I ate in this place many times when it was a jumping place located across the street from its current location. That was all good. In its new location (formerly 'Jillians') I have only eaten there a few times. Both times I was the only person in the place except for the bartender, and a dishwasher. The burger was good.... More

Good pub food, great beer selection. We were looking for some place to play pool and have some drinks and appetizers. Service was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Free pool table and ping pong. Had a great time with friends playing darts and singing along with the jute box. Definitely recommend

We stopped in for dinner. Of 7 televisions, 6 tuned to the same channel. Service was so, so slow. Mushroom swiss burger was too spicy. Pizza was soft -- was this a microwave pizza? Only reason to come here is for alcohol. A sorry excuse for a pub overall. Too bad the locals are subjected to this place.

The restaurant was nearly empty, especially for a Saturday night. The menu was comprehensive enough. I ordered a salad and for a starter we had the mozzarella sticks. I really enjoyed the meal - the serving size was great.

Grabbed lunch after our visit to the state museum. Our server, who was also the bartender, greeted us as soon as we came through the door. She was friendly and well informed regarding menu choices. Our orders were basic, jalapeño poppers, a Cuban and French dip sandwiches. The poppers were bacon wrapped and decent. Our sandwiches were good, roast beef... More

The staff was friendly and attentive. However be advised that this place has a limited menu when there are events at the Times Union Center. I had the Bacon Cheese Burger which was made to my perfection. I was very satisfied with my food.

Had a day trip to Albany and wanted a quite spot with drinks, good food and a view! Got all those things plus great service! It's a small place in an old building but it's charming as hell!

We were a bit doubtful about having to wait to gain entry to this busy pub on our one night stop in Albany NY. However, we were glad we did as it was crackling with energy and noise, creating a fabulous atmosphere. The food and the craft ales were awesome and the busy waitress was quick on her feet and...
