Quaint little place in rural Pennsylvania. A place noted for their steak and homemade fries. Everything was good except the salad, a little wilted. The homemade fries was delicious and one order was enough to share with two people. The steaks weren't bad either. The...More

While this establishment is in dire need of structural and cosmetic updates it is always a good time. Even though they are understaffed, the staff that is there is always friendly. Part of the draw of this place is the clientele. We've rarely walked away...More

Sometimes an aimless Sunday drive with friends turns into a great find. That was the case earlier today. We found ourselves driving in the Halifax area and remember that there was this legendary eating place where the steaks hung over the plate and the french...More

Turn left onto Powells Valley Road, go about 7 miles and you will come to this rustic hotel with a great eating experience. The steak dinner is great. Start off you dinner with a drink from the bar. Eat on!
