Family Owned & Operated Since 1946 the Ovalon Bar & Grill is Hazleton's longest standing fine dining restaurant. Today the Ovalon is a Italian fine dining tradition, and stands as the roots of the Scalleat Hospitality Group's three restaurants

Our chefs feature Italian Classics -- as well as contemporary offerings - in our wide-ranging entree selections. For those that enjoy a lighter fare, a sandwich or a small plate at our smoke free bar is an excellent option. Families can sit and appreciate a relaxing meal with their children, who can order from the children's menu. We also have a full menu available for takeout.

Cozy and Charming

Excellent wait staff and good food. We usually eat at the bar and the selection is very good offering small plates, specials, and a wide selection of Italian specialty foods. My favorite side is the home fried potatoes with mixed peppers and onions on top!

Constantly good food and changing specials at a great price is what makes this restaurant a good choice. They also have a plentiful dessert menu to go along with their menu. The steaks are good, the appetizers are good, the meatball with scamuz is really tasty which makes this our absolute go to every time we are here for business.... More

Patronized this excellent restaurant so often the waitress (Natalie) doesn't even ask what I want she knows my order by heart. The filet minion is always done to perfection and the staff could not be any more accommodating or friendly. They treat you like a family member.

We stopped while traveling north from South Carolina. Needed a quick dinner. Food was decent but the location and atmosphere were a bit strange. Not great neighborhood. Pleasant staff. Grilled chicken quite good. That's about it.

Great food! The staff is very friendly. Excellent service! Ask the server about her turtle, there's a nice story about it. The steak del monico was great.

Lovely atmosphere. I feel like I am back in the 80's which I enjoy, and everyone is friendly, if you sit at the bar! It does take pretty long to get your meal, so be prepared knowing that. Chicken parm is fabulous, so are the salads, eggplant parm,. I've been here twice, and would definitely return if in the area.

We went here for New Year's Eve dinner with the family. My filet alla greek, which was ordered medium well, came out medium rare. I sent it back once and the waitress didn't even check to see if it was better. I wanted to send it back again, but never had the opportunity. We also ordered steaks for take out... More
