“A nice simple place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Red Lion is a nice down to earth place to eat. The food is common comfort food, Pennsylvania Dutch style. The main meals are your meatloaf and mashed potatoes, pork and sauerkraut, fresh and baked sausage, and lettuce and bacon dressing type dishes. The food is good and you get plenty of it. The atmosphere is a little gloomy, but it is probably the best place to eat near Pine Grove. They have wonderful cheese steak sandwiches with sauce and onions if you're not looking for a full meal.

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

This is popular with the locals. Lots of folks enjoying some fairly good food at reasonable prices. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Not a place to order a top-of-the-line steak, as the cook staff are really a hamburger and potatoes type of service (I know because I ordered the filet mignon - below average on quality).

“Very Nice Local Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

I have stopped giving 5 stars unless the place is exemplary.... Therefore, you may want to assume that 4 stars is very good in my opinion... This is good honest food, in a 3rd generation family restaurant. My daughter had a 6 oz filet special that was quite tasty, but at $18 I think a bit expensive for the location.... That being said, the quality of the food is very good, authentic, and made on premises...

“Maybe I'm too fussy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Passing through Pine Grove we were told that Red Lion was a good place to go for a meal. I've had very good food travelling throughout the US but I can't say this was an outstanding experience.
There is absolutely no excuse to serve canned green beans unless there has been an extended power failure. My roast beef in gravy was tender but tasteless and the baked potato had been in the oven way too long.
The cheesecake was good and filled the gap nicely.
This is clearly a family restaurant and seems popular with many locals, so if they're happy that's a good thing. I just expect a bit more than I received.
