“OK in a pinch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Visited Paddy's because 1) it was late at night, and 2) I had a coupon from restaurant dot com. I ordered some garlic chicken wings. They were VERY chewy and the sauce tasted like buffalo. I inquired of the waitress if it was actually garlic, and she checked with the cook and reported back that it was indeed garlic. Well, fine, but while I ate the waitress was excited to see how I liked the wings because apparently Paddy's is known for their wings. Naturally, I lied and said they were really good -- how could I not? I also ordered some garlic parmesan wings and they tasted much better (if still chewy). Paddy's has local beers on tap, so I might pop in just for a cold brew next time.

“Friends at Paddy's Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Nice local flavor bar with good food and a lovely group of locals. Off the beaten path but worth looking for.

“A refreshing twist of Irish culture in Cortland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Paddy's was recently taken over by a new owner. The first thing that stands out is that it's clean. Very unusual for this bucolic town. Secondly, the staff treats customers like guests and values their business....again, an exception to the rule in a town where the average education level is 9th grade and 50% of the residents are on some form of public assistance. Prices are reasonable and the wings are as good as any I've had in Buffalo. Keep up the good work!!!
