Our second visit to Pompeii Steakhouse and again we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough for you. We will be back and if anyone is visiting near Carlisle it's worth a trip to have a wonderful steak.

Visiting CVarlisle and wanted a steak. Found this steakhouse on trip. Cannot rave about it enough. It was excellent. Lovely home cooked food and the steak was to die for. Places like this are gems to find. Please visit.
