Visited for a late lunch before the concert and ordered the burgers that were out of this world good. So impressed that we returned the next night for the wood fired pizza. The only downfall was that there was a large table of individuals in their 30's who were a bit loud and some foul language but we just tried... More

I had dinner here with my husband and daughter last weekend. We walked in at about 5pm on Saturday night and the place was pretty full already. Our waitress was very good - friendly, knowledgable of the menu, and attentive. She even brought me a sample of a beer to try before I ordered a pint. We ordered their famous... More

This place has an exceptional high end bar menu without a doubt. The smoked wings served with a variety of sauces were definitely an A+ appetizer. Selections like Froi Gras burgers, shrimp poh boys and Tandoori Lamb gyros along with awesome wood fired pizza choices rock this menu. So why the three stars? I will get to that. We sat... More

I love the downtown city tavern! The food and staff are consistently awesome. I enjoy both the stone oven pizza and their other menu options. My favorite are the garlic French fries!

As a visitor to this area, I've eaten here several times. Everything is always good and brought to the table hot. The menu contains basically bar food but is varied. It is difficult for vegetarians. French fries are my favorite. Service is a little spotty. Park is off-street and free. However, it is difficult to find a space during high... More

Stopped in here to eat the Sat after Thanksgiving before going to the Thunder game. Got there a little before 5 and not too many people but in the time between when we sat down and when we ordered the place filled up. They had a nice selection of local beers on tap. My sister and mother both got salads... More

The restaurant scene in Glens Falls has been coming to life these past 3 or 4 years and the new Downtown City Tavern joins Raual's and the Chicken Shack as the new kid on the block. Pleasant, very comfortable laid back atmosphere. Nice, although limited draft beer selection; I enjoyed my Foggy Dog Porter ($7 a pint) with my Chicken... More

I was in Glens Falls with a friend for some shopping. Used TripAdvisor to find a place to eat and saw this place. I was not disappointed. The food was excellent. I got a burger with fries and I absolutely loved the fries! The burger was good but unfortunately they do not cook it the way I asked. It was... More
