The staff was friendly and attentive. However be advised that this place has a limited menu when there are events at the Times Union Center. I had the Bacon Cheese Burger which was made to my perfection. I was very satisfied with my food.

Had a day trip to Albany and wanted a quite spot with drinks, good food and a view! Got all those things plus great service! It's a small place in an old building but it's charming as hell!

However, we were glad we did as it was crackling with energy and noise, creating a fabulous atmosphere. The food and the craft ales were awesome and the busy waitress was quick on her feet and...

Everything was just average but it was a good place to hang out after work and participate in a Trivia night. Trivia had 20 questions and the winner got a Gift Card to the Pub.

Nice bar with lots of craft beer / drink options. Pretty trendy, not a lot of natural character. They offer a menu that looked yummy.
