We have been wanting to try The Powerhouse Eatery for a couple years. We wish we had tried it sooner! We were definitely missing out on a great place!!!! Can’t recommend enough.

Food was very good as usual. Lots of choices, and we all had something different: fish, pork, chicken, pasta, lamb appetizer special. All were nicely presented and very tasty.

However the service was verrry slow. It's possible that they are experiencing staffing issues, but this was unusually slow. 25 minutes to get 2 simple mixed drinks, 2 draft beers, and a bottle of wine. We experienced the same throughout the meal...appetizers, salads and entrees were really slow coming out of the kitchen.

We always like, and will return to the Powerhouse as the food is high quality and consistently good. Hoping that it was just a fluke on a semi-busy Saturday night.

We went there for Sunday Brunch. The menu has a great selection. I had the Norwegian Eggs Benedict and my wife had an omelet. Both were outstanding. Service was great.

We ate at Powerhouse as a group of four. Our server was Pat and he is awesome. We started with drinks and some shared appetizers. Each plate was hot and delicious. Our entrees were exactly as advertised. Great quality, great portions. Loved the bread and orange butter. Definitely will return.

We were seated near the bar. Apps came out fast. We almost got the wrong tables food delivered to us. We then waited for over an hour for a filet and shrimp . The waitress came over to tell us there was a large party in the back which throws the kitchen off (not our problem). As soon as she left, a table that was seated after us was brought out a steak which lit the fuse! Perhaps if the waitress wasn’t standing talking to her friend at the bar for 20 minutes, she would have been more attentive to our food. Speaking g of poor, pot stickers were out of a bag, shrimp francaise had zero taste and there were only 4. Best part of meal was baked potato and bread. I have driven by this place for decades and this was my first, and last, stop!!

Although the atmosphere and host / hostess staff was great the appearance the feel of the restaurant was nice when we ordered our appetizer the appetizer of pig wings were really delicious but when you got to the middle it was cold like it was pre-cooked and then just heated up to serve and then my wife got chicken franchise for her dinner and I got the 8 oz filet mignon The 8 oz filet mignon was cooked perfectly and seasoned perfectly The mashed potatoes and vegetables on both my wife and i's plates were also cold and bland our bill was $120 which I don't mind spending but I was really hoping the food would have blown me away unfortunately it fell short in that category probably will not return unfortunately was really looking forward to the powerhouse eatery as it was my wife and i's first time there

It was our first time at the Powerhouse Eatery and after reading the reviews we were excited to have a special dinner there however our experience was disappointing. WE drove 30 minutes hoping for a wonderful experience. My husband and I expected a nice quiet atmosphere for a romantic dinner. (as a few reviews showed) We were seated in the back room, the atmosphere back there was extremely loud. While sitting at our table we were only about 3-4 feet away from others dining just a few steps below us so we weren't comfortable staying there to have dinner but against our better judgement we stayed. Dinner was ok but the food didn't have any "WOW" factor except for the peanut butter pie. That was amazing! Sorry to say we both agree we won't be going back there again any time soon.

Our server, Pamela, was solicitous and courteous, but not hovering. The portions were more than adequate, and the food was well prepared. The only complaint is that my dining partner is unfamiliar with the term 'home fries' and was disappointed thinking it meant fresh cut fries. Maybe a description on the menu for people traveling through and not used to PA food terms?
