I'm sorry I have to write this because I had high hopes. The start of my experience was great, the place is cute, offering both indoor and outdoor seating. We were seated right away and was able to put in our drink orders and then food. I must say the food is absolutely delicious but the service was anything but. At first I didn't notice but my friend did right away, for us things were different than the others around us, our time seemed "rushed", are you done, would you like that boxed...as if they wanted us out. Then my friend ordered a drink 5 minutes after we saw the waiter bring out a drink to someone else. He told her the bar closed at 9pm, the time was now 9:34....but you brought the other person a drink out at 9:29 so it didn't add up. When she asked for the manager, the manager appeared with an attitude and not too happy to rectify the situation. Voices were raised by both my friend and the manager- extremely unprofessional. She couldn't care less we were paying customers. To wrap this up, great food, lousy and demeaning service. Horrible experience!!!!

Great food and ambience. Service just not polished nor very attentive. Apps are very attractive and delicious, but entrees are heavy on the burger options. Overall, a nice place to dine out.

First time visiting and it won't be the last! Fried Chicken sandwich was delicious. Not greasy and no problem with digestion. Had Hamburger also very good. We shared both. Venue is divided into 2 sections. If Pizza is chosen you eat in one side. Sat in window seats looking out at York Rd. which was away from other tables! Server Joe was professional and and answered all our questions about menu. Outside dining is available.

Really nice place. We have had 2 experiences here. Once in the restaurant and once pizza take out.

As far as the restaurant, the food, service, and atmosphere were really nice. We really wanted to try different items on the menu since we haven’t been out for so long. We had the Brussels sprouts, Risotto, croquettes, and a salad as appetizers and they were all really well prepared. For entrees we split the filet because we were pretty satisfied by this point. It was excellent. Drinks were great and well made. In fact i wanted something off menu and the bar tender was able to recreate it perfectly. Really was impressed. They do a nice job. Also wanted to mention that the atmosphere is great. Very different from other restaurants in the area. More like what you find downtown without having to make the drive. They had an outdoor area as well. Not a make shift because of COVID but a really well laid out patio in the back. Would be a cool spot to have drinks.

We eventually ordered a pizza from there a few weeks later. Asked for it well done and boom it was exactly how we like it. The crust couldn’t have been better.

We have eaten here a few times. On both sides of the building. The restaurant side has delicious food. The specials are fantastic along with the rest of the menu. It has a wonderful atmosphere that makes you want to relax and enjoy yourself. Waitstaff is great. They have the knowledge of food and beverages being offered. The pizza side of the building has wonderful pies with great combinations of toppings. We absolutely love it here and will go often.

The caramelized bourbon brussel sprouts at this place are unbelievable, along with the Salmon in crab sauce that was the fish of the day!! Tried the Pumpkin martini for the first time and it was like drinking a dessert. It was perfectly balanced so I ended up ordering 2!! Oh and try the jerk cauliflower salad or watermelon salad, you won’t be disappointed !!

There were several starters on the on-line menu that were not on the dining-in menu, which was disappointing as we came with the intent to order most of them as dinner. For starters, the brussels sprouts were great. I enjoyed the pot roast (leftovers made a great sandwich). My wife chose the scallops, which were okay, but unexceptional. It was on the pricey side.

Great food and drinks. I didn’t realize the place was essentially brand new. They are still working on one side of the restaurant: adding another bar and probably some seating. Service was great everyone was super friendly.

On the pricier side but with the quality of the food and drinks it was worth every penny. You get what you pay for! I had the NY Strip and it was massive...couldn’t finish it. My wife had some of the best pot roast I’ve ever tasted.

Go...you will enjoy it!

Are indoor last Saturday. Service was great (in spite of the fact that there’s a new rule in PA that you have to order food before cocktails). Food was good - delicious Brussels sprouts, good fried chicken (but the piece of chicken on the sandwich was ridiculously large and impossible to eat without some alterations). If you ever are at Leila’s, it’s the same owner and a very similar menu. The interior seems not as nice as it used to be. I think there used to be a nice banquette which is no longer there - maybe a Covid requirement? But we will be back.

We were first time visitors after reading some good reviews. The food is outstanding. We dined in the little sunken brick patio in the back and it was very charming. Our waitress was delightful. It was so nice to have a wonderful meal during these difficult times. Once again the food is OUTSTANDING! really really good. We loved it. We used our iPhone to play some music because it was a little quiet back there- so maybe some soft music outside would be nice addition.
