Hullar's Restaurant stands to be one of the oldest restaurants in town. On July 27, 1818, Eben Blakeman purchased land and built a tavern and hotel at this location, which was then called “Manlius Four Corners."
Since then, it changed hands many times before Jacob Hullar bought the former "Wands House" on July 19, 1908.
Jacob was an accomplished restaurateur and hotelkeeper, having formerly owned the Cazenovia House and the Park House, both in Cazenovia. He and his wife, Mary, resided upstairs while operating the tavern in upper Fayetteville.
After serving in WWI, Jacob C. Hullar II returned to join his father in the family business. In 1924, he married Doris Goodfellow, whose ancestors were among the town's earliest tavern owners.
With prohibition taking effect in the 1920s, the property was converted to a house, confectionary store, ice cream parlor, and filling station.
After prohibition ended, the property returned to use as a tap room, grill, and ice cream shop, once again becoming a popular gathering spot. During the 1920s, Jacob Hullar II also operated the Oneida Lake Club in Jewell, NY.
Hullar's Restaurant has remained in the Hullar family and is now operated by Jacob "Jake" C. Hullar III and his family: Maria, Susan, Nanette, and Nadia.
