Known for their hamburgers

Comfortable bar, attentive bar maid and the bergers are the best. Nice area to sit outside on their covered deck. I'm not keen on the "sports bar" theme in the main restaurant, TV's all over. Not too much trouble as their deck is the best place to be anyway.

Seating is nice outside on the coverage deck, also not as noisy as inside. Nice fire pits available to sit at. The fried shrimp was nothing great, fries were good, and was served with plenty of tasty coleslaw. The wings were very good and plentiful. Friendly staff. Walking distance from Oswego Marina. We will return again and try the burgers.

Can't say enough about how friendly the staff at the press box was. We were on a motorcycle trip to the Islands and stopped in Oswego for lunch, and found the press box. They were extremely hospitable and food was really good! We will definitely stop there next year when we make the trip again. Press Box Staff- kudos and... More

It was an overcast, cool day threatening to rain; we chose to dine outside because of the table-top fire pit under the shelter of the front deck, and we loved it. Food was well prepared, nice menu and drinks selection; service excellent; we tucked in to our meal cosying up to the fire outside, in the light drizzle and open... More

A very inviting restaurant that will not leave you wanting for a thing. There's not a bad seat in the place and the outside seating in the summer is fantastic as well. The menu offers something for everyone's taste buds. Soups, salads, burgers, specialty sandwiches, and entrees are always good. The Monterey Foccasia sandwich is always a crowd pleaser. Great...

If you are in Oswego and staying at my favorite hotel, the Best Western Captain's Quarters, walk across the street to the Press Box for a great place for a casual meal. A great atmosphere and a great place to be with friends and Family.

Had a late lunch here after touring SUNY Oswego with our son and our Meckes who attend school there. Nice little sports bar on the lake at the Port of Oswego. Burgers were good. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere was great. No free refills on club sodas though.

Attentive service, great food. The Barbecue Cayenne wings are a must-have! Also had the carrot cake. A huge slab of inhibition-killing goodness!
