We eat at the Ovalon frequently. It is a good place when we want a nicer dining experience but don't want to travel to far from home. I have never had a bad meal there. This is one of the few places that my husband can get a steak done Pittsburgh rare (Black & blue) and get it done properly.... More

Plenty of food; fresh baked bread with every meal; House balsamic with dried blue cheese on salad is the best I ever tasted; Seafood cooked to perfection; Steaks grilled to perfection; Excellent service! Bar area is lively and dinner menu availability- our favorite place to walk in for a great meal!

Truly the best place to eat in the Hazleton area if you want a little upscale place to eat. You can sit at the bar if you're in town on business by yourself & feel very comfortable. The bar crowd is friendly & the bartenders the absolute best!!!! Service is impeccable! If you're celebrating something special or have a group... More

Had birthday reservations cancelled due to weather. Called and Ovalon was open . Placed telephone order in route. Sipped tea and had pleasant conversation and in 2o minutes had fabulous birthday food! Feast fit for my 93 year young queen. They saved her celebration and the food was wonderful. Yet another reason I love this restaurant .

We had been to the Ovalon many years ago, and on the chance passing of the area decided to go there again. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has subdued lighting with two eating areas around a central bar. One area has raised booths, the other area has open tables and is more formal. You can also eat at the... More

My parents used to take me and my brothers to the Ovalon when I was a kid. That was about 50 years ago. It was very good then, and it's just as good now. Their homemade Italian bread is one of a kind, nice and light with a crisp crust. Very good menu with lots of choices. I had a... More

We have eaten in this restaurant for some time now off and on. The food was always to our satisfaction. Although the place is small it is very nice. Would most definitely return. The Ovalon is a restaurant that has been in the same location for as long as I can remember, which is more then 45 years.

I love the atmosphere of the Ovalon and have for years. However, I was in shock at the menu prices for dinners on my last visit. I went out with my family for a special dinner and was going to get a lobster. I changed my mind when I saw their price of $54.95. I got another dinner instead. It... More

Family Owned & Operated Since 1946 the Ovalon Bar & Grill is Hazleton's longest standing fine dining restaurant. Today the Ovalon is a Italian fine dining tradition, and stands as the roots of the Scalleat Hospitality Group's three restaurants

Our chefs feature Italian Classics -- as well as contemporary offerings - in our wide-ranging entree selections. For those that enjoy a lighter fare, a sandwich or a small plate at our smoke free bar is an excellent option. Families can sit and appreciate a relaxing meal with their children, who can order from the children's menu. We also have a full menu available for takeout.
