The food here is consistently delicious. Everything from the wings to the steaks are all done to perfection. The owner is on hand to greet you most times, which is an added bonus. He is friendly, shakes your hand and makes conversation with you. Upon leaving, he again shakes your hand and thanks you for visiting his restaurant. The servers... More

My husband and I have never been to the Paxtang Grill, so we decided to give it a try this past weekend. We were seated right away. I ordered a grilled chicken, onion, spinach, and blue cheese flatbread, and my husband ordered the wing special. The waitress did 'warn' him that their wings were small; they were actually a perfect... More

Paxtang grill has nice fresh food that is a cut above ordinary barfood. This is a community establishment like I would imagine a neighborhood pub to be in England though I haven't had that experience. Service is quick and friendly. There are special events (trivia night for example). Crab cakes are a specialty. Prices are much better than at other... More

This is a small, local, neighborhood bar/restaurant. I had the avocado BLT from the lunch special menu with fries. The sandwich roll was not real fresh and for me, the bread is an important part of what makes a sandwich good. There was a good amount of bacon on the sandwich and appropriate amount of avocado, lettuce & tomato. The... More

I went here because of the great reviews. But I was bamboozled. The best part was watching the game. The food was thoroughly mediocre. It was wing night, so I got 2 dozen.....of the smallest, boniest, stringy wings ever. More like baby chicken wings. A dozen wings anywhere else is more than 2 dozen here. And their idea of Cajun...

Excellent relaxed atmosphere, AWESOME burger (Paxtang Avenue burger... Gotta try this link one!), perfect fries, Goose Island IPA on tap and the spot on perfect service of Jenn the Bartender (tell her Mark said hi!)...if you're having n town and you don't stop by, you'll regret it for the rest of your life! :-) ...so just do it!
