Fine Southern Goodness.

Mission-driven food since 1938.

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

Ms. Hattie

Since it opened in 1938, “Hattie’s” and “Saratoga Springs” are often mentioned in the same breath. Hattie’s has served fine Southern and Louisiana cuisine in a friendly, down-home atmosphere for close to 80 years and has earned legions of fans. Over its long history, the restaurant has provided consistent commitment to its staff, its customers and the community and the original storefront Chicken Shack™ has grown from a beloved neighborhood restaurant to a national institution.


Hattie’s award-winning fried chicken is well known for its unique recipe that has remained the same since 1938. Hattie’s fried chicken was featured on Bobby Flay’s Food Network show “Throwdown” and proved on national television that its fried chicken is sublime.
