Went for dinner with some colleagues, including a business guest. We each ordered something different, of differing styles, and no one was disappointed. Portions were large. I've had the lettuce wraps, the fish and chips, and the shepherd's pie. A colleague liked the "Take Off That Skirt" Steak sandwich. Of those, I most recommend the fish and chips, though none...

It is all relative and Cortland is no foodie mecca. This is a bar really, with some hit or miss items. Buffalo wings stunk but the calamari was quite food. Pork chop was dry, but its accompanying risotto was good. It is that kind of place. Good luck.

We passed through town, staying at the Hampton overnight. Donovan, the desk clerk at the hotel recommended Hairy Tony's. What a nice place, excellent music playing, good service and a truly delicious dinner. We'd definitely eat here again next time we're passing through the area

This place is great. Great food, although a bit high in cost compared to everyone else. Right on main street and near everything else. Been plenty of times and will go again

We received expedient, quality service on a busy night. The food was excellent and the drinks were cold. Our group was 8 and had no reservations. Great experience.

We were excited to go here tonight but left with just average bar food. Everything was good but not great. The lettuce wrap was very good, the mac n cheese was below average. Overall it was just like eating in a bar. And I'd recommend that the cook not have a cigarette hanging out of his mouth while in the... More

My vegie flatbread pizza was tasty (although I've never before had green beans on a pizza!), but my husband's chili in a bread bowl was just so-so.

Enjoyed our lunch here but don't quite know why reservations were required 2 months before family weekend. Its a very popular establishment & food was good.

We visited here for the first time. It was dinner on Saturday and we were two adults and two kids. We were looking for some good appetizers to share. They have no kids menu but our waitress told us they also own the pizza place next door and pizza or chicken strips w/fries could be acquired. We did order a... More

Passing through Cortland, stopped here off of Tripadvisor reviews.If in the area I would stop by again. Solid lunch selections, nothing fancy. Old wood pub/restaurant atmosphere. Good beer selection, staff was very pleasant. Had the fried pickle app(5.0)...best I've ever had and I've had them everywhere. Lightly coated and lightly fries, not saturated with oil...cooked perfectly. Skirt steak sandwich (4.0).... More
