Excellent service at bar with a wide selection of craft and IPAs. Bar staff very attentive and helpful. Comfortable place to watch a game either at bar or in restaurant area. Appetizers good but not great; quesadillas not distinctive and Sirachi boneless chicken very hot - celery side to it was a bit scant (minor annoyance). Food choices varied enough... More

Arena Bar and Grill offers a fun night out. Drink menu is very extensive and drinks are always consistently good. Typical bar food menu. A place to return to.

Great place to come for dinner. Great food...our faves are the chicken wings, buffalo chicken cheesesteak, steak salad, ok....there are too many to list!! Their martini's are awesome and you must try the chocolate covered strawberry! Now if we could only get them to add those to happy hour...!!! They have so many beer choices that they need a menu...

The beer and liquor selection is out of this world! I go here quite often and the ever changing specials menu always has delicious and creative new drinks and food! The service is always prompt and friendly. If you haven't been here yet, you should come out for the 10-12 Friday happy hour!

I have dined here dozens of times, and they never disappoint! Our family of 3+1 friend had a wonderful birthday dinner and drinks. Ming, our server was an awesome waiter, the food was great, and the selection of beer, wine and cocktails is second to none. The atmosphere was fun and lively. Great night!

Food selection is extensive with a section that changes every so often. I have NEVER had a meal here that I didn't like. The cheesesteaks, fries and burgers are by far the best in the valley! Wait staff is excellent too. The chef is out of bounds as he constantly comes up with menu items that are amazing. He is... More

Fun place with one of the best beer selections in NEPA. The wait stuff is a lot of fun and the atmosphere is great. Good events from time to time and the food's tasty. Good place to watch a game, but big enough that you can find a table and hold a conversation as well.
