“Perfect for what it is and recently improved”

The Trackside Grill
Ranked #131 of 263 Restaurants in Saratoga Springs
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 August 2017

Have been going here on and off for quite some time. The Grill was recently purchased by new, local owners and they have made some nice upgrades and changes. It literally is outside the Saratoga Racetrack clubhouse gate. Super place to pick up "to go" fresh made breakfast sandwiches and coffee if you attending the morning workouts at the track, or wanting simple grilled fare and cold beer on your way in to the races in the afternoon.
They have added entertainment in a cool patio after the races, so it makes it a convenient and less expensive alternative if you are hungry and want cold drinks. Believe it stays open until midnight on the weekends.
Many people eat here after going to the Horseshoe Inn down the street because the food and atmosphere has tailed off there.
Smart , "insider" choice for food, cold beer and entertainment very close to the track.

Great live music, reasonable drinks, fantastic ambiance, no cover charge. We love the atmosphere, and it has become a mandatory stop after the track. We love it!

One of my favorite traditions when visiting the Saratoga Racetrack, which I do 4-5 days a year, is to stop for a Breakfast sandwich at the Trackside Grill. The location is ideal - immediately outside the clubhouse gate. This is the gate you want for a much easier getaway down Nelson Ave back onto I-87 at the end of the day. The little stretch of Wright street is the place to get your water fro the preteens selling from their wagons and a tip sheet from one of the salty veterans... but most of all, it is the place to grab one of the finest breakfast sandwiches around and a damn good burger as well. The service is something out of cape cod or an old-fashioned Drive-In diner. Mostly young girls selling ice-cream, sandwiches, and great T-Shirts and Sweatshirts with a big smile on their face. I am sure the place does really well, and they deserve it as they keep their prices reasonable and counters clean. Now if t hey would only add an Italian sausage or a fish Taco to the menu...

Great place for a quick burger etc. before entering the track.
Fun people and clean place to eat on the run. Normally I am
pressed for time before the first race and the lines inside the track are long.

Little spends but very good. Generous servings. An added bonus was sitting outside enjoying lunch. Their fresh cooked chips were great and will certainly have more the next time we go.
