I know they do Artisan sandwiches, but they fail in that aspect. I went back three times because the guys at work said to try something different. The ingredients are not fresh. If you don't believe me, watch them make your food. Hot sandwiches get the microwave.

if you want to stand, hear nothing but noise and not hear the company you arrived with, only like sandwiches forget gluten free anything unless u want a salad which heck the dressing is probably made with wheat. place is packed hence great atmosphere but accommodating gets a ZERO. friendliness of bar staff less than zero security A+ listened to people taking "food: orders A+ but overall drink at a bar eat at a restaurant

Excellent tap list with a good mix of locals, seasonals, and popular craft beers from around the country. They were out of a few after a big weekend, but still plenty to choose from. Atmosphere is lively with a big happy hour crowd. Food options are limited to soup/salad/sandwich, but what I had was very good. Lack of more hot items is the only thing holding back a 5-star experience.

Nice place to enjoy a beer with a friend! They have a great selection of beer on tap. They have a number of tables around the bar and you have to serve yourself from the bar. The only problem we had was a sign at the end of the bar saying order from the front of the bar and the bartenders on this Monday night were pretty slow to take orders and not much room to reach thru people sitting at the bar. Overall it was a good time.

I was on business and traveled alone to Syracuse. My nearby hotel suggested this bar so I checked it out.

The positive: A very knowledgeable bartender who even gave free samples of beer and showed great knowledge and genuine interest in the subject.

The negative: It was a struggle to get them to accept my dinner order and being alone I felt a bit like a fish out of water. There were large groups all around having a good time and I think that's the best way to go to this restaurant.
