Reviews for Schmidt’s Pub

This spot is most definitely a hidden gem in Albany. All the way up Salano- you can pass it if you aren't paying close attention! Very cozy atmosphere with an eclectic feel - plenty of couches and tables to sit down, drink, play board games and make new friends. I thought they had a nice but small selection of beer (I'm not a big beer drinker but I was happy!) The bartender was nothing but welcoming. They have a variety of board games to play as well which was nice. full review
I love the atmosphere here. It is one of the only places around that I can go to have a cigar outside and really enjoy being outside late at night with friends. The interior design, hand-rolled cigarettes, fireplace, and overall ambiance make this a very special find. That being said, whoever the guy is that works behind the counter (~35, shaggy) inside is the biggest A-HOLE I have ever encountered. He's rude, condescending, impatient, and arrogant. Both times I've full review
Schmidt's Pub is an icon, a relic and/or an anarchronism. it's definitely one of a kind found only nearby a university campus- a combination beer pub and tobacco outlet in a laid back building that was formerly a domicile. offerings: beers, cigars/tobacco, coffee, wine -imperial pour (20 oz.) einstok toasted porter (iceland) (8) medium bodied, not as bold/flavorful as typical porters. on draught: -nice neighborhood bar, not a destination, parking issues. full review
