A Favorite!

This is one of my favorite haunts in the area...nightly drink specials, a fun ambiance, and just one of the all around great area standbys. You've got to try the buffalo shrimp!

We've had lunch many times and we've not needed a reservation. In nice weather try eating outside under roof by the fireplaces. Very nice atmosphere.

Stopped here with a friend for lunch. Very pleasant and rustic decor. A large menu consisting of mostly wings, burgers and sandwiches. This is part of a chain of restaurants. Our server was busy with a full load of tables so we had to wait until we could flag her down. I had fish and chips and my friend had... More

The appetizers were amazing...French onion soup, chili and wings. However, the steak dinner was drowned in gravy and the seafood platter didn't taste like anything. Seriously, I don't generally like the fishy taste but my husband made me try it and it literally had no flavor at all. Wish we had stuck to the starters.

Awesome food and wait staff, even wound up taking friends with us the third night. They have lived in the area for 10 years and had never eaten there, very impressed. The Prime Rib special on Thursday was perfect @ $11.99 with salad, sautéed mushrooms & onions & sweet potato fries with dipping sauce. PERFECT! Friendly wait staff & good... More

My family visits this fun restaurant often. The food is affordable and the burgers are always amazing...great sweet potato fries too! The bar always seems to be full and people obviously enjoy watching sports there. A great patio with outdoor bar often features live music. Inside, there are multiple floors decorated with fun antiques and interesting vintage objects.

We have been coming to the area for 45+ years but rarely go out to dinner, usually only stay at our Aunt/Uncle home. This time we were visiting and decided to take our Aunt out for her Birthday and really just didn't want to cook. She had no idea where to go but a friend recommended this place. It was... More

Bring my kids here for "date night" occasionally and they love sitting in the covered outdoor area. Food and service have never been less than A+.

Since becoming PJ's at Platz's the menu has become a typical chain sports bar menu. Sandwiches etc are OK. Dinners leave a lot to be desired. The place gets packed and it is close to the PA turnpike- but there are better options nearby.
