Shared the Gastroburger with my husband - it was huge and really good. One of the best. The beer selection was great and this place is worth finding. So glad our friends took us there. The portions are huge. The Poutine was wonderful along with the Runners - so flavorful.

Great friendly service. We had to wait a short time for a table and they brought us coffee while we waited. We had eggs Benedict and short rib hash. Both were amazing.

Everything here is great, to be honest. It is a small menu, but you will be happy with anything you order. The downsize is that it is small, so depending on when you come, you may have quite a wait. Pictured is the mushroom/black bean burger with aged cheddar & a margarita!

We came here on New Years Eve while visiting family in Albany and had a good time. There were three of us and we ordered interesting drinks, appetizers that were tasty but VERY small for the money. We decided to go back in June and had a bad experience. Warm beer and barely there food, although my husband got the Gastro Burger which was tremendous. It made up for the 10, yes 10 gnocchi with pesto and three small shrimp that I ordered. It was the special and coming from NYC, I'm expecting something substantial. Maybe something extra to take home. WRONG. Honestly, I can't be bothered complaining. It's useless and ruins the night. I ate it...it tasted good, although the shrimp did not. They had a bleach taste. The bill was outrageous so I can assure you when I visit the city again, we won't be back. It's a bummer because it's a cool little joint.

This is exactly what a gastropub is...many different beers,wines and liquors with small plates of tasty food. The atmosphere is charming industrial chic. The staff is congenial and the owner is gracious. There was a nice mixed crowd of hipsters and families. The menu also has a selection of burgers and pizzas. All ingredients were very fresh and thoughtfully put together. Dates stuffed with blu cheese and wrapped in bacon $9 and fried oysters $12 were both excellent. Burger and fries were good $15 but too salty. The noise can get loud and the seating is tight and not especially comfortable. We would return because the welcoming vibe ,knowledgeable staff and the interesting menu.
