Five of us went to this restaurant because it had an outdoor seating area. That was the only good thing. Food service was extremely slow. Waitress told us our food was coming soon, after we had waited almost an hour and we still waited another ten or more minutes. Plus the food came in dribs and drabs. The special of... More

Came out with a few friends for dinner last night. The restaurant wasn't very busy, but service was lacking. Our waitress brought the menus out and didn't even say a word to us, slid menus down the table and then took drink orders. The margaritas all had wayyy too much salt (not only on the rim, but in the bottom... More

We never even got to eat here - stopped in at 10:15pm with my Mom and daughter for late night snacks after Bingo - even though we were seated in the dining area, away from the bar, we were asked how old my daughter was (she is 18) and were told we could not be served with a person under... More

Had lunch here out in the patio. Found out this restaurant had a previous history as a birthing house, or at least that is what we were told. Service was great but it did seem to take a long time for our meals to arrive from the kitchen. When it did we were not disappointed. Friendly staff. Typical bar type... More

Had never been to the wizmer house bt had heard the food was good and we were not disappointed. I had the crepes and they were delicious. My husband was gluten free and they had gluten free bread for his really good hamburger. Would go there again.

We made reservations on wing night for the upstairs patio. During the day the weather turned cold and when we arrived they had a table for us outside and inside in case we didn't want to chance the weather. A very thoughtful gesture as they were quite busy. The waitress was friendly and efficient and all 9 of us walked... More

My husband really enjoys the wismer house wings but I am not a fan of wings but we went anyways. I ordered a club house wrap with sweet potatoe fries. It was absolutely disgusting. Processed thick chedder cheese, with one piece of thick tough bacan and all lettuce. Ripped it apart to find one very tiny piece of shredded chicken... More

Been there a few times and have never been disappointed with the food or atmosphere. My partner and I had a wonderful date here. I was here after a charity event and we had a blast.

Great place for food, music, beer. Whatever your fancy. Love sitting on the patio having a beer and pub food. Pizza is great, paired with a Guinness or a raspberry lemonade. The changes that the owner made to this place has improved this place ten-fold. Thanks Jeff for a great hang-out place in P.E.
