    Don't go there if your hungry over 1hr 1/2 for food that sucked. Should've known to order never get seafood in Pennsylvania nowhere near the ocean + Way overpriced

    Everything. Kurt Weaver is a creative chef.

    Everything. Seriously. This is hands down one of the best spots in the area - hidden in the hotel nonetheless. Have been 3 times now, and they never disappoint...awesome beer list too!

    The fillet mignon was amazing. Perfectly done, and I'm super picky about my steak.

    Ask for Ben, his service is excellent. Great recommendations, incredible knowledgable about everything from the menu items to the brews on tap.

    Beware: you WILL be cutoff if you appear even slightly intoxicated. Just FYI. Either the bar is extremely cautious, they got in trouble for overserving, or they do not want repeat customers.

    Horrible. Bob Evans next door would have been a better choice. Filet Mignon was the toughest meat I've ever eaten. Portions of the "smalls" entrées are tiny. I'm not a big eater and I left hungry.

    Excellent staff, great food. Simple food, superb seasoning. Miranda was a great server and the chef staff (especially Kurt and Scotty) are some of the best in the area.

    Eat here! Foodies beware, you will never want to leave. Ambiance is perfect, service is friendly and knowledgable. Draft list is great. And the food, don't get me started on the good.

    Worth the 90 minute drive North. Seriously. It's just that good.
