Great place for a beer!

Knowledgable barkeeps, great beer. So many choices, so little time!! Great place to have a few that you will not find anywhere else in the city

Great beer selection and sandwich menu. Beers are pricey...but you get what you pay for. Food is always good. The room can get crowded and parking can also be a challenge.

Although the food is very good, I am not a fan of the "fast casual" business model where you order some food at a counter. Maybe I am just old-fashioned but I hate to wait in line. Would rather "wait" at a table. So, the downside of this place you had to order your food at a separate counter. The... More

Cool Atmosphere and good lunch. Variety of unique sandwiches for lunch. Staff was pleasant and very helpful! Architecture and tables on the inside were neat as well

My wife and I always visit the Tusk when we come to Syracuse. The beer selection is outstanding and there's always something new to try. The staff will inform customers if a beer selection is more expensive than normal. We shared a meat-and-cheese plate (all cheese for us) served with bread from The Daily Bread bakery around the corner. It's... More

"Go-to" bar downtown for many. Average bar selection, I see the biggest draw as the amount of people that cram into the Tusk at once

Amazing sandwiches, great craft brew selection. Hand carved sandwiches will make you want to eat one and get one to go!

A great place to stop in for a few drinks. Really good beer selection and the appetizers were quite good as well. Would return.

Did not eat here, but met some friends and had something to drink. The place can get crowded at times, but the atmosphere is pretty neat. I've eaten here before and the food is average for my taste.

Popped in for a drink before our dinner reservation....the bartender was friendly, made some great cider and beer recommendations and even let us try a sample to help us decide what to get. The place just seems very chill and low key...the atmosphere was lively and fun but not out of control, the selection and pricing was great and the... More
