Thank you for choosing Albany Bistro! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience enough to share. The chocolate hazelnut creme brulee is always a guest favorite... it's hard to go wrong with anything that has Nutella! Thanks again for the kind words.

Read reviews, had to come to an engagement party, being from 60 miles away, thought we'd give it a shot. Food was good. Very loud, but everyone having fun. Quaint bar. Not a place for romantic dinner. Enjoyed

Very reasonable lunch prices. Ihighly recommend the fried green tomato BLT. Very fancy dinner. Fresh ingredients, changing menu, delicious everything. Desserts to die for. Get the shrimp and grits. Really, anything you get here is amazing.

Went there because I was craving fried chicken, and wanted a more upscale experience than popeye's. The place was more then I could have asked for. Full bar, gourmet eats, not ridiculously expensive. Will definitely be going back. And yes, I got my fried chicken...More

Love it! Not the normal Alabama menu. It's tucked away in a charming neighborhood with lots of history. Love it for selection of wine and food choices.
