We went there on New Year's Eve and were seated with a very short wait. They had a special menu which looked wonderful but we were just looking for a lighter meal. They had no problem providing us with the regular menu. My husband's sandwich was good but probably the same as many other places. My steak salad was wonderful.... More

I took my daughter here, for a late lunch, during the week. The restaurant was not busy at all. For some reason they sat us in the bar area, which was a bit strange, since the entire room was empty. It should have been a sign of the service to come. The server was very nice, but incredibly slow. We... More

We walked in, no problem getting a table in the bar area. Service was great Matt was our server, many great selections and lots of menus to read a bit overwhelming if it is your first time. Food was all good and served hot.

Tasty Food With Good Service That's what it said on the little paper tent on our table. Yes, KIrby's delivered on their promise. We were in Syracuse visiting my companion's 95-year-old cousin, whose favorite nearby lunch place is Kirby's. She likes the food and appreciates the easy walking access. The restaurant is not fru fru or a culinary school showcase--it... More

I have simple rule, if I have a sub-par experience, I wait 6 months to go back. Over the last few years its happened a few times here. Slow, (but friendly) service was mostly the problem. We went back for my wife's birthday(money has been tight, and they have a birthday special). Our server(Jamie) was excellent! Drinks never went unfilled,... More

I don't live in the area but have eaten at Kirby's in the past when traveling through as my mom in law likes the ribs. I have always had an ok (average) experience. This most recent time was not so...the restaurant appeared to be needing a good cleaning from top to bottom including the menu's which were food stained. Although... More

We were going to stop at subway for a quick bite to eat but saw the Happy Hour sign in front of Kirby's so we changed plans. Had a poor experience there a a couple years ago so we gave it another chance. Long story short, the iced tea smells like sulphur and apps took awhile to come out considering... More

Sorry about your experience, Matthew, but thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback.
