Each year we are in the area for NY State Championships and this is our go to restaurant. The food was just as good as we remembered and service was just exceptional. And we absolutely missed that chocolate chip cookie dessert!

See you next year!

Third weekend in a row and the food was terrific! The service staff is exceptionally welcoming, timely but not intrusive. The trout dish was heaven.

Had an early Mother’s Day with my son. Food, drinks and service are always good here. My son did get the small plate paella and the rice was crunchy. We were told this is how the rice should be. I will say we have had paella before in other restaurants and the rice has never been crunchy.

We have dined at Brook Tavern in the past with great experiences each time. In this instance, however, the meal quality was not up to past experiences. The Ahi Tuna Sliders for an app were very good. However, my Shell stuffed with ricotta cheese came to the table cold. I normally do not like to return food, but this needed warning to make it edible. When it did finally get back to the table, it was warm but so tough and chewy that I didn’t feel like eating it. My husbands grilled pork chop was very fatty and tasteless. All I all, this experience was not very good. I guess one bad evening can happen anywhere, so we’ll give them another try in the future.

We stopped on our way home from Montreal. It has a cozy fire burning and we got seated and served right away. The French onion soup was yummy. Our salads were really good as well...with a great muffin on the side. I saved mine to eat with a coffee to go so we could hit the road. We will definitely stop here again!

My boyfriend and I tried this for the first time Easter weekend. The food was great, the service was amazing (shout out to Barbara), and the live music was good! We were a little under dressed, but no one seemed to care which made us feel comfortable! We will be back for sure!

Great meal. Too bad they sat us near a huge 60th birthday party. So loud ! Amazing they sat us there when the other half of the restaurant had plenty of tables, and we had a reservation. I could understand if we were walk-ins. Caused us to leave before dessert Worth another try.

We have been to the Brook Tavern at least 10 times and it has become one of our favorite restaurants. The menu is very flexible, offering affordable but delicious pub items (great Blackened Haddock tacos) or excellent fine dining options. We are always greeted warmly and we do not have to fight our way into downtown Saratoga to park. Great value and we will be back.

Ordered the Oysters Rockefeller, lots of breadcrumbs and dry, had their take on a wedge salad it was just OK. They used romaine lettuce instead of iceberg which was not a problem but skimpy on the dressing could've used a bit more. Ordered the Salmon over butternut squash risotto. The risotto was completelt tasteless and devoid of salt. It had pieces if squash in it but didnt taste like it had been cooked in it..left much to be desired. The salmon itself was ok

We went to dinner on Sunday night. We were seated quickly. We also received drinks and refills quickly. They brought fresh bread. My stuffed lobster dish was great. My daughter ordered the macaroni and cheese off the kids menu. It was not good. She likes all different kinds of macaroni and cheese, but it tasted funny. The bill was easy to get. It was ok, I would go back, but the menu is geared towards adults, not children, so I would go alone because my daughter wouldn't eat there again.

Brook Tavern service and food were both outstanding! Be prepared, it is small and somewhat loud, but you will not be disappointed ! 3 of us in a booth enjoyed center-cut sirloin, a cheeseburger and blackened haddock tacos - each terrific. Molly was an excellent, attentive and personable server.
