If you are looking for a special place to eat in the Hazelton area then the Meating House is it. There are a number of chain restaurants nearby that you should pass by. The Meating House is a quaint, family owned establishment with tons of character and wonderful food. I had a delicious swordfish steak that couldn't have been prepared... More

We were a group of three. All of our meals were served in a timely manner, absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is comfortable. Our server was attentive and friendly. Each of us would recommend this charming restaurant to our friends and family.

My husband and I just enjoyed one of the best meals out in a long time. Our server was great, and although they started getting really busy, we were not neglected. More importantly, our meals were perfect. The French Onion soup is hands down, the best I've ever enjoyed. I was a little unsure if the special tuna entree would... More

The atmosphere was cute, and really cozy, but the food was eh. I got the prime rib special and was severely disappointed. At least a third of it was fat, and it was so bland. I had to load it with salt and pepper to make it taste like anything. The vegetable side was a mix of baby carrots, shredded... More

This is definitely worth a stop when you are in the area. It is a cozy place, great selection of food, reasonably priced and the wait staff was very accommodating. Although it sounds like a steak house, the seafood is just as good. Although their specials sounded great, i just wanted to try something off the menu since this was... More

We arrived without reservations, but were seated promptly anyway. It was a very clean, cozy & relaxing atmosphere. There is a lot to look at because it is decorated so nicely in old world charm. The staff was very efficient, & made sure our glasses were always full. We both enjoyed the fresh, crisp salad, but thought it took a... More
