Actually, 3 1/2-4 Star Would be more Accurate

We decided to try this place out thinking from it's name it should have great family meals with great family prices. Not the case. The interior was very nice. The booth we sat in was very uncomfortable. The prices were quite high. The Iced Tea we ordered was the worst Iced Tea I have ever tasted. The waitress walked by... More

I do not usually review restaurants, but this was so over the top, I had to. We went to this restaurant last Saturday with a group of 5 people. We had 7:30 reservations. We arrived and were seated promptly. After about 10 minutes, a waitress walked by and said she would be right with us. 10 more minutes and a... More

The Community Restaurant is local legend. Owned by the same Greek Family since the early '60's. Just recently remodeled but kept the same Community Restaurant we locals have all come to expect. Now in it's third generation of the Souzas family they have kept with tradition. If it's down home comfort or Greek food you're looking for, you can find... More

Having never been there,then going there last night with my partner whose family had gone there for years I was amazed. These days it's hard to find a local restaurant that goes through an upgrade,change in menu,and ownership and thrives. Evan has done just that. As business owner's we can appreciate the dedication and commitment that goes into making it... More

I checked out the renovations recently and was incredibly impressed! The bar area is great-- it has a cool retro vibe- think "Gatsby-" and boasts specialty cocktails like Moscow Mules. I loved having drinks there as it felt sophisticated compared to many bars in Cortland. The food has changed quite a bit here as well, and I think for the... More

The Community was just remodeled & updated & everything is terrific. The new bar is very retro & they've got great artwork celebrating Cortland's & the restaurant's history. Food is excellent.

This is our 2nd visit as our daughter attends college here. Both times food has been hot and good. I had an omelet today and my family had pancakes and eggs Benedict. Restaurant is clean and staff was friendly but not overbearing. Prices are typical of a college town restaurant. Definitely would go again.

Greek and American food prepared well at this Cortland standard, freshly prepared and served by quality wait staff. Outstanding Manhattan clam chowder and rice pudding - always the beginning and end of every meal I eat there. We occasionally go there for breakfast after working the night shift, stop in for lunch, or drop by for dinner - always good.... More
