I've been a patron of this place (and former fan) for years and was tremendously let down when we were turned away for dinner at 9:03 pm Saturday 2/23/19. We were told, "Sorry we close at 9". Quick suggestion: take down the gigantic sign sprawled...More

This is a quaint restaurant located right downtown. It's not much to look at inside or out but is perfect for an eclectic out of the way place! The food is very good, large portions and very cheap!

A small nondescript diner with a dining room out back. Good mix of diner fare. Not gourmet but filling good food. Service was quick and friendly.

Moved to Cortland early 1970s. Frank and Mary's was a staple after bars closed hangout for early bird special. Eggs, homefries and toast...maybe some meat! Guess what, it still is. Although the bar days are over, I recently visited after moving away several years ago....More

I love breakfast and I love diners and that is why I chose to visit this diner. I would not recommend this diner at all. The French Toast was tasteless and even the bacon was lacking. The steak was low quality,just not good. The sevice...More

It seems that everyone has visited this diner except me. Finally had the chance to try it out with some good friends. Sat in the back room, a place I didn't know existed and that you can't see when looking at the place from the...More
