While the Press Box is great for sports, the food is average bar style food. The food tasted great that I ordered but if you are looking for something other than traditional bar food, you will be disappointed. If their menu variety increased it would get a better rating.

Good food relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. The restaurant had a good mix of locals and out of town folks. The bar was well stocked and the bartender was friendly and informative. We went there twice and both times had consistently good food and service.

My wife and I recently moved to Oswego, and because there is not much to do in this town, we decided to take a tour of all the restaurants, and write reviews for them. Cool atmosphere, fun crowd, and respectable food for what it is (sports bar). Still keeps a feeling of small business owner, without feeling franchisey, as some... More

Stopped for a quick bite on a Saturday night in October after fishing. First impressions were all positive: outside facilities for warmer weather; Crowded restaurant/bar; and no waiting. Waitress that seated us recommended the clam chowder, indicating that all soups were made fresh. Because of the hour, most of us ended up just getting a sandwich and a local beer... More

I hardly ever write poor reviews, but this time it's deserved. I ate lunch at the Press Box yesterday with two friends. The French dip that I ordered was possibly the worst sandwich I have ever eaten. The meat was old, tough, flavorless, & heavily salted. The bun was stale. The "dip" was flavorless. If I could hail the waitress,... More
