Gather ‘round the campfire! Our distinctive, open kitchen concept – surrounded by a line of intimate counter seats – will immerse you in an inviting experience of “front row dining.” You can even strike up a lively conversation with your server to learn more about our ample selection of Pennsylvania =craft brews.

What’s there to see?? In a nod to the long cooking traditions of Argentina and Spain, our kitchen crew prepares your meals and cooks them over a “live” wood fire and embers to create a refined, pure wood flavor.
Sure, you can sit at a table…or dine alfresco on our patio…but remember, a counter seat gives you a clear view to your very own cooking show! So, belly up!

Great hideaway place. I was surprised that it wasn’t busier on a Friday night. The food was fantastic and I loved my house made cocktails! I have been recommending this place to all my friends. Will be returning soon

First time there and it didn't disappoint. Very cool atmosphere and the food was excellent. Son loved the burger and my salmon was cooked perfectly. Free parking in their lot was a bonus for the area.

A great spot to meet with friends. We had an early Saturday supper to avoid the crowd and FSPH was kind enough to let us linger until things got busy. The gang enjoyed their meals, brews, and the attention of our server. Been to the FSPH 3 times and will be back (with friends).

The service, food and cocktails were very good. My only complaint is that it was about 90 degrees in there. I saw some guys who had sweaters over shirts taking sweaters off. I know it’s an open cooking concept, but it was uncomfortable in there. Aside from that, the crab cake sandwich and pierogies were amazing. We had friends with us trying the restaurant for the first time and they said definite go back!

I made a reservation for my fiance's birthday, putting in the reservation notes that we were coming for a birthday. When we got there the hostess was overly curt, the menu was not what I had expected- I should have looked at it online, so really my fault but still disappointing- and the tables and chairs were all wobbly. We didn't even wait for the server to come, we went elsewhere.

If you sit at the bar, you can actually watch your food being prepared. The cooks were fun to watch and took great pride in their work. The french fries are amazing and they have 40 beers on tap. We had a burger and the salmon and both were fantastic.

Disappointing food!! My 3rd visit and each worse than previous. Average undercooked cold burger, stale chips and ill-prepared dip, wilted room temp leaf salad, etc etc. Really loud even though only 3/4 full.

Food was excellent and service was great too. The salads were really good and the fries were amazing. So many good options. Drinks were good as well and I love the fact that you can get an 8 oz. beer so you can try more types. It was pricier than I expected though.

I found this little place on accident and suggested to some friends that we meet there, for an early dinner. I made a reservation and my table was available upon arrival. My waiter was friendly and very personable. My real issue lies within the food. The presentation goes with the description on the menu but, seriously lacking in the taste department. Also the drinks were mediocre and overpriced.
