Maroons is dead - Long Live the KEG

For all of you still in mourning over the demise, more like murder, of Maroon’s in Pottsville, throw off your shroud, fasten on your napkins and head over to the Wooden Keg. The main question ringing in my head is “why in the hell, have we never been here before”. Over ten years of going to... read more

Nice bar with a lovely ambiance! Food was great!! The Bufferogies are a must (perogies in a creamy buffalo sauce)! The menu is so diverse, they have it all! A good place to visit after touring the Yuengling brewery!

We stopped in for a quick lunch before a wedding. The service was excellent. The needs were cold. The food came out quickly and was very good. I had boneless chicken wings with Buffalo and Blue Cheese sauce. They were very good. They have ~20 sauces for wings. My onion rings were gigantic and tasty. We came back later (after... More

We went there for the wings which is their premier food. They were out of wings. WHAT!!!! Well we were there so we ordered burgers instead. As soon as the burgers were delivered, the manager comes in and announces he went to the store and bought wings. Come on.... The beer was not cold and the burgers were nothing to... More

Ate there twice in the past 2 months. Food was good. They have an old dumb waiter that drops down the food into the restaurant from the upstairs kitchen. Scared the heck out of my grown daughter the first time we were there. First time service was better, last time the service was awful. I would try it again. hubby... More

Great spot in walking distance to the Ramada. Naked wings were really good, chicken poppers without all the oily breading. Irish pub makes great layered beer combos....Darkling = Guiness on top of yuengling lager. Manager is friendly and you can tell he cares about his restaurant. The music is good too, mixing some Irish tunes with regular bar music so... More

Food was delicious. A varied selection. I was there on a Wednesday night Steak and Lobster with 2 sides $19.99. They also have a great crab mac and cheese.

We have dined at the Wooden Keg a few times. The staff is always very friendly but sometimes the service is a bit spotty. Meals can take a while to be served but again it depends on the staff that evening, I would still recommend trying so you can see for yourself.

Dirty/sticky-Flies everywhere. Terrible service. Soggy overpriced food. The owner insists that no music but the same 5 Irish songs play over & over & over, even though there is a juke box I asked for a Grey Goose martini and they made it with sweet vermouth
