Enjoyed our lunch

My wife and I stopped in Cortland for lunch. We were lucky to have found the Community Restaurant which apparently has been around since the 1930s. The staff was friendly. Waitress was pleasant and very helpful. I had the special - fish sandwich and macaroni and cheese for $8. Served open faced... read more

I go to the Community every once in awhile. They have Greek and American food. They changed the menu kinda recently, but I've always found something I like on it. Good food and service. The atmosphere feels very relaxed and even when they're busy it seems kinda quiet and calm.

We had dinner at The Community tonight, and it was delicious. The place wasn't terribly busy, the service was good, and the fried haddock was outstanding. This is a good old standby in Cortland, and we are glad that it has again hit its stride – it provides good meals.

We had a repast cocktail party at the Community Restaurant and I have to say that the food and service were very good. The appetizers we had were all cooked perfectly. We had the chicken fingers, crab filled mushroom caps, meatballs (great sauce), filo triangles, assorted cheeses and fruits and rolls. All of them were really good. The wait staff... More

We've been here a lot over the years, mostly for breakfast. This year while passing through town we stopped in and found a renovated dining room and a lovely bar area. The food is good. Nothing to write home about, but it's good and the staff very friendly and eager to please.

Located downtown on Main Street, the Community is an institution in Cortland. When I originally came to Cortland, the Community Restaurant was where I was taken for part of the interview - to impress me. It's like a classy diner from the year 1900. The fancy woodwork makes the seats resemble boxed pews in an old Episcopal Church. The menu... More

In town to visit family. Very good experience. We had drinks in the bar then moved to our dining area. Server was attentive. Pace of appetizer s was good and entrees were hot and delicious.

What perfection today! The mimosas were strong, the menu perfectly planned, best eggs Benedict I have had in years, fresh fruit really fresh and 3 choices, high quality thick but light french toast, perfectly crispy bacon, fresh baked cinnamon rolls that you could taste the yeast in slightly like Grandma would have made, I could go on. What a lovely... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant. It has been in the community forever, and I have eaten here in the past and had terrific food. The Community has been recently renovated...and it looks fantastic. Although still rather dark, it is much lighter and open feeling than it was before renovations. There is quite a bit of seating now. We... More

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
