A pleasant Sunday evening, wanting to have dinner with family, but where to go on a Sunday night? Hairy Tony's has a memorable menu and provides consistently good food. The New Orleans Pasta is my favorite, but my husband had it tonight, I kept stealing some from him. Family was very pleased with... read more

The selection of food and taste is decent. Portion sizes and prices are average. Service is usually good. Some of the names of food items are off putting like-"take off that skirt steak". That's not clever. It just makes me uncomfortable. And it just adds concern to the rumors in this town that the management is sexist and harasses the... More

A former colleague was in town visiting family and we spent the day together. After coffee and local wine we went to Hairy Tony's for my 50th birthday. I taught the owner's son an was greeted at the door with a smile and a slap on the back and shown to a table out on the sidewalk of Main Street.... More

OMG!!!! Get the nachos!!! They are a HUGE serving. We were almost tempted to hare with the family at the next table. They should rename it the mountain of nachos. The food and atmosphere were both great. My whole family HIGHLY recommends a vist to Hairy Tony's when you are in Cortland.

was there for dinner. Doesn't really look like much on the outside but so worth the trip inside. Really nice staff. Dark inside but very comfortable don't let the name deter you. Had appetizers and not one complaint about any of them.

Man - weird. We popped in here (actually, I badgered my wife to come here) because of the name. Let me say, the place is "sophisticated dive bar" - meaning, it's actually a very well run restaurant DISGUISED to look like a dive bar. Food, beverage choices plentiful and extremely tasty. Big screen LED's, floor to ceiling mirrors, chalk board... More

We ate at Hairy Tony's during a trip to Hope Lake Lodge. The pub-style food was good with a nice variety. The wait staff were friendly and very helpful.

We had a delicious lunch on a nice sunny day in Cortland. Dining outside is certainly not quiet (it is right on Main Street with car traffic as well as people wandering around) but it was really nice. Actually, I prefer dining outside as it is rather dark inside. We both had salads. Not only were they aesthetically pleasing they... More
