Our lunch was delicious. Wide variety on the menu. Loved the fall decorations! I ordered the fall roasted vegetable soup and the mother earth salad... Perfect!

We arrived on a Saturday with a party of seven and were seated immediately. We ordered a couple of appetizers and they were delicious. My wife and I had two different types of burgers. Both were cooked to perfection and the flavor was unbelievable. Another person had the chicken and biscuits and was quite pleased. Another person had the steak... More

I always walk away hungry when having lunch at Hafners. Today was no different. I ordered the quiche. Small piece, no crust, comes with nothing but a single strawberry. Price including tax and 20% tip was $9. Their lunches do not come with soup, salad, sides, or even bread. Portion sizes are often small. A few sandwiches come with sides.... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant, and I am so glad we listened. It seems to be a little hidden gem. The service was everything you could hope for, the food was great! We did not sit on the bar "side" but both areas seemed very relaxed and a very pleasant atmosphere.

We stopped overnight in North Syracuse on our way upstate. Luckily, the hotel's website mentioned this nearby restaurant as a good place to have dinner. When you first enter, it looks like a decent sports bar. But then you are taken into the separate dining area, which is rustic and cozy. The dinner menu has a wide range of choices,... More

Onion soup was very good. Beef on weck was awesome but they did put horseradish on plate boo. Cuban was bland. WARNING My credit card was not returned could have been a mistake but I don't think so

My only negative is that I've lived in CNY mega years & that I've not been to Hafner's before. Dinner with family (including baby granddaughter) & wonderful meal & service. Will definitely plan a return visit. Menu has various options to please all tastes. My husband chose prime rib, & other pasta dishes with generous amounts for take home to... More

We used to live in Syracuse and recently went back for a family wedding. I made time to have lunch with friends and landed at Hafner's for one Sunday lunch. Great place to linger, chat and eat. I especially enjoyed the chicken and biscuits! If you find yourself in the North Syr or Liverpool area this is a nice local... More
