We stop here as often as we can. We’re from State College; but my sister-in-llaw and her family live in Williamsport so it’s always high on the list! Staff is always super friendly, cheerful...food is so delish! Even as a vegan I can find a...few items...more would be better, but as I recall from my meat eating days, it’s all good! Always have a decent selection of craft beers as well. Good prices too...you will like this place!!More

This restaurant continues to update booths, furniture, decor, and menu items. I only visit once or twice a year, but the patio is great for summer dining and for there are several areas inside for seating. The bar is always busy

Service was off. Appetizers delivered with salads and soups so did not get a chance to enjoy them so took them home as dinner was delivered 5 minutes later. Onion soup was good, prime rib portion was on the small side and very fatty. Others...enjoyed their dinners. It was not busy when we were sat so there was no excuses for the rushed service and the service turned what could have been a better meal into so so meal.More

Johnson’s has the best creme brûlée and I’ve traveled a lot for it. Make sure you get that first so you have room! Menus is nice, isn’t overly huge on choices so they can focus on fewer well made dishes. They have something for everybody...and fair prices. Clean and very friendly. Fast service and a warm cozy feel to the place.More

This cafe is quite popular for a small town. The meals are delicious, as are the specialty salads and sandwiches. The steak dinners and Turkey are my preference, just like home cooking. Also, the cheese steak sandwiches and fries make a great meal, along with...a cold beer. Prices are very reasonable and they run daily specials.More

This is a regular dining place for us. The food is consistent and delicious. When we don't feel like eating out we can order online and pick up when we're ready. Will keep coming back. Oh, and great wait staff.

My husband and I ate here for our 52nd wedding anniversary. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and very attentive. The menu was extensive. The prices seemed a bit high to me, but when our food came we were pleased to see that...portions were bigger than we expected. Everything was delicious. It's an older place but that didn't bother us. It was clean and sort of cozy and we were happy we chose this place to celebrate. We will definitely go back.More

Well, when we first came in the door it was awkward, no mood music or anything. Just a few full tables. The waitress was not extremely friendly and when she put 2 tables together for us she put us right in the entryway. My husband’s...chair was on the doormat. The waitress took our order and when she brought our drinks she spilled quite a bit of my youngest daughter’s milk and didn’t clean it. Then we waited and waited for our meal. It took a very long time. The food was great, even though my husband asked for no jalapeños on his wrap and they put them on it. He also ordered a fruit cup rather than chips, which he didn’t get and he got chips. I say it’s too pricey because honestly when my family goes to lunch we don’t want to spend over $40. All salads and most wraps were around 10... my suggestion would be to offer smaller portions for those who don’t want a huge lunch and offer lower prices on those meals. Other than that it was good🤷‍♀️ Needless to say too many strikes against them, we will not be going back to this place.More
