It looked good on the Internet and the staff at Hampton Inn recommended it. If you love Italian food in a casual atmosphere, you must check it out. I had a seafood medley over linguine. The sauce was homemade, the seafood was calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels, all cooked to perfection. I know because the calamari was tender and not over-cooked.... More

Stopped in late one evening with my gf to grab a bite to eat. We spilt an app. My gf had the ahi tuna and I had the 12oz sirloin. There was a great atmosphere, drinks were cold, food was average but our server John was absolutely great very courteous and knowledgeable. Will definitely stop back soon

In fact, it seems to get better with time. As far as I know this is the only restaurant of any real interest in the area. Everything that we... More

This place was recommended by the staff at the local Hampton Inn. What a great find! Great food, good drink selections, and reasonably priced by todays standards. Wait staff was a little pushy to get us to leave, but we did get there after 8 PM, so I guess we probably were pushing our limits. Overall a great experience and... More

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
