In Oswego for a week, and a girl's gotta eat
So, help. Looking for well-prepared, decent food. Place doesn't have to be fancy as long as it meets the other criteria. Also, headed back to Syracuse on Friday. My work partner loves a good microbrewery. Suggestions for these requests? THANKS!
I grew up not far away, and the Eis House in Mexico (that's Mexico, NY, about 15 miles from Oswego) always had a very good reputation.
However, looking at their web site now, I see that it's called "Arena's Eis House," which probably means it has new owners, and who know how the food is.
Wish I could help more!
(Cooperstown, by the way, is long ways off from Oswego...)
My sister went to school in Oswego and still talks about breakfast at Wade's Diner. No website but here's the yelp link --
Too bad you're there in winter (for obvious reasons) but also because you can't get to Rudy's -- old fashioned fish fry joint.
I also highly recommend a quick stop at Heid's of Liverpool if you're a hot dog lover -- just a few miles north of Syracuse.
78 County Route 89, Oswego, NY 13126
Heid's of Liverpool
305 Oswego St, Liverpool, NY 13088
If you go to Empire in Syracuse (the food is supposed to be tasty too) you could do a mini-beercrawl by stopping in a Clark's and the Blue Tusk, all Armory Square locations with great microbrews.
