DOn't look for fancy here, just fine food and fun. Try the pool table and have a drink in the back. Service was quick, menu was varied enough to eat there more than once, bartender was attentive.

“A Gem in the Finger Lakes”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

We went to the Fargo based on a recommendation from a friend. We were in Ithaca and went the extra few miles and it was well worth it. Located right in Aurora, it has an old time pub feel inside. The decor is simple and dark with hitorical photographs on the wall that are a pleasure in themselves. We ordered soup and lunch and even though I'm a big eater I struggled to finish. It was a huge amount of food at an extremely reasonable price. The soup was excellent (Clam Chowder) and the lunch was delicious (a BLT with homemade chips). We will definitely make the drive again to try some other dishes. If you are in the area (or even the region), do yourself a favor and stop in.

“Another Unexpected Surprise.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My GF and I were spending the afternoon geocaching around Cayuga lake when one of our searches brought us to Aurora, New York. We were anxious to take a break and my GF spotted the Fargo Bar & Grill and said words I love to hear her say. "Looks like our kind of place". Those words are special to us because they symbolize what we like most on our day trips. That's a Bar & Grille with local charm and character. If it has that then we go into and hope for the next best thing and that is great decor, good food, cold drinks and a personable bartender. We always sit at the bar and drink and eat and we grill the bartender for all there is to know about the establishment and the locale.

Well we went into the Fargo and it was everything we wanted it to be. Including the most hospitable and informative bartender we've come across. We learned so much about the Fargo and especially the Town of Aurora. It is a great little town with history that will amaze you. If your reading this and you are in the area do yourself a favor and stop in Aurora and see the town, but do stop in the Fargo and enjoy this little jewel of an establishment.

Rest assured we will be back to the Fargo again.
