Busy and looks to be expanding. My opinion....small portions, overpriced and average. My pasta was undercooked, dish was served lukewarm. Salmon portion was tiny. They must be doing something right but I don’t see it. Many other better options in Saratoga.More

I do not know. We did not need reservations when we went as it was lunch in mid week and not too very busy.

Carson's Woodside Tavern is serving up an irresistible assortment of American fare that truly reflects the diverse combination of cultural influences that make our country so awesome. You can go "all-American" with a classic burger or the perfect prime rib, or enjoy pasta dishes (inspired by our chef's family roots in Italy), Cajun flavors, spicy Mexican appetizers, house-made German bratwurst (knockwurst, sauerbraten and sauerkraut during Oktoberfest!), Irish corned beef and cabbage in March (don't forget the Guinness!), and French influences in our sauces and specials. And of course, we have house-made soups daily, a wide variety of side and entree salads, and vegan and gluten-free options. In other words, there's something for everyone at Carson's!
