I thought I was having an early dinner at O’Leary’s in Scotia when I clumped up the three stairs to the front door of the restaurant.
Surprise! O’Leary’s had morphed into Mohawk Taproom & Grill while I wasn’t looking.
Spindles is in a small storefront on a street struggling to attract and keep merchants. Judging by the crowd in the restaurant that night, I’d say they’re doing well. Perhaps it will encourage other businesses to move onto the block.
If you’ve driven north up Route 9 from Saratoga Springs, you’ve seen this place. A larger-than-life-sized statue of a rearing black stallion looms outside the one-story white building. In the summer, you can play bocce behind the restaurant.

The Mill on Round Lake restaurant on the east side of Route 9 is casual, with a rustic feel, a wall of members’ beer mugs and a big pool table. The bar and poolroom front the building, with a small dining room in the rear.
