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.

I went to Riley's with my brother and father, it has all fresh and tasty food, well worth the price. The atmosphere is definitely pub style very dim lighting, but this works for the style. Superb food, I got the fried Perch, first time I tried Perch. Lastly, you have to try the "Irish Fries" crispy, well seasoned, thin cut... More

His does this place stay in business with the rude blond at the bar? We went there based on a current review we read. Sorry we did. Rude service and not so great food.

Riley's has a very changeable menu - you never know what to expect. We were there recently and my husband had the Lake Erie Walleye Pike with fries and coleslaw. Unfortunately he thought the Pike was a little undercooked - so he rated the dinner "fair". I had a turkey burger with provolone, a baked tomato and macaroni salad. My... More

They have an excellent burger. The meat is flavorful and very tender. I like the swiss cheese and mushroom burger. The menu changes daily and their desserts are not to be missed.
