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.

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

Many fond memories of this place from the 1970's, and it is still serving up good food with a smile!

Don't pass this local place up when looking for a place to eat in Albany. Good pub menu with very good wings. I selected one if the specials- turkey with stuffing potato veg & choice of soup or salad. $9.95. It was good & the turkey veg soup was fresh & great! Bartender Danny (I think) had been there for...

I had a business meeting at a local hotel and they delivered. Courteous and the food was excellent and incredibly well priced.

Only been here once, but was not too impressed. Atmosphere and service is fine, but food was poor. You would expect a pub to have a good burger, but that's the case here. The burger was wimpy and was served on a kaiser roll. If Subway ever served a burger, this is how I'd imagine it - lots of veggies... More
