Had a good meal for a good price at Giffy's! The service was freindly, the food fresh and good and everything was womderful except they ran out of mashed potatoes! One member of my party wanted the meatloaf, but they ran out of mashed potatoes so she changed her order to her 2nd choice.

BBQ is just one of the offerings here, and they should stick with their other subtitle, "Al, American Grill. The BBQ in their title was a major factor in my decision to get off the Interstate and drive several miles out of my way. Unfortunately, they badly need lessons in BBQ. The food tasted good but BBQ? I don't think... More

Introduced here by my wife, before we were married, on my first trip to visit her when we were dating. This is the first place we went to when I arrived in town. That was back in 2004. Since then we have married and live away from the area, but we return 7 or 8 times a year and always... More

I've tried this place numerous times through the years (due to other family members liking it) and have never come around to actually wanting to go there. On its best day it's average. Too bad because the prices are reasonable and a good BBQ place is always welcome. My complaints? Well, first of all, service is friendly but very spotty.... More

BBQ varies greatly around the country and I don't think of upstate NY as BBQ central for any of the various styles out there. However, Giffy's was a pleasant surprise. I started with the sweet cornbread with honey butter and it was delicious. Again, cornbread tends to be rather regional and it might be too sweet for some, but I... More
