- Fantastic Meal & ServiceToujourmoiDined on 10/8/2014This is my second time at Bookmakers Rest and both times I've enjoyed everything. It's a nice quiet place where you can relax and enjoy spending time and talking with the people you are with and actually hear each other. The food was delicious and service was perfect.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/18/2014Fabulous Breakfast buffet. A very nice variety of foods and all well prepared and displayed.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent lunch!LynnDined on 5/11/2014Sandwiches so large that we took half home for supper.Special Features:
- Made My Mother's Day SpecialLynnieDined on 5/11/2014Attended the Mother's Day Brunch with my husband, two daughters, and two of my grandsons. The food selection was extremely appealing to everyone in our group, from the youngest to the oldest (which was me!). Although we know there were several timeframes set up for the reservations, we did not feel rushed. The young lady who served our beverages was cheerful and helped make the occasion a wonderful experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and service!JEM37Dined on 2/14/2014My husband and I went for Valentine's Day. We were both pleasantly surprised since we made the reservations at the last minute! Food and service were both great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- waste of timediningduoDined on 5/17/2013We were actually excited to try Bookmakers after reading all the descriptions but when we got there it was a total let down. With only 10 menu items, the atmosphere of an empty Dennys, a patio that overlooks a parking lot, 10 minutes to wait for water, and people who came in after us being waited on first, we left. The menu options were abysmal and overpriced. You truly knew you were in an old style motel restaurant. Very disappointing as we have enjoyed other Holiday Inn restaurants immensely.
- The crepe & omelet stationOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 1/13/2013The crepe & omelet station was outstanding - well worth the money spent for brunch!! The rest of the food was a little dried out from being heated for too long - the waffle sticks (not really belgian waffle as advertised) were not edible. On a side note - the restaurant never checked for reservations so we had a very brief wait while they set the table for 9.Special Features:
- The ambiance was great! WeOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/23/2012The ambiance was great! We went on a Monday evening and there were very few people dining there at that time, so it was extremely quiet in the restaurant. The food was ok, but not as good as I expected. I had chicken cordon bleu and I have had better at other restaurants. I was a bit bummed about that..... The chocolate peanut butter dessert was pretty appetizing and perfect for sharing with a date.Special Features:
- service was awful,as i understandOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/19/2012service was awful,as i understand it our waiter was also taking care of room service.not so good coffee was 2.95 per cup,and refills were also 2.95 per cup.because we had a coupon a 18% tip was figured in to the bill,the service wasn't worth a 5% tip.my wife and i eat out often,when we have good service we will leave a 20-25% tip.i have never ate out where they charge for a 2nd cup of coffee.i asked about this and was told it was policy.bad policy as far as i'm concerned.its too bad that because of over worked staff and an extra 2.95 for a 2nd cup of coffee we will not be returning.all and all it was a very disapointing evening for my wife and i.
- Unhappy on New Year's EveOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 12/31/2011Would not accept a gift certificate, even though there was absolutely no mention (in any form) prior to dining (in other words, nothing on the certificate itself)that stated the certificate was not valid. Was told when settling the bill that this particular night was 'considered a holiday' (new years eve? not a true holiday as far as I can remember) & they couldn't/wouldn't honor it. When I questioned all of this, was told that "this came from the management" desk (no manager ever came over personally to tell me this, mind you.) So, it set the evening off on a rather rough start & I now need to use the certificate at a later time (which will cost me more time/$ to plan) but I don't want to lose/waste yet more $, leaves me w/ a bad feeling..
- Went on a Saturday, late afternoon,OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 12/3/2011Went on a Saturday, late afternoon, in December. There was only one other couple besides us. Lots of TVs. The closest TV had the Weather Channel on it. Not very exciting, but I guess we weren't really there to watch TV. We went specifically for their Restaurant Week lunch special, and at first, the staff was not aware that they were offering the lunch special, which was a bit off-putting. They were friendly nonetheless, yet not very attentive in some ways. Food ended up to be tasty despite the fact that they didn't seem to be familiar with the lunch special. It's probably a lot more fun and lively during Saratoga's busy summer season.Special Features:
