Although very busy at the time of our visit on a Saturday night the service was outstanding. Caitlin is an awesome server with a great personality especially while under pressure. We were heading out after dinner so I went with the Chicken Caprese Sandwich and Greek side salad. Delicious. One of my friends had the surf and turf, steak and... More

Place does not take reservations so when we got there at 6:15, the place was crowded so we chose to eat at the bar instead of waiting because we had a concert at 8pm. (Just up the road is Buff State). My husband had a Caesar salad with chicken. His was excellent. I had the blackened grouper. I was a... More

We had an early dinner here after our Albright visit and it was great as always. Love the souvlaki and the casual atmosphere. Still miss the diner days, but Panos has grown into a comfortable place with great food and drink.

This was my first time here and I could not have been happier with my experience. We were seated right away on a busy Friday night by a very friendly staff. Our table was very quiet, perfectly lit, and clean. Despite the large crowd, we had no problem ordering our drinks, appetizers, and meal and receiving them in a timely... More

We arrived and the restaurant was not overly busy. We were seated promptly. After much negotiation, we decided to order the lobster mac and cheese and the chicken souvlaki. The mac and cheese was served in a dish large enough for about eight people! It was the largest serving, I had ever seen. My friend said it was very good... More

Love love love Panos! From their salmon and mashed potatoes to their enormous chicken parmesan dinner or the mere fact of their side salad with mixed greens and feta, I guess im a typical American! I have been here so many times and have never had a bad meal, or bad service. They are always busy but yet food is... More

This place has really gone down hill in recent years. My friend and I went here for lunch today, and we waited 25 minutes for a table when the restaurant was half empty. I asked the hostess twice not to just text us when the table was ready because I was feeding a baby - I was also standing right... More
