Pandowdy's is the only restaurant in town - literally! There is a bar and there are a couple of ice cream places, but, no other restaurant. The food was good! The best thing is that they are open in the evenings - all else shuts...More

It is sad when a place that makes your favorite dish (German Fare) closes. Saturday is the last day. The location is rumored to become a bar-b-que and catering company. Lets wait and see.

Bob, the owner is the best!! No where do you get better service. The jäger schnitzel will melt in your mouth. I've been eating here for 20+ years now and it just don't get any better? Steaks, seafood, authentic German dishes, anything you want.

Pandowdy's is one of the friendliest places to eat. There is a genuine appreciation of you not just as a customer but as a person and friend. Meals are very down to earth, good sized portions and very good service.

Stopped here while visiting Mount Airy. Staff was very nice and friendly. Our service was excellent, and we enjoyed our meal. We had the special, which was prime rib, and it was excellent. Would eat here again when in the area.

A very nice friendly experience. You are treated as family the entire time. We had prime rib, pork tenderloin and believe it or not one of the best tuna sandwiches I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The working owners are wonderful!

I thought it was pretty average. Not terrible, not great. My husband liked it better than I did. The vegetables were good, but the roast was rather tough. We will probably try it again.
