If you go out a lot, Hattie's is a refreshing change. Atmosphere is different, it ha s a local New Orleans vibe with a menu to match. Everyone was happy with their choices, including fried chicken, chicken and dumplings and jambalaya.
Also great soup, corn bread, and biscuits.

We dined at Hattie's, while visiting Saratoga and found it to be very good. We both had their famous fried chicken. It was excellent. The staff was very attentive. Very busy no matter what day you go.......

The service was great.
Our waitress put in our three-year-old's food first so we could feed her first and still eat our meal hot.
The person who said they should have gone to Popeyes as either on drugs or hasn't gone to Popeyes lately. This is the best fried chicken I've ever had.

We were told by everyone that Hattie’s was a must visit, especially if one craved really good fried chicken! I love fried chicken, always order it wherever we travel, so Hattie's was a must!

Got there early for dinner and was seated immediately. Service was good but a bit relaxed and casual (by design I think!). Went right for the main event, salad, fried chicken with smashed potatoes and collard greens; wife had salad and the fish-of-the-day, trout.

Everything was good, more or less as expected following all the recommendations! But the chicken was a let-down, definitely not living up to the hype! The seasoning was good, and while the skin had a nice crisp the meat was somewhat dry and surprisingly flavorless. There are several ways to make the best fried chicken (wet or dry brining, buttermilk, pressure-cooking, etc) but this chicken did not suggest any had been used?!

It was still very good (better then any chain-restaurant) but not up to all the praise! Still is worth a visit though.

You want the best fried chicken? Best I’ve had (IMHO) was at Georgia Brown’s in Washington!

I really liked the setting and location. It's a nice place to go. I got the Fried Chicken, greens, and hoppin john. The chicken was very good, the greens unique (almost a pickled flavor, and the hoppin john was just ok (rice grainy, black eyed peas a little undercooked). The complementary biscuits and corn bread was very nice.

Very generous portions (I had enough for leftovers).

I will come back.
