Our "Places To Try" List (And Our Favorites Too!)

I asked, on facebook, awhile back about the best (preferably non chain) places to eat in our area.  Most of the responses are already on our favorites list, but we still have a list of places to try.  Several people have since asked me if I compiled a list from the answers I received, so this is my attempt to do so.  It's  work in progress...

*Our Favorites

A Nice Dinner Out - Old Forge, Milltown Deli, The Inn At Turkey Hill
Lunch - Mels Diner, Milltown Deli, D&C Coffee & Tea, Rooneys Pub

The Log Cabin Inn - sit down, family style, tavern type setting
Check out the steak special at the Log Cabin Inn on Saturday nights.  It's a tremendous amount of GOOD food!  The steaks are huge.  Order them more cooked than you would normally order, because they are THICK.  Medium  is medium rare here.

To Try:
The Pennsylvania Chop House

Mt Pleasant Mills

     Under new ownership - the bar is open, but the restaurant is not, yet.  It will be soon!

Crown Fried Chicken (pretty decent gyros here!)
*Stone House
Sinners & Saints Speakeasy (the food here was SOOOOO good!! Can't wait to go back!)

Moon & Raven Public House

soooooo many to try here!  But if you are in Williamsport, be sure to stop by Le Chocolate and pick up some salted caramels and peanut butter meltaways. Their chocolates are my favorites!!


  1. Griggs in Montoursville is the other operation of Dolly's Diner in case didn't know. I haven't been there but we have been to Dolly's and rather enjoyed it. If you like Italian I recommend Vincenzo's Italian Cruisine on just off I-180 on Maynard Street in Williamsport.
