I’ve had good food here, but the hours seem to be erratic, the service is average and the food is sometimes very good. The last time I stopped in they were closing nearly two hours early because business was so slow.

Carbondale has had a hard time supporting good restaurants. Newell house has withstood the economic hard times of the area and continued to offer good service and food. Not inexpensive, but not over priced for good food

We were greeted so very nicely as we walked in. The menu has so many appealing choices. I went with the classic rib eye which was done to my specifications.

Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. Good but not crazy expensive wine list. Nice evening out to dress for if you wish, but will not break the bank.
