I've been coming here since the mid 80's and I've been getting consistently great food and service here. Awesome wings! Had the Nachos there this week and they were excellent. Huge plate for a reasonable cost! Highly recommend this place, with friends or with the family. Fast and friendly service!

We stopped on the way home for a bite to eat. Nothing spectacular about this place, the booths are extremely small so for a party of four, we were a bit squashed. The food was ok, but the waitress was great. Would try it again.

I had been here once before so we stopped in for quick meal after checking in to Best Western hotel next door. Waitress seated us immediately and took drink order. I ordered Cheeseburger and fries - burger cooked exactly as I asked and was good size. My husband had a Reuben with sauerkraut that was excellent. They also have a... More

Was staying at the Best Western down the street and thought I would stop in for a drink here instead of the hotel bar, I was glad I did. The bartender was one of the nicest I've ever met, very social and outgoing. I had some boneless wings and French onion soup, both were excellent. The place has a great... More

The game is always on. You can watch from any seat in the house. Plus tonight we enjoyed hearing the blues played... More

Makes some of the best wings in the Capital District. Interior is a bit dated but staff is friendly and food is fresh. Visited with a group who enjoyed a variety of sandwiches, beverages and wings. Wings were the big hit but the French Dip's and Club Sandwiches also great. Would definitely go back.

Had occasion to stop in when out and about. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, quick service, but not rushed. Try thier Breakfast Burger, great meal starter. , wife liked their Carribean Salad, thought it was best she ever had. If in the area on Western Ave, do not miss this stop.

We visited this sports bar for wings based on reviews & we were not disappointed. We are wings purist, usually preferring medium to hot with blue cheese dressing & celery, but their orange ginger variety intrigued us so we did a half& half order. The traditional wings were excellent & worthy of a return trip, but I'm trying to figure... More

We went to the Across The Street pub at 10:15pm for a late meal next to our hotel. What we discovered was a friendly, welcoming bar/restaurant which wasn't to busy at 10pm. We was sat at a table with sports on many surrounding screens. The waitress was polite and helpful and took our order down. Within 15 minutes our food... More

If you are on Western Ave., you have to try this oub. The atmosphere is friendly and the food selection is huge. Fast service and loved the wings! Nice place to bring the kids with you if you want to watch a game and not have to worry about loud mouth people at the bar. Will definitely go again.
