Upstate Tavern

Upstate Tavern

From superb ingredients to local brews, the Upstate Tavern menu offers dishes to suit the heartiest appetites and includes crave-worthy Binghamton Spiedie Rods with tzatziki; finger-licking good Wings with a choice of sauces; and Sliders featuring sharp cheddar cheese from Cuba, NY. Delicious burger choices are plenty and favorite comfort foods like Utica Chicken Riggies, Clint’s Summer Camp Fish Fry and BBQ Glazed Beef Meatloaf will make you feel at home. The culinary inspirations are time-honored, New York-inspired and familiar American classics prepared with the freshest ingredients made from scratch and locally sourced when available.

Not to be missed is Upstate’s wide selection of rotating craft beers from the Empire State’s finest breweries including Saranac, Ithaca Beer Co. and Ommegang, plus our refreshingly cold house brew, Upstate Lager, always available on tap and always a crowd pleaser.

No reservations - first come, first served.

Boozy Milkshakes
Spiked Boozy milkshakes at Upstate Tavern

If you ever wanted to work your way around an entire menu, our Boozy Milkshakes might be the one you can’t resist. This is where our mixologists seem to be showing off – until you taste their creations then wow, here come the flavors.

While boozy milkshakes have become a lot more artful in their presentations, their origin dates back to 1885, the year before German engineer Karl Benz filed a patent for the first automobile. What became a soda fountain favorite by the early 1900s was first mentioned in print as an adult drink containing eggs and whiskey. In 1911, Hamilton Beach invented an electric mixer, and milkshakes took off. Today these classic comfort drinks with a kick have made a comeback, and at Upstate Tavern, the presentation is as whimsical and imaginative as the flavors. Whether you call it a drink or dessert, our menu is full of favorites.

Campfire S’mores Ice Cream, Marshmallow Vodka, Four Sons Toasted Coconut Whiskey, Graham Cracker, Hershey’s Pieces and Mini Marshmallow Rim, Topped with Whipped Cream, Dark Chocolate Curls and a S’more
