My husband and I recently stopped at The Cellar Restaurant on our way to Toronto from New Jersey. We read that it was ranked #1 in Owego. We observed a nearly empty dining room. The hostess asked if we had a reservation. We told her we did not, that our hotel staff informed us we didn't need one. She stated... More

Ok...was first on the cellar level of the Front St. Owego building but came upstairs to match the quality of the food served. Lunch or Dinner we've always enjoyed a well planned menu, a nice presentation, and broad wine and libation presentation. Great for the family, for business, or special occasions. Always have left with compliments to the chef!

This is one of favorite restaurants, and we try to eat here whenever we are in Owego. We recently visited and enjoyed the seared scallops. Not being big eaters, we usually order only one course. Spaghetti squash was served with the scallops and complemented the dish. I enjoyed a glass of chardonney with the meal. We were first seated in... More

My husband and I enjoyed our recent dinner at The Cellar. The house salad was excellent and we both had the scallops with cauliflower au gratin which were also very tasty. We enjoyed a bottle of local wine too. The service was great and the atmosphere was cozy. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back.

I have eaten here twice and have enjoyed it enough to return. The last time, I ordered the pot pie and it was absolutely delicious...but the portion was quite small. Nice, clean place with pleasant staff. Give them a try!

The Cellar has a wonderful side salad and the best French Onion soup I have ever had! They also have special Sunday dinners for two...$17.95!

First, Owego NY is NOT the first place that springs into your mind when looking for excellent food. Owego is a sleepy hamlet on the banks of the Susquehana River. Imagine my surprise when I was served one of the best meals I have ever had in this little hole in the wall place. Chef Bob and his wife Sandy... More

We stopped for dinner at the Cellar. There were five tables of two taken, including us. The were quite a few drinkers at the bar. We ordered, and actually had a tasty small salad. But our waitress came out apologizing for the delay on our entrees, promising them soon. We waited over an hour and our food never arrived. We... More

What a treat to have such a restaurant in a small town. A great spot for travelers that is right off the exit with a dark, rich ambiance that is a throw back to days gone by. Efficient and friendly staff and a very interesting menu blending many tastes.
