We stayed in the hotel for the Cornell graduation, the bartenders and the wait staff were great, fun and engaging with the customers. Would love to go back if we are ever in town.

The staff were friendly and welcoming. Good creative food with excellent drinks. Once servers busy we had to take turns for service. Waited to place order and then pay. Was a good thing we had the time. Overall good experience.

For a football game day, the place was empty. Our pretzels and french onion soup was cold. The red osier sandwiches should really come with au jus on the side. The corned beef and cabbage was the biggest disappointed. As a very Irish lady, I...More
