Euclid Family Restaurant

At The Euclid Family Restaurant, you will find a lot of delicious recipes, not the least of which is their recipe for a great dining experience. The ingredients are actually quite simple: take equal parts fantastic food, friendly staff, and incredible prices and then add a dash of friendly conversation, and sprinkle with ice cold drinks and serve in a warm and cozy atmosphere. The Euclid Family Restaurant has absolutely perfected this recipe! Since 1908 the Euclid has been located at the corner of Morgan Road and Route 31 at 4285 State Route, ¼ mile from Great Northern Mall and close to all of the shopping on Route 31. The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday from 11 am to 9:30 pm, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 10 pm, and on Sunday from noon to 8 pm. For those that don’t know, the Euclid has the best slow roasted prime rib in town and they serve it every day! This tender cut of beef is roasted to perfection every day at the Euclid and you can pick from the 9 oz. house cut, the 12 oz. queen cut, or the 16 oz. king cut.

Have you noticed that some places come and go while others stand the test of time? The Euclid has been a part of Central New York for over 200 years. The Euclid is one of the cool hidden historical gems of our area. Built in 1817 and changing to accommodate the times and customers the Euclid had been a restaurant and an inn, and they proudly boast that it is the oldest establishment in town that is still being used for its original purpose! How have they been a success while others have not? The Euclid has found the simple answer: treat your customers like family, keep your prices fair, and above all else, serve fantastic food!

I think that most people would agree that after a long, hard day at work (or shopping or even just watching Netflix) nothing beats the taste of a home cooked meal. The only thing better than that home cooked goodness is when you don’t have to cook it yourself or even do the dishes! The Euclid specializes in comfort food and have daily specials featuring some of their favorites! On Monday enjoy a scrumptious Pork Dinner and on Tuesdays they have two specials to choose from: the huge 24 oz. Cattleman’s Cut Prime Rib or homemade Chicken and Biscuits. The Wednesday specials are all you can eat! Choose between the mouth watering All You Can Eat Southern Fried Chicken which includes French fries and coleslaw or hot veggies and the All You Can Eat Sauerbraten served with red cabbage and egg noodles. If you believe that one dish of pasta is just never enough then you certainly don’t want to miss Thursday’s special of All You Can Eat Pasta! Choose from spaghetti or shells served with your choice of two meatballs or one sausage. Head to the Euclid on Friday if you are a fish fanatic or observing Lent and delight your taste buds with the Euclid Fish Fry served with French fries and coleslaw. They also have two Sunday specials; choose from All You Can Eat Sauerbraten served with red cabbage and egg noodles or Chicken and Biscuits. The Euclid also boasts a great kiddie korner menu for the little ones, a seniors menu for those that are young at heart, and even a low carb menu for those trying to keep an eye on their waistline!

The Lake Perch Dinner.

Kyle and I arrived on a bustling Friday night. We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff and seated at a cozy table. Our server Becca was super friendly and knowledgeable, she kept our drinks full and even helped me answer my burning question of whether I wanted the perch or the walleye (spoiler alert: I picked the perch!). For an appetizer we decided to split the pretzel with jalapeno cheese. It was a huge warm Bavarian style pretzel served on a decorative stand with a side of slightly spicy but mighty tasty jalapeno cheese. It was enough to share and I highly recommend ordering this appetizer! We also split the Euclid fried combo with a boat load of the best fried mushrooms ever, three golden delicious cheese sticks, 6 perfectly fried onion rings, and 3 chicken fingers that would give any other restaurant a run for their money when it comes to the title of best chicken tenders in town! We also both enjoyed our fresh and crispy garden salad and warm rolls served before our entrées. For our entrées I decided on the Lake Perch Dinner, a generous helping of fried lake perch that were sweet and tender and a side of scrumptious French fries. The perch was absolutely perfect with just a squeeze of lemon! Kyle couldn’t help but order the King Cut Prime Rib. As always this perfectly seasoned, slow roasted prime rib was nothing short of exceptional! For dessert we always like to choose something homemade so we decided to share a slice of coconut cream pie and chocolate pie. These perfect pastries were an absolutely sweet way to end another wonderful meal at the Euclid.
