As many of you may know, I have been posting deals on kid's meals and happy hour specials. While doing my research I came across one restaurant that I was told had plans to close. Thank you for Priest P on Twitter, I was proven wrong. After discussions with him and Randy the manager on Twitter, I agreed to check the place out myself and as you can tell by the title and picture, that place was The Distillery and I am thankful I took the time to check them out.
Why am I thankful when I should likely be unbiased? Not only do I like that more places are open because also competition means good things for all of us and it means more jobs and food options in the area. Also what I found out was that this place (located at 3112 Erie Blvd East in Dewitt) has some great food and drink specials that I am more than happy to share with you all as I type this from The Distillery itself. I spoke with Dave the manager on duty and was impressed with all the great deals you can find here.
Want a sports bar atmosphere with TVs so close to your booth you won't struggle to see it? They have it as this was the view from my seat and if anything, I had to zoom back to get it in the picture and I have to admit that I love this idea!
Oh so you want food and drink specials? Oh my friend have I got some stuff to share with you and let's be honest, this blog is called Cuse Cheap for a reason. I came in about 5:30 PM and as I was ordering a drink around 5:40 PM, my waiter Ryan informed me that between 3-6 PM, I could order a tall draft beer for the price of a short one as you can see below (along with what looks to be a great deal if you are looking for a place to enjoy NFL game day).
But what about the food options you may be asking? Well let's start with the kids. They have menu items starting at $3.29 for a salad all the way up to $6.49 for burgers or chicken. On Tuesday, kids eat for 99 cents with the purchase of an adult full priced entree. Not sufficient enough? How about free? On Saturday and Sunday, your kids can get the Kid's Scramble (two scrambled eggs, back & toast) for free with an adult brunch menu entree purchase. Don't believe me? Here is the list of their daily specials that includes this great deal and more.
How about a link to all the great specials I have listed and more including a Birthday Club, Anniversary Club, Happy Hour, Senior's Discounts and 1/2 Price appetizers after 9 PM with the purchase of a beverage? Click this link here to learn more about those great offers and here for if you are interested in enjoying their brunch deals Saturday and Sunday until 3 PM. You can also check them out for Trivia Night on Wednesdays and for Syracuse games as well and they offer free wifi (just have to ask the staff for the password).
I would like to personally thank Twitter friend Priest P, my waiter Ryan, management staff Randy and Dave and everyone at The Distillery as well as apologize for not including them in past posts due to bad information. I can assure you they are open and worth the visit. My visit was very friendly, my food was great (I had Fry'd wings, though they also offered grilled wings if you prefer it that way, and a Swiss Mushroom Burger with fries) and I will definitely be back to take advantage of more specials they offer as time allows. If you are looking to tap into good times and good deals, be sure to visit The Distillery and try it for yourself.
