THE BEST IN TROY! Owned and operated by Mark Miron, the Park Pub sits a top a beautiful hillside setting, adjacent to the Frear Park Hockey Rink and overlooking the Frear Park Golf Course. With a little bit of Irish style, we conceptualize an inviting social and dining atmosphere, whether having a brew at the bar, enjoying a leisurely lunch, having a fireplace dinner setting or just spending time during happy hour and relishing in our patio view (weather permitting). And of course … we are most famous for our pizzzzzzzza and award winnings chicken wings!

When you’re hungry and short on time, think Price Chopper and Market 32. Every day in our Foodfare section, we’re busy preparing hearty and delicious meal solutions so they’re ready when you need them most. We offer all kinds of family favorites, from pizza and subs to soup and sushi. Just mix and match a selection of sides, like traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes and fresh steamed vegetables, and bring home a delicious and balanced meal the whole family will appreciate. And when it comes to wings, we recommend a taste of success. Try our award-winning Wing War Sauce or choose from varieties like Buffalo, BBQ and Garlic Parmesan sauces. For deeper deliciousness, we give our wings extra time in the smoker – it helps cook the flavor right to the bone.

​My name is EARL "Fuki" Page or Chef "Fuki" pronounced (Foo-Key). I have been cooking since I was 12 years old when my father taught me how to make my first dish which was "Southern Style French Toast". My passion for cooking was very deep and is the reason why I've been cooking commercially and privately for over 28 years. Fatcat's BBQ is a blend of all the different foods I have learned throughout the years with a level of love and spices that would have you understanding our Moto witch is "You Ain't Had Good Until You Have Fatcat's Good".
