The Back Alley is literally where the Grill is set. They offer a good range of tasty pub food and beverage specials, too. The downstairs section is good for families while upstairs is a comfortable setting for couples.

Right across the street from the Hall of Fame. A nice place for a meal. The chili is delicious. We also had the mac & cheese with shrimp and crawfish. That was also a good dish. The service was good.

There's a small draft beer list & typical pub food. A burger is a burger and a caesar salad comes out like a caesar salad. Atmosphere had nothing to do with Cooperstown but they fed us

My wife, her family and I ate here last June. We all enjoyed the visit. The servers were friendly, the meals were delicious and the prices were fair. I will eat here again when I'm in the area.

Weeknite off-season visit, less than 12 patrons in place for dinner. Waitresses kept moving but ordered the nightly special which took 20+ minutes to appear. Once there, however, it was plentiful and plenty tasty.

While wandering the streets of Cooperstown we found this little gem. small but had a great feel to it. Nice 'pub grub' cold beer/cider and friendly staff. A good stop off

The food was so good that we order take out for our dinner later! Great service and awesome food. A little hard to find at first but totally worth it once you are there!

We ended up eating here both nights we were in Cooperstown. Fantastic food and service both nights, I wish I could remember the name of our server (whoever was working the bar on Oct 30th and 31st) she was fantastic. The food was great, from...More
