We stopped in for a drink on a Sunday afternoon. No events going on at Syracuse University so the place as well as the area was relatively quiet. There were two bartenders working the bar, a male and a female. We took a high-top table in the bar area. My wife waited at the table and I easily walked to the bar. I say this as we have visited this establishment in the past, when it was jammed. I waited at the bar and watched as customer after customer was served by the male bartender. I got his attention and said "when you have a moment I would like a couple of drinks." The bartender did not acknowledge this, just kept serving other people. After ten minutes of waiting for drinks and no end in sight we walked out.
Is there a manager in this place? Does s/he watch the activity at the bar? A few drinks is not a big deal, but I live locally and will most likely not return to this place.
