Wide range of beers. Beers were cold! Fun atmosphere and friendly wait staff. On birthdays the bar serves a free boot of beer to the adult celebrating!

Wolff's has excellent draft beer, German and Belgium. The Albany location also has a fair menu- have tried several items and not disappointed. The Schenectady location also has the excellent beer but a much more limited menu.

Tons of German and Belgium beers to choose from. Even diffent sizes of beer glasses depending on how thirsty you are. Shelled peanuts included and they serve a small... More

First time here and I really enjoyed how the inside looks like you are outside. On the night I came here it was overly busy. Hard to get beers, elbow room and very loud. Seems as though this is a place for 21-25 year olds. Lots of college kids. It would of been nicer if it wasn't just for a... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident. It was a sunny day, so we could here the raucous of good times being had as we walked up to this open, but covered establishment. The Biergarten is tucked between 2 other buildings giving you an outside fresh air feel. The beer choices were amazing!!!! And $13 for a liter of beer!!!!!... More

Very fun atmosphere! Big wooden picnic tables and benches, peanuts in baskets on every table, and European soccer on the TV. Loved it!

If you are older and looking for a conversation with some beer and peanuts, go in the afternoon to early evening. If you want to have some fun before the theater with a moderate dose of noise, tomfoolery, early to mid evening hours. After 8 PM. It gets loud, fun and rowdy. Its a bar, it's what it does.

This place is fun and loud! Plenty of great beers to choose from and at least 4 large screen HDTV's featuring primarily soccer matches and rated the #2 Soccer Bar in the USA.
