Small, intimate bar with good food and drinks

I had the chance to eat and drink here while attending a convention at the hotel. The food was much better than most other bar/hotel food and the costs are inline for a hotel bar (aka slightly higher than elsewhere). The waitresses were friendly and helpful while the bartender treated everyone... read more

Went to the bar after dinner for a quiet drink with 2 mates, but quickly departed due to the stench of a hundred smokers. The Hilton needs to get with the times and ban smoking inside.

We had the good fortune of this place being nearly empty on fourth of july weekend. At first thought this was not the best sign, an empty restaurant on a Saturday night, but proved to be a blessing. Felt like the place was let out just for our private date night hosted by a wonderful Irish men regaling us with... More

Excellent light meal. Filet crosstown and the lobster appetizer. Good flavor, good service, a nice alternative in downtown Scranton.

The PJ's burger was delicious. I was able to swap fries for Caesar salad and the beer was cold and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful, far more welcoming than the Hotel restaurant.

The atmosphere was fun, our server was a gem. We ordered the Lobster Gouda Mac and it was out of this world! One of the best foods I may have ever eaten. I got PJ's Pub Burger (a bacon cheeseburger) and it was delicious. Attentive and quick service right inside the hotel we were staying at for the night. Would... More

After a long day's drive, we had a quick meal in this restaurant. The food, while not very elaborate, was exceptionally good. Would go there again if we were in Scranton.

The crab cake sandwich was the best ever. The brownie for desert is not a bad choice either. For a hotel bar, this was exceptional.
