We have been here many times and always enjoy it. It is being able to have dinner on the Hudson near Albany that brings us back, but the food is good too. The menu is not especially creative, but it is fine. It is watching...More

This is a great setting aside the Hudson, and the servers seemed OK, except a little confused about who would walk where and when. The problem was the food. We docked here because Yanni's looked pretty full. The duck and the salmon we ordered was...More

A short drive from Albany and well worth it. Fine view of the Hudson from the deck. Friendly and competent service. Interesting basic menus.

Our server was a friendly and cute. The view is beautiful. The bartenders are rude and slow and ignore the customers. Menu is limited and most of the food ordered was mediocre. Over $20 for Pasta dishes. Oreganato sauce on the minuscule clams is delicious.More

Mr. Donovan. Thank you for your response to my review. First, I seldom dine in downtown Chicago. Second, we dined at your restaurant with a local couple, and they did in fact complain about the meal. The management response was that we were "causing trouble". We were there on July 28. While I appreciate your concern, in seems to have a slightly hollow ring to it.
