Another local place in Punxsy that was similar to a diner. I was here for lunch and they had a $5.99 buffet. I usually stay away from buffet's but this was very good. Not a huge selection but the homemade chicken salad is worth a return visit. They had a salad bar and pizza too. I was not disappointed. The... More

Clean and ok. Nothing special here. Although, with limited selection in Punxsutawney it is ok. I had a BLT.

I wanted to wash up before eating here but there was no soap in the men's room. We left and went somewhere else that did. I wouldn't eat where they don't have soap.

Simple, focused buffet where the pizza is good and the wings and sauces just won't disappoint. Come prepared for many return trips to the buffet.

Gimmicks is a small town restaurant that has been around a while. They are continually improving the atmosphere. The food has always been good. The Stromboli is the best!

Gimmick's ranks high as one of those small town restaurants you might eat in every day if you lived in Punxsutawney, Pa. . The food is very good, the service excellent, and prices are reasonable . If you don't live there and you're passing through on State Route 119 or perhaps there for the February 2nd celebration of Groundhog Day... More

Stopped after a long camping weekend in the beautiful Pa north. This was our second visit and even though our waitress was cheerful and helpful it did nothing for the quality of the food. I tried a club sandwich...boring - presentation was just short of ordinary. Yes - I know we were not in a major city but local restaurants... More

We had a couple meals at Gimmick's - both a breakfast and a lunch. Atmosphere is mostly locals so you run into everyone you know. Food is plentiful but in my opinion was slightly over the top in oil and/or herbs. They do not have butter - just plastic margarine. They claim they have corned beef hash on the breakfast... More

Perfect place for lunch! Loved the hot roast beef sandwich. The gravy was perfect! We started with the yummy broccoli cheese balls. We were ready to explore Punxsy with a warm happy tummy!
