Food was fantastic. Our server was so friendly. Food came out so fast and they had quit a few people there. The style of the place is super cool. Definitely will be back.

I’m honestly speechless! It was terrible, the service, the food, they didn’t even have honey mustard or bbq sauce for my child. Also, when I asked for a loaded baked potato the waitress really told me the best she can do is butter and sour cream! Everything we ordered from the apps to the entrees were disgusting. The only thing that tasted half way ok was the bread they provide for free 🙄

Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Not as great as it used to be. Food was good, not great for the price. Waitress was attentive but looked at me like I had 2 heads when I asked for regular butter as we did not like the whipped fruity butter they brought. I would return but unfortunately my fiancé was not impressed.

This is one of many times I have dinner at the Powerhouse Restuarant in White Haven, PA. It was busier than usual due to the HOLIDAYS. Service was adequate and food was very tasty. I Ordered an appetizer due to the volume of people, but the wait time for our food was not that bad. I was not impressed with their new recipe for their Crab Cakes. I would prefer the old way. The prices have gone up tremendously, but understandable with COVID shortages and low staffing. Thank you for all you do for your community.

Angela our wait staff was fabulous. Food was great but a tad salty hence the 4 star vs 5... other than that, delicious Christmas Eve dinner and the place looked so festive. It was our second time there since we pass it on Route 80 going to see family. Took us close to 1 hour from the Lehigh Valley. Will def stop again in our travels.

Our 1st time after years of driving by on I-80. We moved to Wisconsin and we’re driving back to PA for the holidays and made a point to finally give it a go and are SO glad we did, everything was excellent! Can’t wait to make it a usual stop!

This tucked away treasure has a lot to offer. Great drinks and food, friendly service and wonderful ambiance. Mike was our waiter both times and he made our experience that much more enjoyable! I’d recommend wholeheartedly, and look forward to our next anniversary trip!

All the servers and staff have been consistently outstanding.

Would like to see more entrees at an affordable price.

I. Miss the inclusion of soup or salad with the entree. I would eat there more often if the prices were a bit lower but understand the challenges restaurants have today.

Great Sunday brunch with live jazz
Music like the Sunday menu you can
Get egg breakfast dishes or lobster roll and salads it’s going to be a regular Sunday stop for us 👍

Service was excellent, atmosphere was top notch, wonderful seating. Food was good but could have been better. Noted it was a birthday celebration & received a free dessert which was unexpected. Would give 5 stars if main course was improved just slightly.

I gave it 3 stars overall because we’ve been there a couple of times at different seating times and they are always out of prime rib. I specifically made this reservation on a Saturday in December, thinking we might have a better chance of having the prime rib( Christmas shoppers and get togethers) but was disappointed again. Not only were they out of prime rib, they were out of all the specials! Whoever plans the menu there , it would be appreciated by me and other customers if they could plan enough prime rib for folks who can’t get there by 5;00 for dinner.
As far as the wait staff, there’s none better. Professional and helpful.
The food in general is very very good.

Considering the lack of finer cuisine in the Pocono’s area, Powerhouse Eatery is quite a surprise! I was very excited about the options on the menu (and equally surprised at the high prices for steaks especially,) but you get what you pay for and my bone-in pork rib chop was simply outstanding and worth every penny! I noticed the couple sitting next to me ordered the Prime rib and that looked amazing as well. (I sat at the bar.) I also had raw oysters to start, which were also very good. It was busy, so I did wait a bit for drink refills, but I did like that the staff worked together to get drinks and food to everyone, you don’t always see that type of cooperation. I enjoyed my experience there very much and can’t wait to return to try more things on the menu. Nice work PE!

A high end restaurant in White Haven. The food was excellent as was the service. It is pricey but the online menu provides prices so no surprise. Their drink menu also includes prices which was welcome since drinks vary widely from place to place. The ambience is also excellent and the sections are divided well which gives at least a bit of privacy.
