A Pinch of Craft Beer Epicness at Empire City Casino!


Wow! 99 craft beers on tap all from NY state. Having a Wagner Valley Sugar House Maple Porter to go along with my beer marinated skirt steak sandwich! Yum! What a perfect pairing.

I mean, how can you go wrong when Pinch offers 99 New York State craft beers on tap plus a root beer? You can easily find a beer to your liking that pairs well with anything you eat here. What’s cool is that they are all NY State breweries represented. Great selection!

Pinch_166This new addition to the food scene here at Empire City Casino was a much needed part of the recent expansion of this place. It’s large with plenty of seating along with a fun retro-style decor that harkens back to 50’s diner style. Large bar area with plenty of seating along it. Terrific 80’s rock and hair metal tunes playing. Service was outstanding. Our waiter had no problem bringing us multiple beer samples until we chose the ones we wanted with our meals. Technology in play here as the menu of beer, wine, and cocktails are presented on an ipad set on the table.

Sweet & Spicy Glazed Chicken Wings, Mini Beef Short Rib Tacos, Beer Marinated Skirt Steak sandwich w/fries were all solid choices and prepared well along with the plating. Reasonable food pricing for a casino, and the beers were in the $7 range. Too full to try any dessert. Save for next visit!

I do agree with some others here that they need to promote this spot more, and add signage to the casino to locate it on the second floor of the newly renovated area. It wasn’t too hard to find but surprised how empty it was for a Saturday night. With a bar like this and those beers on tap this should be a destination for any beer snob in the area!

Plus, they offer a growler program here. Damn, I wish this place was closer to where I live!

    Phil, I have to say you take awesome food shots. I don’t know if I would have your patience, be able to take the picture before stuffing my face, when the plate of food is sitting within eating range.
