Went here for lunch. Was given a friendly greeting and seated immediately. Waitress immediately gave us our menus and took our drink orders. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Checked on us appropriately. Meals were large portions and delicious. The only negative would be that it looked a bit like a bar scene. They even held the door for us... More

Its interior decor is so different from the surroundings outside the door. very comfortable. One of the BEST burgers I've ever had in my life ( 48yrs) as well as other... More

If you are looking for a pub with good prices, friendly service, and good food... this is the place to be! There are several restaurants in downtown Cortland...but if you are looking for a casual place to watch a game, have a few beers, and eat some comfort food...this is the place for you. We were there with a friend... More

This is the local friendly pub with great food, great staff, 25 Taps with new brews monthly, and friendly people... yes at a great price. outdoor patio in the summer, a short walk to Main Street. It's the sure thing!

Somewhat local, somewhat college. Always good food and drinks. Party room available. Sometimes busy on the weekends but worth the wait.

Stopped here randomly on our way home from Syracuse. Found it on GPS. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. We had the ahi tortilla app and the prime rib special. But the prime rib was more like a boneless rib steak to us. But it was excellent, tender and great taste. Even the veggies were fantastic.... More

Enjoyed a couple of great local drafts and a nice dinner here. Would certainly be back. Had to wait a bit for a table. But it was a Saturday night so you might expect that. Steak and large baked potato were good. I would return.
