Food is good as ever

The food is certainly good, truly as good as I recall from a few decades ago. The decor looks like it was last updated about the time Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon. The service was indifferent for certain . If it weren't for the food quality I'd stay away for a few more decades

This location was a staple for me growing up in Troy, NY. We stopped here after high school dances and athletic events. Time has past but this restaurant pizza is as good as ever. I've been back several times with family and friends. The food and service is excellent.

Whatever claim to fame this place may have had in the past , it is certainly over it. The space is very dated with slight musty smell and sticky feel. The red sauce is too acidic for my taste. Pizza is doughy ,toppings were fair. Service was slow and indifferent . A lot of the patrons seemed to be older... More

Red Front is a Troy institution! They've been around for at least 40 years and make the best pizza. The chicken parm and delmonico steaks are also excellent. Good prices and friendly staff - decent beer selection.

My husband and I lived on 2nd St for a year and we ate at the Red Front numerous time, not only because it was a short walk but because their pizza is amazing. We would only need to get a small and we would usually have 2 slices left over. They had Ommegang Rare Vos beer on tap which... More

I was absolutely appalled by the service and lack of interpersonal skills and conflict resolution by our waitress and 'owner' of the resturant when there was a discrepancy with our bill (we were overcharged). As a big group of friends who regularly go into the resturant and spend 100+ dollars every visit, being treated the way we were was surprising... More

The food you order will arrive cold and burnt. The owner is rude and refused to pay me back for the food that did not arrive in my order. DO NOT EAT HERE!!!

Red Front Restaurant & Tavern is a popular local gathering point and Italian eatery in Troy. It's packed on Friday and Saturday night. Plan on arriving early or you will be waiting a good 30-45 minutes to get a table. The pizza is traditional NY style and is quite good. The decor is quite dated but the staff is quite... More

Mi wife hung out at the Red Front when she was a teenager so when we returned to Troy for her class reunion, a group decided to go to the Red Front. The pizza was good but not great. Our friends tried the cob pizza where they put the cheese under the tomato sauce and said it was good. The... More
