Traditional Italian BYO

Have eaten here 3 times in the last 10 days (just moved back to the area after being out of state). Good pasta dishes (especially liked the shrimp Fra Diavolo - shrimp were large, lots of garlic chunks). BYO means I'm sure I'll like the wine (and keeps the cost of the dinner down, since there's no... read more

My boyfriend has been eating at the Mustard Seed since before it was the Mustard Seed...back when it was DeMaio's in Hamburg. Food is amazing. We've eaten there a number of times before, but tonight was probably the best. We both had specials- shrimp/scallop scampi for me, and rigatoni w/ crab for him. Both were fabulous. Scampi is like a... More

We were in town seeing relatives and they suggested this place. OMG! I've seen snails move faster than that kitchen. The wait staff tried to keep help out but the food just wouldn't get to the table. The relatives were quite embarrassed. I finally had to stand by the kitchen to get our food.

We used to go here mores frequently but have stopped recently due to the incredibly slow service in take outs. They will tell you 20 minutes to pick up and you will invariably wait an additional 15-20 min when you get there for your order. When the food is good, it's very good but unfortunately that is hit or miss.... More

We used to travel the eastern Pa. area testing out pizza's for fun. Then we discovered Jack's and it ruined it for us 'cause his is the BEST. If you're regulars they treat you like GOLD. The place is run by a REAL family and they treat you like a member. I grew up in Philly in an Italian neighborhood... More

Excellent food and friendly service every time I have eaten at Mustard Seed! I live out of the area but it is "must-do" for when I visit family and friends. The marinara sauce is fresh and flavorful, but my favorite is the chicken francise with the capers. More lobster would have been nice in the lobster bisque but the French... More

I ate there during lunch. One server but the dinning room was not even half full took over 45 minutes to get the food. Never got a chance for drink refills, when I asked for a box she gave me one way too small. If you are on lunch break you will not be able to make it on time.... More

The Mustard Seed Cafe is a wonderful great small restaurant in Orwigsburg, PA that features excellent Italian cuisine menu and retains a great atmosphere of a small family restaurant. Service is great, the food is fantastic. We have never been disappointed. My favorite = Con Fungi (Penne with Mushrooms). A regular weekly stop for us whenever we can go.
