Restaurant Guide for Ballston Spa & Malta

Though Saratoga Springs NY may boast the most restaurants per capita in New York state, don’t limit yourself to the Spa City’s offerings. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops are just a few minutes drive down Routes 9 or 50.

Fifteen minutes south of Saratoga, Ballston Spa & Malta boast some of the Capital Region’s best restaurants. Many locals and track veterans favor dining in these small villages over neighboring Saratoga, especially during track season. With fewer tourists but plenty of discerning locals, the wait times for tables in Ballston Spa and Malta are shorter... and some even argue the food is better (though we’ll leave that last assessment up to your tastebuds)!
