We were in town for a football camp at Colgate University and after sitting out in the hot sun for 4 hours, we were ready for air conditioning and some good food. We ordered the sampler appetizer platter, the best part of that was the potato skins and the spicy sauce that came on the side. I ordered the philly... More

While in town we had dinner here. I would say it was a good solid dinner with good service. The Restuarant was full of locals which j always like when visiting a new town. If you want a good place to have a good meal hen check his one out. It was during the olympics for our visit so j... More

Our son who lives in Hamilton, brought us here for supper; he eats here about once a week. The menu has lots of choices, and service was fast and friendly. The dining room is fairly small, so I expect it may be crowded when the college is in session.

Have to have the Rusch chips!!! Omg. So delicious. Homemade potato chips. The broccoli cheese soup was the best I have ever had. The turkey panni sandwiches couldn't be beat. They were like thanksgiving dinner on a sandwich.

Horrendous service. It took us 20 minutes to get two drinks and we are still waiting for our water. The Cobb salad featured rotten green eggs and overipe avacados. When I told the waitress it was bad she said sorry about that and charged us. Find someplace else to eat. This place stinks out loud and you will be lucky... More

I'm sorry I don't get the great reviews of this place. It was average, extremely salty pub food. Our nachos had cheese that wasn't melted. My burger was average. I would definitely not rush back. Maybe popular with college kids? A million TVs, so a good spot to watch sports, I would imagine.

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon during an upstate Spring snowstorm. My husband has stopped here before while traveling, this was my first time. The homemade soups were delicious, roasted chicken noodle and pizza soup. My husband had the Reuben Panini and I had the Spinach Dip pizza. My pizza was definitely burnt but tasty (the waitress has offered to... More

Stopped in on a visit to Colgate. First of all, don't let the outside scare you away. It looks like a dive, and I expected a college bar with sticky floors. It turned out to be a very clean and modern sports bar with huge tvs everywhere. We sat at the bar for lunch and were served by the owner.... More

We were visiting and ate here because it was recommended by our host. The food was fresh and tasty. The service was very attentive and friendly. Great selection of locally brewed beers. The place has a very comfortable vibe. We tend to dislike TV's in a restaurant, but these are high enough that they weren't too obnoxious. Good value.
