We are very pleased to finally announce that we have reopened on a limited basis! For the time being, we will be on a strict reservation-only basis, with parties limited to 8 guests maximum. Moving forward, we will be open Wednesday through Saturday, with seating for dining from 5pm-8pm Wed-Thurs, and 5pm-8:30pm Fri & Sat. Unfortunately, we will not be open for lunch until further notice. We apologize for any inconveniance caused by these changes, but our priority must be to provide excellent food, service, attitude and atmosphere in a safe manner.

Please be assured that we are taking every precaution possible to insure a safe and healthy environment for our guests and staff. As we move towards the new normal, you will see some unavoidable changes due to the COVID-19 protocols and the New York State-mandated 50% occupancy limit. We face additional challenges with staffing and procurement of top-quality products. We will need to move slowly.

For the safety of all our guests, we require that you wear a mask at all times and maintain social distancing with the exception of when you are seated. Please arrive punctually for your reservation, but not early, as groups waiting in the bar cannot be permitted as of yet.

Our Executive Chef Vincent Knittel and his culinary team are creating new and exciting dishes weekly with an emphasis on seasonality and whenever possible local products.

– Gratefully, Tom Tiffany


Exceptional food, traditional service, fine wines and an extensive selection of exceptional spirits have made the Scotch 'N Sirloin the ultimate dining experience in Syracuse since 1967.

Whether you are enjoying an in-house aged and cut steak in the main dining room, a flatbread pizza in the bistro, or a drink at the bar, the Scotch is an ideal place for couples, families, groups and business gatherings. For dining room reservations, please call (315) 446-1771. We accept all major credit cards and gift certificates are available.

Great Food

What makes the Scotch different? Not compromising. Enjoy Midwest USDA Choice Steaks aged in-house and hand-cut daily by a full-time professional butcher before being served perfectly to your order. For seafood lovers, seafood is delivered fresh from the Boston Seaport, then expertly prepared in-house to create signature dishes.

The attention to detail continues with appetizers and desserts that are prepared daily and cooked to order. The experience is topped off with professional and traditional service from seasoned bar and dining room staff.


The no-compromise attitude extends to the bar. We take great pride in our full service bar which is adjacent to our large circular wood-burning fireplace. Featuring one of Upstate NY’s largest selections of single malt scotches and small batch bourbons, a variety of specialty liquors, classic cocktails, and up to 20 wines by the glass, you can pick a favorite classic or try something new.

In addition to wines by the glass, the extensive wine list has been a perennial award winner of the prestigious Wine Spectator Magazine’s Award of Excellence and Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Award of Distinction for over ten years. Thrillist named the Scotch as one the 13 best bars outside NYC for its collection of “bitters, creative cocktails, and innovative food.”


Looking for something on the lighter side? Want to meet some friends after work for cocktails and appetizers? The casual atmosphere and lighter fare found in the fireside lounge known as the S2 Bistro is just for you. Located adjacent to the bar, the seasonal bistro menu offers items such as soups, salads, flatbread pizzas, sliders, hot prime rib sandwiches, small plates designed for sharing – or not.
