Marcellas Pizza & Deli

Reviewed By NPSeaker

Recently we ordered take out pizza for my family. It is now my new favorite pizza place. The dough, sauce and cheese were perfect! Plus the price is good and they have a card that you can accumulate points on. With so many pizza places nearby, it is easy to get into a rut and order from the same place all the time. Marcellas was close to our family gathering, so we chose them. Now we will go there again. Everybody loved their pizza.

In 2009 the Van Dyck reopened under new owners, the McDonald Family, giving this historic venue new life. In 2011, the McDonald's again revitalized the Van Dyck by getting the formerly used brewery on premise functioning once more, under the name, the Mad

If you didn’t read this review or another recommendation for the Van Dyck Lounge, you would probably never find it; and you would be missing out. Located in a residential neighborhood, you might think you are at the wrong place. As soon as you walk in, you’ll see a welcoming bar and a relaxed atmosphere. We continued through the bar to the back patio where there was live music and plenty of seating. Beer is made in cooperation with Mad Jack Brewing. Beer selection from Mad Jack was your typical microbrew selection and tasted great. I ordered the fish and chips and for $15 I got a great tasting order that would be hard for two people to finish! Appetizers were great. Service was fast and attentive. Food came very quick. For a good dinner and a great beer in a relaxed atmosphere at a very unique location, you can’t go wrong.

Slick's Restaurant

Reviewed By ross5100

I ate lunch at this Schenectady institution today. It lived up to its reputation. This is the place to go if you want a sandwich as they have only sandwiches on the menu. I had the roastbeef. It was piled a mile high and was delicious. The potato salad was also very good. Service was friendly and efficient and prices were reasonable. A great place for a great sandwich.

Katie O'Byrnes Restaurant

Reviewed By Brian K

Went here for a pre show meal and the food was great, service was a bit slow and the place is noisy. Enjoyed the food. One time I went there for a beer while waiting for a delayed train as this location is right next to the train station. I enjoyed sitting at the bar and being less crowded at the time, the place was quieter.

Years ago we attended a High School reunion at the Turf Tavern, but returned recently for a rehearsal dinner for friends. The Buffet was top notch, including a carving station; pasta station, etc. The staff were courteous and professional and the atmosphere was very intimate and lovely.

Jumpin' Jack's Drive-in

Reviewed By PattyR63

It wouldn't feel like summer without visiting Jumpin' Jack's. The perfectly located landmark, has been a part of my life, since childhood. I love the Jackburger, which is a meal in itself, and the onion rings have been a favorite, for decades. They even have options for non meat eaters. The ice cream options have grown, over the years, as well.

We were in Schenectady, NY to see a matinee at Proctors Theater, so we parked in a nearby lot and walked to Ambition Bistro to enjoy some Brunch! Our server was polite and friendly, and our food was perfectly prepared and delicious. When in Schenectady, NY be sure to stop into Ambition Bistro for a great Breakfast Lunch or Dinner!

Druthers Brewing Company

Reviewed By Vespa717

Have been for lunch and dinner a few times now. The food has always been very good, and it's nice to be able to sit outside on the river. They're very popular, and busy especially on the weekends, but it's pleasant waiting at the bar for a table.
