We use to go to Julie's alot. Over the past year or two, the menu started to get thin and the service started to strain. Last night it hit a new low! One bartender (who was also the waiter in the bar) meant we waited a long time for menus. (BTW - the bartender was a great guy!) We finally... More

This place is a must for an Nepa newbie. It's a local favorite and always a good time. Best and most creative drinks around. The Mexican food and nachos (cheese,sauce and chips) are great is you are looking for some bar food or just a snack.

Julia's has been a landmark in the Old Forge area for as long as I can remember. They are well known for their amazing drink selection. For as many times as I have been there, I have never eaten there until last week. Why have I waited so long? The food was fantastic. I will be back soon.

My sister and I visit the restaurant at least twice a month. Daryl and Matt are the best workers ever!!!!! This week my sister ordered a porketta hoagie. She was told it comes with mayo, tomato and lettuce. She didn't want any of it except cheese. She was told it would be extra. When the bill arrived, the sandwich was... More

I have been here a few times for drinks and enjoyed the place. I went back to try their food and was very disappointed. The food was not fresh, the chicken actually tasted like it was previously cooked. The service was SLOW, we were there for nearly 2 hours with 1 other table occupied. There are other places to eat...

We stopped at Julia's, because we received a gift certificate and it will be our only visit. We sat in the bar area of the restaurant and noticed that the place is quite small. The bartender pointed us towards a list of dinner specials on the wall. That seemed nice except about a quarter of them were not available. We... More

The Burritos are the best I have ever had with huge pieces of chicken and rice, served over lettuce and tomatoes and covered with melted cheese. They are well-known for their crabcakes too. And even more so for their famous libations.

Great place to sit back and relax in Old Forge. One of the best places to meet friends and have the most exotic drinks in the area. Great daily food specials that can't be beat.

On the corner of Main St. near Old Forge Taylor line. There is a small parking lot and more street parking all around. Most entry requires a step or three as I recall...if it matters call to verify, there may be a HC entry somewhere. this has been here many years, maybe over 100...the decor in pub and restaurant aren't...
