Finally made it to this place though I've lived less than an hour away for a couple years now. Great old building smack-dab in the middle of a historic downtown area of Glens Falls. Food was hit-and-miss. (i.e. the buffalo chicken soup was stellar, whereas the nachos were less than impresisve) However, they do have fried pickles which this is the first brew pub on this coast that I've seen them on the menu. Yea!

Their beer selection is pretty good. They have their year-round selection- pale, brown, etc., but also throw in some saucy brews such as a Scotch ale.

If in the area, I'll be stopping by here again.

I had high hopes for this one. The atmosphere is great, the food was good, the beer was nothing special but some of their stuff was alright. Unfortunately, the service was horrendous I really hope it was just our waitress but she was miserable

Next to Blue Monk and CH Evans, one of the pioneers with a great location and atmosphere.

Good beer selection, decent food - great deep fried pickles. I have had terrible front end service each time I have eaten there...

Been revisiting Davidson's from time to time in hopes that i might not be disappointed. I'm really not one to send a beer back to the bar but had to with their scottish ale. At least the batch i got was undrinkable. I am mostly an IPA drinker (with a broad range of appreciation) and have only had mediocre at best from these guys. I was also very disappointed to learn that they don't even brew their own beer on location. It is shipped down from Maine.

If you do end up here be sure to get the beer battered onion rings !
Here's to hoping their beer will one day match their quaint location.

A restaurant and brewery with better food than beer, really. The beer is all serviceable, some very tasty (the scotch ale and oatmeal stout, especially) but some really watery, kinda poor beer (the smoked porter was gross). The food however, is delicious, and the space in Glens Falls is beautiful. The owner, Rick Davidson, is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, and is constantly walking around and asking customers what they think of everything. The rest of the staff is similarly nice. Worth a stop if you're in the area, but not worth a big drive just for the beer alone.
