Hattie’s Restaurants

Here’s the Story

Since 1938, Hattie’s has been a beloved institution, delighting both locals and visitors alike with its delectable Southern cuisine. The original Downtown Saratoga Springs location shines, garnering prestigious awards such as the Diners’ Choice Award on OpenTable for Best Neighborhood Gem. The much celebrated opening of Hattie’s Albany – at the site of the former Lombardo’s – is creating a new culinary destination and amazing job opportunities for the surrounding community.

Giving Back

All profits from Hattie’s Restaurants operations are donated to Business for Good, supporting initiatives aimed at ending hunger and food instability. 
With the proceeds from Hattie’s 2024 Mardi Gras, Hattie’s demonstrated their unwavering commitment to philanthropy by donating all proceeds to the SEAT Center Culinary Lab. Through these endeavors, Hattie’s continues to enrich the lives of others, embodying the values of community and giving.

Moving Forward

With the recent opening of Hattie’s Albany, we are thrilled to embark on this next chapter of our journey. Looking ahead, Hattie’s is poised to continue enriching both palates and communities, embodying the values of compassion, community, and culinary mastery

My goal isn’t to be famous—or to make a profit. My goal is to help whoever I can.
