“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Stopped in Utica on business for a night and was hankering for a burger and and a beer... What a great burger it was.... The Reuben Burger is to die for, hand pressed, fresh brisket, all local handmade ingredients, Mike and Debbie are the most pleasant people I've ever met for a downtown business, what made it even more unique was being served up by the lovely Madison, such a sweetheart. Must try. Get the word out folks!!! Don't pass up the chance to stop at Griffin's Pub, you won't be disappointed!!!!!

“First Time Visit - Came Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

In town for the NYS HS Hockey Championships. Staying at Hotel Utica. Regulars recommended Griffin's as being very friendly to this annual event and regular visitors. Owner was on site and was still cooking snacks after midnight which was greatly appreciated. Just a straight forward pub. Nothing fancy but clean, comfortable, friendly, welcoming. Had a great time.
