“Carmody's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

If you are looking for good food a decent prices this is the place. This restaurant is the quinticential family restaurant . They have a robust menu. The building is dated as is the interior. However, the food was very good and the service was very good. We were just passing through, but if I was in the area again, I would go back.

“Sustainability is the key”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

To be in business since 1952, you must have something good to offer, and, we did, find something good. In fact, we found quite a few things good. With a party of 7, we had quite a variety of well-prepared menu items, even with a few 'picky' eaters. There is a nice bar with sports on TV. While, 4*'s may be a slight exageration, 3*'s didn't quite fit, either. One minor negative was, we felt rushed, near the end of our visit. By the way, it is very closer to Wexford, than to the town of Sewickley.

“Just the right taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Looking for a venue with spectacular food! Well, try this restaurant. The menu stated it was founded in 1920. Nothing special about the decor, but the food was scrumptious. I had the Oktoberfest "Wurst Platter" with all the trimmings. I've been to Germany many times and am always a bit disappointed in restaurants that try to cook "authentic" German food. Not this time....I recommend this Carmody and this chef to anyone who loves good great-tasting food.

“Family restaurant with liquor license”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We regretted that we didn't go to Bob Evans or Eat N Park where the food is comparable but priced accordingly. Selection of food is high fat, high calorie with no finer dining.

“The food is excellent !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

I've eaten at Carmody's scores of times over the past 20 years. Been there with family, been there with business associates.

The food has ALWAYS been very good to excellent ! A favorite of mine is the larger fish sandwich prefaced with a breaded zucchini appetizer. But they do all dinners and sandwiches well. Pricing is very reasonable too.

The knock on Carmody's is the decor. The teal colored pleather chairs scream 1970 but they are comfortable . And the facility is kept very clean. But if you prefer TV sets on the walls, gaming machines, pulsating music rendering conversation impossible, and chain facility food you'll not want to come here.

If excellent food is what you want then make a visit to Carmody's located just a block west of the I-79, Route 910 intersection.
