Have been going there for years and never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh. The portions are large. The prices reasonable and the service is great. They are crowed at times so reservations might be needed for peak times.

We stopped for a late lunch after driving nearly 5 hours from Western Pennsylvania heading for the Philadelphia area. Two of us had salads (chicken Caesar and Fried Chicken, Bacon and cheese) and the third had what she said was the best Reuben she had eaten in a long time .. Service was very attentive and pleasant. Prices were reasonable... More

My favorite is the California Bacon Cheeseburger with French Fries. I usually order extra mayo on the side for my fries. The burgers are delicious. The fries are served in a huge mound. The service is excellent and friendly.

This is a family own restaurant. It is a fine oil machine. Good food ,friendly service and has a great atmosphere. It can be a little noisy but I like it. You will not be disappointed. The food came out supper fast.

We've been going to the Glass Lounge for many years - it never changes. The food is great. Portions are huge! Prices are very reasonable. Don't be fooled by the outside of the building. It looks like a tiny little bar but it's amazing what a great dining experience they serve up in that little place.

Recommended by locals as having The Best steaks in town, but oh my....Just Nasty!! We had to sit outside because the flies inside were terrible. The steak is bland and fried, yes Fried, not grilled, yuck. A1 steak sauce (which is a no-no in my book for a true steak eater) didn't even make this palatable...Took it home for the... More

Between Front Street on the Susquehanna River and the railroad tracks, stands the Glass Lounge. Despite the prepossessing façade, the food and service are topflight. Rustic and quaint style do note deteriorate from the quality and quantity of the food and the reasonable prices. The salads are ginormous and fresh. Among a multiple of entrees two stand out. The scallops... More

Even though the steaks seem to be cooked on a flat top, they are well prepared with good flavor. I lean towards the stip steak while my partner likes the delmonico. However, the ham steak always calls our name, 32 ounces. Big enough to share and have leftovers. Good eats. The Death By Chocolate dessert should not be missed.

We were passing in the area and talking about where to eat. Friday and close to 6pm and thought we would give it a try. We were seated and waited on right away. Hubby ordered a tenderloin steak medium rare and I a NY strip medium rare. Hubby's was perfect, mine still had the "moo". They took it back and... More

The service stunk, waited too long for a table, once seated we were basically ignored. The flies are horrible (inside) and they were out of some sections at 6:00 PM (no spaghetti - really? Got a grocery close??) Recommended by a friend, he had not been here for a few years. My recommendation, go elsewhere.
