I went to your restaurant and as soon as I walked in, the black cook seated me and smelled like pot. The restaurant smelled like pot the whole time I was there and after I had left, I drove by him out back and he was smoking pot. To me that is so unprofessional and I think I may have... More

Service was terrible. At least at our table. The tables around us had constant service, but our server would leave for long periods of time. The quality of service was no better than a diner, far from what I would expect at a "steak house". There were also too many strong odors, from chlorine from the hotel pool to cleansers... More

This company has a bad reputation out there but with its new staffing it is truly improving! I suggest if you have had a bad experience with this restaurant you should give it one more shot!

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.

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

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.
