We were greeted with smiles and warmth that continued throughout the evening with our server. The food was good...we had a variety...burgers, pasta, veal. It was casual & comfortable.

I have never had pasta from here that I have enjoyed, unfortunately. I guess it's because we have so many good Italian places to choose from in Cortland that have much better tomato sauce. In any case, this place is the best place to go for a cheeseburger in Cortland, and their hand-cut fries are great too! They make a... More

I went to the Hollywood as a teenager and still go there regularly. Good place for locals and college kids to get a good meal or have a few drinks.

Seated promptly, I had the Philly chicken, and my wife eggplant. Both were fixed to perfection. Bread came with dinners we ordered. Had a desert. Plan to spend $20 per person. The first time I ate hear it was very disappointing. My wife convinced me to give it another try. My lesson avoid this restaurant when they are busy, and... More

We hit the Hollywood Restaurant on 9/30/2014 during a NY Finger Lakes fall foliage trip, arriving around 6:30 on a Tuesday nite. We had been to this restaurant several years earlier as my daughter went to college in this town. Prompt seating by a friendly hostess, and we had cocktails in our hands 5 minutes after seating. I chose the... More

Recently,we took family to the Hollywood Restaurant in Cortland, NY. Our experience there was mixed. While their sauce is delicious and the pasta cooked properly and the portions are huge, many other food items were over cooked. The veal and eggplant parmigiana's were both over done in the fryer, as were the fries served with a hamburger and a BAKED... More

We stopped in as a recommendation by a local hotel. The service staff was friendly (I mean if I was drinking at work, swinging back a cold beer right behind the bar- I would be in a great mood as well). I wasn't really bothered by the outdated decor of the place because that is their theme, so much as... More

Sandwiches and pasta are consistently good as are burgers too. The atmosphere is classic with figurines from the 50's. Waitress was well trained and most friendly and warm.

We were in town for a mini college reunion on a Saturday night. Our group of 10 was seated in the back room which was great since it was quiet. The service was terrific! Very friendly waitress who never made us feel rushed. We sat there for over 2 hours! I have to say that their balsamic vinaigrette dressing was... More
