Dasher’s Corner Pub is a full service retro-style restaurant located on Main Street in historic downtown Homer, NY. Dasher’s is known for its many accolades including our award winning New England Clam Chowder and the “Best of the Best” people’s choice award for steak in Cortland County 2015.
Dasher’s Corner Pub features a diverse menu of steaks with design your own custom toppings, whole fresh live lobsters, an array of seafood, a daily “Chef’s Fresh Fish” special, properly prepared Prime Rib of Beef, a variety of oysters and shellfish, burgers, salads, sandwiches and kid’s meals.
Retro dishes such as Steak Diane, Oysters Rockefeller, Coquille St. Jacques, and Lobster Newburg from a 100+ year old recipe, are amongst our top sellers. We don’t deviate from traditional recipes as our philosophy is “These dishes have achieved classis status for a reason, and who are we to argue?” We source as many local products as possible, keeping everything fresh, tasty and healthy. We buy from local vendors as national food distributors are not welcome here.
Our décor pays homage to Homer, New York, incorporating the original bar and backbar from 1905 with other local antiques, artwork and photographs of and from the area. Even our tables are handmade from a huge black cherry tree that stood alongside the old Homer Academy (which burned down in 1959) and more recently the Homer Elementary School.
Original light fixtures hang above the bar and our ca. 1865 handcrank cocktail mixer that was unearthed in our basement’s dirt floor. It needed welding and bronzing but it stands proud once again on our bar waiting to shake up our famous Whiskey Sours. The bar boasts a well rounded supply of bourbons and other spirits including some hard to find brands and vintages. We have 20 local craft and global beers on tap. Our wine list is second to none in the area. From NYS wines to huge California Cabs we offer wines for every occasion and every budget.
However, we feel our well trained, well informed friendly staff is our biggest asset and they’ll ensure a comfortable, pleasant, well serviced experience to each and every guest.
