We are 2 for 2 dining at Kitty Hoynes Irish Restaurant during our quick turnaround trips to Syracuse University. Since I have food allergies I often try to find traditional Irish places where more often than not, the food is freshly prepared and there are ample choices on the menu. Highly recommend Kitty Hoynes for great food, atmosphere, and service.... More

If you check into the Marriott hotels across the street, this is a great option for eating right across the street. We had very good wings. The building was renovated 25 years ago and is an architectural gem. The building is located in a nice shopping and nightlife neighborhood of Syracuse. So once you finish here there are other options... More

We stopped in for a beer and had read so many positive reviews..... The server was very cold! We ordered one beer and left. The sample I tasted was a highly rated beer, but tasted terrible. Dirty lines/taps?? I won't return.

Thank you for your review, very sorry to hear of your experience at Kitty Hoynes. We hold both our service and draft beer quality to high standards. We clean our draft lines bi-weekly by an outside contractor, ensuring quality draft beer, they were last cleaned 10.08.14. We will continue to see what may have caused this. There is no excuse...

Went here 3 nights during my stay in Syracuse. I had the best service the first night with Mallery as my waitress. My glass of water had ice and lemon in it with a straw. She brought out soda bread and butter and took my order. I ordered the Baked Haddock with summer vegetables and mash, it was delicious and... More

Consistently good food and great wait staff (although one of the bartenders always has a poor attitude). Great wraps at lunch and the flank steak sandwich is a winner. Their fries used to be amazing, but they changed and are now they're just run-of-the-mill. There's a craft beer of the month for $4.00/pint that's usually great. Trivia on Monday nights... More

This is not some franchised, crappy replica of an Irish pub. This is the real deal, owned and operated by an Irishman (his wife is from Syracuse which is how he ended up there). Kitty Hoynes was his mom's name. Many of the employees are obviously from Ireland and the the warm, welcoming atmosphere and decor is authentic as is... More

I parked my car on the street to go to a nearby store and when we finished at the store decided we should have lunch. We happened to be parked outside Kitty Hoynes. It wasn't busy so we had our choice of a table. Staff was friendly and helpful, our server offered her thoughts on the menu and a little... More

I was in downtown Syracuse for business and needed lunch. There were several places close by from which to select but wanted to try this Irish Pub. There is outside seating but we sat inside. There is no free Wi-Fi from the restaurant but I did get a connection from a nearby hotel. We were seated near the restrooms which... More

What's great about Kitty's is the bar is great with plenty in tap and more in bottles. But what most don't realize is they have great food too. You can go to the other side to sit away from the bar or eat in the Euro style bar as well. The clam chowder is the best. The chef is from... More

Very good pub fare and apps. The main course, meatloaf was good but not great. No problem getting a table on a Wednesday night.
