Community Restaurant

10 Main Street
Cortland, NY 13045

(607) 756-5441

The Community Restaurant, located in historic downtown, is a Cortland landmark, serving steaks, seafood and Mediterranean cuisine for over 80 years. Boasting CNY's largest bourbon collection, the Community is built around incredible foods, vintage ambiance and personal service. 


Originally called El Dorado, the restaurant eventually became known as the Community Coffee Shop, but its name was changed to the Community Grill in 1930 when Cy Costes and Anthony Nicholson took ownership. Tony Souzas became the owner in 1963 and changed the name to the Community Restaurant. Tony and his brother, Bill, continued the restaurant's tradition by serving fine food to area residents in a friendly atmosphere. Evan Souzas has been the current owner since 2000 after his uncle Tony and his dad, Bill, retired and moved back to the Old Country – Greece.
