Went to SUNY in the 80's and this place was great in its day. Best burgers in the world! I was in Albany for a conference this past weekend and was excited to have one of their burgers. I was shocked to see the whole...More

My coworkers and I used to visit Sutter's quite frequently, but recently the service has disappointed. Last time we visited they were out of most beers, and even when we were told they did have a beer, the waitress came back and stated they were...More

My wife and used to try to make it to Sutter's fairly often when their deck is open. Last year the quality started to slip and we went much less often. After today we won't ever go back. The service was poor and like the...More

Might just have the best burgers in the Capital District. We're on a quest to find it, and keep going back to Sutters. Haven't found a better one yet.

A special treat for us, former residents of the area, to go to Sutters and have chicken wings--the best around. The very good rating rather than excellent--because of the onion rings, which were average, and the salad, which was fresh and fine, but nothing out...More

The bar is okay, and is a fixture for the college, but the food is okay - pretty greasy and kind of scary when you see the kitchen, which you can see from the bar. It does have a decent deck in the back though.
