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

and we ended up at Hairy Tony's. Dark, pub type place with college students in attendance. Large table and a big menu to chose from. I had the sausage, pepperoni flatbread pizza. It was tasty...maybe a little overdone, but had not problem eating it. Friends had pasta dishes and salad and everyone loved their meal. Plenty of beer choices and... More

My wife and I ate dinner at Hairy Tony's at the recommendation of the hotel clerk. We expected from the dark bar and pub atmosphere that the food would be the usual fare of burgers and fries. I had Strawberry Grouper over a corn purée and Vinegarette Mushrooms! My wife had filet mignon with crab topping, asparagus and red mashed... More

Service was great. Food came out nice and hot and within a few minutes. Pulled pork sandwich was tasty and plentiful. The sweet potatoe fries were very good. They had a hint of maple syrup and that gave them a different taste. Delicious I might add! The bartendar needs a little more practice in making a margarita where it's not... More

Passing through Cortland for the night and found this gem here on trip advisor. I'm a picky gin martini drinker and hubby likes his borboun manhattan. Both were good. We had the pork belly special. So tasty and could cut with a fork. House salad huge and Delish. Fish and chips were generous and I had the special New Orleans... More
