We started out being greeted by a very friendly hostess and were seated fairly quickly. Our waitress looked like she would rather be doing anything other than waiting on us, however. My husband ordered a soda without ice and I ordered a lemonade... when she returned with our drinks she set them down and the soda had ice in it.... More

Absolutely no complaints. Everything was great, food came quickly, staff was friendly. But it wasn't anything special. Pulled pork was awesome.

What an interesting location, next to an English pub ...and the structure inside is an old warehouse. Great family food with an assortment of local beers...kids get the saranac root beer!

Craft beer and craft beer fans can be somewhat pretentious, and when we entered the restaurant that seemed like it could could be the vibe here, but we found things a lot more down to earth. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, food was well done, and even though the space is huge and industrial it somehow felt cozy. People... More

Ambience in an historic building with creative dishes would be enough, but add the award-winning craft beer and you have a very enjoyable and memorable meal. Everyone is friendly, so a good time is guaranteed.

What a neat place. When you drive up to the location, you think you lost and not at the right location. Very minimal signage and rustic warehouse exterior. But, once you get inside the place opens up and you have a great spot for brew and food. We stared with the award winning Kick a$$ brown ale, which was fabulous.... More

My wife and two adult children went recently. We were pleasantly surprised. We felt the food had gone downhill in recent years and only went because our daughter had requested it. We're happy to report the food is again excellent and worth the trip. Of course, the micro-brewed beer has always been excellent. p.s.. Albany Pump Station is also listed... More

Stopped here after a show at Cap Rep which is only a few short blocks away. It was a Sunday afternoon, around 5 or so. Fairly busy, but not packed. Had no trouble getting a table. Have been here a number of times and have always enjoyed the beer and the food. My biggest complaint is that it can be... More

Large, warehouse-feel, open room, with tables and chairs and glass walls to see parts of the brewery. A variety of ales on tap at reasonable prices. Menu is really descriptive which was good for me as I'm not a fan of strong, aromatic American ales. I also enjoyed their special buffalo chicken sandwich which was awesome. Would definitely recommend.
