Awesome views from porch

My husband and I visited here for our anniversary on a Tuesday evening. We did not have a reservation but that was not a problem. We were seated on the porch area which has great views of the river. The decor inside is a bit dated. Our waitress was very friendly. She seemed to be the only... read more

We stopped by for dinner on a weeknight as we had never been there before and we were looking for someplace new, and what a pleasant surprise! The place is beautiful, the food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. We will definitely be return customers.

Excellent meal in comfortable surroundings, with view of the Susquehanna River in Owego, NY. Had done the obligatory research on TripAdvisor but decided to ask a mature woman (probably a local) what her favorite restaurant was. Without hesitation she said "The Cellar, and they make the BEST drinks!" With that, it was decided. My dinner was al dente Ziti with... More

On a vacation trip with friends from 3 different states and decided to take them to an upscale restaurant. In the town where I grew up. This was the wrong choice! We ordered 4 meals of ribs and 1 Beef Wellington cooked medium. All of the ribs were served cold in the. Middle, warm at the perimeter with hot bones.... More

We had been to The Cellar many years ago, and we stopped going because we thought the food too pretentious, not well prepared, and very expensive for what we were getting. It is still expensive - BUT - the food on our last two recent trips was delicious! The scallop appetizer was wonderful, cooked to perfection. Our pary had salmon,... More

First time here. Food was fresh and delicious. We ordered the pan seared scallops which my husband loved, cooked to perfection! I had the Veal Bartolucci which was very good. Bread was very good. It was oyster night so we each had the raw oysters which were fresh and tasty. Service was slow and we had arrived at opening but... More

Started off with the most delicious brie I've ever had, then had a very tasty burger. Only complaint was that they gave me a tiny goblet of water and didn't refill it for nearly the whole meal.

We hosted our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at The Cellar, and it was nothing short of wonderful! We had Duck, Salmon, pork chops, and a great gnocchi vegetarian dish. The appetizers were chosen by Bob - all yummy - especially the Reuban balls, and the truffles were melt in your mouth delicious!
