Family-owned and operated since 1991, Apple Annie's has become an institution in the small town of Point Marion in southern Pennsylvania. The restaurant features home-cooked meals, and its extensive menu includes daily specials, sandwiches, specialty sandwiches, soups, salads, paninis, hamburgers, and steaks.
The casual atmosphere is reminiscent of a farmhouse kitchen, with hardwood floors and wooden tables and chairs. There is seating for up to 75 customers.
Favorite Dish: Despite its excellent home-cooked meals, the main attraction of Apple Annie's is its desserts, which are baked daily from scratch. A favorite with customers is the large selection of pies, which varies daily. Thirty to 35 pies are baked per day. Pies can be bought whole or by the slice. Other desserts include large sheet cakes, upside-down cakes, cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies, and cobblers.
This restaurant is in the old section of downtown. It looks nice on the inside and the owners/managers are very nice. The down side is that I ordered Chicken Curry and got Sweet and Sour Chicken. It was goos but was not what I ordered. I was too tired and in too much of a hurry to argue. Restaurant has Japanese food too. Good Indian Restaurant next door.
Favorite Dish: The Sweet and Sour Chicken was good.
This restaurant looks nice inside and out and the wait staff dresses well too. In addition to food they also have a variety of fine beers and wines. Unlike a lot of places with an eclectic atmosphere, well dressed staff, and great tasting food they also serve large enough portions. Cost was $22 as of August 2011. Hours are 11 AM to 10 PM Sunday through -Wednesday and 11 AM to 11 PM Thursday through Saturday.
Favorite Dish: My Veal Parmesan was well prepared, well presented and plentiful.
I have always liked the seafood at Red Lobster and this one was no different. Ambience is casual and nice. Staff was efficient. However, it definitely seems to me that the portions have gotten smaller.
Favorite Dish: The broiled seafood platter was very good, but I needed more food.
Cherry Tree Cafe is located in Uniontown and looks small but does have smoking and non-smoking sections separated by a wall. The menu has a variety of sandwiches, wraps, salads (antipasta,taco & steak) and dinners which include: spaghetti, shrimp and others with sides. You can also get breakfast any time of the day. Every day has different specials under $7 (drinks not included) with the exceptions of Sundays (no specials). My favorites are chicken & biscuits & macaroni.
Here is the list:
Mondays - meatloaf
Tuesdays - all you can eat spaghetti for $7, liver & onions
Wednesdays - lasanga (big portion)
Thursdays - Chicken and biscuits, the most popular day
Fridays - Macaroni and cheese, halushki, salmon cakes, can purchase any 2 combo
Saturdays - rigatoni
Half portions can be also be purchased for usually under $4-5. There are also desserts which consist of blackberry or chocolate cobbler, slices of cakes or pies. It varies sometimes. Service is fast, efficient and friendly!
The only con is the parking with not many spaces which can be a pain but that is usually on Thursdays.
Favorite Dish: Chicken & Biscuits- many chunks of chicken
Macaroni and cheese
Everyone raves about this little corner store in Uniontown called Phil's. It is a small grocery store that sells potato chips, sodas, candies and hoagies. There is such variety of hoagies one can get. Some include Italian, regular with ham, turkey and many others.
Only con is I have never gone into this place without a line in front of me, so it's obviously not "a best kept secret". There is always a line, usually to the door, but also 2 people making the hoagies so it usually moves rather quickly.
Favorite Dish: regular Phils hoagie with ham
This is a local restaurant, mostly in the Pittsburgh area, and secondarily in Pennsylvania, with a couple in Ohio and WV.
Eat'nPark was the first drive-in restaurant (with car hops) in Pittsburgh. It is now a Pittsburgh area institution. I think the name is funny - seems to me you should park before you eat. We first ate at an Eat'nPark when we went to Pittsburgh for our son's wedding.
Favorite Dish: The menu includes breakfast, various buffets including breakfast, Sunday brunch, and a soup and salad buffet for lunch, children's menu and a section called Seniors Especially™, which feature smaller portions at smaller prices. From their website: "Of course, there’s always the traditional favorites: the Superburger®, our juicy Ground Sirloin, Baked Scrod, and our homemade Strawberry Pie."
This is a great old building from around 1740, built on land once own by William Penn. The found is good country cookin', the portions are big and the cost is just right. The atmosphere is old country with wood beams, plank floors and floor to ceiling stone fire place. The service here is perfect, they don't bug you but always are right there before you need them, (it's spooky), very friendly too. Just off Route 1
Favorite Dish: Hours
West's was walking distance from my motel. It looked okay from the outside. Inside it was homey and comfortable. Service was okay. There is a small bar attached and a full lounge out back. The food was pretty tasty with good portions. Price was very good for what I got.
Favorite Dish: I had Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti, very good.
This restaurant, like the whole town of Drums, is family oriented. The menu is good basic country-style cooking. I had a nice veal cutlet with mashed potatoes and green beans. The decor is country/Americana. The waiter was nice and friendly. I would definitely return. Fairly cheap too. Popular with the locals.
Favorite Dish: Try the Veal Cutlet.
This is a small Italiaan/Pizza Restaurant run by Mexicans. The menu includes Italian dishes, Mexican dishes and Pizza. I had some pretty decent Lasagna. Not outstanding but an option.
Favorite Dish: The Lasagna was good. I would have ordered the Veal Parmesan; but I missed it on the menu.
OK, family restaurant may be a bit of a stretch... unless of course you haul your family around with you in your truck. Yup, this restaurant is located in a a TA truck stop. None the less, it is located on a desolate stretch of I-80 where there are very few other restaurant options available. We saw the sign and decided to stop, even after realizing it was just a truck stop restaurant.
I had a hot turkey sandwich with fries and gravy for $7.50. It was surprisingly tasty and full of good turkey breast... My mom had the chicken "pot pie" which was a bowl of chicken stew topped with a puff pastry--not quite like mom used to make, but it cost just $5.50. My dad had the "big reuben" for $8. Three coffees ran us $2 each.
I have been a fan of Quaker Steak and Lube since back in the days when there was just one location in Sharon, PA. Since then, our favorite place for wings has expanded around 40 locations, mostly in PA and Ohio, but also Florida, West Virginia, Virgina, Tennessee, Iowa, Georgia, South Carolina, New York, North Carolina, and Canada.
My last visit I ordered a single order (10) of wings and their sirloin steak sandwich with fries. The wings are pretty expensive at $8 for 10, but they are great, especially their cajun, golden garlic, and Louisiana Lickers. The steak sandwich had lots of tender cubed meat, though it was a little blandly flavored. The fries are good, especially when dipped in the extra wing sauce.

Favorite Dish: Wednesday night is Prime Rib night for anyone who enjoys slow roasted beef.
While Philadelphia has its cheese steak, Pittsburgh has Primanti Brother sandwiches. The sandwiches consist of a choice of meat, with cole slaw, french fries and tomato slices on Italian bread. This is NOT for someone on a diet! It tates especially good at 2am after a night of drinking! The sandwich is a meal in itself! Some choices include: cheese steak, roast beef, tuna, fish, cappicola, egg, hot sausage and salami. Don't expect a plate because it is served on wax paper. Service is usually quick at least at all the locations I have been too. There are 13 restaurants in and around the Pittsburgh area and even Florida has 2 in Fort Lauderdale. The sandwiches are also availabe at PNC Park and Heinz Field with a limited selection of meat. If ever in the area, please experience this taste of Pittsburgh!
Favorite Dish: My favorite is the tuna sandwich
