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.

As far as the food goes it was average. I had seafood fra diavolo with banana peppers. Interesting twist on a traditional dish but it was fair, would i order it again .. no but i was hungry and it filled the hole. The service was awful , the young girl was pleasant if not distant. We were seated at... More

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

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. It's in an old train station and the atmosphere was pleasant. The waitress was very friendly and the food good. The beer was nice and cold. Will go here again.

We were in town overnight and found this restaurant from Trip Advisor. Wow, the food here was fantastic! Our family (consisting of children 9-15yrs & adults) ordered appetizers, burgers, pasta entrees, pizza & dessert! Everyone loved every bite! Wish this place were closer to home!

True attention to detail with every pizza. We enjoy the fresh ingredients and that the pizza is served HOT. The interior is also so much nicer than it use to be. If you are a local then you already know about this place, but if you like to travel this is a must when you are around the Lockwood area.... More
