Always good food and service. Nothing fancy but a great place for lunch or dinner. Burgers are super and the best fries in Syracuse. My wife and I love coming back here to eat on visits. They accomodated our lunch party of 10 with no difficulty and the service was super. If in Liverpool make the Retreat a must stop.

We joined another couple for a light meal midweek. Our waitress was trying to serve several tables and, after attempting a number of times to get her attention, short of screaming, I gave up on getting a drink refill. The food was served in a timely manner. The portions are generous and the quality and value notable. We enjoyed a... More

OK, love the John's Revenge sandwich (grilled patrami with swiss, and pepperocini on swirled rye), but for $9 couldn't you throw on a few potatoe chips? None of the sandwiches came with any sides. Service was slow. Took over 15 minutes for the drinks to show up. Overall food was good.

Nothing on the menu makes this restaurant stand out, but the food and service are great. Also a great place to go out for drinks with friends.. great outside bar. Middle-age crowd typically which is a nice change from other bar / restaurants.

Three of us arrived for a late lunch on a Monday. After we had eaten, our waitress told us that she was leaving and asked if we wanted to transfer to another waitress or check out. Wanting her to get her tip, we paid the $90 bill and gave her a $30 tip. Before we left, we wanted another drink... More

We sat under the trees on the patio near the outside bar. It's a pretty nice setting. We waited 5 minutes to be recognized and order drinks. As we waited and waited we noticed one server (not ours) drone on and on to a table of friends and ignore others. When our drinks finally arrived they were delivered by our... More

We stopped in on our way to Boston. We decided to split a meal and got the seafood platter which consisted of haddock, shrimp, and scallops. Thinking of a split meal, I was going to get the salad that came with the meal and we would split the haddock and the baked potato and then share the scallops and shrimp.... More

Heard a lot of good things about this place so I decided to check it out. It's an older building in fairly good shape. Was confused on getting into the place because both front doors lead you into the bar. Was not welcomed by a host just told to take any seat. Had water to drink but served in nasty... More
