Best bartenders in the area. Great wings and apps. Love going to the nail. Awesome craft brew selection. There’s always something going on, karaoke, trivia, etc.

Stopped by here with another couple for a late afternoon light meal. There is a good beer selection and there were also several drink specialties. The menu was very good with a selection of appetizers, sandwiches, quesadillas, and flatbreads. They are also known for their great chicken wings. We had a variety of quesadillas and sandwiches and they were very good and the service was efficient and pleasant.

Great atmosphere, fairly good food but the place is LOUD!! They do the free wings on your birthday and that brings so much business into the place that if you just want to go there after work with a couple of friends, have a few drinks, and a bite to eat you have to wait sometimes 45 minutes to an hour for a table. The last couple of times that happened, we just ended up going someplace else

This establishment looks deceivingly bigger on the outside than the inside. I'd heard that there often was a wait for a table. Now I know why. Three quarters of the space is devoted to a tavern area with a 4 sided bar & high top tables & chairs (not a fan). The regular, much smaller dining area is on one side, in what looked like a porch area. FYI, the Rusty Nail Grill and Tavern was a 2018 tied runner-up for best chicken wings per Capital Region Living magazine. The wings were tasty. They charged extra for splitting flavors & supplied some celery but no carrots though. Lastly, they offer a birthday promotion on your actual date of birth in which, per their website, "We will treat you to the number of chicken wings = your age."
