The trail goes right through Duncannon (one of the few towns that it runs right thru). Great place for Hikers to stop, eat and stay.

We stopped by here several times but one time we stopped after hiking the Appalachian Trail with our dog. Even though she wasn't allowed in the dining area, they gave her water and food in the foyer and allowed her to stay there while we ate. The food is very good but it is the owners who really make this... More

While staying there during my AT thru-hike, I was having a beer, when the bartender referred to a person, as a "negro." After my look of surprise, he repeated it for good measure. Good job hiring a racist, to serve people. The place is falling apart, and will soon be condemned. As long as they tolerate racism, it's not worth... More

It is more hyped than it should be, but the cost of beer makes it forgettable quickly, allowing you to just sit back and enjoy. DO NOT DRINK TOO MUCH THAT YOU CONSIDER STAYING! The food was honestly forgettable. If you just walked 1100 miles, sure, eat up, but the rest of the world may consider other options.

Thru hiking the AT, stopped in the Doyle for a night. The owner's Pat and Vicky are salt of the earth. Great food, good rates, kind people.

In our group we had different burgers, a pork bbq, french fries, soup and wings. All were delicious and we would all order the same items again. Portion size is good too. Prices are moderate. The rolls on the sandwiches were very fresh and tasty. Owners were fun and personable. It is smaller inside with 3 or 4 large tables... More

The Doyle certainly lived up to its reputation. I walked in as an AT hiker and Pat and Charlie took great care of me. The food at the Doyle was fantastic! Pat personally described what he had and how he prepared it, and it came out great. I had steamed clams as an appetizer and his pork chop special, which... More

We stopped here because we heard about how friendly they were to hikers on the AT (Appalachian Trail). The owners could not have been nicer, we asked what they were famous for and he patiently bragged about all the good stuff on the menu and options for our kids. Lots of history here, postings from hikers passing through. Later on... More

The owners run the restaurant themselves, and I must say that they do an awesome job. The service is very personable and the food was extraordinary. If you find yourself in this remote town off the Appalachian Trail, do yourself a favor and go there for a meal - if you're lucky, they'll have their catfish special!
