Tradition isn't just something that's been around for a long time, it's something above the ordinary that will go on forever with a life of its own. That's a perfect description of Curley's. From the unforgettable red suspenders of founder "Curley" Dello Stritto to the unvarying quality of the diverse menu, Curley's is an Auburn tradition. Curley's has a full range of domestic and imported beers and a tavern menu that includes juicy burgers, chicken wings, world famous pizza and traditional Italian dishes. Perhaps tonight you will want to relax in the comfortable and inviting dining room or enjoy outside dining on the covered deck overlooking the Owasco River. Needless to say, our bar is always stocked! Come in and see what we're all about. We look forward to seeing you!

Decent Food, Nice View

I visited Curley's with my family and we sat on the porch outside. The view of the river was beautiful. The pricing was not too bad considering the large portions. Everyone in my family had enough food for two meals. The wait staff was good and somewhat attentive, but nothing too special. Overall... read more

Everyone in my family had enough food for two meals. The wait staff was good and somewhat attentive, but nothing too special. Overall, the restaurant was just mediocre.

The service was great, the wait staff friendly and the food was superb! I dined there twice last week, each time with a different friend who wanted to go there. We were able to visit and dine in an unhurried, relaxed atmosphere. Curley's has a bar room on one side and a private banquet room downstairs for parties. This is... More

It's really too bad...Curley's use to have great food however now, it's really not very good at all. Go to Osteria Salina on State St. Mall (2 blocks away from Curley's).

Good place to unwind after work and get a good dinner and a few drinks. Service is very friendly and helpful if you have any questions. Prices are reasonable and I will be back when the weather gets nicer so I can sit outside.

The food was very amazing and we had a charming woman as our server. The place is nice looking for a bar and the only problem we encountered was little gnats flying around our table. This was with the doors to the patio closed so that could have been better.

We have driven past Curley's several times without stopping. The front of the restaurant is not very impressive. One day we decided to give it a try. There is one entrance for the restaurant and another for the bar. We went to the restaurant. Once you enter the restaurant it is like stepping back in time to an oldtime classy... More

I was visiting family in the Auburn area and there was some kind of a boating event and the town was crowded. We stopped into Curey.s for lunch and got a table out on the patio. The burgers were good and the service was also good. I'm told that Curley's was a favorite place for my uncle to visit.
