I love going to this place on Thursday night for the burger night. By far the best darn burger on the planet. The special burger concoctions are very interesting. Sloppy Joe on top of a great burger is one of my favorites. The french fries are done to perfection with the right amount of crispiness. The craft beers are always... More

After a long day this is the perfect place to relax with a great drink and delicious, made-to-order food in a very cozy atmosphere. Soups will never disappoint, just as our favorite veal specialties. Don't miss this place! There aren't many around like this anymore!

We went here for a family business dinner to celebrate 32 years. We had to sit at two separate tables, one crammed into a corner of a dated dining area. We moved it so a couple of us could get around the back to sit. To their credit we had excellent service and their entrees were artistically presented. The salad... More

My wife and I dined here last week and chose it because of its TripAdvisor rating. When we drove up to the place we almost turned around. The view from the outside and parking lot does not exactly scream fine dining. When we walked in, for the first 5 seconds, we thought we were in a local bar/pub. Rut-Roh, not... More

Frank and Diannah's is the #1 ranked restaurant in Reading and we can certainly see why. The food was superb and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. Frank, one of the owners, personally greets each guest and stopped by our table several times to make sure we were happy (we were!). Our server was knowledgeable and very helpful. We split thefried... More

Try to make it to every burger night! It is every Thursday night they feature one special custom burger. You can always build your own burger. I highly recommend the pbj and bacon burger it is out of this world. Their other food is also excellent especially the desserts. Everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Also the owner... More

What a great meal we had at the Arbor Inn - Corn meal encrusted cat fish with warm slaw ... Awesome. We had such great service and a lovely evening in a relaxed fun atmosphere. Dessert was delicious - goat cheese cake with fresh figs. If I had room I would have ordered two - settled this issue by taking... More
