Best bar food!

I've been here a few times but most recently was with my parents in October. My father remarked that it looked exactly the same inside as it had when he was a college student in Troy in the 80s.

Although I've been to the Ruck on 3 different occasions I decide to comment on them all...the first was amazing (wings BEER and fries), the second time very good (burger, wings and fries) except they forgot the fries and still charged me for them. The last time was okay ... the wings were not completely sauced and under-cooked....so on my... More

Not large, not service friendly but still a great place to hang out for an evening. The beer selection is great! The food is good and fairly fast but not exciting. There is a real gem of a shuffleboard table in the back that really made for a fun evening.

Stopped in at The Ruck when I my husband and I were in Albany. Nice selection of craft beers from across the US, several size options are offered so that you dont have to commit to a large serving. We each had different burgers and were pleased with the food. We were there for a late lunch and so the... More

Heard their wings were good so thought I would try some. Holy moly! So true! Best I've had in a long time! Highly recommend the deviled eggs, too.

We love to go to the Ruck for their incredible wings. I mean finger-licking incredible! Their new chef is quite creative and we can't wait to try out the various other items on their new menu now as well. Before, it was solely about the wings, however, we've heard some great things about this new chef, so we will be... More

I actually go to this bar just for their wings and fries. I have heard their brunches are also pretty good.

I finally made it to the Ruck to try their wings and 2 craft brews. I was not disappointed by either. I will definitely be back for more.

After living one year in central London, moving to Troy is a total different experience. Nonetheless, Troy has its own significance. The Ruck is a very intresesting place. You get the chance to endeavor upon different Ales. The staff are very friendly and the live music they have on Wed rock! I remember the first time there was a guy... More

A little pricey and don't go here for food, but amazing bar atmosphere. Great size, awesome shuffleboard table, huge tap selection, draws a young but not too raucous crowd
