This place is a 3.5, but I can't rate it that. Slightly above average. Food was solid, not 4 star but not 3. Had some paninis and wraps. Soup was good. Draft beer selection is slightly above average.

Food and service were average. It sounds like they are going through a management change so many things were not available to be ordered. Patio area was small but good for our party of 6. Prices were on par with portions of ordered food.

It was just okay. Ordered the chicken quesadilla and found it to be nothing better than I could have made at home, except I had to pay way more for it than it should have cost. It was dry. Sour cream and salsa was served...More

We were here on a Saturday night around 6pm. The set up is bar in the front, restaurant in the back. There are tables far enough from the bar that you don't feel like you need to yell to have a conversation and you don't...More

The Across the Street Pub was opened in 1973 and has continuously been in business for nearly 45 years. The atmosphere is casual and the bar and dining room can accommodate over 120 people on any given night. We proudly continue to serve the Capital District with quality "pub grub" and strive to maintain a high level of customer service as has been the Pub's tradition. We offer an extensive menu that has many options for all who patronize our establishment. Our wings, burgers, flatbread pizzas, and custom salads are favorites and give people variety to choose. Our beer selection also balances domestic, import, and craft beers. There is something for everyone.
