Stop here solo while traveling for business. The men you had plenty of choices and the servers were excellent. I had the New Orleans pasta which was simply outstanding it reminded me of something my father made. I definitely will return.

We'd been looking forward to trying Hairy Tony's for some time. The pub itself is nicely decorated, but as others have said, it's quite loud and the service was okay. Our waitress seemed somewhat impatient when asked questions about the menu. The main courses (the fish & chips, the seared tuna & the chicken schnitzel) were good. The appetizers were... More

Walking into the restaurant, I was a tad bit taken aback because it is informal to the extreme. But hey, it's a college town. While my wife strolled up and down Main St., she gladly left me to order dinner doe us to take back to the hotel and knock down a few drinks. The first thing I ordered was... More

Stopped by here for dinner on a Saturday, wasn't familiar with the area so we took a chance on Hairy Tony's. The food was spectacular, I got a pasta dish and my Fiance got the ribs. We were both blown away by the quality of the food. On top of all that it was super affordable. Wish we lived closer... More

The food choices are extensive, the service is awesome! A bar/restaurant that is quiet enough for conversation.

The food is good and you can carry on a conversation. It's a good bar and a place you can meet friends, have a drink and chat a bit. Menu is not elaborate but sufficient for a downtown bar. It's especially nice when students are out of town.

stopped here at an off-time, sat outside, watched Cortland drive by on a pleasant mid-summer, school-off weekend... all items were fine and service good, got some good-natured jazz from proprietor, who really isn't hair at all... nice pulled-chicken salad with good cole slaw, excellent "summer pasta," smithwick's ale a bit warm but perhaps that's the way they serve it in...

We were visiting family in a nearby town and wanted to take them to lunch. After checking reviews of casual restaurants in Cortland, we decided in Hairy Tony's -- despite the name! We were greeted warmly by Tony (with a buzz cut) and seated promptly. ("Hairy" is a huge wooden figure by the front door --sorry, should have taken a... More

Stopped in fot diner on my first vista to the crown city of Cortland, NY. Rumor had it that Hairy Tony's was a great place to eat. Our waitress Daniel was great, she even asked why i did not eat all my beet salad. I prefer not to complain to the server, she did her job, very well, the kitchen... More
