Kyle and I went to Tippett’s Gastropub at Camillus Hills on a lovely sunny evening. We were impressed by the beautiful modern look of the club house. We loved the huge wall of windows that overlooked the rolling hills and water features of the course and we noted the abundance of seating that the club house could accommodate, making it the perfect place for outings and events. Because the weather was absolutely perfect we decided that we would sit on the large deck area and enjoy the scenery and summer. We couldn’t help but notice that both the staff and the fellow patrons were all incredibly friendly. While looking at the menu we joked that with so many burger choices available, the Tippett’s Gastropub seems to have paid a (perhaps unconscious)homage to the land [Scotland] where golf was invented, by including Angus (the cows are another Scottish import) burgers in its eclectic menu. And in a nod to the more infamous side of Scottish cuisine, you can start your meal with some beer-battered onion rings. Unlike the pubs of Scotland however; this gastropub has steered away from deep-frying everything and prides themselves on their gastropub style food. For those that don’t know, a gastropub is simply a pub that specializes in serving high-quality food. We began our meal with an order of the beer battered onion rings; each ring was dunked in a light and crispy beer batter sauce and fried to golden perfection. They were light, crispy and not at all greasy and perfectly paired with the chipotle aioli. For an entrée I decided on the Cobb salad; a plate of leafy greens piled high with grilled chicken, crispy bacon, hard boiled eggs, tomato, blue cheese and avocado drizzled with homemade Dijon dressing. The dish was colorful, beautiful, and delicious.

The Turkey Club with homemade chips.

Kyle decided on the Turkey club served with homemade chips. This sandwich was gigantic and positively stuffed with turkey, bacon, lettuce, and tomato and slather in avocado aioli. The homemade chips were seasoned to perfection. We ended our meal with a lovely slice of chocolate mousse cake.

Our meal was such a delight that we are already planning our next trip to Tippett’s Gastropub where we will certainly try the Flat Iron Steak served with jalapeno peach tomato salsa, spinach & grilled cornbread and the Saranac Glazed Pork Chops with whipped potatoes, spinach, marinated tomatoes, and grilled peaches. Camillus Hills Golf Club is also the perfect place to host your upcoming event. The beautiful scenery makes it the perfect location for a wedding or shower and the spacious course makes it the ideal location for a golf outing, bachelor/ bachelorette party, or even to start your own golf league!  Be sure to check out their website at https://camillushillsgolfclub.com/, follow them on social media for all upcoming events and specials or better yet stop in today!
