This is a really fun place to go! You can either sit at the bar or sit at tables or booths. Their specials are great and there is a varied menu. Their home made macaroni salad is wonderful as well as the Press Box sandwich. It is their take on the Mome Cristo sandwich. Their homemade soups and chili are... More

Came here today with grankiddies and parents and sat outside. Perfect spot for 10 people. We were greeted by our friendly waitress, she took our drink orders and quickly returned with them. We then ordered our meals and they came in a timely fashion. My order was delicious but you can't really screw up eggs and toast that came with... More

We had prompt service - got glasses of ice water right away, which was appreciated on a hot day, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient.

Stopped in for lunch and had a good meal, a nice beer and a comfortable atmosphere. The pulled pork nachos were outstanding. Topped with lots of cold slaw and melted cheese...the nachos are always a winner.

Stopped for a late lunch before fishing the lake on a charter trip. The weather was nice, so we decided to stop at the Pressbox and sit outside. Initially no one came over, so I found a hostess to seat us and let a waitress know she had a table. The menu was basic and the food and drink prices... More

We often make reservations to watch a game with friends and family. They have some tasty game food like their buffalo chicken nachos which hubby always gets and great salads (Mary's salad is my fav) for those more conscious of the waist line!

I have been here many times and it's one of my go to places to eat in Oswego. It is very relaxed and has a great bar set up. The food is great and the service is as well. It is perfect for any occasion. I would highly recommend.
