Great food and really good service. We took our 3 kids and on our way home they asked if we could go back the next day. I really like that they have salmon and steak on the kids menu.

Food was very disappointing. The risottos were nothing more than under cooked rice. We usually love their food but tonight was not up to standards. Even the Kale and quinoa salad had only two tablespoons of quinoa. We have had all of these dishes before and they were great but sadly not tonight. Service was good

Took over an hour for our food to arrive and wasn’t how it was described on the menu. No apology. Waitress didn’t come back to our table after she took our order until we received the check.

We have been here many times. Our server seemed a bit off but he may have had too many tables at the same time. Our food was very good but then later at night it bothered both my father and I. We did not have the same food or drink as one another.

Breakneck Tavern never disappoints me! I had the scallops and a Caesar salad. Both were amazing. Service was very good. I’ve never had a bad experience here.

As PA relaxes COVID restrictions, we returned to Breakneck Tavern for lunch and had another very good meal. My wife tried the salmon with jambalaya risotto and I had the scallops. The risotto is very spicy, so we traded. I though the salmon was overcooked. She tried the beat salad and said it was good. I had the potato and sausage soup which is spicy but very good. I like spicy foods. Overall a nice afternoon out. We will return.

Our waiter wore a mask but there were other staff that were openly not wearing masks. Disappointed as I like this place but will hesitate to go back.

Excellent food. The lack of masks that the wait staff had on was concerning, but we just won’t go again until the mask order is lifted.

We were excited to try Breakneck tavern. The draft beer list was excellent.
appetizer arrived at the same time as the entrée which was disappointing. The wrong burger was served and although quick to replace, it was so well done I couldn't eat it.
We were also the only table not served water. Might give it another try for beer list and outdoor dining opportunity, but overall disappointing expereince.

First time for most of our group of 6. Great meal and fun atmosphere. Was noisy but that’s expected with many hard surfaces and ceiling. Only issue was the server didn’t return to fill water glasses, or come to each person for a dessert order. Never got to order after-dinner coffee.

I had never been here before, but, being a foodie, I looked the menu up.ahead of time. I had the spicy Calamari for an app and it had a nice kick from the slices Jalapeños and chili sauce...the Calamari was tender and not overcooked. I also got a side Ceaser salad and added Anchovies, whic I love and mist people hate...delicious. my entree was the Cajun Blue Crab pasta. I wia
Sh it was a little more Cajuny, but other than that it was yummy...lots of piecea of Blue crab, smoked corn, sliced bell peppers and a Cajun cream sauce. Lastly, I took home a piece of Tiramisu and it was tasty. So, in summary, everything was good and I will be going back in the future.

Went to dinner with a group of 4. We sat down at 7. We didn’t get our meals until 8:30. The food was cold and led us to believe our food was forgotten. Nothing was said by the service about being sorry for the wait and the manager just stood there. A table beside us came in 30 minutes after us and got their food before us, eat and left before we even got our food.

The second trip here was not a disappointment - food portions are generous. The only comment I have is that the burgers are a little on the dry side (though I attribute that to lower fat content, so not a big negative).

Cajun crab pasta dish was a hit. The Breakneck burger was good not great - something missing- maybe sauce or condiment. Service was very prompt and extremely friendly.

Food and service were great. We were satisfied with the menu and cocktail selections. The back room needs to be freshened up - it looks a little dingy. And with large parties in that room, it gets loud. Still, overall it was a pleasant dining experience and we will go back.
