The calamari app is great! We ordered 4-5 apps, calamari was spot on. Loved the Mac and cheese! Co workers liked the kick of the spicy Mac and cheese to. I had the burger...normal good burger. Service was great!

I think Brown's is one of Troy's best pubs to visit. They brew their own beer, have special menu dishes, accommodate awesome wedding parties and I always feel at home there. Young and old visit this quaint spot on the Hudson River for a quick lunch, dinners and nights out on the town. I recommend going there with a close... More

What made our experience so wonderful at Browns Brewing in Troy was the friendly and welcoming staff. Sure the beer was very good and the food was tasty, but what made our visit so great was the staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Bar service was spot on and recommendations were helpful. Many times... More

Ate here during the week for dinner. All in all it was a letdown. Biggest issue was the service. While the lady was nice, the actual execution was horrible. Roughly 5 minutes before first drink, 15 minutes on the appetizer, and even worse for the main course. Brought the completely wrong dish to my partner, at that point we just... More

Great place to drink, eat and enjoy, from the back deck you can see the Hudson River while you have your meal.

Driving through Troy on our way back from Albany airport yesterday we just had to make a stop at Brown's. Even early the place is packed but we were given a great table at a window. THE best waitress and delicious pub food. Thick loaded potato soup, a really delicious and pretty chicken pot pie, and wraps- the buffalo chicken... More

My wife and I met a couple for dinner. It was Sat night and parking was an adventure into itself. Once parked we headed up the back entrance. The bar is visually very nice. The restaurant dinning areas are upstairs and down. The oatmeal stout is highly recommend. My wife had the corned beef and enjoyed it. She likes here... More

I love coming to Brown's. The atmosphere and food has always been reliable. Since it is so popular, be prepared to wait for a table. This place has it all. It has outside dining, tavern space, an upstairs dining room, and one other restaurant space downstairs that combines the tavern and dining area. The pub is set in an old... More
