As outstanding as this place was, absolutely no equal, the owners closed the place at the end of August. Simply a retirement issue. Very sad for all of us who loved the place and the owners. Sorry you will miss the experience. 😞

The doc of this restaurant and its garden was exceedingly beautiful! The food was always delicious,especially the Sunday brunches. I was very sad to hear of their closing at the end of August!

Had dinner here for the first time a few weeks before the closing. I regret not frequenting this outstanding establishment more often. This is one if not the only 4 diamond restaurant in the Scranton vicinity. Someone or a group of investors need to take over this gem and continue it's heritage. This can't slip into history. Enough said.

I've dinned here repeatedly over the years and never had a single compliant. I loved the colorful Floridian inspired motif and their unique gourmet menu. This is such a unique restaurant for Northeast PA and will be undoubtedly missed!

I took my friend to lunch here this past week and the decor, service, ambiance and food are absolutely spectacular. Run, don't walk, to give your senses and taste buds a treat. They are closing August 31 of this year!

Food and service outstanding. The restaurant is closing this month. It will be a loss to the area because there are few restaurants of this stature in the area

Patsel's is closing, so sad. So we've been taking advantage of warm summer nights to go there and savor their final offerings before closing at the end of August. Everything is truly delicious, but I really like the duck. It's done well and is not something you find on many menus. I would recommend experiencing Patsel's before they close.

My husband and I went there for our anniversary and were excited to have a fantastic meal. The prices were rather high but I could have dealt with that. What I struggled with the most was the staff. We literally were interrupted every 5 minutes by some one to "see how we were doing" or "to say hello". Then they... More

For 15 years Patsel's has stood out as a great restaurant amongst much mediocrity. It is closing because the community was not ready to consistently support a such a great restaurant . John and Pat Arkins( owners): Kudos to a job so very well done. Great food and wonderful ambience.
