Good Food

We stopped for dinner and was seated right away. The waitress got us our drinks then we had to wait for her to come back and get our order. Since it was within the early bird time span of taking $2.00 off the entree it seemed the food we ordered was a smaller portion. the food when delivered was... read more

Recently ate here on the way home from work. There was a group of us--11. The waitress, Rocky, was great! She was really friendly and kept checking on our drinks and making sure we had everything we needed. I ordered my usual--Wicked Chicken Steak Sandwich and fries. I have eaten at other Platz's restaurants and noticed that all of them... More

We arrived on Sunday night about 7:00 and it was packed with loud music outside. Since we had young kids we hesitated but gave it a shot. We were seated upstairs so the bar crowd and music weren't a factor. It started good...ok decor, friendly quick service, good appetizers but then no dinner arrived. 45 min later we still hadn't...

Visiting Jim Thorpe for a weekend, my husband and myself where looking for places to eat at. We came here on a Friday night, the place was packed. When walking in, we didn't have to wait however, and got right to seating. The food came out fast, and the waitress was friendly. The place has a very small town feel,... More

Don't expect a high end meal here. This is a well run, with good food and good service restaurant. It's family friendly with a great bar. The staff will go out of their way to make guests happy. Special requests are always excepted if possible. The only down side is the silverware. It's thin and flimsy. A real throwback to... More

We used to visit Platz' on a regular basis. That was 10 years ago! There is now a lovely balcony in the back facing the woodland - a quiet and beautiful location on a warm summer evening. Two weeks ago we took another couple with us and went back to celebrate our 56th Anniversary. Having read the reviews we arrived... More

Love the early bird menu, before 6 PM, a good selection for reasonable prices. I have been here many times and the food has always been good.

Years ago, I used to frequent Platz's and was always pleased with the food, service and value. Between 2011 and 2013 I returned twice. The first time, the service was slow and the waitress not pleasant. The food was just average and overpriced for the quality. I returned to give it another chance. I was just as disappointed for all... More

I had to meet a friend in the area so ended up here again. I have been here many times over the years, and the food is always the same "average". The bar food is slightly better then the meals, although bar food is not a way to rate a restaurant. The newer servers are nice, although, management and the... More
