The menu was basic -- nachos, salads, burgers -- but sitting on the porch was lovely. Well priced. A good place to stop in after a visit to the fort.

Service was slow, menu choices and quality of food were mediocre at best. This was not a peak time. People that came in after us had their food before we did.

I hadn't been here in years and I remember it being a decent place. They are one of the 1st bar/restaurants to be open on a Saturday. The inside is small, but nice and the outside deck is very cool. The service was good until the one server kind of made a joke to my non-drinking friend that they were... More

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 stopped here on a Sunday afternoon after touring Fort Ontario. 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. I ordered a flat bread panini with chicken and pesto (very good) and a glass of sangria (also good). We were all... More

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
