It was our first time at the Powerhouse Eatery and after reading the reviews we were excited to have a special dinner there however our experience was disappointing. WE drove 30 minutes hoping for a wonderful experience. My husband and I expected a nice quiet atmosphere for a romantic dinner. (as a few reviews showed) We were seated in the back room, the atmosphere back there was extremely loud. While sitting at our table we were only about 3-4 feet away from others dining just a few steps below us so we weren't comfortable staying there to have dinner but against our better judgement we stayed. Dinner was ok but the food didn't have any "WOW" factor except for the peanut butter pie. That was amazing! Sorry to say we both agree we won't be going back there again any time soon.

First time here, the food was amazing!! My filet was cooked to perfection and my husband's prime rib was delicious! Highly recommend, but maybe for special occasions - a bit pricey.

Our server, Pamela, was solicitous and courteous, but not hovering. The portions were more than adequate, and the food was well prepared. The only complaint is that my dining partner is unfamiliar with the term 'home fries' and was disappointed thinking it meant fresh cut fries. Maybe a description on the menu for people traveling through and not used to PA food terms?

Everything was great, service was great, the people were great as well. Only thing I didn’t like was putting people in the booth right behind us. That’s not 6ft but thankfully we were just about to leave. Other than that it was fantastic

Excellent food and service. We e celebrated Mom’ many Birthdays here and always accommodation. This time it was for her respite after a funeral service. She was 103 almost 104 years old. She also enjoyed the several birthdays we held there and found the food delicious.

Had NY strip steak and lollipop lamb chops for appetizer. Both were very good and prepared as requested. It was a Wednesday dinner so Restraurant was not crowded. Bottom line would gladly dine there again.

Had a lovely time at the powerhouse eatery. The restaurant was cute. The staff was amazing! The food was really good. I had the chicken Marsala which was yummy but they didn’t offer noodles/pasta as a starch option. My husband had the prime rib and cleaned his plate. Most of my boys had the filet and they also enjoyed it. Will go back when I visit again!

The seasonal selections are wonderful. The Pumpkin Martini is a must, as is the Flavors of Fall cocktail. As always, Pan Seared Scallops Appetizer (Scallops, Crunchy Fancy Granny Smith Apples & Daikon Radish Salad, Apple Cider Vinaigrette) did not disappoint. The service from the greeting in the lobby to the wait staff was enjoyable as well. This is a great place whether it is for a special nite out or a classy take on comfort food.
