Bad food, poor selection. Only good thing is view. If you want a good meal go someplace else to eat.

We stop here often in our way to our cabin. I generally have the pork barbecue with a wheat beer! The chicken corn soup is fabulous... the brisket chili is only ok.... little meat. Fabulous building... great plantings outside.... wonderful view. Never disappoints!

We often admired Skeeter's in Shamokin Damn and finally we got to stop! We have to "hold off" on eating for over 200 miles to eat here, and we did it. We ate inside because it was a super hot summer day. Our table overlooked...More
