Great Food- Reasonably priced!

We really enjoyed eating here. The prices were so good compared to NY and the food was good and the staff was very nice. Can't wait to eat there again!

We were actually forced to eat here because of a snow storm keeping us grounded in the attached Howard Johnson hotel. We probably would not have eaten here if not for that, but we are thankful for that storm as the meal was great. Really good eggplant rollatini and ravioli. The pasta sauce was excellent. It came with a nice... More

The wings were just out of this world. There were over 14 varieties of wings. If you are in the area it's a must have.

We decided to try the Serengeti after reading reviews of unique restaurants in the Bartonsville, Pennsylvania area. Well, during our three day stay, we ate at the Serengeti (located in the Howard Johnson Hotel) three times: one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner: Eggs Benedict, three choices of scrumptious homemade soups (French onion, New England clam chowder---better than Massachusetts, Maine,...

If you're staying in the area Serengeti Bar & Grill is a must see, especially if you're into once in a lifetime opportunities. From the tropical canopy ceiling to the rhino staring at you as you wait and wait for a table until THE waitress appears, it's worth every cent and minute. Service is slow to say the least but...
