Pints settling, traditional tunes coming from the music circle and craic in the air, we came to the right place. Stopped for a pint stayed for the afternoon. ordered the Irish Cannon Balls (amazing) for a snack, and decided to have lunch. Back bacon and cabbage was a great choice, fish and chips and meatloaf were right on too. Service... More

Steak sandwich great but it was cheesy to charge .50 to substitute garnish. Didn't like all the doors,steps,levels & different entrances to chopped up rooms.Nice friendly staff. Will be better when roadwork complete.

I had the flank steak sandwich and it was absolutely amazing. I've been to the bar many times, but this was my first time eating there. I wish they had Beef & Guinness stew, but my friend and I were both very pleased with our sandwiches.

I have dined here many times over the years but never on a huge weekend like the St Patricks Day festivities. Service was spot on despite the crowd and food good but not over the top. David Hoynes the owner greets all patrons while busily picking up glasses, tending to business at hand. Definitely a must for anyone visiting the... More

We visited Kitty Hoynes on a Friday night the eve before St. Patricks' day. Had we known that they take reservations we certainly would have made one as the pub was packed. That being said the hostess seated us at a reserved table as we assured her that we would be gone before they showed up. Needless to say for... More

Being big fans of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, we decided we'd frame our meals for our weekend in Syracuse around places that have been on the show! It was our first time searching out featured restaurants (or dives!) and we decided to head to Kitty Hoynes for lunch. It's an Irish Pub owned by someone from Ireland, with an Irish... More

Great food and they pour a fine pint. What's not to like? I give it a 4 as on the night when it was not so rocking, the service and food were impeccable. One night, it was jammed with mostly bar patrons and the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and both the food and service suffered a bit. But a... More

Went to Kitty Hoynes Tonight. I ordered Oysters. The staff said they were not comfortable serving them, I ordered Irish Meat Loaf, They were out, I ordered, Crem Brulee Cheese Cake, they just sold the last piece. I ordered a different meal than what I wanted and had a good meal (as always), but the waitress appologized, the manager appologized... More

We stopped on for dinner on a Thursday evening. The bar scene was hopping. I am not sure if they had a special dining event, but food was average. We were placed in a table next to the bathroom (which was filthy). The server was very attentive. The fish was tasty but the fries were limp. My party also got... More
