A surprising find while exploring downtown Plattsburgh. Very welcoming staff who helped us select some local beers to try. Great tasting pub food; we enjoyed a large plate of fish and chips (sweet potato fries) and flavourful pork wraps and fries. We sat near the bar in front of the fire place and enjoyed our lunch. Spotted a pool table... More

Very nice atmosphere and much larger than I expected. We had pasta, salad, and appetizers. Nice place to go with friends for drinks and a bite to eat. Spacious parking lot. Would recommend and will return on our next trip to Plattsburgh.

Wanted to find a place on our quest to find the best poutine and Olive's fit the bill, and get a quick bit in the late afternoon. Though my spouse thought there too much gravy, and I had to agree. A little less gravy and make sure the temp is a little warmer when served would be my suggestion. The... More

Boring food in a town of boring tastes with nowhere to go! Bar and average to poor food. They have evening events. But it does not change the fact it is local not doing good...just making money.

We visit this spot often, usually for live music but eat once and a while. The current menu is "pub fare" which includes wings, pizza and burgers. The wings were huge! I would say the biggest wings I have ever had! Sauce was good and the blue cheese made it better. The pizza is a thin, flatbread style and not... More

I enjoy dining here with my family and friends. I truly appreciate that the staff keeps the lower class patrons out of the restaurant so that it is safe for all to enjoy. The food is delicous, the prices fair and reasonable, the staff friendly and courteous and the atmosphere relaxed.

Can't beat Ridley's for a beer or two at the end of the week. Great sandwiches as well. Can also catch some good bands on the weekend.

Really nice pub setting & feel, and had a great bartender this Wednesday early in October, first time here & he did a nice job taking time to make the experience welcoming. Also, good food! Very good Caesar Salad & excellent flat bread (uhhh, thin crust high-temp pizza. Yeah). Flat bread needed a bit more fire, dough somewhat under-cooked, though... More

Throughout the week, there are different specials different nights. I particularly like the burger and a brew on Tuesday nights, but Monday night wings are great too. We just finished off a couple of the best burgers in town and washed them down with some cold pints of craft brewed beer. Although the price of the burger and brew went... More

I'm a regular here. It's a very good bar. Environment is always comfortable and lively. Staff is great and the events they always have going on are enjoyable. Absolutely love it.
