Chris’s Short Take: McAddy’s Pub
Back in the ‘80s, and even into the ‘90s, McAddy’s was known as Holmes and Watson, home of the “Around the World” Beer Tour where patrons received a T-shirt and certificate for quaffing beer and ales from around the globe while live acoustic music filled the backroom with RPI students, local characters, and the occasional movie star. It became a thread of the social fabric that began Troy’s renaissance.
Today it is McAddy’s Pub, and it’s thriving in the same great setting.
The ancient walnut back bar looks great after decades of hearty use. They have expanded into the upstairs, which was formerly apartments back in the day.
The outdoor patio in the back completes the seating options.
The menu is classic pub fare and a good target for a weekend or business lunch. Brunch is served on Sundays from 10 AM to 2 PM.
