Went there for my birthday. I ordered the roast beef with gravy. The gravy was cold and the roast beef was ok, but nothing special. For the price I wouldn't return.

We visited as a family with our three children. They told us 20-25 min wait but we were not seated until almost an hour later. The roast beef was ok but certainly have had better (Charlie the butcher anyone?). The horseradish was bland and old and the portions were surprisingly tiny. I mean really small. Other tables around us made... More

The beef was tender and flavorful and served medium just the way we ordered it. Kudos to the new owners for now serving mashed potatoes made with real potatoes! The salads that came with the...

Thrilled to see Eckl's has reopened, went there on a Sunday for a fantastic beef on weck, another member of our party had a tasty prime rib. German Potato salad was exceptional. Service was great even though they were busy, waited at the bar for about ten minutes for a table.

Well, my husband and I had read that it would re open. I think the person that purchased the restaurant also was having withdrawal from this place. That's why he purchased it. We went on a Saturday evening and the place was mobbed. But we needed a beef on wick fix. Everything was wonderful. Orchard Park really missed this place.... More

This restaurant closed this past year after being open for decades. They had great roast beef sandwiches on kimmelweck rolls. Very old fashion like taking a step back in time. Sad to see them go.

Then years that this restaurant was open - it was always a beehive of activity with many regulars filling the tables. The beef on weck sandwiches were the best ever!

Eckl's is now closed. When is was open, it was a great meeting place for families,quiet lunches and dinners and was really great for business lunches. They were especially known for their good food and will sorely missed by the people of orchard park and surrounding communities

Description
We would like to wish new owners Jim Cornell and Ted Smith the best of luck and thank them for keeping the Eckl name and spirit alive. Their enthusiasm, experience and business acumen are sure to make the reopening of Eckl's a success. Jim and Ted's desire to keep the restaurant as close to what our family's intentions and traditions have been for nearly a century are of the highest importance to them. We would like you to share in their enthusiasm with this endeavor. Good food, good drinks and good friends will continue to be the Eckl's mantra. So please come and enjoy again as we are happy to know that our family legacy will live on. The Eckl Family Dale Sr., Shirley, Dale Jr. & Denise
