We arrived for our fourth time here on the ever popular $5 Wednesday burger night. As usual, we enjoyed the burger and fries and the pleasant, busy atmosphere. It's a nice deal that has caught on locally, and we have tried to support Schenectady restaurants as much as we can. I do enjoy the food, atmosphere and service with the... More

The Manhattan Exchange is conveniently located on lower Union Street with easy access from downtown or uptown and has their own on location parking. The bartender and waitress are both pleasant and recognise frequent patrons.There are always stories to overhear and a friendly atmosphere prevails.The... More

Manhattan Exchange offers all of the burgers on their menu for just $5 on Wednesdays. The service is efficient and friendly and the fries are included. Add a beer and you have a great dinner out.

Started out on the patio on a beautiful afternoon but the bees came out. Our server gladly brought our food inside and seated us upstairs. I had the boneless chicken wings and they were very good. The others had salads that were huge. More than enough food to enjoy for dinner. I would definitely return.

Good food, beautiful patio. I went for an after work dinner. We sat outside on the patio. We had the option of the pub menu or the price fixed menu. Most of us got the price fixed menu. One friend was a vegetarian, and there were little options for her. Wine glasses were filled to the top. Entrees were huge.... More

Cozy bar downstairs but too small for us to squeeze into. Took the stairs up to the second level and were the only couple there at 7 o'clock on a Friday evening. The chili was just okay, the service was accomadating, and the pace was good.

Had a work luncheon here for 36 people. The food was very good...no nonsense Italian. Tender chicken, good meatballs, and excellent eggplant Parm. The service was fine and attentive. I would def recommend this place for a small event, up to 40. The outdoor patio was open and would have been a great place to eat on this fine, sunny... More

Good food. Good sized potions for the price. Interior recently redone. It's upscale casual. Bewsre, dining room on the second floor and there is only a set of stairs! But if you can walk up the stairs you will be happy with atmosphere and the food. We had an app, large and good Chicken Cordon Blu and the steak sandwich.... More

We had dinner here with my wife's sister and her husband; great decision. The pre- fix meals for $20.14 is unbelievable! The steak was worth more than that, it is one of the largest and best sirloins I have ever seen served in a restaurant anywhere. That was a $35.00 meal, I don't know how they do it. Everything on...
