    Great place to go and watch Syracuse Basketball games! They have great 'orange' specials during the games. Great atmosphere- 2 floors, great bartenders.

    Happy hour until 10pm ! Their Caesar dressing is a little weird to me.

    Who would suspect that this karaoke dive bar would have an adorable rooftop location that looks like a neighborhood porch? Go straight upstairs to the top.

    Drinks are cheap, music is good and it's not so loud and crowded you can't have a conversation. Basically all I'm looking for in a bar.

    Leigh Anne Zinsmeister · May 18, 2015
  • Jeremy J.

    It's OK for a times square bar. Multiple levels is nice, decent beer selection. If you have to be in the area, not a bad spot.

    A bit busy after work but the place is big. Happy hour is good and lasts forever.

    A 20 percent gratuity is added to every tab regardless of how many people are in your party.

    Great place to go if you don't want to talk with the people who dragged you here despite your normally good judgement!

    Go somewhere else. Service was terribly slow and the place is so noisy you can't even talk across the table.

    Wings are OK. They are small and have a different flavor from normal wings. Get the Social Platter instead so you can try multiple apps.

    Ditto the extra charge for soda refill tip. I didn't see the tip before I ordered the 2nd one.

    Basak A · October 14, 2011
  • Kyle J.

    Make sure you really want that second glass of soda. They charge by the glass and don't mention it until your bill comes.
