Eders Ice Cream

Reviewed By Andy1rn - Yankee Hill, Ca - near Chico

This is wonderful ice cream, made (mostly) on site and often that morning!. The quality is such that I don't even want to buy ice cream in the grocery store now. Prices are comparable to Baskin Robbins for cones (though the scoops are larger at Eders), and prices are much better for pre-packed ice cream. For example, a half gallon (a WHOLE half gallon) is just $5. If its on the menu, try the Alabaster Coffee ice cream.

Oh, and if you have a 14 hour drive ahead of you, don't try keeping Eder's ice cream in your ice-cooler. It's just sad. Even the melted ice cream was excellent though.

Santino's Italian Cuisine

Reviewed By cadan - Cohocton, New York

We were looking for a reasonable late lunch time with grandchildren and were very surprised at how good this is. We ordered the eggplant and spaghetti special, chicken wing wrap, shrimp basket and the Italian sub. With three drinks our bill was less than $36.00 and we had to ask for a box for our leftovers. Everything was very good and we will make sure we go there again when we are traveling through.

Pier 87 Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Deb C - Roatan, Honduras

I grew up at this place, spent my teen years here swimming when it was Shore Acres. It is now owned and run by a young man and his business partner. It was my first time there since it's been opened and it was for a class reunion. The place was packed, inside and out, and it's always like that. Packed restaurants mean one thing, good food and service. Our reunion food was many levels above typical reunion food, it was excellent. The setting under a tent along the Loyalsock creek is fantastic. They had outdoor fire pits with chairs and tables scattered about. The area was festooned with hanging lights. I was very impressed by the place and happy that our class chose it for the reunion.

Peter Herdic House Restaurant

Peter Herdic House is an elegant gourmet restaurant in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion situated on Williamsport, Pennsylvania's Millionaires Row. This fine dining restaurant specializes in serving sustainable, locally-grown produce and meats, in the picturesque environs of a beautifully restored Victorian mansion. Built in 1854 as a residence for Peter Herdic, a Williamsport lumber baron, the house was restored in the early 1980's. Sisters Marcia and Gloria Miele opened the restaurant doors in 1984. From the beginning, they combined a respect and love for Williamsport's historic heritage with a passion for fine food. Now in their 27th year in business, "the Miele girls" (as they're known locally) have built a strong family connection to the restaurant, incorporating their mother Daisy, as the pastry chef, and Gloria's daughter Liz, as the executive chef, into the business. The Miele family feels lucky to be able to combine their hospitality with historic preservation. The Herdic House is among the finest examples of Italian Villa architecture in the state, and guests are welcome to tour the restaurant. Its distinctive features include ornate plaster moldings and arches, and a mahogany stairway that curves three floors to a cupola. The ornate first floor moldings and the acanthus-leafed fluted columns on the porches are original to the building, and the intriguing three-story chandelier has captivated many visitors. The bar, in the rear of the building, was created from the witness stand of the demolished county courthouse, and the fan was taken from the same building. The property includes a beautiful wisteria-covered patio lit by Venetian lanterns for outdoor dining and cocktails, a lounge with a fireplace, and an intimate bar with an excellent selection of wines and spirits. The Mieles have a love of fine wine, and have traveled to Burgundy, Tuscany, and California tasting wines. The 75-bottle wine list offers a wide range of American wines, as well as wines from France and Italy. After appreciating the beautiful surroundings, diners can also tour Pennsylvania gastronomy. The restaurant kitchen strives to use the best and freshest ingredients available-which usually means buying from the central Pennsylvania community. Liz and the kitchen staff use sustainable produce and meats whenever possible. They start with the freshest, locally grown ingredients and present each item artfully. To stay in keeping with the seasons, the menu changes monthly, but one classic appetizers which can always be found on the menu is shad, locally smoked by Helmrich's Seafood and served with capers, onions and a horseradish dill sauce. Shad once ran in the Susquehanna River and was featured at the original Herdic House, Peter Herdic's restaurant at the Park Hotel, in the 1870s. In the pastry kitchen, Daisy makes perfect creme brulee and chocolate mousse cake, as well as her signature apple cinnamon bread pudding. The restaurant also offers housemade ice creams and rotating dessert features. And Daisy and Liz are happy to collaborate on specialty cakes for larger parties or special occasions.

The restaurant is in a graceful Victorian house built in the mid-1800’s, with elegant rooms and table settings (actually setting the place rather than rolling the silver up in the napkin- yeah!). It has more seating capacity than you would think, yet the noise level was just right (not too loud for conversation nor so quiet that it was awkward). The menu was varied and interesting. The bread basket was delicious. The wine choices were limited, and by the glass only, but we found our choice to be very good. We loved the smoked shad appetizer and scallops wrapped in bacon. My beet salad and crab cake entrée were both delicious. My mousse cake may be the best chocolate cake I ever had. The homemade vanilla ice cream I asked for on the plate was also delicious. My husband also enjoyed his onion soup, pork chop special and especially the crème brûlée. The staff members seemed to know many of the patrons, but were also sincerely friendly to us as out-of-towners. The timing of the service was good, but I would have preferred if the server didn’t seem so rushed. She seemed to walk by the table while talking or dropping off dishes rather than stopping at the table and engaging with us. I find a more relaxed pace to be more conducive to a fine dining experience. We would definitely return on another trip.

We ate at Cloud 9 and it was bad. The salads are served on terrible greens resembling weeds. They also have a menu item named after the fantastic 33 East penne lobster. However, Kevin Nash would be ashamed of what they have done to it....MoreWe're sorry that your dining experience wasn't the level it usually is at Cloud 9. Please don't hesitate to bring that to the attention of a staff member or manager so we can correct it. We hope you'll give us another try. Take care!

Moon & Raven Public House

Reviewed By CityGirl53156 - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

I've been to Williamsport many many times over the past 25 years and have never been impressed with the restaurant scene.... until now. Moon & Raven had great service, an excellent menu, a variety of libations and the atmosphere was upbeat. I had the 'Wee' portion of Guinness Stew for lunch and it was just enough. I opted for the baguette and the butter was amazing...fresh creamy butter with rosemary and a hint of sugar. I will definitely be back the next time I am in town. I just hope the old-school locals appreciate this kind of restaurant.

Grace Buffet & Grill

Reviewed By BemusedBee - Berkeley, California

This place offers mounds of food, Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian and American in a cheap buffet. occasionally the portions are good, most are too greasy, overcooked and very salty. If you are a regular and like to eat tons of food or aren't picky you will be very happy here. Regulars know what's best on the buffet, for the rest it is hit or miss.
