Dirty, dingy and a throwback to the old pub days with beers, smokes, fish and chips but if thats what you're expecting, it won't dissapoint. Only two house beers on tap but they were excellent, a sour and an IPA. They retain the largest beer menu I've ever seen, and have very good tacos and burgers to boot. Mens room... More

This place is a bit eclectic, but that shouldn't be a surprise given it's located in a college town. It's a fun place though, with a great atmosphere, a wide selection of beers and some decent pub food. You can even play some pool if you want. All in all, a positive experience.

Julia, our server, was fantastic! She was friendly, attentive and one of the best anywhere, even in comparison to high-class, expensive restaurants. That said, the food was also top notch. My friend had the burrito and I had chicken Napoleon. The burrito was HUGE, and my friend said one of the best he's had. I had them tweak my chicken... More

Located right off of the main drag, hear the antique village, we came here for dinner around 5 pm on a Saturday night, and the place was packed already. Lots of food variety here! Place has a long bar. We were lucky enough to get window seating. Food is served with large portions and very tasty. Lots of unique items... More

Food is very good. Service is slow but if you're not in a hurry it's no big deal. They have lots of beer! Parking can be a real pain but the food is worth it.

When we were seated the hostess took our drink order and said the waitress would be over right away. We waited at least 10 minutes for the waitress to come by to say she would be with us in a minute. It was another 15 minutes and we still had not received our drinks. The waitress finally took our order,... More

Traveling from NYC to Albany, didn't want rest area food, was advised to try this place. Good decision. Eclectic is probably a good way to describe the decor, but the dining experience was very nice. Our server was pleasant and well informed about the large beer selection and the menu. I won't describe the food in detail (5 of us... More
