“Fantastic, ample food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

On a spur of the moment spouse and I had decided to have dinner at Blessings. Well, can't say enough about the size of the portions (plenty to eat and then have leftovers for lunch the next day). It was a varied menu and everything looked good, or in our case, tasted wonderful. Prices were very reasonable, waitstaff was efficient, although harried with such a
busy crowd. It was loud and crowded there-seems to be a local pub, also and stop-off for golfers who were a little too rude for my taste. HOWEVER, food was great. Prices were very reasonable.
Blessings serves lunch so that may be the best time to go. Definitely worth it!

“Best food in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

It's a little bar with excellent food. Gravy fries, wings, burgers, and salads too. Try the cheese burger chowder if they have it.

“Triple D needs to visit this place, easy to not notice but so worth stopping in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

This place is an institution in the area, close to the Albany International Airport. A local favorite among those that know of it. All food is prepared fresh to order and is always excellent. Wing lovers need to try Blessings delicious and meaty perfectly fried chicken wings, they are truly great. For such a small place in size, their menu is colossal, and all dishes are always available. This is a place filled with good people and great food, if in the area its a must try.
