Customer Reviews for My Favorite Taverns

Bentley’s Tavern

Great spot, great food, great service.  – Chris Baptie

Neighborhood pub working hard to be a hangout and home away from home. Great pub food, fast service, TVs everywhere. Enjoyed Texas BBQ burger and bean and corn salad, very fresh and well prepared. Recommend for fun, informal night out with friends.  – G3G, Poughkeepsie

The venue is very enticing from the exterior and warm and friendly in the interior. Prices are reasonable and the service was top-notch! – Judy, Troy

Had dinner here a few times recently during visits to nearby Saratoga Springs. Very nice sports bar and restaurant. The service was excellent, the beer on tap was cold and fresh, and the food was even better than expected. Hamburgers, salads, and the brownie sundae are superb. Plus, the place is very clean, doesn’t have the smell of stale beer like some joints do, and has a nice spacious and welcoming feel to it.   – Vbon, Albany

I have eaten here many times and the food is always good. Nice place to also have a drink and listen to music. I also utilized the side room for a wedding shower, and the space, the people who work there and the food were great. I would definitely recommend and would go back to Bentley’s again.   – Chamberlane, Round Lake

Been there with a few friends for some beer and fun and had a real great time. Good food and beer. The place was full of other people having a great time which created a great atmosphere all over. I’ll be back for more.   – Kim3l, Israel

Everything is great. Amazing food and appetizers. Most of all the service. – Centurian Gaming with Friends

I go here on a regular basis and they always have great specials. – Jonathan E, Ballston Lake

Great food, not your typical bar food. The Bentley burger and the chicken wings are to me a great specialty. Many drink selections to choose from. The waitstaff is very attentive and you do not wait for your food. Outside seating is available too. Plenty of TVs to watch your favorite team. Some nights they have live music.  -Bill S, Ballston Lake

We dined at Bentley’s with 16 of our closest friends. The service was impeccable. Scott, our waiter, was on top of everything considering he was dealing with such a large crowd. The menu had great variety and the food was delicious. Good-sized portions so I was able to take the rest home for lunch the next day. Overall it was a wonderful experience and would definitely dine there again. – Mpellet64, Ballston Spa

If you like to sit and enjoy tasty pub fare, enjoy a drink and watch sports on TV, this is a good place to do it! TVs are EVERYWHERE you look, but they aren’t blaring sound, so you can enjoy a conversation and keep an eye on your favorite sporting event. My husband and I were there on a very cold night and sitting by the fireplace was nice. We both had yummy patty-melt burgers. There are quite a few good sides to choose from to go with your sandwich. The service was good and friendly. Good value place. I’d recommend it.  – Patricia B, Ballston Spa

I absolutely love this place. Warm atmosphere, great food. Harvest quesadilla is amazing. I’d return when in the area!   – Julia S, Saint Augustine, Florida

This is a great unassuming spot just off the highway. I must be getting closer to Buffalo because the wings were that good. Service was attentive and it clearly was a team effort. Worth stopping in. Go to the right as you enter and sit by the fireplace.  – SailingThistle T, San Francisco

Nice tavern with indoor and outdoor seating. The apps are great with big portions. The Buffalo chicken, potato skins and mozzarella sticks are great. The burgers are cooked as requested and are big and juicy. We will be back.   – VPfrom LongIsland

Bentley’s is pretty much the original Malta tavern. Since the day it opened its doors the service and food were always top notch. The place is outstanding with a very friendly professional staff. The service is always prompt and the food is never off. They have a nice diversified menu with plenty to choose from and the prices are very reasonable. I think they invented the Buffalo chicken salad but if they didn’t they perfected it. Stop in and I am sure you will not be disappointed.   – John B, Malta

The Mill on Round Lake

You can tell this is a lively spot. They are well known for their wings and burgers. Service is quick and very efficient. A must see if you’re in the area. – Mski110, Cohoes

A perfect summer night with a light meal at The Mill. Their outdoor patio is just right. They never disappoint! – Peg N

Whether you are stopping after work or on your way home from SPAC or Saratoga Race Course, this is a great place to unwind and enjoy friends. This place is for all who want to have a good time and enjoy each other’s company. – Bill S, Ballston Lake

One of the more enjoyable spots to relax with a beer & burger. Clean, efficient, great crowd and service to match. Fills up fast so get there early! – Nick M, Clifton Park

The Mill is an awesome local bar that appeals to everyone from Harley enthusiasts to BMW owners alike. The patio is fantastic. Their wings are some of the best in the Capital District. – y498yates, Round Lake

Great place to meet friends. Really nice outdoor decks. Great location near lake, biking and walking trail. – Cebgel, Glens Falls

In town on business, my crew and I have come to The Mill four times. Each time the staff made us feel at home. The food was fresh and well prepared. From the look of the outdoor area, I imagine dinner over some sports events would be great here. Five stars! – Thekeithman, Walton Beach, Florida

I do love the atmosphere in all of Wayne`s pubs (Bentleys, The Rusty Nail and The Mill). You can expect great service and decent food. He runs a very professional business and is consistent in quality and atmosphere at every establishment. The food is from bar food to mid-level dining with great menus and the staff is always friendly and attentive. The patio is the best anywhere in the region, plenty of seating, atmosphere and ambience. If you are out and about with friends or on a nice date with someone special I really do suggest an evening on the patio. – John B, Malta

Great food, friendly staff, brilliant atmosphere, excellent live music. All in all, a great place to go. – MRT502

This place is a great spot to meet friends for a beer or to listen to music. The set up is especially great for the summer with outdoor bars, fountains, fantastic construction and lots of friendly locals celebrating. – Donna M, Malta

Just love coming here and enjoying a quick relaxing bite to eat outside. Enjoy mostly everything on the menu, wait staff is friendly and the interior is rustic, warm and inviting. – Denise D, Ballston Spa

Came on a whim while driving through town. We had the kids with us so the outdoor patio was a plus. We had the Irish Nachos and Shrimp Skewers both of which were amazing! The kids split a grilled cheese which was humongous! We gave it five stars for ambiance as well as what they have to offer. We wish we had a place like this near us! – Kristy A, Las Vegas

The Mill is the place to be on a summer day. Between the awesome service, yummy food, great selection of beer, fantastic venue with live entertainment, you literally cannot find a place in the Capital District that has all The Mill has to offer. I have been there several times and don’t have a single bad thing to say about my experiences. I’ve attended a few parties in the pavilion there, as well. Bridal/baby showers, engagement parties, birthday parties, etc. The food is always delicious and the wait staff is always so attentive, knowledgeable and polite. It is such a great atmosphere and you’re guaranteed to have an awesome time! – Lynn A, Saratoga

Always really good food here and the dude behind the bar knows his mixed drinks. Martinis and Manhattans are always better than most. They never fail to offer a few unique and a few seasonal beers on tap at consistently reasonable prices. Would recommend. – Leeroy J, Saratoga

I love The Mill. I come here every Sunday in the summer. The wings can’t be beat and the ice cold pale ale on tap is perfect. I’m a regular. The team wait service is great and even if it is packed you get your food hot and fast. – John V, Schenectady

We stopped here on a whim one day after a long afternoon of canoeing on Round Lake. Now we’re making it a tradition whenever we’re near. It’s a great location with tons of parking and seating, a great variety of indoor and outdoor spaces, good food, good prices, wide drink selection, and great service. On a nice summer day, it doesn’t get much better if you want to sit outside and have a beer, and maybe munch on some food. For those that are interested, they also have a pool table and electronic dart board in a little game area. Yeah, great place! – Richard O

Fun busy atmosphere! Very beautiful decor, hardworking staff. Can’t go wrong. – Alan Nudi

In my opinion, this is hands-down one of the best places you can go for the best food and entertainment. Love it!!! – James Kennedy

I had the pleasure of hosting a party on Saturday, April 30, 2016, in the outside bar at The Mill. I have to tell you that the entire experience was such a pleasure. Angela made it so easy and was so accommodating and helpful. The bartenders were friendly and efficient. Tim was also very helpful, what a nice guy! Everyone liked the food and the atmosphere was just perfect. I’m so grateful that my friend’s day was so special and memorable. I will absolutely recommend The Mill as a great place to host parties to my friends and family! – Patti S

The Rusty Nail

The Cheers of Clifton Park: Friendly crowd, fresh food and fun. – STEBAY711, Albany, NY

I went here with my dad who was 92. He received 92 free wings on his birthday. They were wonderful. The staff was great. We returned for the burgers and they were delicious. It was a wonderful surprise to find this gem.  – Blyle, Texas

Best Spot in Clifton Park! I know there are a lot of options but I always end up at The Rusty Nail. I recently went for a birthday party and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Food came out fast and hot, we didn’t have to wait for drinks to be refilled and the all-around atmosphere was just fantastic. Whether in a large group or going in for lunch alone, this is the place to go.  – Joe G., Mechanicville, NY

The restaurant has a birthday promo which gives free buffalo wings, in the amount of the birthday years, to any individual or group. We were invited to such a party. We had never visited this place and were delighted to participate. The deal was exactly as promised and the food was excellent. The wings, many varieties, both hot and for cowards, were as good as any I had ever tasted. We will be back soon and often.  – Fred N., Ballston Lake, NY

The wings at The Rusty Nail will not disappoint! We are from the Buffalo area and compare many of our wing eating occasions to The Anchor Bar wings. Rusty Nail’s wings certainly have the quality, taste and crispiness.  – Julie L., Clifton Park, NY

Stopped on a Sunday afternoon and were seated immediately. Service was prompt. All orders prepared correctly and all in group were happy! Reuben was yum, as were wings, veggie burger, pulled pork sandwich, apps, chicken tenders. Good draft beer and drink selections. All around happy experience! Pleased group of 7, from 2 years old to 70!  – Guingriz, Longmeadow, MA

Number 1 Local Place to Try. I have family visit from out of town frequently and this is always my first choice to take them for a great experience at a non-chain restaurant. – Jessica K., Mechanicville, NY

Don’t miss an opportunity to eat here! Great food, efficient and polite service in a great, friendly atmosphere! I will definitely go back!   – Denise S., Colonie

One of the nicest places in the area, hands down! Always friendly, welcoming and a pleasure to visit. The bartenders and management go out of their way to introduce themselves and are always a pleasure to deal with. The mug club they offer is a deal without comparison.   – Bootydo5a

If you’re looking for a place to go and unwind with friends, you’ve found it. Great food, great beer and you are surrounded by flat screens for whatever sport you’re into. Couldn’t ask for a better staff.   – Retired630, Waterford
