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... read 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

Went here for lunch on a recent visit. I suspect it is much more the place to go for a beer later in the day than for lunch. Staff were friendly and helpful; food was okay. I had soup and a quesadilla and my lunch partner had a sandwich. I think hers was the better choice though the soup was... More

It's a very laid back environment, which is exactly what we wanted for lunch. We shared the chicken tusk panino and the portobello and goat cheese quesadilla. The quesadilla was good but because of the goat cheese, was a little rich after a while so I'm glad we split it. The panino was excellent. We sat outside. The prices are... More
