While our waitress was lovely, the food was just awful! I ordered a tuna salad over greens, dressing on the side. The greens were soaking wet, & I'd say at least half of them were slimy & uneatable! My husband's salad too, the Cobb, while not quite as slimy as mine, was also disgusting. How could the kitchen send these... More

Located on the Hudson River, Brown's appeals to everyone. Inside and Outside dining. Good for small group get togethers, families, and bringing your significant other. Enjoy some Great Food and Beer. This is a Brew Pub, with their beers being distributed locally. For the more adventurous take in a local band at Revolution Hall, right next door. You will return... More

Great beer paired with an ever-changing food menu. They even employ a real chef! If you like craft beer and a great atmosphere Brown's is the place.

We went to Brown's, a group of six, on a Tuesday night, on our way to a concert. Folks looking for sandwiches, a couple of beers and a nice setting to catch up in. Brown's scored in all three areas. The beer is, of course, their own, expertly crafted, great flavors and variety. The Oatmeal Stout is always a winner... More

A wide assortment of beers ranging from pale ales to Gose to stouts to sours to barrel-aged fare. All the beers were worth trying and found worthy by my wife and myself. We didn't have dinner but saw what looked like pretty standard pub food on the plates of other patrons. We did have some delicious vanilla cheesecake and porter-infused... More

Stopped in for an after graduation lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Naturally the beer selection was endless. They have a large menu with some daily specials. Mallory our waitress was very attentive to our needs. Large burgers (The Uncle Sam Burger) and Quesadillas were very tasty. Reasonable prices too.

As a big fan of craft beer, I was excited to finally get to Brown's. The food was disappointing, but the beer was good. The Riveter IPA was the best part of the experience; a nice hoppy kick and a citrusy blend. The service wasn't awful, but not great; the server only messed up one of our orders. The food... More

This brew pub has a great selection of beer that's made on premises and has creative, fresh pub food at affordable prices. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere with outdoor seating on the bank of the Hudson River. You can sample the many types of beer at no cost, and, they offer two sizes of growlers (larger... More

I consider myself a regular there. Once you go, you will want to come back. Excellent menu selections, delicious beer, and friendly service make Browns a must visit in Troy, NY. If you have plans for going somewhere else after, cancel because you will want to stay!!

Went here for a bite to eat and have some drinks with a friend. Love dining alfresco and overlooking the Hudson River. The service was great and the food was delicious. The portions were very large. I will be back to this restaurant and highly recommend it.
