There's a nice bier garden in the back, and a cozy bar in the front. The food here is fantastic; try the Fillet of Beef. It's name isn't too flashy but its one of the best steaks you can get in Albany.

We were looking for a place to grab a quick drink and appetizer while running an errand on Lark St. Based on past experiences, I suggested we stop in for a drink and appetizer at DeJohn's. It was 3:30 p.m. and there were two or three people in the whole place...and they were wasted and loud. The bartender was friendly enough, but he would ask, "What?" each time we'd ask something -- even for a menu.

Disappointed. It felt like we were infringing upon some mid-afternoon binge fest.

My family and three friends decided to have lunch at DeJohn's on our way to the Tulip Festival in downtown Albany. Eventhough the place was not busy, they seemed to have an issue with finding a table that would seat the seven of us together. After waiting for well over 10 minutes we were seated upstairs, (table was set for 6 instead of 7 which we had to get corrected). Needless to say, we were the only party upstairs so not sure what took so long. Things did not get better. Without going into the horrible details, it took over an hour and 15 minutes to get our lunch. When the food began to arrive, each person's dish came out one at a time with at least 5 minutes between dishes. The waitress attempted to serve us food we did not order and one of the wraps that was ordered came out wrong. There was no attempt to make our party feel better about our experience eventhough it was obvious that we were not happy. They even billed us 50 cents for the additional dressing my daughter asked for, (her wrap was served dry). It's too bad, because the food was pretty good. Don't waste your time here!

I only went there for drinks, which was good. Quite noisy though.

I went with my collegues to this pub (it's not a restaurant) and were very disappointed.
The manhattan soup was VERY SOUR, it was something like tomato in can with some clams in it. The "fra diavolo" linguini was hot and spicy enough to make a mexican guy cry.

We asked for bread when the soup was served, but they brought it only after we finished the dinner.

For that and a beer I paid 38 dollars!!! Too much for frozen fish and can tomato.

Never again in DeJohn's pub.
