What a treat. Was there on a Thursday and then again a week later on a Saturday with friends. If you like great food and music then this is your place. I met Matt who is one of the owners there who plays guitar and tends bar too. Super nice guy with the kind of personality an owner should have.... More

Under new ownership!!! My husband and I took our children there for a family dinner in January. Our meals were all excellent. We have gone back three times. There is consistency in the quality of food and the portions are perfect. I recommend you make a reservation. We recommended it to our neighbors and they have been several times as... More

My husband, son and I recently revisited Carney's Tavern in Ballston Spa for dinner. It is under new management and we were amazed at the many changes that have taken place at Carney's. The food was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Our waitress and other staff made us feel very much at home. The interior of the restaurant has been... More

We had a party of 9. The food was delicious, the pistachio scallops are to die for, the calamari was superb, everyone was very happy with their meal. The service was excellent and friendly. One of the owners stopped and asked if everyone was satisfied. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. A true dining experience with the home town feel.... More

My husband and I took the kids to have a nice post Valentines dinner. I had spent much time at Carneys over the years and more this summer. The summer is what brought me back on the 15th. The food was wonderful and the service quick. Not so much this evening. My soda and gin had no gin. Our waitress... More

Went there for a lunch with my wife on a Friday afternoon. Strangely empty except for the staff. We were greeted warmly and seated by Stephanie. We ordered a few drinks and had burgers for lunch. The food was cooked to order, and was quite delicious. Our waitress stopped by several times to see if everything was ok, or if... More

Went for dinner Wednesday at 6:00 - had never been there before. There was only one waitress on that evening apparently but the manager was going from table to table speaking to customers and helping out. The service was very slow. The manager was apologetic as was the waitress but since there were only one or two tables when we... More

Went to Carney's last night with very high hopes. We had been regular customers for years before previous owner passed away. We had read about the reopening and wanted to wait a bit for the kinks to iron out. So, off we went on a Friday night. I'm going to give you the "good" parts first. Place is spiffed up... More

Last time. The septic smell was outrageous. The owner/chef was out front several times, but never once made an effort to come over to make it personal... And an Irish pub with no Jameson?!!?? What!!

Meatball Sandwich: Consists on 1 slice of bread - Not much meat -THAT WAS IT. They should consider some pasta to go with it, and other than linguini (Linguini is the only pasta they have)
