Restaurant details

Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: From local ingredients to local brews, the Upstate menu offers dishes to suit the heartiest appetites and includes crave-worthy Binghamton Spiedie Rods with tzatziki; a finger-licking good Wing Bar with a choice of sauces; Sliders featuring sharp cheddar cheese from Cuba, NY; and the true Upstate classic Poutine, composed of hand-cut russet fries topped with pot roast gravy and Yancey's cheddar cheese curds. Delicious burger choices are plenty and favorite comfort foods like Utica Shrimp Riggies, Clint's Summer Camp Fish Fry and BBQ Glazed Beef Meatloaf will make you feel at home. The culinary inspirations are time-honored, New York-inspired, and familiar American classics prepared with the freshest ingredients made from scratch and locally sourced when available. Not to be missed is Upstate's wide selection of rotating craft beers from the Empire State's finest breweries including Saranac, Ithaca Beer Co., and Ommegang, plus our refreshingly cold house brew, Upstate Lager, always available on tap and always a crowd pleaser.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We ate lunch here during a one night stay at the resort/casino. The server who took care of us was very friendly, and took great care of us. One of our guests, who is gluten free, ended up ordering an item that was not gluten free, so she couldn't eat all of it. On her own, the server brought her an additional dish of seafood, at no charge, to supplement the meal our guest had ordered and couldn't eat the majority of. I have never seen this happen in any restaurant. The server just said she couldn't see our guest eat such a little amount, and go away "hungry" so they sent out the additional food, to make sure she had enough to eat. Amazing. This was the level of service we found throughout the resort/casino. We enjoyed the food here at the Tavern very much, and would eat here again.

“Better then last time”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This was my second visit and it was better than the first. The drinks were good...tried two different specialty drinks from the menu. The appetizers were great. I highly recommend the chicken speedies. My burger was fantastic with caramelized onions, bacon and hot peppers. Lots of food and good prices. One of the better restaurants at the casino.

“Best American Fare at Casino”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

My Mom and I went here for dinner on a Thursday night before Bingo. I was very impressed with the menu, the food and variety of food, the service, the decor, everything. My Mom who is hard to please also loved this place!! Our food came out hot, fresh and good sized portions. There is a nice array of "comfort foods" which fit in well with the chilly weather.There is a bar with TVs for Sports watching,and a dining room area as well. We ordered dessert to go and it was big enough to share. It took a bit longer than we expected to receive the dessert, however. All food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant. We will be going back soon with my husband.

“Don't go to bar and restaurant right above front desk.”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Two nights a group of 4 went to the bar at the top if escalator for drinks and appetizers both nights we were treated like no one wanted to wait on us first night the girl seating us said they were closed as we were turning to leave she said no I just don't want to work any more so she seated us in another persons area who did an ok job. Next night we sat in bar 3 people working and one man finally came to take our order 2 ice teas and 2 beers and appetizers took forever to get teas and when we needed refills we were told they could not make more tea so we drank water but then the bar tender was visiting and never came back to get the beer reorder either so after my husband standing at bar without help we decided to cash out. Still had to walk over to the 3 employees to ask for our ticket. This made the bar tender mad and he slammed it down and when we were like we wanted more to drink he said thanks for the tip??? Don't stay or drink here really bad. Someone at Turning Stone check your video for October 17th and 18th we weren't hard out if control customers
