Fish and chips is great, they have a nice beer selection and there is typically live music. It is a popular place so you might have a wait.

Great atmosphere for meeting with friends for happy hour. We go here often. The crowd is a little more mature which I like. Not too many early 20’s. Mostly adult professionals. The food is very good. Staff is super friendly. Great live music.

I live in syracuse but previously lived in Dublin. I appreciate the food, the hospitality, the care and good spirit of David Hoyne. It's a great place. Plus it hosts St Baldrick's fundraiser each spring. Highly recommended.

Do not leave Syracuse until you eat at Kitty Hoynes. This was the best food I've had in months and I can't believe I've lived in Upstate NY for over 20 years and have never been here. Start your meal with a cold Smithwick's ($6.00)...More

I would definitely get reservations. Go early street parking is tough on Saturday but there are parking garages close by. If the weather is good leave time to walk around.
