quaint, cozy and good food

Nice menu and food was good, well presented. Nice portions and even the salad that comes with the entrees was a nice mix of greens. The only reason I did not give this a 4 or even 5 star rating is that the wait staff were not up to par. They offered happy hour domestic drafts, so we all ordered... read more

The food was good, nothing special. The atmosphere was unpleasant, feels like you flashed back to the 80's. This is not the 100% the restaurant's fault but when I was there the place was filled with loud-mouths. Feels more a fast food chain than a fine dining experience with everybody listening in to what you are saying and staring at... More

Food was excellent. In the bar area only, they have small plates which are perfect sized for dinner especially if you would like to try one of their fabulous appetizers. Also, while meat is there specialty, there are plenty of disk selective as well.

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
