Central City is always a good place to go. The food is good. The service is good. They have lots of TVs that show sports events.

Great spot for lunch or a casual dinner. They have the BEST white chicken chili around and the friendliest staff. They are very accommodating and prices are reasonable.

A regular go-to for weekend lunch. Varied menu, good service. More than bar food. Far better to make the drive to downtown Cortland than to settle for the Perkins/Denny's/Friendly's and fast food at the exit. We visit about every two weeks. Never had a bad meal and they accommodate even the little ones in our family.

Great casual spot for a burger and a couple of beers. Usually our first choice when we are in Cortland. They have a huge draft beer selection with quite a few rotating craft beers available. Also a very large and varied menu with reasonable prices. We have never had a meal there we didn't like.

The bar is nice and the atmosphere is clean. The Menu's could be updated and less coated with some sort of sticky substance. The menu is vast for a bar - and the food is excellent. The staff is efficient and friendly. We will definitely be going back.

Tasty meals in a pub environment. Reasonably priced. Friendly service. A little hard to find but worth the search.
