Establishment: Malt River Brewing Company, Latham, NY

Wow what a dissapointment on so many levels. This is a big bloated brewpub left over from the Micro brew explosion in the 1990's. Of course now it no longer brews beer, although it has a fairly good selection of drafts. The main (and fatal) problem is with the food and service. I find it hard to think of a worse meal. We ordered the jumbalya, which was a pasty mushy mess. All fire, no spices. There were two shrimps in my rice-heavy bowl- mainly some kind of awful ketchup-based saucy rice. Ugh. Others in my party suffered through a Mahi Mahi that was non descript. We also orderd their famous Thai chicken wings which were a soggy, bland mess. Our meals came with salads which would not have been half bad if they had bothered to WASH the lettuce! Each mouthful contained a crunchy ear shattering amount of dirt. I hate to keep going, but there was so much so bad. We ordered the hot artichoke dip, normally a tried and true favorite which i would not believe you could mess up, but this place managed to do it. It was soggy, watery and luke warm. We sent some things back, but no one came to apologize or offer any compensation. You can definitely tell the management and owners have given up and are waiting to close. I would stear clear of this place and hit many of the much better pubs to get your draft beer. A few within a short drive: McGeary's in Albany, Mahar's in Albany and the superb "Parting Glass" in Saratoga. They all have at least as a good a beer selection and much much much better food.
