This little dive bar has the best food in the area. We stopped here on the way to see Old Fort Niagara and are so happy we did. Don't let the exterior deter you, food was made fresh and drinks were cold. I had a hamburger with their hand cut homemade potato chips and my husband ordered the Philly cheese... More

I love Bandanas!!! This is mine and my families favorite place to eat. My son hurries home from school on Fridays to get a fish fry. I have never had a bad experience. The potato skins are unique and delicious. I like to try the daily specials Rob and his kitchen staff are very creative and make awesome food. My... More

Good spot to just grab a bite. It is a bar atmosphere but suitable for families because the restaurant is separate from the bar area. They have tables outside where you can sit in the summer.

We stop for take out food the bartender was friendly and nice we order are food and... More

This is a cool spot for any occasion. Couples,friends or family you will have no problem finding something on the menu that you will enjoy! Staff is friendly! Food is good and so are the prices. If you like adult beverages with your meal they also have a full service bar.

Arrived at 5:45, which was perfect because 15 minutes later there were no inside tables. Food was great, service was great, large menu with something for everyone. Reasonable prices too. Close to the campground, which was great for a quick, tasty meal.

Came here on the suggestion of relatives we were visiting. Very cool and unassuming place. Best french toast we've ever had. Service was fast and friendly considering we were a group of 10. Even the cooks were friendly as they took some of the younger kids into the kitchen and showed them how they cook the food.

We ate here one night while camping at 4 mike creek state park. The staff was great, the food was great! They went out of their way to please our picky daughter, even bringing her additional food at no cost! At the end of the meal all the kids got to pick a bandana to keep from a big rod.

Ended up in the area later at night. Didn't know where else to eat and this was about the only place that had food. The place was interesting. I could imagine going in there to watch nascar and yet I could imagine the place filled with bikers. I place a food order and found the food was very good and... More

Youngstown is lucky to have so many good restaurants - it is amazing to have so many in such a little town and Bandana's is one of the best! My friend said tonight that she thinks you should always get the nightly specials because they are so great. 2 of us ordered the specials and they were as she said... More
