Saratoga group dinner

JFC | Oct 24, 2007 03:23 PM

Hi Chowhounders from a Boston hound.

I am very excited about my first trip to Saratoga Springs next weekend. I have the dubious honor of organizing a group dinner for 15-20 people on Saturday night.

I have read a number of posts about the Saratoga area, and do hope to have time to explore some of the dining options provided, but for my group dinner:
Seating: must offer non-smoking section (one person is allergic).
Price: Most in this group are cost conscious, and aren't necessarily going to get a bottle of wine with dinner. I'm trying to keep under $15 for entrees.
Food style/atmosphere: For obvious reasons, this is not as important as other factors. We have a few squeamish about seafood/sushi.

Most of the group is staying at the Saratoga Springs Inn and Convention Center, and I'd prefer to be within a 15 minute walk. No one in the group is from the area, and I'd rather not have to get everyone in their cars, but a 10 minute drive is okay too.

I've tried Longfellow's and Olde Bryan Inn but neither takes reservations. Wheatfields already has a group scheduled, so that's out, too. Any thoughts on Gaffney's, Horseshoe Inn or Leon's or Publick House? Any other recs?
