A Syracuse-area favorite

I love this place and return every time I'm in town. A comfortable, lively, and tiny little resto-bar with upscale pub food (burgers, steaks, fries) and much more. Try the 3-guys clams (named for my brother and friends) or one of the daily specials. Never been disappointed here. Love the... read more

We have eaten before many times but have not been here for years since we moved to another suburb close to Dewitt. We came after a wake and it was packed I want to order our drinks and was greeted by the bartender who was pleasant and really good offering us a spot at the corner of the bar and... More

Traveling through DeWitt, NY? This place is worth checking out for dinner. A hole in the wall in a strip mall. Cosy & friendly inside and jam-packed with locals. $4 beers. Pub food, but broader. Terrific, good value.

The food is pretty good here. The noise level is awful. It is difficult to carry on a conversation. Parking is non-existent. Ok for lunch.

Don't be put off by the strip mall location - this is a terrific gastro-pub. It is a popular place and they do not take reservations, so either come early or plan to hang out at the bar. The food is very fresh, making it difficult not to over-eat! The ambiance is very friendly with a lot of locals. We... More

Cozy tavern with comfortable tables or booths. They have a variety of tasty appetizers, soup, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Specials are available daily and are always wonderful. Our regular favorites are the portobello chicken sandwich and the eggplant napolean. Friendly attentive service.

Stopped with the wife. Menu ranges from sandwiches and burgers to high end entrees. Service was excellent, food to match any place. Full bar with nice selection of wines, could have more microbrews though. Will return again

Nice place to grab a bit with friends. Staff is friendly and easy going if you just want to hang out. Daily specials were good, fried haddock was terrific. Wine beer and drinks. Could update the bathrooms, though.
