Always fine.

We have been to Brown's many times over the years. The food is fine and the beer is great. The crowd is family friendly and the servers experienced. The deck is great in the summer.

I am not what you would call a regular, but I am a frequent customer. The food is always tasty, the beers are delicious, and the waitstaff friendly. It is not a quiet place, but who wants that in a pub-like environment?? Not me!

Always great beer. Food always good , some choices better than others, possibly based on who's cooking?. Hostess the other night was totally uncommunicative with our party and others we observed. Threw menus on table without a word or eye contact.

Hubby and I had dinner here after a concert at the Troy Music Hall. He had 2 beers, 1 sour and 1 IPA which were good. He had the pork burger which was excellent. I had the gobbler wrap which was disappointing. Very few fillings in the wrap and not enough mayo. However the server was terrific. We do enjoy... More

Went out on a Tuesday around 7 pm. Had a beer sampler while we waited. They way we decided what type of beer we liked. Place was pretty busy for a Tuesday the full week before Thanksgiving. Server was nice, but it took a while to get our calamari. It was almost warm. If it would have been served hot... More

I only come here when I have to. The ambiance and size of the place is lively and nice (and they have a great outdoor patio), but the service has always been lacking and the food consistently mediocre at best. Recently came here with my fiancé and another couple for dinner on a Saturday night. It was an hour wait... More

The beer here was great, and the soft pretzels were to die for. We ended up ordering more, they were so good! The balcony (looking out over the river) was perfect for a sunny September day. Our family enjoyed the service and atmosphere on our way through town.

The waitress sensed we were on a tight timeline. Buffalo chicken salad all around. Delicious, not too much, and lots of bits and bites to make each taste wonderful. Nice place.. But not an extraordinary experience.
