Description: We are located in a beautifully renovated train station that served the Lehigh Valley Railroad since being built in 1904.

A group of us were on an epic motorcycle road trip and we chose to stay in Sayre as a jump off point. The kind folks at the local Hampton Inn recommended The Original Italian Grill and we were not disappointed. The service was prompt and accurate, our waitress, Shelby, was very attentive. The food was well prepared, obviously home... More

Great place for pizza, and they also have other Italian meals that are very reasonable and delicious. We always make this a stop when we are in visiting family.

Spent the night in a motel nearby. Clerk recommended this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. In an old renovated train building. Friendly and attentive staff, in addition to good food, at reasonable prices.

We were driving across the state and stumbled across this eatery simply because we saw the railroad cars and old train station. My husband is a railroad enthusiast so this choice was a no brainer. Luckily for us, the food lived up to our enthusiasm for the restaurant! We loved the bread that they served us, but all the food... More

This is the second time that we ate there and again it was well worth the drive! The sea scallops lightly dusted in panko and then immersed in a pesto cream sauce were succulent and delicious! My boyfriend had the Chicken Cabanerra that was infused with garlic and cream-done very lightly so as not to tarnish the taste but rather... More
