Visited with 3 colleagues and the food was simple but very good. Excellent service. The decor is a bit like an 80’s conference room but the steak and mash etc was very good and priced quite well as it was a special. I would go...More

Classic steakhouse with very good selection of beef. Shared the 38-ounce Porterhouse, served Tuscan style. Very tasty. Wine selection was a little weak with limited choices and some outdated vintages. Cocktails were great, though. Go for the steak, not the wine!

We were pleasantly surprised when a customer recommended this restaurant in downtown Scranton. A member of the Luger family, renowned for great steakhouses, delivers nicely.
