We go up to Cortland every year to see the NY Jets training camp. We go to Hairy Tony's for lunch and dinner, cannot get enough of this place. The staff is great and super friendly. They have an excellent food selection, the baseball sirloin and Cobb salad are my favorites. My husband highly recommends the mac&cheese and the chicken... More

My husband and I and his parents recently went here for lunch while on vacation in the mountains. The place itself is eclectic and cool with a huge chalkboard menu and huge faux whales hanging from the ceiling. The waitresses were friendly and fast. However, the food wasn't great. I got the nachos muy Grande and, although they were HUGE,... More

After spending the day in Cortland to visit SUNY Cortland as a prospective college for our daughter we decided to walk around town and check out the local shops and establishments. After asking some locals where to go for some good pub food we were directed to Hairy Tony's and we had a very nice meal. It seemed other parents... More

Wanted to take the family out to a typical American pub night out for dinner. Saw some good reviews on tripadvisor so decided to try it. Everyone had a nice dinner...very filling. Service was great and very satisfied. Wings were great! Calamari and burgers were outstanding. "Take off the skirt sandwich" was excellent! Overall, great way to see the nice... More

The food is absolutely delicious! When the appetizer came I ate all!! It was really good. The salmon is the best! I took all of it and wanted so much more. My brother got the chicken schnitzel and it was crispy outside and soft inside. Me and my sister got macaroni and cheese but it turns out it wasn't that... More

My husband and I and are 3 young children dined here for dinner while staying at a local resort. This is really a bar with restaurant seating, yet they do have high chairs. The food is excellent and even though there is not a children's menu, there are options that children will eat.

It's a small bar turned restaurant with about a dozen tables, some out front on the wide sidewalk. A few TVs inside, nothing extravagant. The servers appeared very busy. I ordered the special of the night, petite filets with a mushroom demi glace, medium rare. It seemed to take some time and when it came out it was burned on... More

Doesn't look like much from the street but this is the best place in Cortland. Fantastic food and great service. I had the Cowboy Steak special and it was amazing and a great value. My brother had the Trout special and gave it two thumbs up. Can't wait to go again when back in Cortland.

We were driving to Canada from Pennsylvania and stopped here because it was way past lunch time and we saw people sitting at tables in front of the place on a Sunday afternoon. It was on a one way street so we had to go around the block twice to park. I was expecting bar food but was surprised at... More

We arrived Saturday evening (5/24) and were seated immediately even though the place was PACKED. My only complaint with the service is that the waitress did not keep up with the drink refills but then again she seemed to be by herself and it was just a matter of catching her attention in between her "Olympic runs' to the kitchen....
