“The best wings in the county.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2015

We live not far from the hotel and enjoy their wings on a weekly basis. Sorry to say they are closed for the season and rumor has it that they may not re-open.

“The place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2015

Every time we come to this area of the state, we must stop to dine here. The wings are very good and are quite large. The staff is attentive and prices are fair. The honey dipped chicken dinner is also quite tasty.

“My Old Stomping Grounds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

I was born and raised in this part of Pennsylvania and never go back to visit without stopping here for the ginormous wings! You'll be hard pressed, to find any better, anywhere else! Always a fun time with great service and prices...not to mention, a beautiful drive to get there in the Allegheny National Forrest. I highly recommend this place to everyone who loves great food and cold beer.

“Wonderful Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

Family stayed in one of our cabins and we all ate at the Vowinckel Hotel on Saturday, November 8. It was wonderful. My husband and I had the stuffed flounder which was done to perfection. The service was excellent! We had a great waitress!

“Very slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We have enjoyed going here in the past but it looks like it's for sale and seems to have gone downhill. We were able to get a table right away but it took well over an hour to get our food which was burgers which were OK in taste but definitely not worth all the time.
