Just a short walk from the Saratoga Race Course and walking distance from Congress Park, The Brook Tavern is a favorite neighborhood gathering spot nestled at the intersection of Union and Nelson Ave., right in the heart of historic Saratoga Springs.
Editor's Note: As of January 2021, The Brook Tavern is open for takeout only at this time.
Taking the entire first floor of what was once an 1800’s horse carriage factory, the bar and restaurant has a warm and upbeat interior that tastefully combines hints of nostalgia with contemporary style.
This landmark watering hole is the newest creation of the owners of The Wishing Well, one of the region’s most popular restaurants for over two generations. The Brook offers both casual and more formal dining, and can meet the needs of the local who wants to stop in for a plate of oysters and a craft beer, families with children, or larger dinner parties who want to migrate from the historic bar to the clubby or more formal dining room. With interior seating for over 100 and an outside summer porch, there is plenty of room and something to appeal to all. Diners can choose from a menu of American fare that features fresh oysters, innovative salads, locally sourced meats and vegetables and an array of artisan spirits and award-winning wines.
