This is a busy, popular place for great food. I had the rib special, and they were delicious. The BBQ sauce was sweet, but hot at the same time. The red pepper rice was very tasty. We has a Mayan brownie which had a taste of cinnamon, but a subtle peppery undertone as well. It went well with the southern tier choklat beer on tap. This is always a great meal, and the service is great, too.

If you are in Irwin and want a nice local place for dinner and a few drinks this is a good choice. I was on a business trip when hurricane Sandy blew up the coast and the weather even this far inland was miserable. I didn't want to travel too far and the hotel I was staying at recommended this place. It's small but comfortable. The menu has all the basics but it's all homemade, even the salad dressings. I ordered the skirt steak but they were out so substituted a NY strip as a substitute. It came with a chipolte glaze the was very good. The steak was cooked perfectly. I also tried their house wedding soup and it was chock full of veggies, meatballs and pasta. Definately homemade. The bar has a good selection of beers and seems to be a favorite local hangout. The waitress was very friendly. I would definately come here again.

Food is fantastic - especially the seafood pasta dish. Warm greeting with lots of friendly chatter. Prices seemed high though.

Walking into this place, I start singing the song from Cheers. Comfortable, friendly, and even though everybody does not really know my name at Fontana's, it's every bit as inviting. Great food, be it the lunch menu, the dinner menu or just bar munchies. Beer selection is good also, and with this combination, it is a great place to catch the game, stop by for a quick lunch, or celebrate a special occasion.
