Located in Hotel Anthracite with free covered parking. Service was very attentive. A small serving of bruschetta was offered complimentary. The waitress displayed a tray of available meats so one could easily determine portion size. Several of the meats were offered with mashed potatoes and broccolini for an upcharge 0f $2, whereas ordering ala carte would have cost more. They willingly allowed a no cost substitution of one of the 5 sauce choices instead of the one preselected on the menu. They also allowed a change of potato type without additional cost. The food was properly cooked, portions were well sized and the sauce options were very good. The only disappointment was the broccolini which none of liked. There was a good wine selection available. They has a very large tomahawk ribeye that they offered to slice into 3 portion that could be shared. We plan to return.

Prime Rib Special Night was not good. I have been to the steakhouse before and had a very good steak. I was anxious to take my husband and daughter back on prime rib special night
Expecting the same quality. Unfortunately the prime rib was terrible tasting on the verge of going bad. The color was uneven and it had a weird taste. The rest of sides and salad were fine as were
The drinks. We all didn’t feel so good afterwards and were disappointed.

We came here the night before visiting day for dinner. Being from the NY/NJ area we didn’t expect much. However, the food was incredible and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back next year.
The only negative and it’s not a huge deal was that there was a man who was very very loud in the bar area and the sound resonated all the way to the restaurant seating. None of the restaurant staff asked him to lower his voice.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and were pleasantly surprised when presented a key lime brûlée at the end of our meal. The food was top notch and the service friendly and efficient. Can’t wait to go back again.

Overall, we had a great time at KOL. For most of the party, it was their first time visiting this restaurant.

Service was excellent from the moment we got there to the moment we left. Everyone was pleasant, well-informed and great at their job function.

Menu was large - lots of selection, though some of the key items were sold out (crab cake, Delmonico steak and tomahawk steak). Only criticism we had was the timing of our food. All of our side dishes came out well before our steaks, which made the meal a little disjoinThat did not take away from the night, however, as the food was great and the waitstaff were excellent. We were especially thankful for the comp’d desserts. Though it wasn’t necessary, we were all very appreciative.

We will definitely return in the future.

Loved the decor of the restaurant. It was moderately busy for Mothers Day weekend. Very attentive wait staff. A nice selection of menu items if you didn’t want steak. My only complaint would be that the food for each course comes out too fast. We did ask our waitress to slow it down so we can enjoy the main course but it was still too quick. We will go back and try the steaks next time.

We absolutely love our outings to KOL's. The bar service is phenomenal, and they have an excellent and varied wine listing. The food is outstanding, and we have our favorites of course. The house made chips with blue cheese are a must try. The potato soup could be a meal! My favorite entree is a dry aged steak, always done to perfection. Be sure to pick a good topper for it, onions and mushrooms are a good choice.

KOL Steakhouse was a wonderful place to relax and unwind from a busy week. For my wife and I, it was just a date that we needed once in a while. The prices were a little too steep to make it a regular thing for us, but definitely worth it. Food was very good and the service was excellent. We'll be back for another visit.

The food is great and what the staff lacks in polish they make up for with intent. For the price of the dinner, things should be a bit more perfect. There was nothing bad, but things like forgetting to bring steak knives with a steak dinner, having to ask for an ice bucket to keep white wine chilled, and the like was just enough to make the experience a little less stellar. Still an excellent meal though and quite friendly staff.

I was pleasantly surprised by all of the options on the menu. I’m not a big meat eater and there were plenty of choices for me that were not steak. My husband does enjoy a good steak and he said it was delicious. I had a delicious risotto dish that I would get again.

This was some of the best food we've had since moving to PA from NYC. They are really not ready to serve lunch, however. When we were there, we were the only ones eating lunch and the one server was not familiar with the menu items and was unable to answer questions. The food was amazing. The service, not so much.

We were all a little disappointed by the level of service we received on New Year’s Eve. We were told multiple times by multiple staff that someone would be coming to take care of us but the names kept changing. It took quite awhile for us to actually be greeted by our server who we barely saw the entire meal. She never mentioned any specials and was slow to bring drinks, the meat tray, take orders etc. The meat tray was actually presented by another server who also ended up bringing out our food and dropped it off so quickly that she walked away while we were trying to point out the fact that we didn’t have enough knives and needed plates for the Tomahawk Ribeye my husband and daughter were sharing. We had to wait five minutes before we could find someone to ask for either of these things. Our waitress only ever refilled one drink, never asked about our food and only showed back up to try to sell us desserts AFTER the hostess and other waitresses had cleared our table. We couldn’t help but be jealous of the tables beside us who arrived 30 minutes after us and were greeted promptly, heard the specials, ordered drinks, and were eating their entrees before we were.
Frankly I worked in fine dining for years and I was shocked by how evident it was that we were being treated like a throw away table. Perhaps you were short staffed but on New Years Eve with reserved seating we all know that’s unacceptable.

Pleasantly surprised by the tasty food. The hotel & restaurant are new part of a stellar area hospitality group. The decor is ok. The room is to open and still feels like a generic hotel restaurant despite upgraded table setting decor. It lacks intimacy and feels very empty if not filled with people. There must be some structural design elements added to change that feel. Didn’t like being seated by hostess stand and door when place was empty. Felt a draft. Food was very good, albeit a bit pricey for area. It’s a good special occasion restaurant and we will give it another go on a live music night. Would recommend for large groups and special events. Attentive service which is not he norm in this area. Best of luck! I hope this restaurant and hotel have great success!

A gem in the coal region of NE Pennsylvania. Situated in the landmark Hotel Anthracite in Carbondale. A honest to goodness real steak house. Our server, Yvonne could not have been better. A nice touch was the Manager stopping by our table from time to time to check on our experience. This was our second time there and certainly not our last. How can you go wrong with a restaurant owned by the Settler's Inn family of Inns and restaurants?

Many choices on the menu to please everyone ‘s palate! It was like a lunch and dinner menu combined in one! The colossal lump crab meat was the biggest and best I ever had! Pricey at MP of $29 but it was enough to share!?The small salad with Salmon( only $10) rounded out my meal to perfect satisfaction! The rest of group were happy with their steaks and scallops!

A gem in a locale that I expected to find in my neck of the woods. In my book, Kol definitely competes with the big steak house chains. Everything was perfect. It took a little more than an hour to get there, but I cannot wait to go back. Our waitress, Meg could not have been better! We4 did not have to look around to find her. My steak was perfectly done, Pittsburg medium rare.
