I wish I could go here, but it reeks of smoke and stale beer. It is a neat old building, fairly run down at this point. The cheese steaks are good. The staff have always been nice. Although the owner can be nasty if he doesn't like you. I have mostly gone to hear music, but they don't have bands... More

Haven't been here in a long time. I've never eaten here and it was my understanding that only serve food from the bar such as burgers and fries. The building itself is very cool... old and historic. It used to be a nice place to pop in for a drink, and maybe if you were so inclined, shoot a game... More

There was only 2 people in this bar on a Saturday night. The band started playing at about 9:30pm and by 10:15pm they were asked to stop. The bar only paid them partial money even though they all showed up and set up to play. Unless you're a local this place is not worth the trip at all.

My Strawn ancestors built the Raven's Nest building in the early 1700s. I went to Strawntown to see my "roots." Loved seeing the well-maintained stone houses in the tiny village of Strawntown. Having a delicious cheese steak sandwich at the tavern was a treat. Meeting owner Al and sharing our mutual knowledge of the Strawn family was great. Can't wait... More

I have lived very close to the Raven's nest since it opened. I do not drink and I do not eat out very often. When I have visited the Raven's Nest everything has been fine. I never hear anything negative around town. In 30 years I have not had one problem with anything, The owners have been great hard working... More

While on a road trip with my daughter-in-law, we found ourselves hungry and in need of a restaurant and we wondered in to the Raven's Nest. The young lady who was tending bar was also our restaurant. She was pleasant and helpful and we enjoyed our lunch. Prices were also very reasonable. Would like to go back some time to... More

Kind of scared by other reviews but nonetheless got up the courage and went to see the Don Hoffman Band this past Friday. Maybe I ended up in the wrong place but the music was outstanding, the beer excellent, the bathroom clean and the fellow patrons and staff nothing but nice and friendly. There was no cover and absolutely no... More

I visited this establishment on the recommendation of a person who was associated with it. This entity contended, "It's a great place to hang out and enjoy music - Even if you don't drink" (Which I DO NOT!). My first attendance was an open mic night to observe the atmosphere based on this affirmative invitation. The first outing yielded two... More
