Yes, I understand this is not a primarily vegetarian or vegan restaurant. This was my first time visiting as a vegan. I was vegetarian the last time I visited and had a decent meal. As a vegan only option was lettuce wraps. The vegetables especially the tomatoes were not fresh and the sauces that came with them were either bland... More

Our party of 6 was sat quickly on a Saturday afternoon and received our food fairly quickly. Good pub food and a nice selection of dishes from a basic burger to noodles or fish dishes.

We were very pleased with everything about Hairy Tony's. The food was good, the prices reasonable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The nachos and buffalo chicken dip were especially tasty. Will visit again next time in Cortland.

When the college is not in session, this is a nice place to have dinner with your family. When the college is in session, the food is still great, but you may want to enjoy an earlier dinner on Friday or Saturday.

Went for dinner with some colleagues, including a business guest. We each ordered something different, of differing styles, and no one was disappointed. Portions were large. I've had the lettuce wraps, the fish and chips, and the shepherd's pie. A colleague liked the "Take Off That Skirt" Steak sandwich. Of those, I most recommend the fish and chips, though none...

It is all relative and Cortland is no foodie mecca. This is a bar really, with some hit or miss items. Buffalo wings stunk but the calamari was quite food. Pork chop was dry, but its accompanying risotto was good. It is that kind of place. Good luck.

We passed through town, staying at the Hampton overnight. Donovan, the desk clerk at the hotel recommended Hairy Tony's. What a nice place, excellent music playing, good service and a truly delicious dinner. We'd definitely eat here again next time we're passing through the area

This place is great. Great food, although a bit high in cost compared to everyone else. Right on main street and near everything else. Been plenty of times and will go again

We received expedient, quality service on a busy night. The food was excellent and the drinks were cold. Our group was 8 and had no reservations. Great experience.

We were excited to go here tonight but left with just average bar food. Everything was good but not great. The lettuce wrap was very good, the mac n cheese was below average. Overall it was just like eating in a bar. And I'd recommend that the cook not have a cigarette hanging out of his mouth while in the... More
