Our party of five had lunch here on New Year's Eve. Our server was extremely personable and helpful. I had fish and chips, which were excellent. Others had sandwiches (beef on weck, Reuben, ham on a pretzel roll). Everyone enjoyed the meal. Our only complaint: For $9 the sandwiches didn't come with chips or anything. Fries were $1.99 extra.

We stopped at the Retreat after our 11 hour drive from NC to SYR. The wings and the beers we were earned and quite delicious. I would recommend that the Retreat add more waiter/waitressing staff - seems every time we go there, service is a bit dodgy.

We ordered steak, breaded chops, and Cheese steak. The food was excellent, along with the service. We went around 5.30 PM any later and I think it would have been much busier. the price was also good

My Wife & I along with another couple tried the Retreat last weekend. We were pleasantly surprised as we were not sure what to expect. The restaurant has been around for 40 years and appears to have been added on to over the years. It is very quaint and has a nice "homey feel " inside. The menu is quite... More

I recently reviewed this restaurant and gave it 4 stars. We just had lunch there again and must say service was terrible. After making reservations for lunch when we arrived it was like we were invisible. I must point out that one in our group is handicapped and has difficulty walking or standing. The staff completely ignored us even after... More

Nice central location it ha a authentic pub feel. The food was good how ever our waiter was very soft spoken and hard to hear, the person who took us said usually the service is not that bad, and the food and beverage selection would make me come back regardless. Nice part is that it is right down the road... More

First time visiting the Retreat. Great place for lunch. Atmosphere, speed of service, and most importantly the sandwiches. I speak for 5 guests.

I'm so glad that my sister remembered that the Retreat has Sunday sauerbraten dinner specials in the fall! I love sauerbraten when it's done well and the Retreat does it well! And generously! First, included with the entree was a choice of soup or salad. The "in house" cream of mushroom soup was delicious. It was accompanied by a generous... More

I grew up in Liverpool so have been here hundreds of times and often suggested it to others from out of town. This night my boyfriend and I chose to sit on the quitter dining side vs the bar or sport bar dining side because it was a Saturday night and very busy and loud as it often is on... More

My son and I had dinner here last night. Food was tasty & service was good. We had a great time being able to dine together without a lot of commotion going on around us. LOVE the outside string lights! Would recommend!
