Stopped in for appetizers on our way to the Candle Collective. What struck us immediately was the atmosphere of the place. Nice mixture of families and couples. The building is over 200 years old but didn't feel drafty or neglected. Beer selection was great and the food was good. I had the Chicken Apple Salad which was delicious! The apples... More

My wife and her friend had the hot turkey dinner, terrible. We asked the waitress if it was Real fresh cut turkey she said yes. When the meal was delivered we discovered it was from a turkey roll. Fresh turkey does come in round slices. My friend got the meat loaf Terrible. We were there 10/29/16. 6:30PM. WE WILL NEVER... More

Just average, go in a pinch if you need to eat. I have eaten there many times but the last time was not that good. The buffalo chicken salad was big clumps of romaine lettuce with big sticks of celery and carrots that were really too large for a salad. Blue cheese dressing mediocre. Chicken sandwich with roasted red peppers... More

A Friday night, two couples out for dinner. Mid-October, so we wanted to leak peek around the area. We live about an hour away, but with traffic, it took us longer to get there. Our reservation was held, we were seated immediately. Two Antioxidant cocktails, and two beers and we toasted the weekend. We thought we needed appetizers, so we... More

On a beautiful summer's day we ate lunch in the coblestoned patio that offers umbrella tables. The Factory, located in Ballston Spa, is 5 miles south of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and Saratoga State Park. Service was prompt, friendly, informative and in all ways, excellent! The food was perfectly cooked with delicious flavors and homemade French fries that are... More

Beautiful old building in wonderfully quaint town. The food was great, and bountiful. We took four carry out boxes with us. Crazy lots of food at reasonable prices.

This is the 3rd time I've been here and by far the worst. Chicken and biscuits should always be made with chicken on the bone. Anything else is just awful. Friend got the pot roast. He enjoyed it. I thought it wasn't very good. Sauce/gravy just was horrible. French onion soups seemed old and bitter.

Hadn't been back in years-so many places so little time!-and was happy to see an enlarged, very diverse menu and MANY draft beers to choose from! Around the table we had a huge burger with a generous portion of sweet potato fires, crispy fish & chips and a broiled fish dish as well coming with with 2 sides! Waitresses was... More

Came here for the first time and discovered another local gem. The building itself has a varied and historic past that is being put to good use. It has a nice patio area also. The restaurant is old brick with exposed pipes and it has a homey feel. It has a nice craft beer list and bar area. The restaurant... More

I wish I had taken pictures. There's a visible layer of dust throughout the entire place...shelves, pictures, sports memorabilia and tvs. It's filthy. Aside from the filth, we were sat immediately on Mothers Day. Our server was pleasant but we did have to ask for a draft list. To my disgust, the draft list was filthy, sticky and stained. But...
