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.

Whether 21 or 81 this is a great place. Good food, atmosphere, service and reasonable prices. Marguerites are great.

Great nachos and sweet potato fries. Love the signature banana dip for the fries! Our server was friendly as well. The crab cake sandwich? Worst crab cake I've ever had unfortunately!

I really like this working class place, doing their best to put out quality food. Service was a little slow, but that maybe because if staffing. Food quality was quite good from presentation through flavor. Great drink selection, friendly staff. Most important,,, reasonable prices,,

When we visit Cortland (often) we love to go the Central City Bar and Grill. The food is excellent, the atmosphere warm and inviting, service is great and value is excellent. My favorite is the white chicken chili but the other choices are super and all are unique, well prepared and presented. Just the perfect place to eat and chat.... More

This place had something for everyone. A hot pastrami sandwich, a Rachel with turkey instead of corned beef in a Reuben-style sandwich and a marinated portobello mushroom provided a delicious lunch. Freshly made potato chips and several beers on tap made this a good find.
