We enjoy trying new places for us during this great week. We had not been to Curly's in years...we have missed a lot. New owners and chef. This chef is a keeper. Three of us went and we tried different items on the special offering. The truffle Chicken brought raves and two of us had the pork chop, stuffed with... More

We had dinner at Curly's for the first time in over a year. There had been a change in chefs some time ago, but the food was very good.

Staying in Lackawanna prior to Bills vs 49ers game on Oct 16. Headed out to find somewhere to eat and stumbled across Curlys. Couldn't get a table but sat at the bar, which was fine. Service was great, except for small error in order. That was fixed by an adjustment to the bill. The food was great _ would recommend... More

Had a nice visit with my honey and loved this place. Stuffed peppers are to die for. The bartender made it perfect. Tell her Bob from Forghedaboudit in New Mexico said hey.

Had dinner here. Attentive service. Broad menu. Had home-made black bean soup and jerk chicken dinner. Food was excellent with lots of effort in the made from scratch effort. Highly recommended.

We had no expectations on the food as this was our first visit. Everything we had was very high quality. My husband had a seafood linguine with a pail full of mussels, as well as shrimp and scallops. The Conch Fritters were the highlight. Not many places up north ever seem to get them right! The atmosphere was very nice... More

I posted the Salmon with Blue Cheese topping. The fish was really good but the fresh made bread and the key lime pie were absolutely unbelievable. I was also impressed one of the new owners\managers (Athena) took the time to say welcome and check on my food. So many restaurants managers come up and ask how your food was and... More

We ordered the jerk chicken dinners, Curly's speciality, and it did not disappoint! Not as hot as real Jamaican Jerk in Jamaica, and a bit sweeter, but with a complex combination of hot peppers which started slow but worker up to fairly fiery. But there's much more that just Jamaican on the menu, so I guess we'll have to come... More

Went here for my birthday with my family. Was not busy for a Thursday, however waited 5 min to be greeted by an absent host. 15 min wait go take drink order, then another 15 min wait for the drinks. The entire dinner took literally 2.5 hours. Wanted dessert and coffee, but didn't want to wait anymore. Food was good,... More
