You're not going to want to miss our inviting dining room, cozy fireplace and a spectacular view of Saratoga Lake and the scenic Vermont mountains. Come unwind with a glass of wine or a cold beer, enjoy some great food and let the view work its wonders. 

We're serving up an irresistible assortment of American fare that truly reflects the diverse combination of cultural influences that make our country so awesome. You can go "all-American" with a classic burger, the perfect prime rib, or enjoy pasta dishes (inspired by our chef's family roots in Italy), Cajun flavors, spicy Mexican appetizers, house-made German bratwurst (knockwurst, sauerbraten and sauerkraut during Oktoberfest!), Irish corned beef and cabbage in March (don't forget the Guinness!), and French influences in our sauces and specials. And of course, we have house-made soups daily, a wide variety of side and entree salads, and vegan and gluten-free options. In other words, there's something for everyone at Carson's!

Carson's Woodside Tavern is located in the Capital Region of New York State. We're in Malta, NY - right near Ballston Spa, NY - and only a 13 minute drive from Saratoga Springs, NY. 

There are lots of great restaurants in Saratoga Springs and the surrounding areas, but none have the spectacular panoramic view you'll find at Carson's. 

It doesn't get any better than this -- visit our website for the full menu!
