Lucky for you there is a fantastic little hometown healthy place to eat tucked in the woods in Confluence, Pa. There's even a lovely lab who greets you as you walk up the steps to the great outdoor deck seating area (if you choose to enjoy the beautiful scenery while you dine). Inside, the hosts are friendly and the food... More

Casual place for lunch or dinner. We ate here the first night because it was the only place open in Confluence in early April. Came back again for dinner the next night. Good food - burgers, pizzas etc. Excellent service.

Stopped in for a quick evening dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Lucky Dog enjoys a great reputation among the locals and came highly recommended. The atmosphere was fun, but relaxed, and the staff was friendly and professional. I tried the salsa/chips and one of their burritos. Both were very good and the portions were more than enough to fill you... More

Spent the night at Paddler's Lane Bed and Breakfast. The host there had recommended this restaurant and we were glad he did. It was a little bit hard to find (the sign was not clear) but worth the hunt. Very festive and friendly inside. The food was fresh and delicious. Very large portions....you could definitely share..very charming outside deck area.

Ate here for the third time and have been impressed each of my visits. The beer selection includes some good craft beers in addition to the usual suspects. The food is really good ~ lots of locally purchased ingredients and interesting menu options. I had a black bean burger and pumpkin soup; both were really good. Can't wait to go... More

Showed up later in the evening. Service was friendly and quick. Food was delicious!!! Evening out on the deck was wonderful. Reason for poor review: friend went in to pay and said he heard screaming in the back, vulgar language being used. Servers tried to mask the situation. Still didn't hide the overall uncomfortable feeling of the screamer not wanting... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We sincerely want to apologize for making your evening uncomfortable. After closing time, the kitchen began clean up. During clean up one of employees slipped and hurt themselves very badly which resulted in painful screaming you heard. Our employee was not aware that there were customers still dining outside. In...

First of all the service was so friendly. We road in on our bikes so there is easy access from the bike trail and a bike rack. My husband ordered a blue cheese burger and I ordered a bacon and cheddar. Both were outstanding! We sat outside on the patio and had a nice break before we went back to... More

We ate here while traveling the Laurel Highlands and visiting the Frank Lloyd Wright properties in the area. We had been through this town a few years prior and had eaten here before. The food is very good, not your standard small town tavern or home cooking place. We shared some appetizers and a couple plates, all were well above... More
