Always a fun time...

With family in the Cortland area, this is my favorite place to go and have a meal and a few drinks. The decor inside kind of reminds me of something that you would see in the Seattle area. It has a turn of the century nautical theme...brass and chalkboards for the menus. They have a huge... read more

Fantastic beer choices. Love the beer flights. Great recommendation from a friend. Food was very good and arrived quickly. Feels like and is a bar but much better. They had some really interesting specials. I'd make the trip if you are staying anywhere in surrounding area. Prices very reasonable. Owner was a hoot and very gracious. We will come back.

I'd heard about this place from a friend and decided to git it a try. I don't get to Cortland often, but when I do, I like to try a different place to eat. They offer huge 6 oz. beer flights, lots of choices, including NY breweries. I had the chicken riggies. I'd been wanting to try them since I'd... More

I visit Cortland about once a month and with a plethera of eating establishments, it's difficult to select a good one from a not so good one. After taking the advice from some colleagues (and the reviews on Trip Advisor), I tried it. I will be back! Servers are prompt and friendly. I had the pulled pork sandwich, which arrived... More

Great food. Great atmosphere, great owners. Food is excellent quality. They offer unique specials, different types of dishes and also common food that most people are used to. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. Definitely a gem in Cortland.

Our family enjoyed this pub style restaurant a lot. They have a great selection of beers and ciders, and plentiful and well made comfort food. We'll definitely be repeat visitors next time we're in Cortland.

Visiting from Canada and looked at previous reviews before we picked Hairy Tony's. Very surprised by the healthy menu choices. I had the lettuce wraps with chicken and would definitely order them again. My husband and son both had the ribs- let's just say they were licking their fingures.

We were there on a Saturday, about 8pm and only had to wait a minute for a table. The atmosphere is really great, we got seated in the back by the kitchen. The only annoying part is the light that comes on whenever food is ready. My husband and I faced the light while our friends faced the front door,... More

This place earns it's reviews. The owner is very hands on and everything is run correctly. The food was very good and lots of selection for beer and wine. The staff is well trained and efficient. I am sure that if you are with a group, you can have some fun here.

Recommended by our hotel; my husband and I both had the rib platter that included sweet potato fries drizzled with maple syrup, the best collard greens I've ever had to accompany the 1/3 rack of St. Louis style ribs, that were melt in your mouth delicious. I had one of the wine flights, they offer 4 different ones, that I... More
