“Who are the kids in the suits?” I ask Tony the bartender. “They are your legislators!!” POLITICAL KARAOKE I just want a beer and something to eat, minding my own business, and find myself in the throes of a thrilling evening!

I was at a meeting in the nearby Education Department and found this great local place. Our party of three, for lunch, all had excellent meals including Turkey Club and salads. The service was quick and everyone was very friendly. Give it a try!

Went here for lunch with colleagues from work. The food was delicious. My hamburger was juicy and tasty! The fries were fresh, hot, and looked like they were handcut. Go there for a great burger and quick eats!

Recommended to us by a friend who lives in Albany. Pleasant, small, friendly--the usual pub menu at the usual pub prices with the usual pub quality. Service was a bit slow, but I gather someone hadn't shown up, so they were understaffed.

I did not partake in eating here, but stopped by for a quick brew before the St. Patrick's Day parade. They had beer on tap by the front door to make it easier for the patrons who just wanted a quick drink. i wish I had come earlier to get a bite to eat. The atmosphere was great here. Patrons...

Sunday afternoon we were at the Albany Institute of History and Art and needed to get something to eat before looking at dead mummies (are there any other kind). Headed across the street for El Mariachi, which was closed. Right next door was this place so we headed inside. Friendly, inviting, quiet. We ate off the brunch menu. Different menu... More

Try the prime rib. Out of this world. Even the sides were done perfectly. I recommend this place highly.

The John Wayne Burger rules, but I'm still sour about that time I got kicked out simply because I tried to dance with the open mic band with the dude that looked like Milton :-(
