE FOOD!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2011

SLOOOOW SERVICE
Apparently they think they are a 5 star restaurant because they want you to make reservations and frowned at us when we walked in and asked to be seated, BUT that was the least of our experience. The Hamburger platter came with 15 ants. Yes, ants, all scrambling around on my sons plate. The staff kinda just brushed the incident off. Took 20 minutes before he had another Hamburger platter AND they had the balls to charge us for his burger! Will NEVER eat there again. You won't want to either, may just have lots of ant in your meal.

“Large portions...we go every summer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2010

Winslow's is on our list of restaurants to go to during our visit to Saratoga every summer. The food is good home cooking and the portions are large. They are known for their famous turkey dinners. They are very good and we call ahead to make sure they still have turkey left. When we arrived, we noticed a sign which states if they are in or out of turkey dinners that night (it's over the door to the kitchen).

Pros: Turkey Dinner
Ground Sirloin Steak dinner - smothered in onions
Mashed potatoes
French Onion soup
Kid friendly
Reservations accepted (great if your visiting during racing season)
Large portions
Homemade sangria
Large selection of homemade desserts

Cons: Can be a long wait without reservations
Service can be slower when they are very busy.
