We are located in a beautifully renovated train station that served the Lehigh Valley Railroad since being built in 1904. There are several train cars on the property, serving as dining cars and storage for the restaurant. From a great lunch destination with set daily features to a late night, sports bar feel, you'll be sure to find yourself feeling right at home.

Very good value.

The food and service were good. Panko crusted scallops in a basil pesto cream sauce is one of my favorites. Consistently delicious.

Stopped in on a Sunday. Out of the only beer I wanted. Ordered two pizzas. Cheese and bbq brisket. Both were good. Service was good. Nothing was out of this world but it was a nice place with good food. Would consider stopping again.

A classier alternative to OIP. Love the ambiance of the train station. Always enjoy wide spaces and lofted ceilings. Upon entrance, there is a partially open kitchen to view pizza being tossed high by the Artisan's hands. Nicely trained staff. Food is delicious, especially the homemade bread their cheesesteaks are served on.

I heard some people from work talk about OIG so I tried it. I ordered a calzone and it was very good. The atmosphere is upbeat and staff is very friendly. I plan on going back my next trip to Sayre.

Ordered chicken/bacon/ranch pizza and 2 large side salads to go. Way too much chicken, not enough bacon and could NOT even taste the ranch dressing. Italian dressing for salads tasted like Seven Seas dressing. The bread was delicious though. Disappointed no anti-pasta on the menu.

I don't care for wings but my friends do and they stated they were excellent. The pizza was chewy crust, not something I care for either but the toppings were good. The hamburger was very good and big, a lot of meat. And the fries were thin, not too greasy, so I definitely liked those. Service was pretty good, we... More
