The hostess told us there was a private party in the back, so we opted for a HiTop table in the bar area. Since we had seen this restaurant on DDD, we tried one of the special aps that Guy suggested - corned beef cannorballs. Good but not wonderful. The clam chowder was good. Since we were... read more

David Hoynes is a lovely host! His restaurant exudes the hospitality of the Irish people! New Years Eve is a particularly magical time! And the Irish soda bread is to die for!

Kitty Hoynes is a true Irish pub in Syracuse! I have been to Ireland over 20 times and I love the pubs there. This place is awesome. Feels like the real thing minus the accents! The food is a mix of traditional Irish pub food and delicious gourmet fusion of American and Irish fine cuisine. You will not be disappointed... More

I arrived and it was definitely not busy. Despite this I waited for an extended time to receive an acknowledgment from the hostess. She was on the phone and may have been taking a reservation but there was no eye contact or smile. When she finally got off the phone I did not get the impression that my business was... More

Best part is walking in from bar into the dining room. It smelled soooooo good. Everything we ate, salmon, bangers n mash, pork n cabbage was all enjoyed and eaten. No to-go boxes. And of course Guinness on tap is always good. Can't wait until I'm in Syracuse again. Definitely coming here.

This is directly across the street from the Marriott Residence Inn which makes it easily accessible. We had a late lunch which was very good. I had the lamb sliders and the Guinness mustard was awesome. Of course a couple of Guinness to was things down and say no more. It was full of Cuse basketball fans getting ready for... More
