Located in a residential area parking is limited. They had the sidewalk roped off instead of cleaning the snow causing use to walk in the street. Inside there are two sections; a dining area and a pub. We were immediately seated and within within seconds our order was taken and served our drinks... read more

Riley's is a small comfortable Restaurant that never disappoints. The dining area is quaint, the service staff is always friendly, fast and knowledgable. The menu changes weekly featuring innovative meals that are expertly prepared. I am elways impressed with the presentation and quality of the meals that are prepared in what appears to be a small kitchen and prep area.... More

Everyone in our group had a different item from the daily special entree menu. All arrived together and pretty fast. All meals were served freshly made and hot from kitchen. Great pub atmosphere! Pleasant waitress, and nice enjoyable time had by all in our group. We will return!!!

We haven't been there in years but because they are a sponsor of St Lucy's, We gave them a try. Great atmosphere and the menu selections were anything but the usual. I had the duck patties with a side of the roast root vegetables. My wife had the featured salad and the minestrone soup. Two Middle Ages beers filled out... More

Great bar, great food and great service...what else could you ask for? One of the better local establishments in the syracuse area, not to be missed. From the moment you walk in the door you feel comfortable and at home. They may not know your name if your not a regular,....like Cheers, but they make you feel as if you... More

Had a pretty rediculously good NY strip steak with great sides. Cooked to perfection! Nice little spot! I will be back!

We went to Riley's for dinner recently and I had not been there in years. The food was average, but the service was very slow. We had to hail our server for everything we wanted...from drink refills to the check!! The dining area was quite dimly lit. I had fish which was ordinary and nothing special. However the Irish fries... More

We went to dinner with a friend. The waiter was amazing and the service was efficient. I had fried shrimp, which was quite good, my husband had a steak, which was disappointing with lots of grizzle, while our friend had fried fish, which she enjoyed. It has a nice ambiance--warm and inviting.

We had a reservation for 12 people a month in advance for 8 pm. We arrived. Were seated. Waited 1/2 an hour until we called wait staff over because they ignored us. Then they told us that 75% of the food on the menu was no longer available. Not only that, the kitchen substituted potato chips for real potatoes, etc.... More

Went for lunch. Meals were good. Fish sandwich was a bit messy to eat. October is time for the "Testicle Festival"! Free fried goat testicles. Didn't try them though. All was good until trying to pay. Took an exceptionally long time to get the credit card back from the waitress.
