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 back if in Scranton again.

Thank Stephi1975

If you are going to this place you have to get the steak. The best cut meats in Scranton. Service is normally fantastic too. Prices are high, especially for drinks. Salads are good too for an appetizer (or meal if you must). Parking is on the street so that can be a challenge as are most places downtown...

Went for a business dinner. Waitress was new and did her job the best she could with the resources given to her. Food from the kitchen was slow.

The terrible part came when we ordered cappuccinos for desert. The first ones brought out were basically coffee, if you can even call it that, with some foamed milk spooned on top. The waitress said she would have someone else make them because she really ddi not know how. Second ones come out, made with the same "coffee" but as a latte. Now in this day with Starbucks aplenty pretty much everyone knows the difference between a latte and a cappuccino, NOT Carl Von Luger's, when the second ones came out the waitress who brought them was told that they were not made correctly again, with that she slammed them down on the table gave me a dirty look and stormed off. Amazingly the owner was eating in the same room, and never even so much as came over to say anything until I said something outlaid about it. He then proceeded to try and tell myself and my partner (both who have extensive experience in the restaurant industry, including family owning restaurants and bars) that he felt the second waitress' conduct did not warrant any action.

Does not live up to the von Luger family name at all. Save your money and take a trip to Brooklyn and have the real thing.

N.B. The waitress told us that the owner is not really a von Luger and the name of the restaurant is changing soon..

My wife and I have been going to Carl Von Lugar's for years always had a good meal. I highly recommend trying this place. It is much better than Ruth Chris.
