Several friends of mine and myself made the 1 hr. trip out to the one on the other side of Syracuse yesterday...The food and service were above average, as were the prices, but not too drastic.The interior of the establishment is done up rather well, if you are somewhat of a motorhead...All in all, we would go back there sometime in the future if one wasn't built closer...It was somewhat confusing to get there initially after going through the exit 39 tollbooth, but that won't happen again...I would still recommend Marble Hill Inn's wings and 2-for-1 Budweiser's until 7pm if I didn't feel like driving(or riding w/someone if I'm drinking)all the way to the Lakeland/Van Buren area...P.S: The developer of this restaurant site must have paid only peanuts for that piece of land, as it is very undeveloped around it and in a remote commercial/recreational area. You will know what I mean when you pay a visit to it. And yes, it is my humble opinion that the old Chenango site on N. Genny st. would be a great location for one-- waaay easier for people to get to from here anyways!

Restaurants are a great way to initiate other businesses to move into the area. When traveling along the Thruway or searching the internet for the locations of widely-know restaurants and finding that these establishments are in Utica, it's great for the area. The problem with most of it, is thess places are usually put in the wrong locations, or we tend to have too much of the same stuff in such a small area. How many McDonald's & Dunkin' Donuts can we have in 10 square miles? Dine-in restaurants also encourage people to partake in other events after dinner or even serve as an after-party location. Which all promotes business throughout the area. We have a great amount of space available here, and could really take advantage being in middle of so many great tourist attractions. With Niagara Falls, New York City, Boston, etc. all no more than a 3 hour drive from here we need to attract tourists, and restaurants will encourage that. People of this area love to eat, but need something different, and people not of this area may want something they are familiar with. We need businesses here, it's half the reason this city is so depressed financially/emotionally. It's sad to take a ride down Genessee St through the "Downtown" and see such an uninviting area that could easily become the opposite.

Less than 10% of what you read on Topix is fact. This is just another of the dreams posted here.

I imagine the opening of Olive Garden @ HP is also a dream. Once Roefaro leaves office, the whole HP issue will become nothing more than a bad dream.
