Having worked in the restaurant industry for the better part of my adult life, I don't usually write bad reviews about restaurants. However this is certainly an exception. My fiancé and I went here tonight, and we both left ill. I ordered the lobster fondue. I have a mild allergy to capsaicin, which is found in hot peppers. There was chipotle powder in the lobster fondue (which was not listed on the menu, and honestly- who puts chipotle in lobster fondue?), so I wasn't able to eat more than a small bite. Fortunately I tasted it immediately and was able to prevent myself from becoming sick. However the owner refused to take it off the bill so I was forced to pay for it, even though I could have been very ill from this. My fiancé liked his food okay, but about halfway home began to feel very ill. He was not so lucky- the food did make him sick. I have never worked in or even been to an establishment that does not work with customers on food issues, so I found this unusual and particularly rude. I will certainly be passing this mistreatment on to everyone because no one needs to suffer from that kind of experience. Saving grace- our waitress, Megan, was very gracious and apologetic even though there was nothing she could do to help.

Mr. Pastie pies are based on the traditional Welsh miners meals of fresh dough, cooked meats, fresh potatoes, onions and spices baked in turnover style. My family and I can attest that after years of enjoyment, Mr. Pastie still retains the consistent high quality and freshness that we have come to expect.

Mr. Pastie turnover pies can be purchased in your supermarket's frozen section if you live elsewhere, however if you are so very fortunate, stop in and purchase them fresh baked! You will not be disappointed. In fact, I guarantee that once smitten, you will return for more. While there you can watch them make the turnovers.

If you are traveling through the area, the shop is conveniently situated in the borough's central area just one block from the only streetlight in Pen Argyl.

A bonus is that in 2012, the company was purchased by J&F Products based in York, Pennsylvania. The new owner is a worthwhile charity and since purchasing, has invested a loving effort to maintain and improve Mr. Pastie product quality!

My bride and I went there for the first time last weekend. It was a mistake that we haven't gone sooner. The staff was very inviting and the the place has its own charm. From the appetizers to our entrees the portions were plentiful and tasty. We plan on going back soon. I would recommend if in the area to give it a try.

A very busy site with only one staff member handling both the busy drive in and the walk in customers. We were second in line and watched people leave since the service was so slow. Donuts were fresh and the coffee hot.

Featured specials of the day including 2 soups. Servers were prompt, attentive and friendly. Good selection (at least 7) of beers on tap. Bottles and local wine available.

We decided to supplement out Thanksgiving holiday this year with Emmy Lou's Homemade Ice Cream and add Scratch Pies. Word of mouth was that Emmy Lou had begun to offer scratch pies for holidays and special occasions to their already wonderful homemade ice cream assortment. We were believers in her ice cream, as we are frequent visitors year-round 'clean', 'nicely decorated' establishment. The staff and Emmy Lou always warmly greet you and make you feel welcome. The assortment of ice creams have the usual basics available along with an always changing variety of 'specialty' ice creams.

Breakfast sandwiches are made to order in the A.M. also.

Plenty of booth and tables await you.

As previously mentioned, Emmy Lou recently decided to add scratch pies for 'take out' for holidays and special occasions. We ordered Apple and Pumpkin and they were just marvelous; deep dish, crust firm yet flaky, full of tasty ingredients to the point that every bite left lasting memories!

Sal's Pizza

Reviewed By Momma252

Oh what wonderful food. Let's start with the homemade rolls they use for their sandwiches, unbelievable! They are dense, very tasteful long rolls. We love the steak sandwiches on them along with the Italian hoagies. Wow amazing!

The pizza is exceptional, $15 for a pie but they are larger than the normal pie and delicious! The soups are amazing, homemade and they change daily!! The corn chowder is awesome!

The front room is more for quick service, the waitresses are not that attentive, so try to grab a table in the back. It's very warm and inviting. The table service is much better.

They have take out 6 packs of beer and a huge take out menu. I love getting take out from here, usually when you order fries they are like mush when you get them home, they put them in a brown paper bag, they stay warm and crispy!

Take my word for it, try a sandwich with their homemade bread!! Amazing.They have a full Italian menu, you can't go wrong with the pasta. YUM. Give it a go. Not fancy, very casual, just what I like!

Little Creek Bar-B-Cue

We are primarily a take out restaurant, we DO NOT have public restrooms. We do have 2 tables inside and a picnic area outside. We specialize in true Southern Style BBBQ, sauce on the side. All of our sides, sauces, desserts, etc are made from scratch on the premisis. We do occasionally run out of items due to the amount of time it takes to prepare them...12hr min. for our Smoked Brisket for example. Please feel free to call ahead and ask if everything is available. Ya'all stop in a visit a spell!

I have been here many times for dinner and have tried quite a few items. The food is excellent! Everything from the award winning wings to even a delicious salmon dinner. The staff has always been pleasant and great even when it was a busy Friday night. Yes the drinks are expensive but this has helped keep a nice crowd.
