Euclid Restaurant

Imagine going to a place that makes you feel at home just by walking in. A place where you can see old friends and make new ones. A place where you can always get a great meal that is better than home-cooked because you didn’t have to do the dishes! Where is this magical place that I’m talking about – well the Euclid Restaurant of course! The Euclid is located at the corner of Morgan Road and Route 31 at 4285 State Route, ¼ mile close to all of the great shopping on Route 31. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm and on Sunday from noon to 8 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. Check out their website and go order!

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 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, Calm 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!

Kyle and I and the kids arrived at the Euclid on a snowy winter night but we were immediately warmed up as we are every time we step into the Euclid. We got situated and glanced at the menu even though Kyle already knew what he was going to order! We started our meal with one of my favorites – the soft pretzel sticks served with a warm and slightly spicy jalapeno cheese. I just love this appetizer and could totally order it as a meal! We also ordered the Euclid Fried Combo, a perfectly fried plate of Mushrooms, three Cheese sticks, three Chicken fingers, and six Onion rings all served with dipping sauces. Maggie absolutely loves chicken fingers and the pretzel sticks (just like her mom)! We then received our scrumptious entrées. Kyle of course ordered the King Cut prime rib, cooked to rare perfection. Seriously nothing beats the prime rib at the Euclid! I absolutely couldn’t pass up on the Fried Seafood Platter with fish, scallops, clam strips and shrimp. This meal was heaping with generous portions of perfectly golden fried seafood. We decided to end our perfect meal with a lovely slice of creamy coconut cream pie! Once again we had a great meal at one of our favorite places!

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 has 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! From their kiddie corner menu for kids 10 and under, to their senior menu, their low carb menu and their fantastic daily specials the Euclid has something for everyone. 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.

If comfort food is what you are looking for, no one does it better than the Euclid!
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.
