Turning Stone Casino area

  • 4

I'm going to be near the Turning Stone Casino, but prefer to eat elsewhere. Are there any half decent... not necessarily fancy eating establishments.

  1. Half decent would be Joel's Front Yard, about 5 minutes from Turning Stone, in Verona. OK steakhouse, bar service, long predates the casino. Actually, I'd give it more than half decent, maybe five-eighths decent, or even three-quarters. It's our usual post-casino dinner joint. Several nice places in Rome, including the Savoy (9/10 decent). Coalyard Charlies in Rome is a blast from the past, maybe 3/8 decent. But Rome is at least a half hour from the casino.

    Joel's Front Yard Steak House
    5548 State Route 31, Verona, NY 13478

    Savoy Restaurant
    255 E Dominick St, Rome, NY 13440

    Coalyard Charlie's
    100 Depeyster St, Rome, NY 13440

    1. Joel's is a good choice for steak....The Savoy in Rome for Italian.

      If you can travel, see my post at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/629812

      If not, I'd stay at the Casino for your meal since the restaurants offer good cuisine/service.

      1. Thanks for the reply
        Any info on Colosseo in Oneida?.

          It's been some years since I've eaten at Colosseo, but I remember it as being ok--not great, but not bad either.
          I like the Franklin Hotel in Rome (301 S. James St.)--not much on atmosphere, but the food is good.
