unless you would want to be womanized .... DO NOT GO. its disgusting . I would have wanted to give a zero out of 5 but it was mandatory to give at least one star. DO NOT GO. I REPEAT...... NO.

I rated average because we weren't disappointed but we weren't wowed. The establishment is rather dark and has a bit of a stale beer smell to it. Service was outstanding and our waitress was very friendly. We ordered anywhere from salads to wings to burgers and fish. We might go back but not in a rush.

This is my daughters Junior year at IUP and we never stopped at this recommended hangout. A bit dirty and dark at the entrance, we got seats near the kitchen in the dining room. There was six of us as we took my daughters friends to get a wide variety of service was a little slow, took about 10 minutes... More

Spinach artichoke dip had no flavor and neither did the buffalo wings. The bangers tasted like pine. Sitting outdoor on the patio was the highlight of the visit.

For a little town like Indiana this place has awesome wings. the whole wing not just a piece of it. They have a large beer selection as well as other tasty entrees. I would highly recommend it for any parents visiting their kids at school

Feels grungy inside which is typical of a college bar. The food isn't terrible but the fact that it is dirty kind of makes it less enjoyable. The decor is pretty cool as it is Irish themed. If you go to the bar they do serve pretty awesome popcorn out of a popcorn maker..

Enjoyed choices not available at every restaurant. Thought the food was delicious and fun. Friendly staff, but complicated and confusing specials. Would be fun in the summer when the doors are open.

I can't go to Indiana without stopping at the Coney, the favorite for students for as many years as I can member. The changes over the years have been positive. They have expanded the space, now include a wide variety of micro-brews, and enlarged the menu. Food is good and service is friendly. Go early if you just can't stand... More

Went back to the Coney for Homecoming weekend at IUP. Jayme and Tim, the owners were very kind to reserve a table for our party of 6, even though they were busy hosting the Offical IUP Alumni Party upstairs. Props to our waitress Taylor. A real pro in all respects. Good Food, great Beer selection, and comfortable feel. I good... More
