We picked this restaurant because it was close to the Hampton where we were staying. We walked there. Excellent food and atmosphere. Had a little NYC feel to it.

Better than Devon, the Circular, anything in the Hotel Hershey or Motor Lodge. Crab martini excellent; salads extraordinary. Pasta dishes very tasty. Attention tourists and nouveau riche: please continue to throw your $ away at those other places. I'd hate to see What If get too crowded.

I was very happy with our choice! We ate at the bar that was very cozy and had an awesome bartender. He was very fun to talk with and concerned that every customer has a great experience, even knowing that we were just passing thru. The menu is amazing, very hard to choose....so many great options. We ended up with... More

After watching The Nutcracker, my sister-in-law and I stopped in for some Appetizers. Based on her recommendation I had the Black Bean Margarita. It was great and I really liked the presentation. The price was just perfect. My drink was perfect. Our server was very attentive. I am looking forward to going back.

I ordered well done steak, it was tender in the middle and charred on the edges, plus the steak lacked flavor. I ordered mash potatoes the waiter came back with rice. He said that they were out of mashed potatoes. I agreed to the rice to be easy. The dessert tasted ok, nothing special about it at all. I ordered... More

went for dinner here after a cold & wet visit to Chocolate World. Called ahead on a busy December night and was able to be seated within the half hour. Two of us had the small pasta choices, one had steak and one halibut special. All four dinners were tasty and well prepared. Good service also.

I have never in my entire life had better crab cakes then this restaurant! LARGE chunks of crab and ZERO filler. Outstanding!!!! The rice that came with it was terrible though and I wish mashed potatoes or sweet potato fries came with it instead. No bread was served which I thought was strange. Highly recommended for the crab cakes!! Yum!

Need to know it is there but easy to find with some help. It needs some updating and cannot live on the original design forever so they need to put something back into the establishment. Service was fine and food was good.

This is the second time my wife and I ate here. It's nondescript from outside because it's in a motel basement but dint judge a book by it's cover. The salad is made up of delicious lettuce and veggies. We had tried blood orange vinagrette and a vanilla vinagrette. For dinner we tried the pork chop special which was delicious!!... More
