I used to say that nothing beats a home-cooked meal but after a year of pretty much exclusively cooking at home, I have changed my view! Now, I feel like nothing beats a meal that is BETTER than homemade AND when I don’t have to worry about the dishes! Even though my opinions have changed, something like Euclid’s location has stayed exactly the same. As it has been for the last 200 years, The Euclid is 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 Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 8 pm. They are currently closed Monday but be sure to check their website for updated information. If to-go meals are more your speed these days, Euclid has you covered, and they are happy to accommodate takeout orders and they offer curbside pickup. Their full menu is available online so check out their website at http://www.euclidrestaurant.com/.  You can even place your take-out order online, just visit the website and click on “Order Online” and follow the super easy steps! You can also give them a call at 315-622-2750, to make a reservation or to place your order and they will have it ready for you to pick up!

One of my favorite things about the Euclid is that it is the perfect Friday night restaurant all year long but especially during Lent. I really love their selection of fish and seafood. In the appetizer section, they offer fried shrimp, chowder, shrimp cocktail, and fried clam strips. In the Italian dinner section, they offer Shrimp & Broccoli Alfredo served on a bed of fettuccini. Then they also have two menu sections dedicated entirely to Seafood, “Seafood” and “Broiled Seafood” here you will find Haddock, Lake Perch, and Walleye selections along with seafood combination platters and even Scallops Au Gratin topped with melted cheddar with a golden brown finish. I also love this time of year because it seems like you can find corned beef on the menu all over, but don’t be fooled, no one does corned beef boil and open-faced Reubens better than the Euclid. Be sure to come to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with an excellent meal at the Euclid.

Kyle and I arrived at the Euclid on a chilly Saturday in February. We just love coming to Euclid because of the warm and inviting atmosphere. We are quickly seated at a table in a cozy corner, appropriately socially distanced from the other tables and diners. I knew before we even walked in the door that I wanted to start our meal with a pretzel with jalapeno cheese. This thing is huge and could be a meal in itself. It is perfectly paired with the heaping portion of warm, mildly spicy, jalapeno cheese. Kyle was in the mood for something fried so we also ordered the Euclid Fried Combo with a generous helping of Mushrooms, Cheese sticks, Chicken fingers, and Onion rings. Everything was perfectly golden brown and paired perfectly with the four dipping sauces (honey mustard, ranch, marinara, and barbeque.) When we finally called it quits on the appetizers, we were soon served our lovely garden salads and rolls with butter. I love a good garden salad, especially topped with crumbly blue cheese and this salad certainly hit the spot! For our entrees, we decided to stray from our usual order of prime rib (one of us ALWAYS gets the prime rib) but I guess we were feeling adventurous that night! I decided on broiled scallops and I was super happy with my choice! I guess I had no idea just how much 10 oz of scallops was until I saw the giant pile in front of me. The scallops were perfectly cooked and seasoned and I even let Kyle have a few because the helping was so generous. Kyle still stayed in the beef family, but that night he chose the 12 oz. Delmonico Rib Steak and he loved every bite! It was cooked to perfection and nice and tender. He said he would definitely rotate between this cut and the prime rib for our future visits. I was stuffed but I also have a sweet tooth so we just couldn’t skip dessert. Kyle had a slice of warm apple pie and I had a piece of moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. This was a sweet way to end another great meal at the Euclid.

At Euclid, you will always find delicious food, huge portions, great value, and a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Stop in for a meal out and let them do the dishes, order takeout online, or even call and place your curbside pickup order!  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 even a pandemic couldn’t stop!
