Description: Welcome to Great Food and Service! The Crown City Steakhouse is Cortland’s Premier location for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Our Breakfast Buffet is second to none when it comes to value, selection, and quality. We feature a chef hosted waffle and omelet station every day of the week. That vision rolls into our Ala Carte Lunch menu featuring daily specials, choice steaks, and infamous wraps. The “crowning” achievement is dinner. Dinner’s at the Crown City Steakhouse include completely scratch made soups and sauces; hand cut choice black angus aged steaks; and some of the best pasta and chicken dishes around. The Crown City Steakhouse and it’s staff are here to meet and exceed your dining needs.

“Not so hot”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Took the family here for dinner one night. Figured we would give it a whirl. Took forever to be greeted even though it wasn't busy. The seating area was freezing cold, we kept our coats on. The waitress said that it was always freezing and didn't know why. It took forever to get our food let alone a refill on water. I can't think of one thing to rate as positive. Very sad

“New Years 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Kudos to the staff for the decorations and the meal it was very nice. The only thing we didn't like was the position of the carving stations to the rest of the buffet. By the time we were able to get to the carving stations, the food on our plates from the buffet was cold. Should rethink the position next year. I also didn't like the pumpkin pie or carrot cake for desert.. would have liked to see some fruit or something lighter after a big meal.

“Surf and Turf Special!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

A hearty meal at a fair price. The coconut shrimp appetizer was especially good. The lobster tail was tasty, baked potato was better than average, and the steak was fair.

“Skip it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We ate here because we stayed in the hotel and didn't feel like driving anymore. The service was terrible. My husband ordered steak and after 15 minutes I realized that the waitress didn't even ask him how he wanted it cooked. We had a four course special. Our server did not clear away any plates between courses, so we ended up quite crowded with dirty dishes. Dessert was the best part of the whole meal.
