The Bandwagon is our go-to spot for dinner before an event at Ithaca's State Theatre with its convenient location just around the corner. Even though we had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation for our table to be ready, we were done in time for the concert. The menu is traditional pub fare: burgers, salads and the like. The...

My daughter and I stopped by for an early lunch on a Sunday. The place is very nice and has a main dining area and a separate bar/lounge area. We wanted to watch basketball, so they gladly accommodated us in the lounge. I had a Chipotle chicken sandwich, which was tasty, although it had way too much bread for the... More

All four patrons agree we had fabulous food in a warm atmosphere on a chilly day, with great service to match. I shared my three crabcake sliders (more meat, minimal filler, which made me very happy) with my daughter (she ordered the house-smoked Gravlax eggs benedict and it was a more-than fair trade for one of my crab sliders) and...

I called ahead and was able to make a reservation for 9! A restaurant that understands that a large group actually do not like to show up at a restaurant and be told-sorry there is a 45 minute wait! Our table was ready when we arrived. Our food was very good and the beer was also good. One of the... More

Awesome place for casual drinks and good, local food. Comfortable atmosphere, I personally love that they feature local artists and display their works throughout the year. They have a wide variety of local beers on tap, and make a killer plate of fries on $3 fry night on Wednesdays.

Lots of interesting food choices and a wide variety of local beer. Gets crowded in its basement space, so sometimes there's a wait.

We grabbed beers and fries here before dinner. The beers were good, but not my favorite. The fries were tasty, so I can see why they're so popular. We got a special kind that came with ginger ketchup. I thought it would be kind of strange, but it was very well done and tasty! Bartender was nice, but a little... More

Below street level is a small, friendly place with good, locally sourced food and micro- and craft beers - some their own, and some by other breweries. The beer may not be quite the quality of Ithaca Brewing Co., but it's not bad. The food has never let me down, however. Great burgers. By the way, don't confuse this place... More
