What gem of a place! Baseball streak cooked to perfection. Few more potatoes wouldn't go a miss but the size of the steak made up for it. Fast friendly service and good prices.

We were in Cortland for our daughter's college volleyball tournament. During a break, in between matches, we were able to find time to have lunch at Hairy Tony's. It was not crowded, but the food and service was great. My wife and I have the fish and chips and our daughter had the steak sandwich. We also had the Fried... More

I always enjoy my meal - I would say it is our favorite place to eat in Cortland, great salads, good pub board, tried the pad thai and it was much better here than at the Asian restaurant in town. The owner is almost always there - he is working and making sure the restaurant is running smoothly. Good selection... More

Busy pub with pub food plus some hearty dinner choices. Lots of different flights beer, wine, spirits, and mixed. We tried the chicken riggles (a local favorite) which is a pasta in a wine and cream sauce. Chicken was a little tough but the sauce was decent , on the tangy side. We also had the Shepard's pie, good gravy,... More

This is a restaurant that could do well in the higher standard NY metro area. Great menu with many different options, many of which have sound classic but you read the description and they have a kind of sparkle. Excellent taste and the staff is also on point. Waiting time is minimal every time I have visited. Compared to other... More

Lunch at Hairy Tonys was good. It is a darker pub, lots of character with old cushioned bar stools, 70's music and good food. Sandwich and wrap were very good and if you like sweet things potato fries with maple syrup were a hit. Shepards pie was a little disappointing - mostly mashed potatoes, but it tasted good.

Honestly I wasn't excited about going to dinner at Hairy Tony's. I'm not wild about a bar atmosphere. But we had been told that the food was excellent, and we were looking for a change, so we gave it a try. I am glad we did! My husband had the Pad Thai, and it was excellent. It was also a... More

We stopped here to take our college son out to dinner. It was a great atmosphere, we were treated nice, weren't pressured to leave and the food was delicious! So many creative ways to eat foods that other pubs just aren't doing!
