The Seafood Platter (fried) was burnt ! The batter was so hard could not eat. Will never eat there again. The price is too high for the amount of food you get.
I would have sent it all back but there was a trama/drama going on in the Patio with a sizable birthday party going on. Josh charged the family $1.00 per piece of cake which the people had brought with them. The real kicker is someone in the kitchen sat something on top of the cake box and smashed the cake ! Then the staff had the nerve to bring around the desert tray expecting them to purchase his goodies.
Not a great way to operate a business. Sorry but I'll spend my money at a restaurant that operates in a "professional manner"

Not good seating location.
Couldn't eat most of the steak because of the gristle.
Asked for a baked potato instead of french fries and didn't get the fries but was charged extra for the baked potato.
Restaurant didn't offer to make an adjustment on the bill.

We found this a good place to eat but not often since it is a bit high priced for what you get.
Inside is a tad to dark I had a hard time reading the menu. We like the back porch when it is not reserved by a group the natural lighting is much better during the day time hours.
People are very friendly and nice, food is a little slow getting to you but very good. So don't think you can eat a fast meal here. Tables are rather close since this is a house made into a restaurant.
It has a lot of family photos hanging on the walls in memory of the Grandmother. (a family run business)

When you finish your meal they will bring out a tray of great deserts they are very good but again they are not cheap you pay for good food.Good for couples leave the kids at home for this visit.

Sweet place, back porch is open in the summer and it is fun and spacious. The restaurant is housed in a converted home so the seating inside the home can be tight, sometimes within 2-3 feet of other quests. It is decorated with warm family photos and antiques. The food was great when they opened but has suffered these last years during the recession. Dinner is expensive for Punxsutawney, but lunch is very affordable. Over the years, they seem to have managed to hire staff who are upbeat and welcoming. My favorite part of the restaurant is the candlelit side porch. Lots of parking. Bring your own wine, but know you will pay for the decanting service.
