I had that coconut crusted grouper with the creamy caramel sauce with garlic mashed potatoes and perfectly prepared veggies and it is easily one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed. It was presented piping hot and perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is beautiful albeit a tad noisy at times. One is easily able to overlook that effect when dining... More

Looking at the historic building from the outside that houses this restauarant promises to make this meal different. The restaurant is found in an historic 1902 building where stocks and bonds were traded with gold bullion. How cool is that? The menu is extensive and reasonably priced.Our server couldn't do enough for us.The meal when delivered was pleasing to the... More

Ellicottville NY's loss is Bradford, PA's Gain. Kabob's has moved their Restaurant from Ellicottville, NY to Bradford, Pa. We ate there last week and the food was excellent. Kabob's has retained the historic decor of the old Option House where Pennsylvania Petroleum deals were once negotiated and closed. Strangely enough the Option House's decor and Kabob's Mediterranean menu, along with... More

Along our journey from Toronto ON to Richmond Virginia, my husband and I hoped to find a sit-down restaurant for lunch (trying desperately to avoid burgers and subs). We happened upon this restaurant in the Historic District. The building itself is beautiful ( an old hotel) however it was the inside that was the most surprising! A long rectangular room... More

This restaurant is now specializing in Mediterranean cuisine and has many different kinds of kabobs. It still has the same atmosphere and the peacock room upstairs is delightful. The meals that I have had so far are very well presented and taste great. Service is very polite and meals are served in a timely manner. Make this place a must... More

The Option House is a throwback to Bradford's hey-day, when oil barons used to run the city. They even have an operational dumb-waiter from the prohibition era, that was used to carry alcohol from the basement to a speak-easy upstairs. Lots of brass and tile, and a classy place for a nightcap.

My fiancee and I went here for his 21st birthday and had a great time. It is a beautiful, cozy location. I have also been to a Wedding here, and the food was pretty good. The best part about the Birthday celebration was that they gave us our drinks on the house for his 21st! We only have 2 or... More

THIS restaurant understands what an upscale restaurant is all about. If you are looking for a romantic dinner and great food, skip Beefeaters and come here!

Our group (26 adults and children) were at the Option House in the last week and had a wonderful experience yet again. The owner, Sam and his staff had no difficulty in accomodating our group.
