Yummy food

I came here with my Mum and grandmother. It's a very cute spot. The items on their menu are a good balance of familiarity and uniqueness. Unimpressed with slow service.

Having eaten at the Olde New York a few times, I would recommend this restaurant for a good lunch. The soups and goulash are good. The cup size is on the smaller side. The selection of salads is nice. All salads I have tried have been on the larger side. Service has been good. The restaurant can be a little... More

Have been to Olde New York several times. It is a great place to go after PSU sporting events when downtown options are likely overcrowded. Service can be hit or miss...Last night it could have been better. That being said, I have always been happy with the food. Had the Bacarian Schnitzel last night. I thought it was excellent.

It was a filly and rainy day. The temperature inside was not better. All the customers wore their jackets, coats, or sweaters. I had a Reuben sandwich which was off. Something about the dressing I can't put my finger on it. Skip this place.

My husband can be hard to please but he loved his Reuben, I had the mozzarella caprese grilled cheese which was delicious and different. My girls lived there meals as well.... More

Went there on a non-busy night. Only about 20% full. Took over 30 minutes for my wife's soup and salad to come out which was her entree. My entree didn't come for another 10 minutes which was unacceptable. They said kitchen was backed up- hard to believe at about 20% full. Food was OK, but nothing special.

My daughter and I grabbed lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. When we walked in, there was a funky smell lingering like rotting food. We were seated, and although there was only 1 other table of customers seated, it took forever for a server to come to our table, and forever for our food to come out. The food itself... More

With prices a tad on the high side, you get big chunks of meat if that's what you want. My veal was thick, tasteless, and heavily breaded. A frozen portion that was quickly microwaved and then put on the plate. The cabbage side was locally prepared and tasty. One person ordered a chicken salad and, again, BIG chunks of meat... More
