My brother and his family took me to McGarrey's Oakwood Cafe while I was visiting them recently. I had heard about this place and how it was good if you like the home cooked feel when you go out to eat, so it was alluring...More

My jumbo perch sandwich was out-of-this world with flavor and generous size. I ate half of it with a fork and washed it down with a Yuengling beer. Its reputation precedes it: the infamous Reuben that features lean meat, and required two hands to hold...More
