Never can measure up

I've given Gaffneys many tries, only because they have great bartenders. But, if you want to be truly disappointed, stop by for lunch or dinner. The meals are too expensive for what you get. If they get your order correct, you're one of the lucky ones. And worst of all the veggies have always been on thier last leg when I have been there. I would recommend Boston Market over this place.

Great Food Great Music Great Prices!

Gaffneys is THE Saratoga place to be year round. They are committed to great food and service at great prices. The owner is very often on premesis and seems quite committed to maintaining the top notch food and service.

Gaffney's is also quite committed to offering high quality, consistent entertainment and showcases some of the area's best acoustic and electric musical acts ranging from rock, folk and blues.
Some of the acts currently being featured are Rick Bolton and The Dwyer Sisters, Jeff Walton, Mother Judge, Blues House Rockers, and Mikki Bakken just to name a few.

This place is often crowded in the summer months, but there's always a lot of fun people in the mix.
The service is very fast in most situations, in spite of the crowds, but occasionally they get bogged down like anyone would be in that situation.

great experience

Gaffney's was a wonderful experience. I've been there only twice and have recieved the best service I have ever encountered. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the waitresses, and the upmost great service. I had the pleasure of enjoying the patio, and the waitress that we had, made sure that we were not without refreshment any part of the night. The environment invites you in from the street. They invite a wide variety of entertainment to draw the crowds. I also enjoyed the wide variety of patrons that expereinced what I was able to. Age is no factor here, everyone is treated in the same manner, and draws the kind of crowd that is outgoing, fun and friendly. I have already considered having my friends join me for an upcoming birthday for two freinds. I plan to attend Gaffney's more frequently and hope to experience the same every time.

The After-Saratoga Place To Be

This place is just plain fun. The outdoor bar is one of the more popular spots to relax and have fun at the same time when you're in Saratoga Springs. The food is good, the drinks are great and the outdoor atmosphere is catchy. The music is pretty darn good too. Sometimes, you even get to try something a little out of the ordinary of the menu, such as aliigator, anyone? Try it, I guarantee you'll like it.
