Kamacaze wings are amazing. Wings are huge. Brocoli cheddar bites are out of this world. Staff friendly, attentive and quick. Prices fair. Clean business. A Peru favorite!

After spending the better part of our day hiking, we were starved and drove into Utica in search of somewhere, anywhere, to get a bite to eat in the middle of the afternoon. Skoog's Pub was the first restaurant we came to and they had a table so we stayed. Good selection of beer and pub food on the menu.... More

Good food, decent atmosphere, and an OK visit in an area not familiar with. Will probably get in the area again, sometime in the future, and will stop by.

We Visited after a day hiking. The downtown area is very nice, and this bar/restaurant was as well. My kids had burgers, and I had a grilled chicken sandwich. Food was not bad, wasn't great either. Pretty average bar food. Service was really good. Mozzarella sticks were pretty good! Wish we have tried the wings, the mini tacos were average.

Parking in front on... More
