A nice non-chain option for family

My mom and I really enjoy coming here. Our favorite is the Prime Rib dinner that has been a Friday night special for some time. They'e cook your cut to order, if, like my Mom, you don't like your prime rib rare. The dinner comes with one or two sides, as well. Add a generous carafe of wine, and... read more

I recently visited the Loomis since yet again change in ownership. I had the fried chicken which had an OK flavor, my wife had stuffed chicken breast and it was not seasoned well at all. Decor does not at all go with price. The quality of food is not what the prices match.

Family of six dined with shockingly no issues, the food was great and our waitress was wonderful. The fried chicken is awesome!

I decided to use The Captain Loomis for a Clarion Basketball Reunion on Homecoming weekend - October 3rd. We had 28 attendees in a Loomis meeting room and dinner was served via a limited menu. I did not want a buffet and people had options to order as they pleased. The Loomis showed flexibility with this menu and billing each... More

We dined at the Captain Loomis following Clarion University's graduation. We did not have a reservation, but was able to walk in and get a table for 2. The restaurant is located on a charming Main Street, and the building itself is historic and decorated with antiques and/or reproductions. I ordered a drink from their full bar, and it was... More

The restaurant is filthy and the food is frozen poor quality prepackaged and prepared by inexperienced staff. The restaurant is located below a squalid group of apartments and is no better. It caters to a bar crowd in back which, if you are a college student then ok but as far as a place to dine respectably without legitimate fear... More

This place has made improvements. After eating there a few years ago I swore I'd never go back. They won me back. The quality of food is excellent for the price. Their prime rib, appetizers and pizza are all great. I'm looking forward to trying more of their meals. Apparently the secret isn't out yet. They don't seem to be... More

Went new years eve for dinner & drinks. Service was very good. Meals were tasty. My wife had the filet, said it was excellent. I had the crab cakes, they were decent. Brought dessert home since we were stuffed. It was real good, had the bananas foster cheesecake and caramel apple pie. Definitely recommend giving the place a try.

It's obvious the new chef knows what she's doing. We're been really impressed with the quality, presentation and above all taste, of everything we've ordered since the re-opening. Service has been very good, too. Keep up the good work!

Let me first say if you have kids not the place to go! Took forever to get waited on and then to get our food, was just getting ready to walk out when the waitress finally came to take our order. Although we did have a good laugh when they came and took our menu's before we ever ordered. Was... More
