Olde Shaker Inn 8/15/2010

I have been coming to Olde Shaker Inn since I moved here in 1990. I have always had delicious meals and great service. My only complaints are the ladies' room and the dirty carpeting. If they did a little cleaning up, this restaurant would be PERFECT. more

surprisingly great restaurant 11/14/2009

whenever we come upstate to visit family we eat at one or two classic local places. last visit we waited too long to get a reservation and so stumbled on the Olde Shaker Inn, a restaurant I remember as a kid growing up in Schenectady. My expectations were low, how could a restaurant this old and dowdy contain within it the secret of great food. big surprise. we all loved our meals. I had a shrimp appetizer that blew me away. My vegetarian daughter loved her meal, and my 95 year old mother loved hers. 3 Generations all happy. How often does that happen? Pros: excellent food Cons: could use a facelift more

Great Service, Home cooking at its best! 10/21/2009

Elegant atmosphere, just like being in the Shaker Museum but with great food. The wait staff was really friendly and the owner even greeted us a the door and took us to our table. Beats a chain restaurant any day. You can usually find coupons on the website that will save you on dinner. oldeshakerinn com Pros: Super nice service and friendly folks Cons: none:) more


I've been here 5 times with all different people and everyone was always very happy with the delicious food, great service and wonderful atmosphere. It is one of my most favorite restaurants in the Capital District. My only regret is not having found this restaurant sooner. Their cranberry walnut salad dressing is to die for! Daily special are not only delicious and fresh, like all their dinners are presented perfectly. Never been disappointed. People that had bad reviews here have to be miserable and want everyone to be, or new restaurant owners that don't like the big competition. This restaurant is supurb! Pros: Excellent food and service Cons: I haven't found any cons yets. more

Good For Gramma's Cooking!~ 4/4/2008

This is the kind of place you take your grandparents to: they will enjoy the homestyle type of cooking, the traditional decor and cozy fireplace. The prices are very fair and the service was friendly and fast. Overall I'm always satisfied whenever I stop by for their salmon with peach butter and wild grain rice and salad. more

Horrific experience 10/21/2007

We made reservations only to wait for 20 minutes for th staff to ""set our table"" We then went into the bar and were not served there for another 15 minutes. When we left, I called to speak to management. The guy, who refused to give his name, cursed & yelled at me and told me to go to a diner. After reading the reviews here, it seems to be a pattern. I contacted the Department of health to issue a complaint of the mold smell. This place needs new management, PERIOD. Pros: Can't think of ONE Cons: Way to many to describe more

Disappointment 8/30/2007

Disappointment, over priced, under-flavored, cold and if you are not happy with the food... Smells like Mold in the resturant. Pros: Close to my office - then again, I'll never go. Cons: Too many to list - moldy old restaurant with bad food. more

Bad management makes for bad brunch 3/11/2007

Just a few suggestions for the bitter, little man who ruined my Sunday brunch. Mr. Tom, owner of the Shaker Inn, this one's for you: Pros: it's better than eating garbage? Cons: too many to list more

Over-priced scrambled eggs with belligerence on the side. 3/11/2007

We had dinner here before- can't complain. Went for Sunday Brunch Buffet $17.99: incredibly disappointing. Not what was advertised. Reservations were required. Why? The restaurantwas practically empty! Of course they sat all four parties together in the corner. Our waiter was doing 5 jobs. Took over 10 minutes to get drinks. Where?s the buffet? As far away from us as you can get. 4 hot breakfast items: scrambled eggs, sausage, home fries, French toast. 4 hot lunch items: frozen lasagna, Swedish meatballs, salmon with cheez wiz, sauteed vegetables. Jarred fruit, store bought danish, bag salad- one dressing. Carving station: salty turkey, ham, or roast beef(?). Long wait for cold slivers of meat. Basket of store bought dinner rolls (leftovers from last nite?) Refills? came after done eating. Bill-$75.17 for 3 people! mimosas-not included ($15.75). Asked to see manager to express disappoinment. He appeared annoyed and belligerent from the start. We told him we ate many brunches (even in NYC) for less money, including drinks. He slammed a phone book down, challenged us to find another buffet with free drinks. He got violently angry, ?Why don?t you just pay your bill and agree never to do business together again!? he also told us to go to IHOP. We were dumbfounded. We asked his name. ?I don't need to give you my name.? !!!??? He finally said Tom. Last name? ?That?s all you need to know.? We paid our bill, told our server ?see Tom? for his tip and left never to return. We are looking forward to going to IHOP next Sunday! Pros: parking Cons: musak, not enough waitstaff, angry manager more

  • The Scene
    Old and new coexist gracefully here, where American-fusion cuisine is served in an old Shaker farmhouse. (Albany, don't forget, was once a hotbed of Shaker activity.)...
