The Turf has outdone itself today. This is by far the best Mother's Day Brunch I have ever had. Until now, I have other favorites..but they have been bumped and this is our numero uno place for brunch. The food was amazing. There was something for everyone, including vegetarian, plus the salads which could have been vegan. I made 2... More

Turf Tavern in the Village of Scotia is a restaurant to enjoy a great sit down meal. Steaks, Fish, Chicken, all prepared with wholesome home town cooking is always served with a pleasant smile and concern for customer satisfaction.

My wife and I have lived in Scotia for over 15 years now. We’ve been to the Turf Tavern only a handful of times – mostly for sports related banquets or showers. We decided to give them a try in the restaurant this week since we purchased a LivingSocial coupon. When we arrived in the restaurant there was an immediate... More

The Turf Tavern is classy yet comfortable. The menu offers a wide variety of steak, pork, fish, shellfish, pasta and desserts. We have tried everything from the Prime Rib, salmon, broiled scrod, stuffed pork loin, to the cheesy/creamy casserole of scallops and seafood! A great variety and all well prepared! Dessert are decadent as well and various specialties are always... More

I love this restaurant. We've now been twice -- first time was a couple of months ago -- and I already consider it a local favorite. I think what I like about it most is the atmosphere and attitude: it doesn't try to be something it's not. It's easy going, warm and welcoming... and it serves delicious food. I get... More

A group of us goes out to dinner once a month. It was "restaurant week" in Schenectady so we had the dinners from those choices. My chicken bruschetta was good but could have had a little more pesto. My husband had the prime rib, which he said was excellent. The Thai fried shrimp appetizer was excellent but could had a... More

My family and I visited the Turf Tavern a few weeks ago on a late Saturday evening. The service was excellent from the time we got there until we left. My daughter has food allergies and they were very willing to accommodate her needs. The food was excellent. I had a filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly. We will... More

We have eaten there several times and have always have a good meal. We were there on New Years Eve, we have a good meal but it was slow.
