I would have given this a 5 if it were not for the smokers on the patio. They do separate it into a smoking and non-smoking section, but the smoke wafted our way. We shared the Roast Beef & Stilton sandwich which we found to be quite tasty. Topped off with Syracuse Pale Ale-a must if you are a fan... More

Great little place to hang out for happy hour at the outside tables right in the heart of armory square. Hundreds of beers on tap to choose from and a friendly staff. Music isn't to lots and crowd is a little older then some of the more "clubby" bars in Armory. Great for people watching late night too!

Fun bar in downtown Syracuse a stone's throw away from activities and other attractions. Lots of great specials like $10 off wine bottles and good pub food.

My wife and business associate and his wife went to a business function then off to the Blue Tusk for drinks. I was the DD for the night it was around 10 when we arrived and were greeted by GM whom I know. The 3 had multiple different beers and some shots. It was busy but ordering drinks was fast... More
