Perfect beer, incredible food.

It was a bit hard to believe turning off route 81 in Cortland for lunch was going to pan out and then, wham, what a great call. You walk into what might be called a dive and it just turns better and better. You are greeted by a friendly staff, seated at tables that set on floors from long ago.... read more

Came in and was able to order a pizza from the business next store (I guess they help each other out) and ate it in Hairy Tony's. The staff was very friendly and the pizza was great.

I think Harry Tony's does a great job, but is lacking some more vegetarian friendly items that might cost a bit less. They're friendly and the owner cares about his guests. The food is great, just wishing for some more modern items.

I would recommend this place staff are friendly and very organised and the food is also good. It look a bit scuffy from the outside but that part of it charm. A place to have a drink or it .

Hairy Tony's is a downtown pub popular with college students. Some locals also like to go there. The food is okay, but don't eat there if you have a social conscience. For several years college & local young women working as waitstaff have quit or been fired against the backdrop of managers expecting sexual favors of those who work for... More

College town...college is now out. Wife and I decide not to make the drive out of Cortland and to keep it "local". A cruise down Main St. and we passed 3 other restaurants. In the past we have had great service,value and a real feel that they care when they ask how is your meal?( at Harry/Tonies). Well.....Porterhouse steak, nothing... More

Had dinner one Friday night recently when in town for a game at SUNY Cortland. Great bar and food, and fun atmosphere. The next day, Tony personally took care of catering a tailgate at SUNY Cortland for 70 people and could not have been more helpful. We called him the night before which didn't give him much time to pull... More

My wife and I had no idea where to eat while passing through Cortland recently and just by chance stopped in at Hairy Tony's. We were very glad we did. While other places we passed seemed to cater more to the college crowd, most of the clientele at Hairy Tony's seemed a little older. That isn't to say it wasn't... More

Had an amazing selection. Portions were good sized...some may think it's a little pricey (not much more than avg) for some things compared to other restaurants but they do give you a good portion. Being it is located right next to a popular college bar, I never thought of going here while visiting my daughter at college, but I have... More

We arrived at Hairy Tony's late for dinner and expected a bit of a wait since SUNY Cortland had their open house that day. The manager/owner was very nice and apologetic and the staff were friendly. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back.
