About Us


Our History

   Steele Hotel, as it was first known, was built in the 1830’s by Ransom Steele. He was one of the original residents of Apalachin and one of the most influential people in the early development of the small village. Steele ran a mercantile store and was Apalachin’s first postmaster.

   Throughout history, ‘The RST’ , has had many designs and served many purposes; from living quarters to the area’s premier watering hole to a training facility for young men during the Civil War. Now, the Ransom Steele Tavern is the best place in town to enjoy live music, good food, and a cold drink. Stop by and be a part of history in the making.


Our Food

   We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and we are committed to using fresh, homemade ingredients. 

   All of our burgers are 1/4 pound, handmade using 100% Angus Beef. Our Corned Beef is slow roasted and shaved in house, a perfect pair with our house-made Russian Dressing. Not to mention our Creamy Balsamic dressing, which goes great with any of our fresh salads!


Parties & Events

   Our restaurant is available for private events: birthday parties, banquet dinners, bridal showers, retirement parties and more! We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event.  Send us an email today!
