I have actually been here several times in recent years, primarily for after-dinner drinks and to hear the live music which they often have on weekends. I was here for a birthday lunch for a work colleague, and was pleasantly surprised by the diverse menu which included several vegetarian options. They have a child's menu. This is a great place...

Last year we found this place on the way back from Mt. Snow. My 5 year old son ordered the meatloaf which was so amazingly good I ate it on him! I couldn't wait to get back this year and was definitely not disappointed. My wife and son shared the fish tacos and bacon Stout mac and cheese - both... More

We've visited this restaurant in summer and just recently. If the weather's nice you can sit on the back deck and view the mighty Hudson River. Too cold for that now, inside there's plenty of seating and a large bar area. The beer selection is eclectic and the food above average. Burgers are huge and the mac and cheese exceptionally...

We were here with a group of 14 people on a Monday night. It was trivia night; we didn't participate, but the questions were varied and interesting, and quite a few diners did join in. I started with a Whiskey Amber Beer (one of many choices). Appetizers at our table included loaded nachos, Rhode Island Calamari, Brown's Beer Pretzels. Entrees... More

Browns has a good beer selection. My favorite part though is the outdoor deck. My girlfriend and me like to catch up while sipping iced teas on the deck in the summer. They don't push you out.

We go to Brown's at least twice a month and for the most part it is always better than average. Although normally good the food can be inconsistent. The last time we went my grandson's burger was burnt. A simple hamburger should never be burnt especially when he always gets it medium. They have been open a long time so... More

Great beer Always something new to try. Even know it was busy they were quick to wait on me at the bar. Bartenders very friendly and quick with a drink. Great for locals but also a college crowd after happy hour

I had not been there in a while but they really seemed to have upped their game! Both food and service are much improved from a couple of years ago. Service is still a tad on the slow side but very professional. A true anchor of the Troy dining scene.
