Went on a Sunday afternoon. One other party in restaurant. We sat at the bar. The waitress who was very pleasant came over and stuck her hand in the water and then wiped the bar off. She said she saw something sticky there. Left the water on the bar. She took outer drink order and served it, no coaster or... More

Every time I go there the food is mediocre at best. their hours are inconsistent. I've been there at 8pm in the middle of a meal with 3 other tables of patrons and the waitress began turning up the chairs and vacuuming around us. I've brought friends there for their prime rib dinner special and my friends joked that they... More

My wife and I stopped here twice between trips to and from Albany and Vermont. We stopped twice on Friday evenings about 7:00pm. The restaurant appears to be a favorite of locals from the friendly conversation between staff and customers. Our waitress was fun and informative. She waited on us both evenings. We are from WIsconsin and the place felt... More

We recently stopped by Potters Tavern for lunch. The service was a little slow but the food was tasty. We enjoyed the potstickers, Connecticut lobster roll and the mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was delicious - should have tried it with the bacon like the table next to us. Next time. Worth a stop for a quick bite... More

First off, let me say, I am a 65 year old, disabled, woman and retired Nurse Midwife, who has NEVER been more humiliated in her life. I stopped here on a cross country trip and ended up meeting with a NY State Police Officer, which was interesting, because I've never had any trouble where I've had to deal with the... More

We stopped by on a road trip just looking to grab a quick meal. The food was certainly yummy, but the staff was very distracted and a bit unprofessional. The prices were a little high considering the food that was served.

Potter Tavern is a little restaurant on Route 7, well outside Troy, NY, in spite of its address. We stopped here on a very rainy evening in late August on one of our frequent drives between our home in New Hampshire and Rochester, NY. This is the perfect place to stop and get off the road during the perverbial dark... More
