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.
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!
Went here with a few coworkers. I heard good things about this place, however I wished I didn't waste my money. I ordered the chicken parm because my thought is who can mess that up? Lets just say nothing about this dish was appetizing. The chicken was dry, the sauce tasted like hunts or something you'd get in the store. I think I ate 3 bites of it. When it came to check out I let the waitress know. She brought it back to the kitchen and they refused to give any discount. A complete waste of money. I ended up going to wendys because I was still hungry. I will never go back to this place. Every time friends want to go here I pass and suggest TJ's down the street or one of the restaurants on wolf rd. Don't bother wasting your time and money to this place...
Enjoy Lark Street but do not go to Lark Tavern. Not only are they overpriced, but their food was (to put it nicely) disappointing. The beer tasted odd... as if the cups had been "cleaned" in dirty water. The bathrooms were disgusting. Only one stall actually worked (and apparently it is BYOToiletpaper) The stall wall also had a light smattering of what appeared to be boogers. The clientele is a lovely misture of creepy old men and creepy older men, and the best part of this lovely gem was that as we were patronizing this establishment the owner called and had our car towed from their parking lot. When we asked for information about where we were towed he said, "I'll get that for you." He then walked into the kitchen and hid out there for the next hour without providing the information. I suppose I shouldn't be suprised at this considering what I've read about how the current owners essentially hijacked the space from the previous owner after a fire. So then I had to go to the worst neighborhood in Albany and pay $165 to get my car back from the junkyard where it was towed. The towtruck driver, who left big grease handprints on the interior of my Audi told me that Ryan, the Lark Tavern owner tows his customers all the time. I suspect he is cahoots with them. Afterall, I did spend more getting my car back than I spent on food and drinks. Perhaps Ryan should pay better attention the the cleanliness of his establishment and poor quality of his product than who he can tow.
