You get college bar atmosphere, family-friendly food and prompt service at Albany's favorite build-your-own burger joint. – The Scene
Sutter's was a premier college bar back when 18-year-olds could drink alcohol, and that atmosphere has survived. The front room is more staid than in those days, but Lottery cards are available tableside, so customers can play while they wait. The front dining area is self-service. For those seeking family fare, there's a bright dining room in the rear overlooking the summer-dining deck. Service is prompt and courteous.
Big, juicy burgers are the favorite. Build a steerburger with cheese, onions, Canadian bacon--you name it. The wings are outstanding, but vegetarians can find something tasty, too. At lunch, nibble on side dishes while waiting for your burger; rotating choices include chili and hot potato salad, but coleslaw and pickles are always available. Check the dinner-special menu for surprise entrees like sauerbraten.
GREAT FOOD – Tavern menu. Outside dining on deck. Parking is a little tough in primary lot. Other parking available. Food is great.
Has not stayed consistent – I used to long for their burgers, once but alas they have let there standards down. They now serve a preformed burger no longer big and juicy! Alas another disappointment.
