Came here for the first time and discovered another local gem. The building itself has a varied and historic past that is being put to good use. It has a nice patio area also. The restaurant is old brick with exposed pipes and it has a homey feel. It has a nice craft beer list and bar area. The restaurant... More

I wish I had taken pictures. There's a visible layer of dust throughout the entire place...shelves, pictures, sports memorabilia and tvs. It's filthy. Aside from the filth, we were sat immediately on Mothers Day. Our server was pleasant but we did have to ask for a draft list. To my disgust, the draft list was filthy, sticky and stained. But...

It's a comfortable place, TVs for sports shows, but not in your face. Food is varied, pub food to burgers to pasta dishes, to prime rib and seafood. Huge portions, tasty food. Nice people, friendly staff. Not the cheapest place, but not overly expensive either.

The food is very good and the portion are big. I had the Home made Mac and Cheese with Crispy buffalo Chicken on top. I was enough for 2 people. Service was very good. We went on a Friday night and got right in. We will go back..

If you're planning an outing at the factory, get the turkey dinner! It is home made, huge portion and plain delicious! Great burgers, and sandwiches as well - friendly wait staff, great ambiance, and fairly priced, will def go back.

My family eats here a couple times a month. The service and food are consistently great. They have a huge beer/cider selection. Always start with the nachos they can easily feed 5.

Although it's just off route 50, the Factory seems to get little attention amongst all of the restaurants in the area. The regulars clearly know good value when they see it. This was our second visit. We sat by the fireplace on a cold evening. The atmosphere is historic and great. Service was very good. The food is the star... More

We've now been to the Factory 5 or 6 times, mostly for dinner, and have been very pleased with the food, beer selections and friendly service. Last night we made last minute decision to go and had excellent meals again. I always get a cup of whatever the soup is because they are great. This time a delicious chicken florentine,... More

My friend and I were visiting Ballston Spa and were told to go to the 'Factory' for a burger. We stopped in to check out the menu and have a cold beer (sort of a Recon mission) and were very pleasantly surprised. The eatery is part of an old factory building that has been refurbished and filled with shops and... More
