Dickson City is a borough in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, 4 miles (6 km) north of Scranton. Coal mining had been an important industry in the past. Coal miners are much scarcer in Pennsylvania today than they had been, so populations have fallen in many places such as Dickson City; The population was 6,070 at the 2010 census.

Starbucks

Reviewed By timeliebe - Syracuse, NY

Every time we travel from Central NY to NYC and back, we hit this Starbucks - the baristas are polite and capable, the coffee is, well, Starbucks (which is not great but not awful either, IMO - and the coffee drinks are usually good), and it's a comfortable place to take ten and stretch your legs or check e-mail while traveling.

We arrived at the end of a rush. There were multiple empty tables however we were seated beside the bathroom. We had traveled for over 10 hours so asked if we could sit up near the bar away from the bathroom. This request seemed to put them off however they did move us.
This Texas Roadhouse is dirtier than any we've seen. We found cutlery on the ground passing towards the bar area and our wine glass had a dishwasher remains. Could be the result of a busy night.
Service:
We had to ask for buns 3 times and only received them at the end of our meal. We had to ask for the same glass of wine twice. We couldn't help but feel that our request to move set the poor service.
We still love Texas Roadhouses but we will not return here.

Decided to try this little place. What a surprise. Not only was it a great experience but the food was wonderful. They made room for us because all the tables were reserved. Owners and staff were extremely helpful and gracious. Great Italian food. Found a new place when we feel like eating Italian

Loading Dock Bar & Grill

Reviewed By HQs_mom

My husband and I stopped here for my birthday lunch. We had never heard of the restaurant but saw positive reviews. What a mistake.
Cheap, fried, bar food... No entrees available until after 4 pm.
So we ordered the shrimp & crab dip which was literally, white queso/cheddar Velveeta melted with a little Old Bay seasoning with the most laughably small shrimp scattered in it. It was truly nauseating. Someone need to Google a recipe for crab dip. Cream cheese, a little mayo, it's not complicated and this place has serious nerve passing off that garbage as acceptable.
The fried shrimp tasted like old cooking oil.
The place was loud, dark, and full of people who obviously don't know what good food is.
On the up side, the waitress was polite.
Other than that, disgusting.
My husband was apologizing to me about how awful it was - though it was not his fault.
We will never make that mistake again. Gross.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Reviewed By danfriedmanmd - Miller Place, New York

If you're in the mood for a freshly baked donut right out of the oven then look no further if you're around a Krispy Kreme .
Always ask for whatever is coming out from the conveyer belt and you will not be disappointed. Abigail was very nice in providing me with exceptional customer service. This location makes you feel like you have entered a donut factory as you can see them make the donuts through a glass viewing. My husband and I paused for a few minutes to enjoy the donuts being moved through their chambers and on to a roller where they begin to cool. All I wanted was anything warm. The first girl that attended to us told me I'm not allowed to have anything that's warm because everything is just as warm. So I then asked for two glazed donuts which were cold. I said I was sorry but the donuts handed to me were cold and to please give me the donuts that were being made which she then proceeded to say that she can't rolled her eyes when I asked for the warm donuts again and then said "can someone take care of this woman" at which point Abigail was within seconds time gave me two warm donuts. Wow, why can't every employee be as nice as Abigail. Then when I asked for Abigail name and followed it by stating I would like to give her a nice review on trip advisor the first girl started to hysterically laugh. In any event that will never stop me from eating a hot delicious donut from Krispy Kreme. There is. Itching better then their donuts with coffee.
This store is clean,modern and worth visiting if you're in the Scranton area .

Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza

Reviewed By Steve N - Vestal, New York

Come in with my wife just before Noon on a Saturday to beat the lunch crowds. We were quickly seated and given menus. Our server took our drink order and brought them over quickly. We ordered two 12" pizzas for lunch - a Patti's Eggplant pizza and a Philly Cheesesteak pizza. This gave each of us a chance to try both. The Philly was quite tasty with its blend of shaved steak, cheese, onions, roasted red peppers, & mushrooms - none of which appeared to be out of a can. The Eggplant was also very good and plentiful. Almost like having Eggplant Parmigiana on a thin crust.
We had 1/2 of each pizza left over to take home.
Never having had "coal fired" pizza before, we'd thought we'd give it a try.
Glad we did. We will stop by again next time we're in the area.
When we left, the place was quite busy, but there were still tables available.

Visited Posh on a recent trip to visit our kids at the U of S. From the moment we entered to when we left the entire meal experience was excellent. We were promptly seated and after a few minutes the owner came over to welcome us and introduce himself. We proceeded to order wine (very good selection at different prices) and a few shareable appetizers. The cauliflower bites and crudités were excellent. All of us also enjoyed the wonderful pretzel bread bites. Very tasty and unique. All 5 of us ordered different mains from osso bucco to filet mignon to lobster special to ahi tuna and chicken. Everything was served expeditiously but not rushed. Presentation was wonderful and more importantly very good. Also the portions are very large; definitely good leftovers. We also ordered a few desserts to share which were outstanding. Through out our dining experience another manager checked up on us to see how things were going. Overall this first visit to Posh was memorable, with great service, and more importantly excellent food. Do not hesitate to try Posh or go back for another worthy dining experience. I know we’ll be back.

Greek American Grill

Reviewed By Mutiny - Doylestown, Pennsylvania

The place is nothing to look at inside or out but the Greek food is authentic and tasty. Between the 3 of us had avglemono soup, saganaki and souvlaki platters followed by traditional Greek desserts. Service was excellent. Such a nice surprise to find this type of food in an area of bland, chain restaurants.
