A nice little surprise

My wife and I stopped in here and found a delicious dinner and friendly staff. The buffalo chicken is really good and our server was extra friendly and prompt. The food came out hot and quick. The downside, dear lord this place needs a remodel and updated/cleaner bathrooms.

We were staying close by and walked over to this pub and found it was like "Cheers" - everyone seemed to be regulars, knew each other and were very friendly. It is definitely more of a bar than restaurant but the food - a cuban panini and chicken grinder were very good. The service was quick, efficient, friendly and all... More

Great place. Friendly Albany folks. Great selection on menu items and drinks. Bag Pipers came in and played. That was pretty cool

We were staying at the Best Western Hotel @1228 Western Hotel and decided to go there. The menu was extensive and the service was extremely friendly and cordial. They had a great selection of Panini sandwiches. In less than 10 minutes our food was on the table. Had no complaints about anything in this restaurant.The seating was very comfortable and... More

Went here on a recommendation from our hotel. Service was great and the staff was really friendly but the food was not great. I ordered a burger and was expecting a big juicy burger but it was a thin patty on a huge roll- disappointing.

The atmosphere was very inviting. The service was very quick and efficient. There were three orders in our party - two of which were Panini sandwiches which my friends said were good. I had the fish and chips and although it was a good price, it was the worst I've ever had in a restaurant. It must have been either... More

... as my wife said. Pleasantly surprised to find it still serving food at 10:30 PM. The atmosphere was sort of haphazard 70's-80's style with laminated wood tables and faux Tiffany lamps. The server made us feel right at home though everyone seemed to be a local. Service was fast. Drinks are generous pours. The wings are really good, the... More

This place reminded me of the TV show "Cheers"...you know, where everybody knows your name? What a nice friendly place! Obviously a local's joint but they treat the occasional newcomer very well. Dan the bartender (of many, many years the locals told me) makes you feel right at home. Drinks are generous (i.e. full size) and they have a decent... More

Was staying next door at the Days Inn. Bar had a great atmosphere, plenty of televisions to catch up on the various games going on and the wait staff was excellent. Food was really good and they had a big selection and the desert was excellent. Waitress applied a 10% discount because I was staying next door at the hotel... More

We were expecting to find ourselves at Sutters and eating chicken wings. . . . as we have for many years, both as travelers and once residents of the area, and were saddened to find it closed so the search was on for a substitute. Happily, we found Across the Street Pub, and were more than pleased. The chicken wings... More
