Have only been here for lunch, but Curly's has great food with a very good cost/quality factor. I have never left there hungry. Wait staff is always prompt, attentive and friendly.

From the moment you walk into Curly's the aroma of well cooked food is apparent. The visit to the menu may take longer than you might expect with all the choices, but all in all it is a welcome sight. Little hint, the chicken and rib dinner is way too much to eat. The ribs must have been cooking for... More

My husband and I have eaten here on our two visits upstate. The food is really good and reasonably priced. We always have great service here too!

The food here is very good and it is a nice place to eat with the family. It has a very family feel to the whole restaurant.

My brother-in-law and his wife visted us to go out to dinner. They had lived in Elmira years ago and were familiar with Curly's. They hadn't been there in years. When you walk in they have a very large menu board with many selections listed. This was new to them and they were impressed with the different items listed. The... More

I went here for the first time with my wife and kids. It was for a family surprise party and we had a large rear section to ourselves. Service was fine. I liked most of the food but the coleslaw was incredibly dry. I've been told how good it usually is so I would get them another try on that.... More

I meet with an early morning (7am) networking group at this restaurant each week. They provide a private area for our meeting, service is prompt, and menu selection is varied meeting the needs of each member of the group.

One would think that with a name like "Curly's Chicken House" you'd find A LOT more choices as far as chicken goes. As it was they had Chicken and Biscuits, Roasted Chicken, grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders and chicken wings... but NO FRIED CHICKEN! I was hugely disappointedand and rather shocked not to see that on the menu. Be that... More

We have eaten here several times and the place seems so run down and the service isn't much to be desired.The waitress never checked back with us to see if we were comfortable and were enjoying our food. The bathroom is very small and not the cleanest. The food is very good though! Can't beat their coleslaw, it's out of... More

Curly's has been around for years and it basically stays the same. The service is fast and you can't beat their coleslaw. The BBQ chicken is great too. They could use some extra cleaning around but at least you always know what to look forward to!!
