Skoogs is a small pub and grill. My favorite in Utica. Everything is delicious. I love the wings and the beef sandwich. The staff is top notch. I’ve heard good things about their Bloody Marys

My experience has taught me to always call the establishment to verify Holiday hours. Seems some places close earlier than usual depending on demand (and severe weather).
