Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, pizzas, salads, and more at Jillian’s of Albany on Pearl Street. Spanning three floors, Jillian’s lures skittish taste nubs out of hunger caves with a menu laden with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. Tongue-sled down the meaty slopes of the Ybor Cuban sandwich, which stacks roasted turkey, salami, deli ham, and Swiss cheese between mustard- and mayo-dressed French bread ($8.49), or ride a beer-battered wave with fish surfing alongside coleslaw, fries, and tartar sauce ($11.99). Beyond esophageal entertainment, Jillian’s also boasts a 5,000 square foot space lined with interactive video games, plus live entertainment throughout the year.
- This place is awesome from the adult arcade with bar downstairs to your regular tavern type restaurant and billards on the main floor and the dance floor upstairs! I love this place! What's great is you can fit like any occasion to it. – mickigwinn, Citysearch
- Jillian's offers an experience that nowhere downtown currently can. There's no other establishment (in the Albany area) you can go to on a Saturday night where you can see a live band, dance to a decent clubmix, and chillout in a lounge/game room. – Ryan M., Yelp
