Ginger Man is at the top of Greenwich Ave, almost to the intersection of the Old Post Road (Route 1). It is a pub style restaurant, w/ a long bar when you enter, 2 floors (although I've never seen anyone upstairs), a fireplace in the rear of the place which is cozy during winter nights. This is a chain bar - there is one in NYC and Norwalk, CT that I know of. Both are good.There are lots of beers on tap. Many seasonal beer offerings. The menu has the typical chicken wings and burgers (both good) but also some unusual dishes that are worth trying: the salmon BLT is really good, plus the Buttermilk fried chicken sandwich.There are locals who sit at the bar during the afternoon & you can read all the NYC papers while sipping a beer and munching on wings. Also, you'll see business peeps from around the area here especially for lunch. Also great for kids & family: the staff handles all of these groups well.

Maggie's is a great place to enjoy a game or even just eat casually. They have a new website at http://maggiescafealbany.com/, too.
One of the best hotels in Albany...I would say the BEST hotel. I stayed for several days in the J Suite. It was fantastic. Great room, with a fire place, huge bathroom and the bed and decor was comfortable. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. The location is in the heart of Downtown Albany, making it very convenient. Parking is easy, but you have to get valet.
Second time eating here and very happy with the food. Have had the duck sandwich and the fish tacos as well as the duck drummers. All were great!! I am definitely going to be coming here often!! Highly recommended. Love the fries and the dipping sauces. Patio seating available now that the weather is warmer.
Had a great Hollow Burger and beer with a large group. One of the servers really went out of their way to help our party of 7 settle in to a new table when we realized a band was about to start playing. Will definitely be back - a lot!
Reserved a table before Springsteen concert. Bar tenders were slow and unfriendly. Took 25 minutes to get seated and get menus. Waitress did best she could but they were very understaffed. Nearby patrons all had same experience. Took 2 hours to get out, made concert just in time.
