This my wife's and my "go to place" in Scranton. Great service, gourmet food, reasonable prices and classic ambiance. You will not be disappointed.

While traveling with friends, my husband and I suggested this restaurant for a late lunch. My husband ordered the yellow fin tuna, I had a burger we were both happy with our selections. Our friends ordered a variety of dishes, everyone said we made a good choice with this restaurant. I thought the service was particularly good, our waitress was... More

Friends took us to this restaurant while we were visiting Scranton and our meal was very good. My filet was among the best I've had. The friends recommended that we order sides to be shared and that proved to be a good idea. My favorite was the mushrooms and onions but the creamed spinach and asparagus were also very good....

We visited on a Friday night about 8:30. They were pretty dead but we had made reservations just in case. We got bread and butter served on the house first. I then ordered a martini and my bf ordered a beer. They were pricey, the martini was 10.50. We ordered a crab cake as an appetizer which was OK at... More

My boyfriend and I just had the porterhouse steak for two, and we were pleasantly blown away. Ordered a side of Bearnaise sauce to go with it, but ended up barely putting any on the steak since it was awesome enough on its own. We loved our server, and the rest of my family enjoyed their dinners as well. We... More

Forget Joe Biden......visit this place! Fantastic service! The prime t bone was cooked perfectly. Scallops with thick slices of bacon was delicious. The tomatoes, onions and blue cheese with Luger sauces was great. Right near University of Scranton. Worth the trip!

Looking for a dinner spot in downtown Scranton within walking distance of the hotel. Chose this as much due to proximity as food type. Seated promptly. On a hot summer night, the air conditioning felt good. Clearly this restaurant is known for their steaks, but after asking if the veal was good, I chose veal medallions with blue cheese on... More

Took the family to owners new location and very disappointed across the board. Actually wife and I felt ill after leaving. We traveled more than an hour to experience what we knew at former restaurant in Clark Summit and will never be back again.

Truly the place to go for steaks. And dessert was top as well. Scallops were delish, though could have been crisper on top layer and not buried into a garlic mash. Appetizers yummy, crab cakes were 'insane' to quote my man. Waitstaff attentive and friendly. Sat outside for sunset, umbrellas could be adjusted for comfort from rays. Drink menu was... More
