Description: 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!

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

We went there...to this restaurant that didn't look like much from the outside. The atmosphere was really nice and diverse with a nice outside covered patio. I had a delicious New England Clam Chowder. The guys had good beer choices. The service was not as good as it should have been. But, that being said, I would definitely recommend this... 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.

The venue was awesome.. We sat out on the patio by the river....ambiance was nice....we ordered the steaks...website isn't updated for pricing so dinner was more on the menu when we fit there.... Jo Jo potatoes were good. Steak was okay. People around us were having pasta. Portions were large. Service was great.

We visited Curley's for the first time several months ago. The food and service were very good. However, the dessert to-go was a severe disappointment: it was a miniscule broken-off piece of stale cheesecake. Yesterday, we decided to make the trip to the restaurant once again. Before leaving, I checked the restaurant's website to be sure that it was open.... More

I love curley's in the summertime, when you can relax on the back deck overlooking the owasco outlet. Very good food, younger crowd inside, usually watching sports, drinking and socializing. A well established hangout in the Auburn area

We were guests at a private party in the basement banquet room. The room was nice but did not allow for adequate seating or for people to get in and out of there seats. The food came out in waves. Each table was handed a big plate of food and told to pass it around. Very difficult when everyone was... More
