My husband and I ate at 72 Tavern before a UTICA City Soccer game. They were still offering brunch when we arrived so I ordered brunch and my husband ordered lunch. Both meals were good and so was the service despite the crowd. The bloody...Mary’s were a small meal in themselves. They came with a large stalk of celery, stuffed olives, lemon, lime, bacon and shrimp! This is a fun place to go to eat and/or drink before an event at the Adirondack Bank Center.More

I come into town once per year and have has two visits there, last year and this. Had a burger first trip, it was for lunch and it was good. This year, I went with friends and made the mistake of ordering the ribs, which...were somewhat tough. I am used to the "fall off the bone type" which these were not. That being said, the place is spacious with many large screen TV's including one humongous one. Service was fair, our server did a lot of chatting with friends which interrupted our service somewhatMore

We have visited 72 Tavern several times. The food is different than the typical "bar" food. It is a little more café within a bar. They like to add specials to supplement their regular menu, such as an affordable BBQ menu and lots of drink...specials. The wait staff have all been great. You can enjoy almost any game you want on one of the many televisions lining all four walls. You can still carry a conversation, even with a bar crowd and the music or game broadcast. Prices range from affordable to moderate.More

We tried them out while in town mostly because other places we wanted to try were closed on Monday. That said, we are glad we came. Our server was excellent. He was friendly, professional and took great care of us. Coming during happy hour is...well worth it. Drinks can drive up the cost of any meal. Coming here during happy hour and taking advantage of their specials will save you money. We shared the nachos with the beef brisket. The brisket was excellent. Just wish they gave you more. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and recommend you check them out.More

This barely one-year old tavern really has all it takes to be a success - one super sized big screen, plenty of HD TVs for watching your favorite game, good food, a nice bar and plenty of booths and tables plus a friendly and welcoming...staff. We went for a few drinks and appetizers (chicken wings are a must, they were crispy and tasty) and truly enjoyed everything. I loved the historical sports facts offered in the menu. Awesome!More
