Would Go Again If No Other Options

The food was good and reasonably priced and our server was very nice. However, it wasn't the decor that drew us - it's very old and in need of sprucing. I suspect this restaurant is where the 'locals meet'. The restaurant is on a side street and we found it by accident.

Older establishment. Took forever to get our orders (3 of us), so we had to gobble and RUN to our 1pm tour at the Lunatic Asylum close by.

This place is across the river from the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and is easy to walk to, as there is a little pedestrian bridge to cross over. The food and service were great, however the place was dark and a little run down looking. It didn't stop us from enjoying our meal though.

I guess this isn't our type of restaurant. We don't like fried food or servers with an attitude. Everyone in the place knew each other, so we felt very uncomfortable being there. What is really strange though, there is no view of the river at all.

From the outside, this restaurant does not look inviting - there are few windows, and there is little signage or decor. Inside the restaurant, the decor is very plain. On a Saturday afternoon, this was the only lunch option we could find in the town of Weston. Within the Main St area, this was the only restaurant that was opened... More

Kathy's is located in an old building which was once the shop of a local plumber. When Kathy decided to locate there, she did not make very many changes to the building, which explains the rustic décor. We live in Weston and so have eaten here quite a few times. The food is just your basic home cooking, which we... More

I had lunch here with friends and family that raved about how great the biscuits and gravy are here. Not wanting breakfast so late in the day, I was the only one that ordered a sandwich. The Philly steak sandwich was only just okay. It was served with chips and a pickle. I did get half of a biscuit and... More
