    Once again, an item publicized on their menu was not available. I’ve heard from multiple different people they’ve experienced the same disappointment. Either serve it, or take it off the menu.

    We went to Kevin’s for a family get together and had such a wonderful time. Our server Jenifer was absolutely fantastic and the team was always checking in with our table and clearing our table as needed with follow up courses perfectly timed. Thank you very much and we look forward to coming back.

    It was our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. The table side Caesar was amazing as was the duck. Dave felt the highlight was the bread pudding. The service 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.

    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.
