“This place is great!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I haven't been there in years. A total makeover makes this place a must to visit. They brew on premises. There are several micro brew selections daily. You can even get a jug (growler) to go. Ranges from pub food to some interesting entries. Try one of the gourmet pizzas. Everything is perfect until you step out onto Union Street and hear the noise coming from a bar around the corner (Clinton's Ditch).

“Nice place to meet friends for a drink”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Service is okay. Food, okay. Prices, a bit dear.
But, the Van Dyke is located in the Historic Stockade, Schenectady. Beautiful and elegant inside, there is also outdoor seating. Casual and comfortable place to meet with friends for a drink.

Reviewed December 13, 2012

Always a great lineup of jazz artists. Food, drink, and service are all fine, too. Don't miss a chance to visit this landmark when touring the historical Stockade area of Schenectady.

“Good place to take a Date - Close to Proctor's”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The food and beer were very good here and the atmosphere was nice. The reataurant brews its own beer, and it's good! It is also walking distance to Proctor's Theatre. Very nice place
