Pearly's Famous Country Cooking

A must-try local Albany breakfast eatery! Very quick service, great food, always something new to try on their menu. Even though this place is always busy, they are always cleaning tables and preventing wait times. I recommend the biscuit breakfast sandwich!

This is an awesome place to eat! The owner has a helping hands ministry and has had mini houses for homeless built on property she purchased so they'd have a place to sleep. Also, they the best donuts ever!

Blackbeards

Reviewed By culbreth - Leesburg, Georgia

I ordered the 18oz Ribeye and my wife ordered the grilled butterfly shrimp. Everything was great. Our server Kendall was very attentive. One of the better places in Albany to get a steak in my opinion. The chain owned steak house restaurants in Albany have really been slacking lately. We had the shrimp and crab parmesian dip for our appetizer and it was delicious as well. I look forward to eating here more often.

Riverfront #2 BAR-B-Q and catfish house

Reviewed By Randall P - Albany

Went mid day on a Sunday afternoon. I ordered the pot roast special. Slow cooked in gravy with baby carrots and small chunks of potato. It had to be the absolute best pot roast Ive ever eaten at a restaurant. Indescribable.....everything was great. I also had cabbage and field peas and a roll.
I followed the meal with a piece of chocolate caramel cheesecake. A perfect conclusion to a perfect meal.
I realize food is an opinion thing and this is only my opinion. We've been there a few times and was never impressed as we are now. I highly recommend Riverfront Barbecue for Sunday dinner. (Word to the wise...arrive early. They close at 3:00 PM on Sundays)

Albany Fish Company

Reviewed By meghguyton - Tallahassee, Florida

When traveling we prefer "discovering" local restaurants rather than visiting the all-too-predictable chain establishments. Tripadvisor reviews led us to the Albany Fish Company and we're so glad they did. The slightly wonky set-up for ordering gives it more charm. Our lunch - a shrimp o'boy and a catfish dinner - included generous servings prepared Just Right. Staff members were all friendly (great Albany ambassadors!) and helpful. The AFC wasn't on our route through town, but it was well worth going out of our way. We'll be back!

Austin's Firegrill and Oyster Bar

Reviewed By Bill L - Norridge, Illinois

This place has some exception seafood on the menu. All the oysters are very good. Raw, Rockefeller, The Kitchen sink are all very good. Grouper Bites excellent. Shrimp Po’Boy sandwich excellent. Shrimp and corn chowder soup is great. Beer selection his very good but my only complaint is we visited 3 times in 3 Days. Lunch, late lunch , and dinner and the service on two occasions was so slow we waited 20 minutes for our drinks and another 15 minutes to get our order taken. I will say that because the food was good and server was super friendly I’d overlook the slow service. I’d definitely go back when in town.

I had the dinner special "Hot Fish" and it was great. All of us split a selection of appetizers and our favorite was smoked salmon dip. The service at the bar was great and our service at our table was even better. We all look forward to getting back out to dinner there.

It’s been several years since dining at this restaurant. It is just as quaint as I remember from our first visit. The eggplant Parmesan was prepared well and tasted great. I will definitely return again. Also, my husband raved about his Chicken Saltimboca.

Well for the most part the sushi here is pretty good and sometimes excellent. This weekend was not the case. Not only did our sushi come out after our dinner but the taste was almost not edible. I have ordered sushi 50 times at least and this past weekend almost makes me not want to go back. Which brings me to next issue. We ( a group of 9) ate dinner . Our waitress was rude and could really care less that we were there. When we paid for our meal the waitress did not tell us that the tip was already included. We found this out when we left and started discussing the cost of the bills.
