I always enjoy Brown's. Last night, we brought our out-of-town guest for the second time and he loved it. He is from Mexico, so the burgers at Brown's are a big treat for him! I always find the service superb, and last night was no exception. I have never had a bad meal, or a bad time, at Brown's. I... More

I've lived in the Capital District for many years, but Troy is an area that I have not spent a lot of time. Tonight, I joined some friends for dinner at Brown's Brewing Company. I probably won't go back. I was able to find Brown's reasonably easily using my GPS, and there is a parking lot just down the street... More

I go to Brown's on a semi frequent basis. Great food, usually great service. I wish I could say I love their beers, but I can only say I like their beers. Some more than others.

Sunday lunch at Browns proved to be enjoyable and hit the spot for food and beer. Four of us all had a different luncheon entree and we were all pleased. The beer sampler was a big favorite and our waitress was great. Her suggestions were right on and she really knew her beer. A casual place that wasn't too noisy... More

I have given Brown's ample opportunity to redeem itself, but unfortunately they never come through. The food is good as far as pub food is concerned (if not somewhat overpriced) which is what has forced me to give it the benefit of the doubt. Two visits ago we waited for two hours after we were seated for our entrees to... More

My wife and I moved to the Capital District in 2001 and found Brown's thru Yankee Brewer. We checked it out and were very pleased not only with the beer but the food, the service, and the ambiance. We usually find good conversation at the bar and have met new friends there. The burgers and the specials are our favorites... More

It was quesadilla day, or so the menu announced. Of course we had to try one! It was filled with a nice balance if chicken, veggies and cheese. Guacamole , one of the few things that are not made here, was good. Other samplings included a burger(delicious), a Cobb salad (large and full of interesting ingredient), veggie burger (not a...

Nice atmosphere - it's big and open, nice decor, but it's quite noisy. I had dinner with a friend on a Thursday evening and we were almost yelling to hear each other. It was very busy, but our server was efficient and knowledgeable - knew the food as well as the beer, and knew what they were out of and... More
