Family Restaurant near Utica

We'll be driving from Buffalo to Albany at the end of next week and looking at Utica as a good place to stop and have dinner - we'd appreciate any recommendations for a family restaurant, thanks!

What type of food? Utica is known for diversity in restaurants, with Italian being the most famous. Just off Exit 31 (I-90)..head South on Genesee Street. You will find Delmonico's Italian Steakhouse, just beyond the Best Western on the right..the areas' most popular restaurant is Symeon's Greek Restaurant, RT 5a in Yorkville,..Georgics Village Cafe on Genesee St in New Hartford is another popular and tasty spot, Utica has restaurant choices that are quite varied, any special interests..Asian, Indian, Lebanese, this is a "foodie" town..got a craving for something..just ask!..have fun!

Thank John for the recommendations - we've never been to Utica and are looking for a casual place (we'd have been in the car most of the day). Italian/American standard fare would work best, kiddie menu a bonus. I'll check out your suggestions, thanks again!
