Dino!

I am very proud to say that my last visit to Dinosaur was delicious! I went when they very first opened and my experience was so-so. Then I had a string of visits that were hit or miss to say the least. Then just this month I tried again and BINGO! Everything was great! Food was perfect. Friendly... read more

This place is like a sports bar, but without all the sports. Good food, reasonable prices, and attentive wait staff made for an enjoyable visit. It's definitely not a fancy place - it was actually rather rustic - but it was comfortable. The best I can compare to is going to a family gathering in someone's backyard. I'd definitely visit...

I went to Dinosaur on a Wednesday night. The place was packed. I know from living in Albany 15 years ago that the area is starved for good BBQ. I ordered the pulled pork plate with cole slaw and fries for sides, along with Allagash White beer. The beer was excellent, as usual. I know from talking to my friends... More

I found that this restaurant has a great location on riverbank. Also it is nicely decorated, has a very good ambiance. Place was packed, even had a wait list on a weeknight. Staff was really friendly, service was great. Pretty decent beer selection. But it all ends there. I found the food to be very average. So this is a... More

Nice location near the water & our hotel. People were friendly. BBQ was OK but not great. The meats were all good, we had a combo of ribs, pulled pork & brisket. The one thing we didn't really care for was the sauce. It was a little on the sour side. We would probably try somewhere different next time we... More

The prices were a little steep and the BBQ was just average. I tried it all. Not super BBQ like in Texas, Memphis or Carolina. Just up state NY BBQ. No wow factor for me.

Enjoying great food while over looking the water, this was my first visit to this restaurant. I indulged in BBQ jerk salmon, BBQ rice, potato salad and lemonade...absolutely deliciously prepared and the service was awesome.

Great place for BBQ, got a booth overlooking the Hudson River, boats & crews were out on the river. A nice place to relax and have a beer, many different beers along with local craft brews, Had the Fried Green tomatoes while waiting for our meal, very good. We ordered the "Pick 2/3" 2 or 3 entries with 2 sides.... More
