The brewpub was located downtown Glens Falls, NY in an old style building with a nice window store front look peeking in on the brewing equipment. The pub itself was pretty basic of most brewpubs that I've visited. There was a decent sized bar area with quite a few taps of the house brews along with open seating at tables throughout that were spread out nicely from each other. The beer was pretty good also. I had their stout and ipa. The atmosphere was nice; not a lot of people there, but enough to keep the place profitable. I went early in the week around lunch time. The menu was better than average. Of course, they had the beer sampler, which I decided not to do. The appetizers were the usual, wings, quesedilla, etc. except for a delicious chedder stout soup. I ordered that and a plate of their boneless battered winglets. They served them in three styles mild, hot, and black death. I chose the black death and payed the price for it. They were quite tasty, but felt like I had consumed a small bottle of Drano. Anyway, this was a fine establishment with courtious servers and a good menu; not to mention the wide array of good house beers. The only bad thing. You couldn't buy bottled beer to go.

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.

Great atmosphere. I'm working on a project in the area and decided to stop in and grab a bite and some brew. I've had the fish tacos, beer cheese soup, and the calamari appetizer. All good so far, but calamari a was a little soggy. Now onto the brew; Oatmeal stout is very good; I've been back to fill the growlers five times so far. Also enjoy their coffee stout, had a growler fill on that. Rick Davidson, owner, is always out and about greeting customers and adding to the great atmosphere. Will be back!
