This is a restaurant with a pretty much standard pub menu. Food was good service better and the atmosphere better yet. In an old (18th century) house with lots of old looking wood.

We had a last minute large party reservation and the staff was great. The wait staff was very helpful and anticipated our needs. Great food and a warm environment.

The Van Dyke is an excellent gathering place for drinks and dinner. They brew Mad Jack beer and have an extensive bar. The menu has a small variety of tasty dishes with good-sized portions. The servers are friendly and attentive. There is plenty of room for sport viewing, and there is a great variety of live music in the lounge.

Stopped in for a relaxing bite and drink with my bride. Great service, food and brew as usual. The beer is brewed on the premises and there are always a dozen to choose from. The menu has appetizers to pub grub to pizza to full course entries...You can't go wrong

I was in town for a 2 day conference and stopped in for dinner and drinks. We had about twenty of us and were seated in a back room type area. Through the typical chaos of a large group our waiter Todd was a gem. Our food came hot, tasty, and on time. The menu is more than adequate from... More

We went to grab lunch before a wedding. About 8 of us walked into the bar and asked for food to go! Billy the bar tender was more then accommodating. Everything was ordered to go and the food was great, but we were not given or offered any condiments or silverware. Drinks were good and reasonably priced!

Service is quick and welcoming at this local Schenectady establishment. Nestled in the historic district and taking advantage of the ambiance of years past, the food and drink offered is extensive and yummy. The local beers on tap are highly recommended. Outdoor seating is available, enjoyable and private. This is a well-run, perfect place to relax and enjoy a good... More

We have friends who stop here whenever they are in town. For us, it was an average place, no real complaints but did not see anything worth a return visit.
