Excellent!! I can't say enough about this place. The wait staff, were friendly, and very attentive. The food as always, was delicious. Only negative, was the drinks were a little high priced for a corner pub.

For quite a while I have heard how good the food was at Stoney's. The Las time I was there it was strictly a corner bar...but now it's so much more. The three of us arrived at 3:30 on a Sunday afternoon. The menu is extensive with plenty of variety. We ordered Shrimp Alexander as an appetizer and it was... More

We love Stoney's, you will NOT find a bar that is as well kept as Stoney's. It's spotless inside. The food is very good considering it's more of a bar than a restaurant and the owner is always on-premise making sure everything is running smoothly. He's a really nice guy, BTW. Our Aunt and Uncle returned to Schenectady for a... More

Stoney's is a long lived Schenectady establishment in a somewhat shady part of town. It was formerly a bar and has redeveloped itself as a restaurant. The food is good, as is the beer selection. The service was very slow. The seating is tight, they really need to get new tables and chairs.

We've been going to Stoney's for about a year and has become a regular favorite! Friendly owner and excellent and generous food. Wednesdays are "specials" night-- can't get a better deal anywhere-- about $10--- lots of food. I keep ordering the stuffed haddock-- never had better! Their chef is should be a national treasure! Irish music is very entertaining!

We've been to Stoney's several times and have always had a decent time. Well just this past Sunday we were there and ordered steamers like we always do and this time it was served to us with ALOT of dirt & sand all over everything. It was very obvious that whoever prepared this in the kitchen would have seen this... More

I have lived in Schenectady/Rotterdam my whole life, I did not know this place existed until some friends of mine were hired to play some music there. It is not on the best street/ neighborhood in Schenectady but don't let that stop you from visiting this establishment. The food and the staff were great! My friend and I had a... More

If you are looking for a place in Schenectady where the locals go, this is the place. Down home atmosphere. Accommodating staff. Quintessential Irish Pub with live Irish music on many evenings.
