What a tradition it has been!

Curly's Family Restaurant was opened up as a mom and pop shop in 1955. Serving customers who live in the area, but also for travelers passing by that crave some tasty home cooking! In recent years, Curtis bought out his dad in 1992 and reinvented it as an establishment that specializes in seafood and steaks. We have a known tradition of great service and a warm atmosphere which make your visit a delightful one! Our Family friendly establishment has been a staple here in the town of Watkins Glen for over 60 years!
