Saratoga Springs on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

Hello. I may be staying in a hotel in Saratoga Springs for Christmas Eve night through to 12/26, and my husband will be taking the Amtrak to meet me there.

I am getting concerned that no restaurants will be open the night of Christmas Eve or the night of Christmas. I’ve checked with a few, and they are all closed for both nights. We are from New York City, where there is always something open on any holiday, and I was surprised to discover this. Especially about Christmas Eve.

I am also worried that taxi services won’t be running, to pick someone up at the train station, etc.

Do any locals know if this is not the case?

Maybe this isn't the best idea to stay in Saratoga Springs during the holiday...

Thank you in advance!

I saved an article from when we were in the general area in the past. The article is from an Albany newspaper but lists other areas as well. Extrapolate:


Also check out opentable.com I took a look and they list places available Christmas Day. When you put in a time the site searches a couple of hours either way as well. So you can ask for 7 or 5 or 2 and things start to open up. This is for restaurants that take reservations and you can reserve online.

Great suggestions above from explorer. Saratoga likely will not have many options open on Christmas, but the restaurants that are open should be lively and inviting. Where will you be staying? The hotel may be helpful in this search, too.

I would contact restaurants directly to verify if they will be open and the hours:






Also, call or e-mail Saratoga Taxi to verify:


Please let us know how it goes. Have a wonderful holiday!
