My husband and I were searching for lunch before heading out of town on a Sunday and found Wolff's. It was a winter-time visit so doors were closed but place has a good atmosphere..low key but fun. Nice selection of beer and food. Their brunch included 2 sausages, eggs, and potato pancakes. ALL delicious.

A fun German inspired eating and drinking establishment in Albany NY! We stopped in for some German food and beer on our way to Maine. The place was packed on a weeknight! The atmosphere is fun in typical German biergarten style with long tavern tables, peanut shell covered floors and live accordion and clarinet oompah music. Tons of fun to... More

We went there for some good German schnitzel, which they had two weeks ago, and found the menu changed and it was off. Now it is like any other bar-boring! I would not go again and we were all very disappointed.

Really enjoyed all aspects of our Saturday early dinner visit, a week before college crowd descends. Bartenders were friendly and helpful with their recommendations to non-beer aficionado me. I took their advice and wasn't disappointed with the Belgian beer I tried. Meal was very good- tender veal schnitzel, right amount of breading and sauce, though spätzle seemed a bit salty.... More

They have a good selection of beers to choose from. They also have $5 pickle chasers which was new to me - you drink a shot of whatever and chase it with some pickle juice! delicious! the German food is good and hearty. I usually like the schnitzels. Will try the currywurst next time.

Fun place. Unexpected good food. You got to try the fried pickles and make sure you go on your birthday to get your free one liter boot of beer!

Wide range of beers. Beers were cold! Fun atmosphere and friendly wait staff. On birthdays the bar serves a free boot of beer to the adult celebrating!

Wolff's has excellent draft beer, German and Belgium. The Albany location also has a fair menu- have tried several items and not disappointed. The Schenectady location also has the excellent beer but a much more limited menu.

First off they must have moved since last photos shown here were taken. They are now on Franklin St. See photos below. In any case great rustic German beer garden feel. Tons of German and Belgium beers to choose from. Even diffent sizes of beer glasses depending on how thirsty you are. Shelled peanuts included and they serve a small... More

First time here and I really enjoyed how the inside looks like you are outside. On the night I came here it was overly busy. Hard to get beers, elbow room and very loud. Seems as though this is a place for 21-25 year olds. Lots of college kids. It would of been nicer if it wasn't just for a... More
