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... read more

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.

The hotel we were staying at recommended this and one other restaurant. Glad we picked this one. The food was very good - I had the fish tacos and they were great. The burgers were good. The beer was outstanding. The wait staff couldn't have been nicer. In fact our very friendly waitress recommended a terrific ice cream place not... More

I found myself struggling to find what I consider to be a reasonably-priced lunch entree. My wrap was not that great and definitely not worth the price. Having been here many times before, I was disappointed by this change. The prices are more in line for dinner but even then, there's places with just as good or better food at... More

Was staying in town for work and met up with my significant other for dinner at Hairy Tony's. We enjoyed the environment, was a bit too dark, tables were low so you couldn't cross your legs but they said they were old style tables so I understood. Each of us got a different style chicken sandwich. Bread was soft and... More

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.... 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 .
