                    Food and service were fantastic! The only thing that I would change was the music wasn’t the best for dining.

                    Good food love be the specialty butter with bread. Girls night out with our mom who is 97?yrs young. Chef nice enough to take clams out of the shell for her. She was very appreciative. We will be back

                    The linguine and clams had 0 flavor. It was noodles and water basically. The truffle goat cheese ravioli had hardly any in the entre and was hardly stuffed. Certainly not worth what was charged. The oysters and cocktails were very good though. And our waitress, Karen was nice and came back to check on us frequently

                    Finally had the prime rib here. I’m very fussy about how I like my prime rib and they did not disappoint. Very good flavor. Generous helping of mashed potatoes and fresh broccoli.

                    I took my wife there to celebrate Mother's Day. The food was excellent! Our server was awesome!! My wife has Celiac Disease. Our server (Angela P.) was extremely helpful to ensure that that my wife had no issues and even offered suggestions. The only thing that I was not too appreciative of was that the rock music that they had playing was a little on the loud side. Great experience!!

                    Went for Mother's Day "Brunch" - only complaint is that they didn't actually do a 'brunch' menu but just had their regular lunch/dinner menu. The food & service was fabulous though - a surprising gem in an unlikely location.

                    Whole menu has been shaken up. Many staples have been changed removed. Been an every month diner here. Will go back to try again with new chef. Filet was cafeteria quality, pasta lamb dish had a few bites. Tasted like sour wine. Homemade desserts are now brought in. Great place overall, one in 10 bad experiences. Let’s hope they get the next one good.

                    Our server, Pat, was awesome! Portion sizes were super generous, beautifully presented and delicious! This is a restaurant you shouldn’t miss-legacy owners that have dedicated their professional lives to serving people quality food and beverages. When I come to town this restaurant is on the top of my list along with their sister restaurant, The Ovalon in Hazleton.

                    Overpriced diner food. Wasn’t impressed with this at all. It felt like NJ/NY diner food that was overpriced.

                    We love the Powerhouse! On this visit, however, we were made to wait 10 minutes before anyone greeted us at the front desk. I know it was busy but we could have at least been acknowledged. There were quite a few people waiting at the front desk waiting. Other than that, the food was great, our server was wonderful! We will return to the Powerhouse often.

How do you make a weak martini??!,,,ha,ha Still love the place though,,,Been going for probably 20 years!
