Don't knock it untill you try it , I'm not rich but the food is good , I don"t know about the drink"s because I don't drink , the Dome and Table F.P. are all around the same prices , it is something different , how about the place over what use to be the Valley Inn , anyone know how that is.

I know how to cook but if you are getting chicken wings for $10.00 I would like to know where , the way the prices of chicken have gone up I don't think you shop around or look at the adds , everything has gone up but everyones pay , I still think the food is good , yes prices are going to be what they are , you can't go to McDonald's and eat cheap either , local business not far to drive ,I'll stick around here , at least it is not processed food like some other places.

We have ate their half a dozen times. The food was good the first two times. But the last three times they were out of what we ordered. And the waitress was slow. The last time the party sitting behind us waited over an hour and there food was cold. They sent it back after waiting for an hour to get it they just decided to leave. I was a little disappointed in the owner, she went over to try and offer drinks or desert but the folks just wanted to leave. Then she raised her voice as if she was yelling at them for not taking her up on the offer. Not impressed. After seeing that I think its safe to say those folks will not be back. Not sure if we will either.

I agree with the slow service. My advise is to verify that what you order is actually available. My wife tried to order twice and both times they were out of what she wanted. But the food took forever to get and they were not that busy. There were only five other people there besides us. And the flies in the dining room were awful the doors were left wide open. Waitress was from the other pub and in our opinion was not very good at all. Never came and refilled our drinks once. Will not likely go back.

Good place to go drink. Service was a bit slow. Prices a bit on the high side, but if it keeps the riff raff out and if the service was faster it would be worth it to me.

I have also been in a few times. It's a bit pricey. I find the food seems better on a weekend night. Is there more than one cook? I disagree about the girl from the other pub. I believe your talking about Jessica. I think she's the best waitress there. Very on point. She has served me and I was also waited on by another girl with long dark hair. When I go again I hope that Jessica will be my waitress again. Give the Erie some time they are new to this. Cheers and good luck.

Well here's my take. The place is really nice and could be
A goldmine. Here's the problems that I see.

-come on folks, get some bar stools, there's no excuse
For this. Piss poor.
-drop the food prices. Way too high
-you're not a diner, bring in a chef. You actually
Have one if you'd let hin strut his stuff

-dump the blonde bartender with the high pitched voice and looks like she's sucking on a lemon.

-expand the menu a bit. Need more alternatives. Did I say lower the prices?

Good luck.

Very well put. The blonde behind the bar is slow as hell. I have been dinning in this area for years. The guy you have there cooking is great let him do his thing. But the blonde waitress behind the bar she knows her stuff and how to talk to the costumers. The owner is a nice guy but he shouldn't be behind the bar all day everyday. And lower the prices this is fort plain not the city. If your not going to lower the prices at least have the things people want to eat.

Who's the guy that works in the kitchen? He is hot!!! I love dark meat. I would eat him up! Yummy!!! Is he single? Please say he is. Boy what I would do to him. I want to come down again for drinks but I don't like when the owner is behind the bar she makes really weak ass drinks. The sexy man in the kitchen can take care of me.

Nope...food prices way too high for this area. Service was not only slow but food came out cold and tasted nasty. fear of "retaliation" if we complained...you know the spit on the food etc...so we just ate a bit, made excuses and took it home. Heated it up at home and it was just "ok". We won't go back.

Well the beer was cold. Unfortunately so was our food. After a long wait. I guess we are done with this place. After reading the reviews I guess we were not the only ones. They better get a handle on the cold food and slow service or its just going to be a toxic recipe for disaster.

Agreed, a restaurant needs to be consistant in a good way in order to survive. So far its not. I hope they work out the kinks. Good luck!

My husband and I went tonight with another couple. It was a wait but we expected that. The dinning room was full. The food was great. The waitress with the dark hair was horrible. The worst we have ever had EVER. Come to find out she is the owners daughter.
