SU Parents: Good food, expected atmosphere, reasonably priced

Of all the SU family "go to" restaurants, this is the only one that I haven't been disappointed in. Its pub food done well. Definitely go! There were 8 of us, we had burgers, chicken riggies, salads, fish tacos. No one had any complaints.

Excellent beer selection (love brown ale), great food, prompt - friendly service. Will be returning. Bartender offered other similar types of beer to try, what a pleasant surprise.

I'm a Syracuse University student and I don't understand why anyone ever goes here. The food is horrible, low quality, the staff is unprofessional, they are always out of menu items and there's not many choices. Don't waste your money or time! It looks like it would be good but I promise you it's not!

Faegan's looked inviting, cosy, on a cold day so my college-age son and his girlfriend joined us there for lunch. It reminded me of my own university days' hangout- warm atmosphere, lots of people, good eats. I chose the onion soup to start( so good I went back a couple days later just for that) and the daily "carve"- delicious... More

Great neighborhood pub, but the owner needs to look up the definition of "opportunity cost" in Websters dictionary. (Maybe LSU fans just take a little longer to "get ready" for the game.) There was a line forming to enter about 30 minutes before opening. The place was packed to the brim within 5 minutes of opening. Nearby places opened earlier.... More

One of my favorite places on the Syracuse University hill. The menu is not that diverse, but what is on it you'll find delicious. My staple Reuben is a little dry there, but just ask for some extra dressing, if you like it saucier like I do. Their fries doused in gravy are a unique treat. It's a bit loud... More

I was lucky enough to have a client visit to upstate NY and decided to stay in a hotel that was adjacent to the Syracuse University campus. I wanted to venture off of hotel property and the staff unanimously recommended this establishment. This is the quintessential college pub: from the beer selection to the location to the menu. Service was... More

Good food and beer, Not a great place for families with children. More of a college bar with good food.

Went for a quick lunch Waitress was fab, really friendly I ordered poutine and was extremely disappointed. The curds were just cut into chunks and the grave and fries not hot enough to melt the curds :( The place did have a nice feel about it and I can image it being s fun place in the evenings or weekend...

I enjoyed going to Faegans with my family back in the eighties. I worked there from 1989 through 1992. Every time I head "home" for a visit. I have to have lunch or dinner. The menu has changed considerably since the early nineties. There were so many delicious choices I had a hard time choosing. I finally settled on the... More
