We came here on New Years Eve while visiting family in Albany and had a good time. There were three of us and we ordered interesting drinks, appetizers that were tasty but VERY small for the money. We decided to go back in June and had a bad experience. Warm beer and barely there food, although my husband got the... More

This is exactly what a gastropub is...many different beers,wines and liquors with small plates of tasty food. The atmosphere is charming industrial chic. The staff is congenial and the owner is gracious. There was a nice mixed crowd of hipsters and families. The menu also has a selection of burgers and pizzas. All ingredients were very fresh and thoughtfully put... More

A trip to St. Peters, followed by dinner with friends at the Capital City Gastropub...delightful! Its a small building in what appeared to be a lovely Albany neighborhood--a lot of sidewalk traffic, lawns, families. The Gastropub is not very large and while they had a few tables outside on the sidewalk, its still a bit intimate. The food was very... More

The Gastropub is our go-to place. We love the folks who work there and the food is really fantastic: local and delicious. They know our drink orders and take such good care of us and their other customers. Really a food highlight! So glad to have the Gastro in Albany!

Some places are known only for having amazing food and desserts, others only for having awesome wines or cocktails, a huge beer list, or a respectable selection of bourbon and ryes...but what I love about Capital City Gastropub is that it has the best of all of it. I've never had anything short of delicious and amazing every time I've... More

Everything about our visit was great. We walked in without a reservation on a Saturday night and got a table right away. Moments later the place was full. Interesting and fairly priced menu with a small but thoughtful wine list. Our server was spot on, as was our food. Super tasty and nicely presented. No faults.

Five star foodie fare & variety of craft beers are served in this modern pub. Gastropub never disappoints! The menu features creative specials like pickled onion rings with buttermilk dressing or roasted beet salad with blood orange, feta & za'atar or porchetta with kale and a fried egg. Consistent offerings include delicious burgers & pizza choices.

This is a nice version of a laid back better beer and food place. A small, but high quality, selection of beer and whiskeys. The food menu was eclectic.

Great food with some nice local ingredients and friendly staff. We had the butternut squash ribbons and poutine with mushroom gravy to start. They were both fantastic. The rest of my table ordered burgers (which appeared cooked to order) and I had hanger steak with mushrooms. It was fantastic! Great beer selection and a few nice wine and cider picks.... More

This place has a casual, fun pub atmosphere. It was a little loud, but in all fairness there was a beer tasting event happening the night I was there. Like a traditional pub, the menu is fairly meat heavy. I'm a vegetarian, so I had a pizza and it was awesome. As were the pickled onion rings!

Thank slsnyc
deltasilver98, Owner at Capital City Gastropub, responded to this review

I can assure you that there are always vegetarian options on the menu(albeit somewhat limited during your visit). Our menu changes fairly regularly so at times it can be a little more on the meat heavy side. I do encourage you to take a look at the restaurants webpage and see that there are many more vegetarian options on the... More
