Went to the Paddock last night and had a reasonably priced meal with fast service. The Paddock is more of a Sports Bar so expect it to be noisy.

The new owners spent a lot of money on the interior and exterior but forgot to update the 1957 bathroom. I've been frequenting this place since 1958 and while the pizza is the same and delicious the rest of the menu needs updating. If you like numerous selections of draft beer this is your place. If you want good food... More

Place isn't clean. Server isn't from this earth. She had no idea of what was on the menu....but still very nice. My wife had a very dry burger with imaginary cheese. I had shrimp ...out of the freezer. Very disappointed...

The old, worn Paddock has been re-born thanks to the Hops family. The pizza is still great, maybe not quite the same as the "old days," but good. However, what a difference in the restaurant. There are numerous TV's, excellent bartenders, and a terrific crowd. The owners keep adding new items to the menu which also helps. All in all,... More

I recently had dinner and drinks with a friend from out of town who was looking for local "pub style" food. I suggested the Paddock and we were not disappointed! We started at the bar, and enjoyed the wonderful draft beer selection, then moved to the dining room where our service was great! Best pizza and cheesesteaks in the valley!!... More

After going to the Paddock for many years, last night was our last time. New management has ruined this place. The service has been slow and we had a few issues with the food in the recent past (i.e. under cooked French fries) but we continued to go because it was mostly nothing major. Last night my wife ordered soup... More

Food was terrible. Serve was very slow and server kept disappearing. They said that place had been newly updated, but the leather looking seats all had tears and rips. This is more of a man's drinking TV sports place. We only ordered food, and it was not worth our money or time. Everyone is our group will not be going... More

The waitresses seem to be very competent. However, one waiter (young cocky kid) last night took 45 minutes to give me my cheesesteak only to receive it without cheese and no toppings. He gave me no apology and was incensed that I complained that my party was finished eating before I had even started to eat. I asked to speak... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant today. We were not impressed with the food at all. I had Chicken Francese. The sauce was disgusting. The plate had to have close to a quarter inch of melted butter on it. The noodles were just swimming in butter. You couldn't taste any lemon which is supposed to be in the sauce.... More
