Looks are deceiving with Riley's. The place looks a bit like a dive bar, but the food is excellent! Prices are a bit on the high side, but the food was worth every penny.

Small-ish local scene place with a standard menu on one side of the sheet and the " chalkboard" on the other. Had the perch filet dinner and was stuffed full of excellently prepared fried fish and nice solid side dishes. Parking is a bear but the short walk from whatever parking you find is worth it!

Started coming to Riley's when it first opened many years ago. We've been away from Syracuse more than 20 years and still try to get here for a meal every time we visit town. Never disappoints.

It's always hard to make menu selections here because everything always sounds so yummy. Tonight my app was oysters with caramelized onions and bacon. My main was sword fish; fresh and moist. The desserts are always break-your-heart desirable but because Thanksgiving is coming I only had a forkful of another's chocolate mouse pie. The atmosphere is warm and friendly as... More

This place rocks, you wouldn't know where it is endless someone for here tells you, but it's a great hang with greater food. Reasonable and fun, there are some things you'll remember, lobster roll to be sure. It's a stop worth not being in a hurry at, hang here and enjoy the vibe.

Our crew of four all found food that was tasty and satisfying - salmon, ham and cheese sandwich, lobster roll and (Oops, forgot). The service was individual and caring. They made a special effort - sent out for fresh milk as they didn't like the taste of what they had. We loved it. Predictably tasty and satisfying.

They are very accommodating regarding substitution. We had everything from burgers, fish and chips, to scallops. The service was good. Everyone had plenty to eat and left happy. Make sure you have dessert

Delicious house-made bread! Delicious blueberry pie!! ... And a good dinner to boot. Had a Blue Plate Special, lamb burger with feta cheese. That role tasted home made, too. Wonderful food and friendly service. Will go back next time I'm in town.

A great neighborhood restaurant "where everybody knows your name." It's always crowded but worth the wait. Seafood dishes on Fridays are outstanding -- so many interesting choices. Everything we had was well-prepared and beautifully served. A gem.

Haven't been there for awhile. Excellent service. I ordered the sauerbraten. Got 4 slabs of badly over cooked, unmarinated pot roast over a bed of noodles. Very poor for their special.
