    Service and the food were very good overall. Recommend the seafood pasta sambucca and the pork chop. The bread pudding was excellent.

    Valentine’s Day dinner. We wanted to order our appetizers first then our entree - just so we were not rushed. We were gruffly informed we had to put the appetizer and entree in at the same time. So be it - as long as entrees did not come out while we were enjoying the appetizers. Timing actually worked out well except my wife was delivered the wrong entree. They took both entrees back to the kitchen and shortly thereafter both came back out. Hers was correct and prepared excellently. My entree was transferred from my old plate to a new one. Wasn’t bad but wasn’t as good as we have had here before. Drinks were top notch as usual.

    The Service was excellent. We had the Acorn Squash soup and house salad, both were delicious. For entrees, we had the honey glazed pork chop, veal schnitzel, and salmon. We couldn't have been more pleased. Two deserts were shared bread pudding (more than enough for 2) and creme Brule, outstanding.

    Food was amazing, I have a gluten and dairy allergy - the chef was very accommodating with the swordfish special to meet my needs. My bf and his mom loved their shrimp and scallop sambuca that had homemade noodles! Mark was our server who was wonderful, very personable!

    Scallops were OUTSTANDING - melted in your mouth. The Chili butter sauce was just enough hot. The chicken orchiaetta my wife had was equally great. You can't fail at Kevin's!

    Kevin's is a classy- yet comfortable dining option that is great for many occasions. The atmosphere is adequate, and the staff is exceptional. Each meal is a masterpiece from the chef- and there is not a bad item on the whole menu. At Kevin's, you have to ability to create one of the best 3 course meals in the Wyoming valley!

    The staff was very accommodating to our needs. My father in law was in a wheel chair so they set up a table out of the way and was perfect for him and the rest of us. The service was wonderful; food was delicious. We were surprised at how crowded it was for a snowy Friday evening, but everyone was anxious to get out and knew this was a great place to go enjoy a meal and relax.

    Kevin’s is a good place to go if you want an overall great dining experience. The character of the repurposed use of the building was great. The food was very good, and the service was excellent from the moment we walked in. It got a little noisy as the evening went on but that is part of the vibe so it didn’t bother us much at all. I would highly recommend you give Kevin’s a try.

    Shrimp cocktail is a great value. Caesar salad is wonderful with a nice lemon zest. We had the sea bass with a crab sauce which melted in your mouth. Shout out to John and Jen: in spite of a full house their usual outstanding service did not miss a beat. Kevin’s is a consistent winner which is why it is one of our favorites.

    We took friends for their first time, it did not disappoint us. Started with excellent cocktails, fresh oysters, Cesar salad made fresh at the table, entrees were excellent! A hot chocolate dessert was shared and the ladies had espresso martini’s . The restaurant was decorated for Christmas and the music played was a great mix of favorites

    It was our anniversary, I noted that at reservation, they didn’t acknowledge. We got stuck in the worst seat in the building. Service was not good, server never came around, rushed us out and food was not worth the price. Wouldn’t go back. Don’t waste your money. Super poor experience.
