We go often to Brown's still due to waitress Kari who takes such good care of us. The food is good quality however, I think they have made a huge mistake by eliminating some of the old favorites such as Spiedies with Pita bread. I heard they are changing the menu again and I'm not surprised that the new menu... More

A friend and I visited on January 2, which made parking super-easy. We were seated right away and had great service our entire visit. The pulled pork sandwich was great and my companion loved her fish and chips. Substantial portions and a great variety of offerings make this a great choice for lunch.

Stopped in for late dinner and was extremely please by the beer selection. I ordered a plate of wings (multiple sauce options) and my wife who isn't a beer drinker had a wine and a burger. Will be back next time in town

This is definitely your typical american pub few steps above dive bar and a few steps below a modern fancy establishment. The food was not bad but nothing to write home about perhaps my expectations were a little to high. The oatmeal stout was a little thin for my taste but to each his own. Would probably come back for... More

The food and beer here is really good. Browns oatmeal stout is a must if you like dark beer. I also like you can take some browns beer to go

Meeting friends for lunch during Christmas week allowed room for a lot of disappointment. The restaurant was busy, noisy and offered a excited atmosphere. Through it all our waiter managed excellent service and the kitchen manged to produce a great meal. You really couldn't ask for more. I will certainly make it a point to stop in again.

The standard in Troy. Is not hands down the best pub in town, but it's a great atmosphere and a restaurant that I frequently patronize. Almost always overlook burgers so if you want it served anything less than well done you've got to ask twice. Good atmosphere and delicious apps (their beer pretzel and home made honey mustard is delicious)

Food lunch was very good. But, Ashley, the bartender was very knowledgeable on every beer on the menu. She'll even suggest a drink, giving you a sample to try first. Excellent service!!!

This place was so awesome! We walked in, and although it was a little outdated, as soon as we sat down and saw the food and beer menu we had a feeling it would be good. Also, our waitress was wonderful! Maureen was sweet, hospitable, and gave great recommendations. My husband and I each got a flight of beer, it... More
