Ever since hearing about the birthday wing special I've been taking my relatives there on their birthdays. The special is worth the trip as long as you come hungry and really like chicken wings. The only thing the special doesn't include is the blue cheese and carrots, those are extra. There is also a drink special along with it that... More

We ordered the grilled buffalo chicken sandwich, the veggie burger, grilled cheese and salad. The food was ready when we got there. Food was great.

Friends and family enjoyed wings , appetizers, and drinks after a day of shopping on Black Friday. Service was good for our party of 9. We will be back again.

Even though Clifton Park has been inundated with chain restaurants and other new choices the Rusty Nail provides the same good food that has been enjoyed by patrons for years. It is a local favorite and it is usually busy. There is a dining area separate from the bar area for larger groups and those wanting more quiet. They have... More

Had heard about the Birthday wing deal and finally did it! Get there early unless you want to wait for a table at the bar. Got a Caesar salad, house salad, premium draft, soda, 2 drafts with the wing deal and we walked out with a small tip (on top of the mandatory 18%) for less than $50. We thought... More

This used to be hands down the best place to get wings, now the quality has suffered. Might be a victim of it's own popularity. Not to worry, the rest of the menu food is excellent as well and the service is very good.
