“Great food value and cheap drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Food was good value, cheap wine and for beer lovers a huge selection of beers at good prices. Service was okay the 1st time, 2nd visit terrible, waiters were busier chatting to each other than paying attention to the customers. My husband complained, and needless to say we were not happy with the %18 gratuity that is included at most restaurants in SOBE area.

“Worst restaurant visited in miami beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Visited this on our last night in Miami wanting to go to a nice place, but this was completely the opposite. They didn't have most of the main dishes on the menu and swapped the side dishes without asking as they didn't have those either. My friends ordered the steak, which was more fat than meat so most of it was wasted. Another friend ordered fries with her food and they came out cold so told the waitress, who took it back and mins later brought it back after what tasted like they had been re-heated in a microwave. The sides were brought out more than 5 mins after the main dish which meant that you either wait for the side dish and let your main dish get cold or you eat the main dish without the side dish!!! Would not recommend at all.

“Great place to stop for a beer on Lincoln road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We spent a couple of days at The Albion and really enjoyed going down the Lincoln road area to eat and stop for a few beers . This was my favorite for a beer , the bartender was great very talkative and friendly .I stopped to see if they had my purple haze beer which they did , it was very reasonable in price as compared to other places.

“Not good food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The best thing they actually had (because our waitress pointed out everything they didn't have available) was the wings. The rest of the food options did not taste good and she wasn't attentive enough, I had to get up to find her to get our bill

“Excellent options and helpful bartender”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

I was twice in Rio Station during previous month. Once with my girlfriend and the second time with my friend. It is definitely not a good place for date. Moreover, the servers are not very familiar with the menu (plenty of beers), and it seems that their recommendation is more first-that-came-to-my-mind style than qualified recommendation. But for the second time (with my friend) we were accidentally sitting behind the bar (firstly we were only waiting for toilet, but finally we spent there whole evening). The bartender was great and honest. He was definitely familiar with the tastes, kinds and combinations of beers that they had. Even if we are more for draft beers, after first round he persuaded us for bottles and it was delicious. Sorry for the one missing star, it is because of servers.
