“Community gathering spot”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Good food, good service in an eclectic setting. Enjoyed the random collections, old wall hangings and homey feel of the place. Very large but gives the feel of being a hometown favorite.

“Treat Yourself to the Retreat”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Nice ambiance, comfortable seating and decent views out the windows, combined with fast service and very good food make this restaurant one of the top eateries in the Syracuse area.

“Lunch”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Retreat Restaurant Liverpool NY. The restaurant was very clean, inside and out. We asked to eat outside on the patio. We were seated quickly, even with a lunch crowd. The food was, presented well, and very good. The portion was very generous. We were there for lunch and had their chicken Caesar Salad. My friend had a cheeseburger with French fries, which was also very generous. The waitress was very congenial. She checked with a few time to see if our food and drinks were ok. We were not rushed, even with a lunch time crowd that was coming into the restaurant. We would go back there again.

“Large, Nosiey and in center of village.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

In the center of the Village of Liverpool, NY. Food is standard fare and the service is sometimes very slow. The food is sometimes wonderful and at others times horrible. During Happy Hour you can't hear the person next to you speaking. The bar is located in the middle of the resturant, there are steps from either side in order to enter. In the summer there is a large outside eating area / deck. Using a walker it is easy to enter the resturant in the summer from the deck, but in the winter there are only steps to enter. This is not my favorite place to eat in Liverpool.

“Quaint local favorite”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a quaint restaurant and must be local favorite as it was still full when we arrived at 9pm for a late meal. Service was attentive and friendly. The food was both tasty and affordable. We had the cheese burger, hot wings and the Philly cheese steak. Would certainly go back next time we are in the area.
