“THR RETREAT - A SPECIAL TREAT”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The food is excellent and the service is great! The steaks are tender and cooked exactly the way you want. The portions are large enough, you won't leave hungry. Very friendly service and it's family oriented. The sports bar is separated in a separate area from the main dining room. You can sit outside in the summer. Nice place for that extra special occasion.

“Taking a Nice Break at the Retreat”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

The Retreat in Liverpool, New York has won me over. I tend to skip the Retreat for a few other locations in Liverpool and I didn't realize what I was missing. The atmosphere and decor are very cozy and gives off a cabin vibe. It's hard to notice it along the bar, but can be felt on the left and right side. The food is a major highlight of the Retreat, especially the buffalo wings. They are done well, while not being too spicy and/or crispy. These are one of the best buffalo wings I've found in Syracuse to date. Also, the service is good too. The servers will break in with an addition or joke to a conversation and it makes it only better. Overall, the Retreat in Liverpool, New York is more than just a bar, but an all around public house (PUB) and a new favorite of mine.

“Solid Food/Service & Fun Place”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We have eaten here nearly 3 dozen times and it is always very good. The retreat always does a nice job in terms of food, service and prices. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the bar is the Cheers of Liverpool and surrounding areas. I really like sitting in the booths next to the windows as they are bright and roomy. The food is always consistently good and the variety can't be beat. I love their hamburgers (French fries are extra) and my favorite sandwiches are the "Rugged Reuben" or the "Cranberry Focaccia". I have never had bad service at the Retreat as the staff is always friendly and professional. Happy hours are always fun on Fridays where I have met friends from Lockheed-Martin many times and the Retreat has, at times, put out happy hour munchies/snacks starting at 5PM.

I used to like their pumpkin pies and ordered one this past fall for $25, but it wasn't as good as, say, 5 years ago. It was too spicy and dry this time.

“A Liverpool Gem!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I have lived in the Liverpool area for over 20 yrs now and the Retreat has always been a personal favorite of mine. Lunch or dinner they offer great atmosphere and food. I bring relatives there when they come in from out of town to visit. My brother & sister in law from Vermont specifically ask if we can go there. I love their menu; great soups and salads, sandwiches, and great dinner selections also. They offer specials every day! And their desserts are unbelieveable......great pies, cakes, and specialities. They also have a great bar area and large screen tvs to take in sports events and in the summer months a covered outside patio area with live music on the weekends....
