Lots of outdoor seating, but smoky. Average food.

Stopped in for dinner while traveling for business. The outdoor seating is nice, and large. But it's also a smoker's haven. The smell of cigar smoke was very noticeable. I had a couple of wings to start, which were quite good. Steak for entree, which was fatty and a bit tough, and... read more

We live in the area and had to give them another try in all fairness . We were seated promptly and after about twenty minutes I had to ask if we could order something to drink. Wow, it was like I was interrupting or something. We were outside and not full so a little puzzling. After stating we were sorry... More

We decided to stop here for dinner as a last minute decision. What a great idea! The staff was incredibly friendly. The environment was laid back and nice. And the food was excellent! Will definitely be eating here again... and again!

Fancy building and nice bar. What it is, well it's mainly a bar with a fancy building (mafia). Bar food not a place for a nice date, unless you think a nice date is going to a bar, then this place is for you. Ps I eat there 2+ times a month.

We enjoyed our lunch on Friday so much that we returned for lunch again on Saturday. We tried eggplant parmesan, pizza and chicken picatta. All of our meals were very good and we will return the next time we are in the area. Service was friendly, but a little slow.

Good Italian food, but nothing noteworthy. For what you get it was a little expensive, but that is my personal opinion. A couple of guys in our group really loved the place, so I guess it's very much a personal thing. Waitress was wonderful when she had time to take care of us. She was probably a bit overwhelmed because... More

Stopped in after the Adamstown carnival. Neat outdoor setting for sure. Drinks were slightly high (but I am used to private fire hall club prices). We decided that at 10:30pm (on a Sunday) most places were closed, so ordered food as well. The guy/gal behind the bar didn’t seem very motivated to get the menu, get the order in, take... More

Judging from reading the other reviews, my companion and I must have dined here on a very good day. We stopped in for lunch on the way back home on a 400+ mile trip. She decided on the meatball sliders with a side of broccoli and garlic. I ordered the lunch special of angel hair pasta with red sauce and... More

Really, the only reason people go here is because it's the only place open to drink until 2 am every night. The service is horrible... I mean really bad. The waitresses wear dirty yoga pants (is it that hard to obtain legitimate work pants?) And act like they would rather be anywhere other than work. The bartenders won't smile and... More
