This is called The Westy because it's in West Hamburg. People from West Hamburg are called Westies. I've eaten here at least fifty times. It's not superb food, but it's always good food, and plenty of it. Try the cheeseburger pizza, the taco pizza, the meat lover's pizza, the open-faced sandwiches with gravy, the Reubens. They have their own take on fries, and they are good. This is an intensely local place, not a tourist place. The waitresses are always cute and friendly. Nice people. Nice place to go. I've never eaten anything here that I didn't like, and I've never gone away hungry. I prefer much fancier restaurants, but this is comfort food.

First, a word of warning. On maps and some GPS systems, it looks as if there's an easy approach to Westy by leaving I-73 going down 61 and turning right on State St. Don't you believe it. State goes UNDER 61 with no connection, Keep going on 61 until you can do a 160 degree turn onto 4th and follow that back to State.

The parking lot is behind the building and is gravel with rather poor lighting. As it is not in an upscale district, I felt rather uncomfortable going in and out.

That said I have mixed feelings about Westy. My buffalo wings were overdone and much too crispy. However, my wife found the shrimp salad to be excellent. The service was moderate. Nothing to complain about; not much to praise either

We waited twenty minutes for a server to take our order. When she took our order she kept trying to get us to order something from the bar....and was visibly disappointed when we only ordered iced tea. The must wave added too much water when they melted the cheese on my cheese steak as it was very soggy and that made it difficult to eat.

OMG -- try the bavarian pretzel appetizer. four big soft pretzel sticks with melted cheese.....

the cheese steak was good, the steamers were wonderful (we ate 4 dozen), the service was excellent and the weather was nice enough to sit outside on the deck.

all in all, a surprise find outside reading --- and worth the drive!

Riding around on our m'cycles, saw some other bikes pulling in and decided we would follow (Sunday afternoon). Very pleasantly surprised with the wings and cold beer (very reasonable). Sat at bar and young bartender girl was very attentive. Saw other dishes and all looked good to us, will add this to our list.
