Spectacular location overlooking the river. That alone makes it worth a visit if you are driving north or south past Shamokin Dam. Clean and inviting when you get in the restaurant. Very friendly staff. Great area to sit outside and eat if the weather cooperates....More

Definitely a great choice for pulled pork or chicken! Try the cornbread too! In the warmer months dinner on the deck in the evening is beautiful.

We have been here several times and this dinner did not disappoint. Six of us all ordered different meals and loved all of our dinners. Great food, casual dining atmosphere, and reasonable prices. We really like going to Skeeter’s.
