On our recent visit to Curleys on the deck I found it quite enjoyable. Service was very good by the friendly waitress and sitting outside by the river was quite enjoyable. Nice pub menu with plenty of choices with modest pricing. Overall the food, service, atmosphere and price were very good.

Absolutely the best pasta and service in the city of Auburn. The rest of the menu is excellent and the appetizers are enough for 3-4 people. Located on the river outlet from Owasco lake, there is outside, inside and bar seating.

Who expects to eat a pepper hot antipasto salad? Yes, it had jalapenos on it, which I pushed aside, thinking I was safe. However, after a few bites my mouth was on fire. Was this some sort of joke? Who does this to a salad? Also, the ham they used was just cold cuts and the salami was a few... More

852gerardv, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your antipasto salad. They typically come with both peppers and cold cuts, so it just sounds like it wasn't your thing. I hate to hear that you didn't feel well after. I'll make sure we're letting our guests know exactly what's on the salad when they order it. Thank you for... More

No complaints it exceeded my expectations! Wife had Chicken P.. I got the black and blue flat bread steak salad .. Clam chowder was spot on as well.. If your looking for fine dining this is not the place, if your looking for good food nice environment and a fair price look no further ! Would come back for sure!

Monday night. Saw people waiting for tables. We opted for the patio seating. Got menus and water . . . . and then . . . and then . . . and then nothing! No waitress! We got up and left.

The Chicken Parm is to write home about... Generous portion, tender, wonderful flavor with pasta that you can actually taste. The micro-brews came from New York State, Pennsylvania, New England including Vermont's Magic Hat. Curley's is located close to downtown Auburn, with ample free parking across the street.

We visited on a Thursday night and were seated promptly in the main dinning room. We were given a choice of a table, or a booth, but we elected for a table as the booths were a little tight for some of the people in our group. There is an outdoor covered seating area as well, and I understand also... More

Curleys has been around for so long I sometimes forget how good the food is. Visited twice in the past week; once for lunch, once for dinner. Both times the service was excellent, the food well prepared and well presented. Entrees ordered included Baked Scrod, Open Reuben Sandwich, Meatball Sub, Roast Beef Au Jus, Shells Parmagiana. I'd recommend them all.... More

We walked inside to catch lunch. The bar was half empty...nobody attended us and after 5 minutes we decide lo leave. Maybe we were not part of the select customers entourage

Description
Tradition isn't just something that's been around for a long time, it's something above the ordinary that will go on forever with a life of its own. That's a perfect description of Curley's. From the unforgettable red suspenders of founder "Curley" Dello Stritto to the unvarying quality of the diverse menu, Curley's is an Auburn tradition.

Curley's has a full range of domestic and imported beers and a tavern menu that includes juicy burgers, chicken wings, world famous pizza and traditional Italian dishes. Perhaps tonight you will want to relax in the comfortable and inviting dining room or enjoy outside dining on the covered deck overlooking the Owasco River.

Needless to say, our bar is always stocked!

Come in and see what we're all about. We look forward to seeing you!
