Then the restaurant closed for awhile - had issues - with staff and the DOH. January 2, 2015 was the date of our visit - we were there around 5pm - was a... read more

Food is becoming sub-par, it seems greasier, often arrives cold, service is so-so, tastes more like cafeteria food, selection is stale, staff seems unhappy, overall not what it used to be

I remember going to lunch at the now closed downtown location with my Father and marvelling how big and tasty the sandwiches where. On our recent visit we had lunch here twice and were not disappointed. I'd recommend the half sandwich - these are HUGE. Both the apple turnover and apple fritter were top notch. The fritter was four thicks... More

I don't live in Syracuse any more and it's been years since I've been here. I remember huge sandwiches piled on with meat. Same again today. It's great to know that something's change , but Danzers didn't . Service was wonderful too. Mmmmm!

Danzer's was always a standby for lunch when I was working and it hasn't lost its touch in the years since I retired. Enjoyed a lunch there with friends this week and everyone enjoyed their food -- Red Reuben (my personal favorite), Reuben, hot roast pork, hot roast beef and a very large Julienne salad. Get the half-sandwich unless you... More

My husband and I decided we wanted German food for dinner. Danzer's is the only remaining German restaurant in the Syracuse area. We could use another! While we were promptly seated, it took at least 15 minutes for anyone to come over to our table and ask us if we wanted anything to drink. While waiting for our drinks, another... More

Good beer selection. Sandwich (ham/cheese) was decent but the fries were undercooked. They fixed it immediately. The place does have some character but could use some upgrading. I will be back.

Went on a Saturday evening, early. Seated promptly, service was very attentive. We had sauerbraten, potato pancakes, and Reuben. Sauerbraten had a nice, tangy sauce, meat was a bit dry, but overall good. Potato pancakes, with sour cream were a bit thick, and not as crispy as I would have liked. The Reuben was excellent. Large, tasty desserts finished things... More
