Description: Family Owned & Operated Since 1946 the Ovalon Bar & Grill is Hazleton's longest standing fine dining restaurant. Today the Ovalon is a Italian fine dining tradition, and stands as the roots of the Scalleat Hospitality Group's three restaurants Our chefs feature Italian Classics -- as well as contemporary offerings - in our wide-ranging entree selections. For those that enjoy a lighter fare, a sandwich or a small plate at our smoke free bar is an excellent option. Families can sit and appreciate a relaxing meal with their children, who can order from the children's menu. We also have a full menu available for takeout.

Drove 600 miles today on the way to New Hampshire and stopped at the Residence Inn in Hazleton. They have a list of recommended local restaurants and the night receptionist suggested Ovalon. Reviews also looked good so we gave it a try. It is a charming "old neighborhood" bar and grill reminding me of places in Chicago many years ago.... More

Not only can you get the best bar food, Italian food or American fare but it's a friendly atmosphere! Celebrate your special day here or just come for martinis & conversation. Bring the kids or just that special someone. This place has everything. Prices range from $8 for a great homemade sandwich to $35 for a filet (best steak around!)... More

Whether your choice is from the small plate menu or the dinner menu, you won't be disappointed. Also, one of the best bartenders you'll find anywhere.

My wife and I were on a trip to the Pocono's and happened to drive through Hazelton on the way up. We were hungry and decided to use TripAdvisor to find a place that was rated well. We found the place easily enough but were not sure if the establishment was open. I had to go up to the door... More

The Ovalon is a Hazleton landmark. Great local favorites, excellent Italian American cuisine. Friendly and knowledgable staff. A comfortable spit for a drink, dinner or snack at the bar.

Since we both like Italian we gave it a try. The initial impression was, "oops!" since we entered into what looked like just a bar. Once inside we saw the... More

I have been to many mid level to high net type restaurants in New York City. Several restaurants in NJ and PA. My son ordered a chicken parm with spaghetti. And I ordered a salmon salad. The quality and presentation of the food was not there. My value of my salmon salad was not there. I should have paid $9.99... More
