Came here with my boyfriend for a quick drink at the bar. I didn't try the food here, so I can't make any comments there. Overall it seems like a nice place to grab a quick bite or a drink

We stopped here during the NCAA playoff games for a beer and some snacks. The beverage selection was very good. The food left something to be desired. The spinach artichoke dip tasted like someone opened a jar of pre-made dip and warmed it. There were a TON of chips and only enough dip for about half of them. The chicken... More

Went there today. I've already reviewed the sandwiches and beer selection in the past, both excellent. This time I am acknowledging the bartenders for recommending IPA's that I like, cheerfully providing samples and a perfect pour every time. So my service rating of 5 is for the bartenders.

The Tusk has become one of our favorite spots in Syracuse. It offers 69 delicious craft beers and a great selection of sandwiches made with the best Italian bread! Friendly bartenders complete the package making the Tusk a definite stop!

...I love tapas and wine... the tusk had the sweetest server at the bar that we chatted with who took our order. We sat ourselves at a beautiful carved booth and drank amazing wine. It wasn't too loud and the meatballs were good. I will definitely be back!

A bit confusing if you've never been. Flag a bartender, get a drink or three, order your food at the counter and find a seat. A bit unorthodox but it seems to work. We arrived 2 hours before an SU game, place was jam packed. We hovered around a group that looked like they were leaving and snatched a cozy... More

My favorite bar in Syracuse hands down. Chris the bar tender was great and very friendly. They have 69 beers on tap so anyone can find something they like! I got a sandwich to go and it was amazing as well. Cant wait to go back.

The food here was much better than the typical bar food that you find and the beer variety is substantial as well. It's definitely one of your better options in Syracuse. There are some bars that have more drink variety but I think the food here is worth that tradeoff
