We've been to Bandana's quite a few times and never been disappointed. Consistent quality and good service. One of my favorites is the Pizza for One...another is their Junior Ceasar salad. The prices are reasonable too.

There are specials for each day and if you want them you have to get there becuase everyone knows their favorites and goes for them. You... More

Bandana's is one place that you know your food has been prepared by a real cook. Their roasted meats are the best in western New York. It's a great place to go for an old fashioned mid day Sunday dinner with mashed potatoes and a good choice of veggies. They also have Mexican food, but what we really like is... More

My wife and daughter and I had an opportunity to have dinner Friday night in January at bandanas bar and Grill. Great family atmosphere, actually really good food for a place right around the corner. Moderately priced, and a very casual atmosphere. The wait staff were extremely friendly and you had the feeling that they treated you like you have... More

We have eaten here numerous time and have enjoyed it. Tonight though, I had a mushroom risotto that was delicious! This needs to be on the menu! We even had a glass of complimentary champagne to help ring in the new year.

The fish fry at Bandanas is well worth a drive to Youngstown! We try to go to Bandanas a few times a month. The potato skins are a definite every time we go. The service is super friendly and the food is always awesome!

This little dive bar has the best food in the area. We stopped here on the way to see Old Fort Niagara and are so happy we did. Don't let the exterior deter you, food was made fresh and drinks were cold. I had a hamburger with their hand cut homemade potato chips and my husband ordered the Philly cheese... More

I love Bandanas!!! This is mine and my families favorite place to eat. My son hurries home from school on Fridays to get a fish fry. I have never had a bad experience. The potato skins are unique and delicious. I like to try the daily specials Rob and his kitchen staff are very creative and make awesome food. My... More
