Hollandaise How-To
Asparagus cloaked with velvety rich Hollandaise sauce. Easter is on the way and, like all things that need our time an attention, it will be here all too soon. One thing served at many Easter dinners is asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. I'd like to show you...

Anne's Meatballs
Anne's Meatballs When I first began making meatballs many years ago I made them as my mom did - meat, bread, milk, egg, salt and pepper and possibly nutmeg for flavoring. So-so at best but good in their own right. Several years ago I stumbled across a recip...

Yuengling Traditional Lager Bacon Barbecue Sauce
Yuengling is not a name that's new to Pennsylvanians, in fact, Yuengling has been brewing up fine lagers and ales here since 1829. The newest product to carry the Yuengling family name, and rightfully so, is Yuengling Traditional Lager Bacon Barbecue Sauce....

Don't bother wasting your time or precious money here. The owner is a liar. I bought a car from them and within 3 weeks had a $1000 repair which they informed me they would help with because the CARS Warranty didn't cover it - shocking, they did NOT help. He tells me 4 weeks later he was "Waiting for you to get back to me" when the last conversation I had with him was that he would call ME. Did he think I sat without a car for 4 weeks? Also - the registration was done incorrectly and I've been driving around with an expired plate because they did it wrong. When I called to tell them this he tried to argue the point and tell me my registration was good. Well, not according to the DMV who I had JUST called and they told me it was expired. What a bunch of crooks.

Three meals in three days and each was perfection. Their breakfast is one of the best I've ever had - the potatoes are to-die-for. The salmon meuniere served with homemade gnocchi and grilled asparagus was spot-on delicious. The fried calamari and smoked tomato aioli ... just wow. The waitstaff is friendly and very knowledgeable and the prices are reasonable for what you're getting. Stop in if you're in Lahaska or anywhere within 50 miles!

Perfection as usual. I've been ordering delivery for a year and took all 7 kids with me for dinner tonight. Most restaurants have servers that look annoyed or nervous when we all walk in, but not here. It was like we were family that stopped by all the time. Tables were pushed together without a thought and enough appetizer plates and cutlery brought immediately. Our server was adorable and friendly. She had all the drink and dinner orders right and chatted with us from time to time. She offered anything we needed and didn't miss a cue. The food is large portioned and absolutely delicious. We had chicken fingers and burgers for smaller ones, Rigatoni ala Vodka, Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Parmesan with pasta (this was enough for three people!), Shrimp Scampi with whole wheat penne, Spinach and Artichoke cakes (my all-time favorite here) and stromboli. Everything was excellent, flavorful, cooked perfectly and served hot. We all sampled one another's dishes and we even took some home! The price is right and the food is some of the best Italian I've had. We even had a little "extra" dish of zeppole fresh from the kitchen and steaming inside. Don't miss your chance to eat here! Even if you don't stop in, order pick-up or delivery, it's well worth it!

Old school awesome! Only "old school" because I remember JD from the 70s and 80s and the staff are exactly the same; friendly and accommodating. The food is good and plentiful and the restaurant is clean, well lit and comfortable. We ate here for 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch and thoroughly enjoyed each. Tenderloin still as yummy as ever! Had dinner tonight, got the buffet and Rheba Reasner's Swiss Steak recipe is just divine. The broasted chicken is as good as it ever was. Go and say hello to the GM, Tim Creasey and if you don't, he'll say hello to you!

This was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! YES, in a gas station! Perfect bread and cold cuts, crisp lettuce - it wasn't the usual plastic-wrapped soggy stuff you find in most stations. This was fresh made and the rest of the food looked awesome as well. I'll be back for more soon!

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and everything was perfection from the hostess to the servers to the meal itself. We started with the Saganaki as my boyfriend had never had it before. It was cooked perfectly though the portion size was smaller than I expected. The only reason there is that I'd had it at a Greek restaurant and they tend to super-size everything. We both had the 10 ounce filet and both were cooked precisely to our liking. Our sides were the Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus with Hollandaise. Both were perfectly seasoned and the portions were large. We were told they were meant to be shared, but between two we had a lot leftover. You could easily share sides between 4 people with normal appetites. The decor is beautiful and our experience was quiet because I made reservations for 6 PM rather than the standard 7 PM when it would get busy. I was right, it did start to get busier as 7 PM approached. The staff seemed a little restless so early, not to a distracting degree, but I did notice them milling about until customers began filling up the restaurant. The bar was full to overflowing and seemed the popular spot to be, however we retreated to our quiet table rather than join in. A very nice experience and something I will do again as I'd like to try the other entrees and possibly dessert if there's room!

Staying here right now. Rooms are large ... 2 rooms, one with a full bed, another with 2 twins, all separated by a small kitchen with a full refrigerator, 2 burners to cook on, a sink, toaster and coffee maker. Dishes and flatware there, too. Clean, comfortable and exactly what I'd expect here. No bugs! Room rates are reasonable and the staff is friendly.
