We eat at Rachel's periodically. Always crowded. Good food but lacks the chef specialties and edge of former days. That said you know you will have good food and service. For small town PA the wine list is ok, but could use some expansion. Peanut Butter pie always tops off the dinner.

The ribs were very good - not the best I ever had but they were good. The service was very good. It was very crowded which means they are a local favorite. We loved the decor. It was so interesting seeing all of the animals and interesting items all over the walls. Prices were average but you do get a... More

Rachel's was highly recommended by the clerk at our hotel, so we thought lets give it a try. Even better than we imagined. Food was excellent, our waitress very informative, and a great prices. We look forward to going there again when we are in the area. We hear on the weekend there could be an hour wait. I would... More

We stopped here on the recommendation of the front desk at our hotel. At 5 p.m. on Friday night it was a 30 minute wait---but we were seated, and served immediately. We were most impressed with the way the place was run, with managers and servers all working together to make sure that the customers were served, and tables turned.... More

Wow - this place was fantastic. AFter only a short wait was seated by a very friendly waitress. The food was delicious and plentiful . When we left (a Monday evening) it was packed with cars in the overflow lot. REcommend for anyone in the area (we were visiting Grove City College).

Stopped by Rachel's Roadhouse this afternoon at lunch and was very impressed. We only had a five minute wait, but I know this place gets packed for dinner and on the weekends. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was great, and the food was very good. The quality of the food and the way that it was prepared was excellent.... More

You would never know Rachel's Roadhouse is close to the interstate and just down the road and a quick left turn and Viola! This Roadhouse is well worth the short drive and beats all those chain restaurants with their homey friendly decor and service! The menu is roadhouse with a bite of an eclectic twist. I had their one of... More

After 3 days of culinary disasters visiting my folks nearby, my wife and I needed a good cocktail and really good food. I"d eaten at Rachel's many times over the years while attending a local university, so I thought of it immediately. It was a Monday and the parking lot was PACKED! The hostess said it was a typical Monday.... More

Arrived after 8 on a Friday night. Very busy. There was a wait for a table so I sat at the bar. Not a good selection of local/ craft beers. Yeungling doesn't really count. Had a Magic hat (VT) which was great - Elder Betty. Ordered wings ( frank's red hot straight up) French onion soup ( needed salt) and... More
