The West Side

Humble × local × Neighborhood Feel


Located just off Broadway, The West Side is a loved local hang out for native sports fans of all types.



Owner Dave Harmon had a vision of breaking the traditional stereotypes of your local "sports pub" when they opened their first restaurant in 2002, The Stadium Cafe. Being one of the very first restaurants, let alone "sports bars," to open it's doors as a completely no smoking establishment, it quickly became one of Saratoga's most welcoming family friendly sports themed restaurants. Because of it's location in the heart of downtown Saratoga Spring's, it also drew crowds of all ages.  

In the Fall of 2005 Dave opened a second location, The West Side Sports Bar & Grill formally known as The West Side Stadium Cafe. It become a staple for local sports fanatics, beer lovers and the quintessential family hangout spot. With 20+ TV's to watch whatever team you call your own, you'll be sure to catch every big play, every overtime victory, or that 50 yard throw for a game-winning touchdown deep in the fourth quarter.

Dave, alongside General Manager Leejay Pollacchi put forth a completely new approach to their west side location in 2016 adapting the phrase “The West Side Like You've Never Seen It Before.” The approach was designed to focus on every nook and cranny of the restaurant to maximize food quality, atmosphere, customer experience, and diversity, presenting you with what we consider the Best Sports/Dining Experience in the Area!

The menu features appetizers for days, including favorites such as locally renowned Deep Fried Calamari, our fresh cut "Saratoga Chips" (As seen on the History Channel), and our Jumbo Wings which have been voted Best Wings by Saratogian Readers. It also offers huge selection of Fresh Salads, Signature Sandwiches & Burgers and New Yorker inspired Entrees.

The West Side's Garden Patio is a great place to kick back on spring & summer days with one of our signature cocktails or while enjoying a nice meal. The fully covered patio, lined with flowers and water fountain, seats another 12 tables and features 3 more HD TV's with full surround sound.
