I'm not going to tell you that Gaffney's Restaurant has the best food in Saratoga, or that it even cracks the top three, but I had dinner there recently with some friends and the good food, friendly service, nice ambience, and stellar entertainment combined for one of the most enjoyable dining experience's I have had in a while.
What made the dinner so great was that we sat on the back patio on a warm evening and we were able to (1) enjoy the nice weather, (2) enjoy a very good band, and (3) people watch the customers in the back yard. It was really fun and I recommend you go to dinner there the next time the weather cooperates.
The food was very good. Their menu is not gourmet or cutting edge, but they have a little bit for everybody (vegetarians may have to stick to salads or special orders) including at least two chicken dishes, two beef, four seafood choices (haddock, tuna, shrimp, and salmon), pork chops, and some pasta choices. Their menu is supplemented with nightly specials. What I really enjoy there is Gaffneys' New Orleans inspired dishes, including etouffee, jambalaya, and seafood gumbo with shrimp, crab, oysters & mussels. I had the jambalaya when we were there last time and it really blew me away it was so good. If you make it there I hope your experience is as nice as ours was.
