Trattoria Fratelli

We are a local establishment in an unassuming part of town that serves up fresh, high end entrees, crafted wood-oven pizzas, home made breads and desserts with attentive service in a casual atmosphere. "A Fresh Taste of the Old World" is how we describe our style. Our menu changes with the seasons. We serve traditional Italian entrees like tagliatelle, butternut squash ravioli (in the Fall) and (lasagne on Thursdays), but we also have offerings from land and sea accompanied by produce sourced locally. We have a full bar and an extensive Italian wine list. Our hours are Tues-Sat 4pm-10pm.

This is a definite must do as it has some wonderful Italian dishes that are made with the finest touches. The regular menu is sufficient but their specials are out of this world. Nice location on the corner but keep in mind they don't take reservations - only for specific group numbers and days of week. It's definitely worth the wait - which I didn't have to wait at all. The wood fired pizzas are yummy. Neat appetizers and friendly staff.

Blue Bird Inn

Reviewed By Susiewoozie12 - Reston, Virginia

Came with a reservation- we arrived early but were seated after our reservation time. The hostess station was in disarray- there were 4-5 people trying to manage reservations and seat people- and there were lots of people waiting. Totally mismanaged and hostesses were rude.
Service was not good- we sat another 15 minutes before anyone came to take a drink order. It took another 15 minutes for drinks- our appetizer came and there was nothing to drink. Nachos were just OK- tasted like cheez wiz and chopped tomatoes out of a can- very small amount of chili and virtually no lettuce. Will not get these ever again.
Dinner was varied- best was a quesadilla and burger; the absolute worst was Guinness pie- the meat was like rubber tires- could not cut it at all. This was something we would have sent back if not with friends.
I think the servers are overwhelmed- bussing tables and getting drinks at a busy bar. They need a better system- this is not working and it has been like this the past few times I have come for dinner. It is a circus. Not worth the long waits.

You will no find a bigger or better menu in town! We have been here numerous times for special meals and have never once been disappointed. Biggest problem is trying to figure out what to actually order! Our favorite is actually one of the appetizers- the lobster bruschetta is out of this world. You will love it!

Hidden Still Spirits

Reviewed By RMB634 - State College, Pennsylvania

They make all their own spirits and you can order a sampler if you want but their cocktails, made with all their own liquor, are excellent and there are even some interesting concoctions.
I sampled their new bourbon which is very smooth. The big surprise was the decent food and appetizers to go with the drinks. My wife had an excellent cosmopolitan while I had a unique “Dutch Highball” and another member of our party had the Pumpkin Martini. We had live music on this Friday evening.
The atmosphere was a very nice old factory type feel. We will probably visit again when in the area.

Snitz Creek Brewery

Reviewed By hart277 - Chicago, Illinois

Came in Friday night, got a nice table, server came over pretty quickly got our drink orders and took the kids food orders and when she brought out the beer flight, she was very knowledgeable of all the beers and the proper way to drink them and I will tell you the beers were amazing and I’m not a huge craft beer fan. They really take local ingredients and make some fun and yummy flavored beers. I’m huge fan of all their stouts and porters.
We had dinner and the burger was really good and the pretzel app was good. The mustard and cheese dipping sauce is out of this world.
I wish we could have enjoyed the outdoor patio, but will have to wait till the summer!

Gabby's Italian Bistro

Reviewed By Adam L - Cary, North Carolina

We ordered a big takeout order one frosty Pennsylvania night. Between the eight of us, we sampled almost everything on the menu, from pizza to individual entrees.

Large calzones are enormous; you could eat it for at least two, maybe three meals. They make their own bread and everything feels like it's made from a family recipe. The service wasn't the friendliest, but it did feel authentic.

We stopped in at Mannino's Pizza and ordered a 16" Stromboli with a large house salad. The Stromboli had ham, salami, red peppers, cheese, and sauce. It was delicious!! The staff was friendly and very efficient. They explained the menu and answered all of our questions. The phone kept ringing off the hook and we can understand why.
