Euclid Family Restaurant

With the Saint Patrick’s day upon us many of us are looking to improve our luck. To this I just have to add that if you’re looking for a great meal then you are in luck, as you need not look any further than the Euclid restaurant. Whether your luck takes the form of an incredible Ruben, the freshest fish, or a mouthwatering prime rib there’s certainly something for everybody at the Euclid. The Euclid is located at the corner of Morgan Road and Route 31 at 4285 State Route, close to all of the shopping on Route 31. They are open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm. Their entire menu is available for dine in or take out. For reservations or to place your take out order give them a call at (315) 622-2750 or visit their website for convenient online ordering at www.euclidrestaurant.com.

You may have noticed that the Euclid has recently received a facelift with a completely new exterior! The beautiful exterior matches the energy of the amazing bar in the dining room that it contains. 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!

One of the cool things about the Euclid is that somehow they manage to cater to everyone! They have a children’s menu aka the Kiddie Korner, and a seniors menu. The daily specials are a real treat at the Euclid. On Tuesdays they have homemade Chicken and Biscuits and on Wednesday they have delicious Sauerbraten served with red cabbage and egg noodles. If you are a pasta lover then you certainly don’t want to miss Thursday’s special of all you can eat pasta! Choose from spaghetti or ziti served with your choice of two meatballs or one sausage. Head to the Euclid on Friday if you are a fish lover and delight your taste buds with the Euclid Fish Fry served with French fries and coleslaw. On Sunday you can choose your special because they have two: Chicken and Biscuits and Sauerbraten! Let the Eucilid do the cooking!

We are approaching the best time of the year to go to visit the Euclid. Clear your schedule this March because it just wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without one of the Euclid’s famous Reuben Sandwich Open-Faced with mounds of thinly sliced corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese grilled on rye or the Red Reuben Open-Faced  which is the same as the Reuben served with red cabbage for an interesting but delicious twist! The Euclid is also the best place to stop on a Friday (whether or not Lent is your thing!) because they have an amazing selection of fresh fish! Whether you are into Lake Perch, Walleye, Haddock, Shrimp, Clam Strips, or even Scallops, the Euclid is the perfect place to get your fish fix! I would also highly recommend the Boom Boom Shrimp which is shrimp battered in a sizzling, savory sauce that brings the flavor and attitude!

The kids, Kyle, and I went for dinner at the Euclid on a chilly February night. We knew we were in for a treat as we can always count on a meal that is consistently good every single time we visit. As we walked in we both commented on how nice the exterior looked. We were quickly seated at a cozy table and greeted by our friendly server. We couldn’t help but notice all of the cheery St. Patrick’s Day decorations throughout the restaurant; it definitely made us smile! Once we were seated and settled in we glanced at the new and improved menu. We noticed that our old favorites were still there and there were additional new dishes that we couldn’t wait to try! For an appetizer, we decided on the Euclid Fried Combo, a perfectly fried plate of Mushrooms, Cheese sticks, Chicken fingers, and a ton of Onion rings all served with dipping sauces. Maggie absolutely loves chicken fingers and Johnny loved the onion rings! We also couldn’t pass up trying the Breaded Garlic Cheese Curds – these golden balls of cheesy garlic perfection served with a side of marinara was a huge hit! 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, or the Cattleman’s Cut 24 oz. This huge cut used to only be available on Tuesday but now you an find it on the menu every day! Of course this is what Kyle ordered; as could have been predicted he devoured it along with his salad and french fries. I have to admit I may have had a bite or two. For my entree I had a really hard time picking because I know everything on the menu is delicious. Ultimately I decided on the fresh broiled scallops, french fries and a salad with crumbly blue. The scallops were cooked to tender perfection and they just about melted in your mouth. We decided to get dessert to go because we couldn’t pass up on a slice of rich and creamy peanut butter pie and coconut cream pie. These were the perfect way to end a perfect meal – a meal that we were lucky enough to enjoy!

If comfort food is what you are looking for, then you are in luck because  you can head over to the Euclid! A meal at the Euclid is just as good (or better!) than home cooked and the best part is you won’t even have to do the dishes. Since the Euclid specializes in comfort food, they have daily specials featuring some of their favorites! At the Euclid you will find delicious food, huge portions, great value and a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Stop in for a full meal complete with a wine selection from the fantastic wine menu or just for a cocktail or a snack. You will never be disappointed with a visit to the Euclid. The Euclid, operating under the current owners, has been a favorite of Central New Yorkers since 1981, stop in today and taste the deliciousness that has stood the test of time.
