Casual food in a wanna be upscale setting. Staff friendly and attentive but quality of offerings just so so. Since the name was steakhouse, I had steak. Cooked to correct order temperature but of less than remarkable quantity.

I was looking for a place to take my mother and her boyfriend out to a sit down dinner. I conducted a web search and discovered that there are many fast food establishments, but very few real restaurants. I saw a listing for Crown City Steakhouse, and read the reviews (which said it was pretty nice - boy, were they... More

We come to Cortland occasionally as my wife grew up there so we know the restaurant pickings are slim. We picked Crown City with some trepidation. We have eaten here a few times with mixed results. This experience goes on the negative side of the ledger. When we first sat down we were told the bar was closed. No reason... More

Waitress was very welcoming and even made a comment on how quiet it was offering us a choice of tables. Food was adequate and basic, nothing my fancy but service was good

I have had dozens of great meals here. I love the Breakfast Buffet when it is operated properly. Sadly, there appears to be a lack of effort into managing a successful operation here. I love this place when things are going right. Please bring in a consultant to watch service for a week or so. Please improve. The employees really... More

We had steak with crab cakes. They were both good. The sweet potato fries were great. The Bailey's coffee was excellent.

On a whim, I stopped in to have dinner and I was blown away by the incredible service, the quality of my meal and the pricing of the menu items. Mark behind the bar pours a mean drink and also is very friendly and entertaining. The French Onion soup was out of this world and the Rib Eye steak was... More

Had a lovely steak dinner, cooked to perfection. My daughter had the chicken fritters which were chicken fingers and tasty. Breakfast, omelet station was quick and food was very good. The biscuits were hard. The wait staff was attentive and very courteous.

Friendly staff. Omelette was great, and the young man who made it was very personable. Buffet line items were so-so but nothing negative other than the eggs which husband said were like rubber.
