If you are a franchise coffee lover...this is it for Lewistown as there are no STARBUCKS within 40 miles! So, be prepared to stand in line for your caffeine fix, because this DUNKIN has no drive-thru option. Did I mention...its always busy!

Angelo's

Reviewed By Dennis S - Lakeland, Florida

Seven of us went for dinner. Wife, sis-in-law, brother and sister-in-law, niece and her husband. Great salads. House dressing is bottled and sold locally. Yes, it's that good! Even the small portion of spaghetti is almost too much. Service was good but not exceptional. Prices are reasonable. Recommend.

East End Coffee Co. is a welcomed addition to the downtown Lewistown area, which has been void of a good coffee shop for years!

We stopped by opening weekend and were very pleased. The interior is nicely decorated and balances a modern vibe with a relaxed feel. The customer service was great and the owner spent time just chatting about coffee and other shops in PA, which we enjoyed.

Now to the coffee...East End is brewing Little Amps beans, from Harrisburg, and anyone familiar with Little Amps knows they do a quality roast. The owner said they spent quite a bit of time working with the Little Amps people prior to opening and it shows as East End is the real deal in a coffee shop! They offer the standard selection of specialty coffees, but also feature Pour overs, Chemex, and most importantly Nitro coffee!! Yum-nitro!! On this visit we sampled mochas and also the nitro, both of which we enjoyed! The nitro was deliciously creamy and I can't wait to try it again!

I highly recommend East End for quality coffee and welcoming service all in a nice environment!

Wingman Brew N Que

Reviewed By Greg S - McAlisterville, PA

Enjoyed a meal at Wingman last evening. The place is very nicely remodeled and very friendly welcome upon entering. The bartender was very upbeat and attentive to his customers needs. I had the wings and chili. The wings were very nice size and excellent tasting. The chili was good and served hot. My friend had the Tex-burger. He said it was absolutely great. Enjoyed the meal and will return. The server was a little slow and did not return as often as I like, but that will not keep me from trying it again. Great job! Nice to have another Lewistown option, and this is definitely a good one.

Reviewed By 57RRoberts - Lewes, Delaware

I'm fishing in the area of this restaurant and have eaten breakfast there two days in a row and then went back for dinner this evening. It's definitely a locals place and they were very busy. That being said, we didn't have to wait too long to get a seat or to get our food. Everything was tasty and a good value. I will eat here again the next time I'm in the area.

Big Daddy's Grill N Chill

Reviewed By cfpsu1 - Mifflintown, PA

We stopped in at BDGC for the first time last evening and were pleasantly surprised with the overall atmosphere and the food.
The dinning/bar area is very clean and well kept. Yes, some of the seats are a bit worn, but it it was nice to eat in a restaurant/bar that did NOT smell of old smoke! This impressed us. The service was prompt and everyone very friendly even though it was apparent we were not regulars.
Now to the food! I had the garden cheesesteak, which was incredible! One of the best cheese steaks I've had in a very long time. My wife had the cheeseberger sliders, which were very tastey and quite filling. The french fries are fresh cut and cooked perfectly!
We were very impressed and plan to try out their other offerings and their breakfast in the near future!
