“a place where "everybody knows your name"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This place has great food and great service with great daily specials. The best thing about Pandowdy's is Bob the owner. He looks forward to seeing repeat customers, and remembers everyone's name and greats you enthusiastically and with a warm hand shake as he circulates and works in the restaurant. It is such a great place to go where the folks are sincerely glad to see you!

“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We went this evening and got the jagerschnitzel and the homemade lasagna. They were both excellent! Our drinks were refilled quicker than really needed. The apple pandowdy for dessert is wonderful - it reminded us of an apple dumpling but with apple pieces and crust throughout. We will definitely go back when we are in the area!

“Great hamburgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Wonderful food, but the server tried to give our families food to 2 other tables before the other customers told her that it was our food.

“Awesome steaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

They're open later than everyone else...til 9:00 p.m. We have never had a bad meal there yet. Been there at least six times. May go back tonight for that steak dinner!
