Average pub in downtown. The decor felt dirty and run-down for some reason. The service was good but not outstanding. I had the deep fried turkey burger. It was innovative and tasty. There was nothing wrong with the place. It was just average.

Glad to hear you had a good time, and enjoyed the portion sizes. We do have a number of draught lines that rotate for seasonal beers. I'm sure we will be carrying shiner again soon. Thank you for your post. Cheers Dave Wood

Traveling through from Chicago and found this place by accident. The food was outstanding. I got the prime rib melt and my wife got the bourbon burger. Both were excellent. Dillon was our server and was quick. Highly recommend any time stopping in Utica.
