My wife and I travel past Donegal very often and this summer have stopped here for dinner many Thursday or Friday evenings because we love this place so much. It's definitely the most expensive place we routinely go to but worth every penny. Especially when you consider that it's BYOB (and EVERYBODY B's a B here) with a modest $3/person... More

I would consider myself a foodie and very picky. This place was fabulous! We are there 3 times in two days and every dish was amazing. The food creations were so tasty. The staff was very friendly. The ambience was perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It's too bad we don't live here. I would be a regular for... More

Our 4th time eating here while driving between MD and OH. Like everyone says, their mushroom soup is to die for. We bring two quarts home! The brisket sandwich was absolutely amazing! Low and slow, smokey, melts in your mouth with nice bark. BTL was delicious, says my wife, with wonderful heirloom tomatoes. And that smoked bacon!! Nice view off... More

We discovered this place by accident. Was driving by on our way from a winery run in the mountains. This place was surprisingly nice. The food was delicious, we at on the back deck area. It has a beautiful view of the mountains. I am very happy with this place. The waiting staff was very friendly. Worth checking out..

Third time we have been here. We are from out of town and love stopping here when we have time. In the three times we were here everything was exceptional. We buy their rub for our burgers at home.

Although at first there were some miscommunications they were at least figured out in time for my "big day". A custom menu was made for me and served at our vacation rental by great staff members. My friends and family were extremely impressed with the food and presentation. The prices were very reasonable as well. If we ever go back,... More

We have to drive about 20 miles to go to this restaurant so we don't get there as often as we should. But, it's always worth it. We went last evening, we started with the mussels appetizer (in a white wine/garlic sauce), then a cup of their incredible mushroom soup (we bought a quart of it to bring home); I... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in western Pennsylvania. There are very few items I've tried here that haven't been absolutely delicious. Best soups, salads, and seafood dishes for miles around. The mushroom soup, and the tuna tacos are staples for lunch and the dinner menu is frequently changing with new creations! We usually go for lunch as it's... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on our weekend 'getaway from DC' trip. We made reservations and we were able to sit out on the deck. Very pretty view. It's a BYOB restaurant, which was fine by us. We each ordered an appetizer and an entree. They are famous for their mushroom soup which was fragrant and flavorful... More
