A Really Good Time

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.

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...

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!

Typical pub food and daily dinner specials. Tried the pulled pork nachos and they where awesome! Bar has a few beers on tap and they also have quick draw. Good place to go have a few drinks with the guys or have dinner with the lady.

Really enjoyed the restaurant. It is in a very old building, but well maintained. The food is good and reasonably priced and the menu is large enough that even the kids could find something to enjoy. It is well located right across from the Best Western on 1st Street.

The Press Box is a great place to hang out and watch the game. With monitors at every booth and spread throughout there is no excuse to miss the big play. The food is good and certainly a step above typical bar food. There are many beer selections and the choices change with the seasons. Service is good and the... More

Great choice of beers, great burgers, and great service. Try the onion rings, they are super. They also have a yummy Monte Cristobalite sandwich which they call the Press Box. If you love watching sports on TV then it will for sure win your heart.
