We stopped for lunch and both had taco salads. I'd give it a B. Service was speedy and friendly. We ate in the dining room behind the bar. Menu of sandwiches and sides, no dinners. Reasonable prices.

We stopped after 9PM on a Friday nite after a Winery visit and Concert in North East. The bar menu was available was adequate for our needs and the service was friendly and quick. The pizzadilla is a nice panini-style pepperoni, sausage ++, tortilla filled snack that is reasonably priced. The open room seating is a little noisy but a... More

In the area for our work, we stopped for a later dinner on our way back to hotel. Nothing fancy here, but we were cordially greeted and seated, waited on with warmth and efficiency. Portions were bigger than we expected. I had grilled veggie quesadillas with chicken and had enough for the next day. My husband's French dip sandwich was... More

The Ruffed Grouse is a bar with phenominal burgers! They are huge (at least 1/3 lb) and excellent. Yet they serve more than burgers. They also serve an excellent shrimp dinner. Their beer list is extensive and sure to please!

My family of four (wife and 2 kids (8 and 2)) stopped into the Ruffed Grouse while visiting family in North East. My wife and I each had a burger and they were cooked well, seasoned well, and tasted great. My kids split a fried shrimp plate and gobbled up all of it. They had a decent beer list and... More

Thanks Tim for the input. Your post prompted us to try to improve our dining room. I guess when you spend as many hours in your establishment as we do you can lose sight (or smell) of the situation. After trying to figure out the problem we steam cleaned the carpets to freshen things up, and I think that's what... More

The only place in the area that I know of that serves Cincinnati Chili. Its very authentic. The restaurant's prices are reasonable. The beer selection is great. Very clean restaurant & bar with good service.

Always a must stop when I'm in the area. A plethora of beer to choose from from a small bar, great burgers and excellent wings. Clean place and spacious bar area.
