My wife and daughter and I had an opportunity to have dinner Friday night in January at bandanas bar and Grill. Great family atmosphere, actually really good food for a place right around the corner. Moderately priced, and a very casual atmosphere. The wait staff were extremely friendly and you had the feeling that they treated you like you have... More

We have eaten here numerous time and have enjoyed it. Tonight though, I had a mushroom risotto that was delicious! This needs to be on the menu! We even had a glass of complimentary champagne to help ring in the new year.

The fish fry at Bandanas is well worth a drive to Youngstown! We try to go to Bandanas a few times a month. The potato skins are a definite every time we go. The service is super friendly and the food is always awesome!

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

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.

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.

Thank marcus h
