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.

MaryAlice10512, I'm sorry nobody ever came to take your order! That's definitely not they way we want to do things around here, and I'll definitely mention this slip-up to my team. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! Many thanks, Susan B., Owner More

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.

VermontCapecodder, I'm so happy to hear how much you loved our chicken parm and our micro-brew selection! Thanks for dining with us, and thanks for this fantastic review. I hope you'll get a chance to visit us again soon! Best, Susan B., Owner More

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

I was there for my birthday and order the chicken parmigiana. When the waitress brought it to our table it was overcooked and burned. It tasted like cardboard. She never came to see how our dinner was and I had to tell her I was unhappy with my meal. She did take it off our bill but I will never... More

Stopped here for lunch while visiting Auburn. Not much to look at from the outside, but a very pleasant bar/pub restaurant atmosphere inside. There were very few customers at that time of day; our server was sweet, attentive and quick. I had a terrific hamburger and my wife had a Buffalo chicken sandwich that she loved. Moderately priced. I have... More

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!
