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.

I sent it back once and the waitress didn't even check to see if it was better. I wanted to send it back again, but never had the opportunity. We also ordered steaks for take out... More

We just dined at the Ovalon on Saturday night as we were spending the night in Hazleton. It was a big disappointment. The restaurant looks charming, but our server completely forgot about us, more than once, and none of the other wait staff seemed to notice, e ven though they were busy serving everyone around us. The food was really... More

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

This place has been around forever, and once you try it you will see why. Nice Atmosphere and very good Service. Why you come back, and back, and back is for the Food. If you want "Homemade" Italian at its best, then this is the Place for you. You will not be disappointed. Try any of the Pasta dishes and... 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.
