    Best brunch I've had in a while! Albany needs more places like this. $12 for delicious kale and sun dried tomato eggs Benny with a Bloody Mary. Can't beat it! Cool vibe, friendly staff. A must see!

    Huge venue, beer garden open during the warmer seasons, free pizza with a pint of beer, mechanical bull, fast / efficient / friendly staff, Albany's #1 new bar! What more could you ask for?

    Point 1. Free pizza with beer. Amazeballs. Great beer selection. Food excellently priced, we tried crab cakes, chicken sandwich and deep-fried Mac and cheese. All very very good.

    I used to love this place, but no more. Menu change, poor food prep (soggy fries, greasy foods, pool of dirty brown fryer fat on plate), ridiculously slow service (10+ mins to get beer) . Never again.

    Outstanding beer selection, great cocktails, and friendly, knowledgeable bartenders. Wish I was here long enough to try the gastropub grub.

    They give you a ticket for a personal pizza with every pint. How am I EVER going to eat ten pizzas? Also wish I'd seen the beer garden before I ordered dinner in the front. Cool place though

    Avoid on the weekends, at least at night....communal seating and lousy acoustics make the place intolerably loud.

    The pumpkin pear crisp is unreal. Its like ten times better than any apple pie I have ever had.

    Sorry, but "we've only been open 11 months" is NOT an excuse not to have a dessert menu. Beer selection is good, though, as is charcuterie plate.

    The apple cider ice cream sandwich is amazing! It's sandwiched between two house made oatmeal raisin cookies and it's huge!!
