You Have to Try The Food

The food service is operated by a different owner within the bar but don't let the loud bar atmosphere fool you with this mini kitchen off to one side. The food is incredible. My favorites are the board of meats and cheeses you select yourself and the slow cooked beef sandwich (available... read more

Stopped by for lunch the other day. One of the specials was a robust chili. Let me tell you it was good. Full of flavor and warm but nothing that a reserved palate wouldn't enjoy.

Blue Tusk is one of our favorite local hangouts! An amazing variety of creative sandwiches, a great beer and wine selection, and extremely friendly and attentive staff. We've been stopping by the Blue Tusk, at least 3-4 times a month, for the past decade. It's right in the heart of Armory Square, so there are plenty of other places nearby.... More

'Twas the night after Christmas and driving home after visiting my parents when hunger struck my wife, my two year old son and me. We stop off in Syracuse and everything that looked decent had a 30 minute+ wait time. As we walked in defeat and shame towards the local Subways (Nooooo!!!😢) we spotted The Blue Tusk. Strangely enough, it... More

The booths are as isolated as train cars. You order at the bar, then can concentrate on your friends and your meal. The menu is diverse enough for many different tastes. Our go-to restaurant in Armory Square.

With 69 beers on tap, you cannot go wrong. They also have a great selection of wines. I had a nice glass of Medoc that was reasonably priced. The food was really good for a bar. Be warned, You will not have a waiter come to your table. Everything is self serve.

The highlight of going to Syracuse to get our dog groomed is lunch at the Blue Tusk. Great beer selection, especially IPA's which are our favorites. And 20 oz. pints. And the quality of the beer pour is always near perfect. The lobster BLT is always excellent. Hard to rate service since you order the food at a counter. Saves... More
