A great dining experience in Bradford. Located in an historic library, the steakhouse offered a fine-dining menu at reasonable prices. A memorable find in Bradford, Pennsylvania!

Great varied menu, the restaurant is known by its Beef, which is amazing. Excellent staff, great wine list, and nice atmosphere made for a wonderful relaxing meal. Within walking distance of the Holiday Inn, and Comfort Inn.

Historic structure built in 1900 as a Carnegie library; in 1991-93 this building was purchased and renovated into a restaurant and lounge. Most everything inside is original, including doors and knobs. Wonderful ambience. The food is delicious - they specialize in roast beef and you can watch it being carved. The way it tastes and chews is "all in the... More

This place, our renovated old Carnegie library, has been our 'go to' place for many years, and we have been so glad the building was salvaged, and well, turning it into what was a great place to eat. Sadly, the new management/owners, have allowed it to slip noticeably. The salads are wilted , always, not crisp and fresh as it... More

Amazing supper, great service but man the prime rib was probably the tastiest largest slab of beef I've ever had. Salad was fresh, apple pie fresh as it gets. Bun was the only mediocre part of my meal.

WE expected more since we've been here before but one friend found plastic in their salad, the food was lukewarm at best and even though our waitress tried to make it up, we didn't even get the salad replaced. The manager never appeared to ask about anything or to offer apologies. Will we go back, judge for yourselves.

If you love beef, then this is the place to eat. Located in the old Carnage Library in downtown Bradford. I did a to go order of a Beef on Weck (a Buffalo NY and WNY specialty sandwich of sliced beef on a salted and seeded Kaiser roll with horseradish), and French onion soup. Both were great. The Beef on... More

Anniversary dinner with my wife...well worth the drive. Shrimp cocktail was great ...fresh horseradish on the table was a tip off to order the prime rib. They have a beef bar ...not a beef buffet bar...the chef at the beef bar just cuts roast beef filling just roast beef orders. Also, beef on weck for all my friends in Buffalo.... More

Best restaurant in Bradford PA. In an incredibly renovated, old, red sandstone Carnegie library. I've been there several times and would like to write a review. Just East of Allegheny National Forest.
