We always make it a point to stop at W.T.'s or the Gingerman when visiting the Albany area. The staff and food is always great at both places. Not easy to do for 20 + years. The Gingerman stuffed mushrooms are the BEST we've had in our

I've only been here once but it's pretty good. The food is delish and not TOO over-priced. I love that it's within walking distance, both from SUNY downtown campus and my apartment.

The crowds use to be good here, now it has died. They tried putting money into and making it look nicer. Still no one goes. Drinks are expensive for the area, the food has gone down hill over the years. Head downtown for a thriving mix of clubs and bars.

Pros: Bartenders know what their doing, Over 21

Cons: Parking, Prices, Food, TV's

Best bar in the Albany area. It offers a late night scene that far exceeds any of the other Pine Hills stops. For the afterwork crowd the happy hour is amazing - my favorite with a pint is the either the hot chicken wings or french fries, you have get the horseradish sauce with the fries, the best. The LI Ice Teas, Bloody Marys, and mixed drinks served by Albany's finest bartenders - Mr. Harris (Mark to some) Sean, and Al (daytime & happy hours). Don't forget - St. Patricks day or the Saturday before St. Patricks day (free cornbeef & cabbage all day) - if you can't be either in Boston, NYC, or Chicago for St. Patricks there is no better in the US then at the T's being served by Sligo's favorvite son - Mike Byron.

Pros: Bartenders, Atmosphere, Patrons

Hanging with the fraternities was something I did in my undergraduate years, so to come to WT's and do it again was definitely not my style. The music was loud so you had to lean over and talk to one another, otherwise you couldn't hear what they were saying. They did have a great deal on Coors Light, so that was a bonus, but otherwise...not for me.

Where oh where did this "the Irish like warm beer" myth begin? The WT is a fun bar but no Irishman would drink the Guinness there....it isn't poured properly for starters...but then that's true almost everywhere in the state's. And it's never as cold as you'll find it in Sligo!
