I love it there!!!!!!!!!! Haven't been in a couple months but it is our go to spot for all things special! Try the lobster ravioli!
Across the board, outstanding. It was a nice quite place to have lunch, the wrap I had was delicious, and the waitress was attentive without being pushy. It is a little pricey, but the quality of the food was certainly worth it This is my new favorite place to eat.
I have been to CF many times before. I do have to say that it is not what it used to be.When we were seated, our silverware was dirty, it took 20 minutes to place an order for drinks, which then took another 10 minutes to be brought out, then almost 10 more minutes just to get straws. After another 15 minutes the waitress took our order. They were out of many of the appetizers. The meals that were ordered came to the table either burnt or extremely greasy. The pasta dish had almost no sauce in it, and the noodles were hard. I usually like al dente pasta, but this pasta seemed as though it was barely cooked at all. It tasted like a bowl of extremely undercooked pasta loaded with only butter and broccoli. I returned my meal. I was extremely disappointed with the food AND the service this visit. The manager at the Albany Ny location is extremely rude, and does not handle his dissatisfied customers well at all. I would NOT recommend Cheesecake Factory to anyone anymore.
Love this diner! Never had to wait to be seated, and never disappointed by any food chosen from their vast menu! A definite favorite for family and friends!
we were sitting in a traffic jam for about an hour when my wife and I dediced to just find a place to sit and drink just waiting it out. no more than 5 min pass and we are in the parking lot with a few of their regular drunks that wanted to yell. and call the cops because we had empty rabbit cages strapped to the van. saying the empty cages were animal abuse. we had to wait on the cops to show up before leaving.
dont waste your money. food, terrible! dont get the fish tacos or smores chesscake!
This place is a good little hidden treasure for a sandwich. Prices are insanely good too and the selection is vast. The atmosphere is great and the outdoor patio area is super classy. The inside is small in the front, but the back dining area is larger than you would think and quaint. They love Elvis too, almost shrine-like! I have nothing but good things to say about this place other than the battle for a parking spot during the lunch hour. If you are within walking distance, you have to try it, you will be suprised at this gem stuck in the heart of a busy albany area. Almost feels like your eating in a park, yet your in downtown albany! FYI, I think it is a breakfast and lunch place only for those dinner seekers.
Good Atmosphere, great food with homeade pizza, burgers, wraps and more that will keep you coming back! Definately a good stop for grabbing some food and a beer with friends. Prices are good and theres always consistent above-par food with some of the best moonshine wings ever. Not a place to bring the kids after 5 or so... as it gets kind of a "barish" crowd, but lunch is always a safe bet. REALLY GOOD STUFF PEOPLE!
I have been going to Grandma's for years, anytime I come up to Albany I HAVE to stop by. The food is great, the service fast and very friendly. I love the fact that at every holiday they deck the restaurant out to the max without making it look tacky. And you have to try their pies they are to die for!! The atmosphere makes you feel like your coming home. A++
Food is good for the money, above the bar for bar food. Atmosphere is pretty good too. The layout is a little funny, but is doable. All in all, fair prices good food and a good time.
