We {2} walked in on a very busy Saturday evening around 5;30, after calling earlier in the day to find out that they were no longer taking reservations for the day, but might have some available seating for walk-in's. We found a small table near the bar and where the 2-man band was setting up to play. The Syracuse football... More

This is my go to place for dinner when I'm in Syracuse. This time we ate outside, which in itself was very entertaining. The food was very good as always. The waitress was very patient with us, we hadn't been out for a while and started talking instead of looking at the menu. I had the baked haddock which is... More

Stopped in here one evening during a weekend visit to Syracuse as it was across the street from our hotel. Fun spot, lots of beer, adequate appetizers. lots of people. It was a place to get a drink before our dinner reservations. All in all, good experience. One of the group wanted to go back Saturday night for more wings.... More

Our waitstaff was charming, friendly, and their timing was always impeccable. The food was incredibly delicious, and my husband loved the wonderful beer selections from all over New York. We were not in the dining room, but the bustle of the bar added to the wonderful atmosphere.

Been here a couple times now. Love the reuben fritters, they r amazing. Good beer and the staff is always very helpful and fast. Wings aren't very good in my opinion bit I like them breaded. Live band on Friday night was very good. Nice mix of classics and Irish music.

If you're headed there for a drink, this is as good as it gets. Beer choices are numerous and eclectic and our waiter was very knowledgeable. For a meal, it's a good if not amazing choice but that's mainly because irish cooking is, by design, a bit on the bland side. That being said, what we did have was very,... More

Good beer and wine options. Good menu options. Very good staff. Live music, a separate room where it is easier for a conversation.

Stopped here during the Syracuse food tour. We were very impressed. Authentic Irish food. We sampled their version of the "shepherd's pie"--cabbage topped with mashed potatoes, then ham on top. It was then sprinkled with parsnips and a creamy horseradish sauce...mmmmm. Definitely a restaurant to go back to when in the downtown Syracuse area.
