Where in hell is Donegal, PA anyway and what's a four plus star gourmet restaurant doing there? The #3 restaurant is the Dairy Queen and McDonalds is in the top five. The last census counted less than 300 souls. The first question is easy: it's at exit 91 on the PA Turnpike. Anything else there? Yeah, a mountain, snow, and... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way home from Cleveland after thanksgiving. We had stopped here a few years ago as a respite from snowy road conditions on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. I was delighted to find gluten-free options on the menu. The roasted chicken sandwich with bacon, portabella mushrooms, lettuce and tomato on a gluten-free bun allowed me dive... More

Although staying at Nemacolin, or friends did their usual foodie research and suggested taking the modest drive here for dinner. A great choice, excellent food and good service. Be Aware:. It is BYOB; the closest wine is at Sarnelli's market which is close by but limited selection. Pricey but also on par with any high end restaurant, I would say... More

I have heard great things about Out of the Fire Cafe and decided to try it when in the area. It has a nice atmosphere and nice people.We decided to eat inside even though the beautiful Fall day was warm enough to be able to eat on the deck. We both decided on a chicken sandwich served on a toasted... More

Our server was amiable and yet professional. The food was well prepared and attractively presented, and we didn't have to wait long for delivery. A special request was not only happily accommodated, we got the feeling they are encouraged. The ambiance is an odd mix of trendy dishes, steakhouse flatware, cool lighting, and log-cabin tables and chairs. We found it... More

Heard great reviews so my wife and I stopped in on our way down the pike. Mushroom soup was outstanding. We purchased some to take home. The food tasted very good. I had the Balsamic & Rosemary Marinated Flat Iron. When I tasted it it was barely warm. The waiter asked so I commented it would taste better if the... More

Loved the atmosphere, the food and the service. Portions are huge and delicious. It is pricey but so worth it! Great soup, salads and entrees. The staff couldn't have been nicer!

Very good meal, howver, was disappointed that only a "limited menu" was available when we arrived. Evidently a limited menu is offered between 3 and 4 o'clock so the choices were few. However, the cajun mac and cheese was excellent. We also got a chicken sandwich that was good but not exceptional. I wish that at least a burger was... More

The food was phenomenal, service was top-notch....and the atmosphere was perfect. We both got seafood (salmon & grouper) & they were delicious. The sides of saffron risotto & caramelized pecan Brussel sprouts complimented the meals nicely. The bread pudding for desert was probably the best I've ever had! Our server Mike was very attentive & had a lot of knowledge... More

Out of the Fire Cafe is a family owned and operated casual restaurant serving New American cuisine year round. We have been creating flavors amidst laughter and friends since the year 2007. The Cafe is tucked into the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, conveniently located near area ski resorts, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, numerous state parks, and the rushing Pennsylvania Turnpike. Out of the Fire Cafe welcomes guests with an open kitchen where guests are able to peer into a mesmerizing scene of flashing flames and artistic finesse. The spacious dining area is complimented by an incredible view of the Laurel Highlands ridgeline. Deck dining is offered when the weather permits giving diners the opportunity to take in the rolling countryside. We are a Bring Your Own Beer or Wine establishment so don't forget to snag your beverage of choice. For a reservation please call the phone number listed below.
