My parents used to take me and my brothers to the Ovalon when I was a kid. That was about 50 years ago. It was very good then, and it's just as good now. Their homemade Italian bread is one of a kind, nice and light with a crisp crust. Very good menu with lots of choices. I had a... More

We have eaten in this restaurant for some time now off and on. The food was always to our satisfaction. Although the place is small it is very nice. Would most definitely return. The Ovalon is a restaurant that has been in the same location for as long as I can remember, which is more then 45 years.

I love the atmosphere of the Ovalon and have for years. However, I was in shock at the menu prices for dinners on my last visit. I went out with my family for a special dinner and was going to get a lobster. I changed my mind when I saw their price of $54.95. I got another dinner instead. It... More

We went on a Wednesday evening. Fresh Mozzarella and grilled yellow pepper appetizer with Balsamic vinegar was a real taste treat. Their house balsamic and blue cheese sprinkles dressing was amazing. Great Crab cakes. They made me a side of spaghetti with olive oil and Parmesan. Waitresses were attentive and fun.

I went here with my family. My parents grew up in this area and this family restaurant has been around for more than 50 years. Last night was my first visit. There is a bar that couples were sitting at to have their meal. I could tell that this place had a lot of history. The staff was very friendly... More

It's been some time since I had been to the Ovalon. It's a popular place but I was left disappointed. I got the baked ravioli with meatballs. It was just ravioli on the menu but they baked it for me. The ravioli was very good but the meatballs had way too much filler in them. They were one of the... More

Not a bad place, but really a good place their. Known for its' Italian food, it is OK to good. Service is fine, value is good. But, nothing to write home about. Parking is on the street, and at your own risk.

The Ovalon was a very popular Hazleton restaurant and I always enjoyed the fried meatballs, but you must wear a bullet proof vest to get from your car into the restaurant. There is no parking except on the shadowy side streets full of creeps that damage your car. Our last visit the food and service was not worth dodging lead... More

Description
Family Owned & Operated Since 1946 the Ovalon Bar & Grill is Hazleton's longest standing fine dining restaurant. Today the Ovalon is a Italian fine dining tradition, and stands as the roots of the Scalleat Hospitality Group's three restaurants

Our chefs feature Italian Classics -- as well as contemporary offerings - in our wide-ranging entree selections. For those that enjoy a lighter fare, a sandwich or a small plate at our smoke free bar is an excellent option. Families can sit and appreciate a relaxing meal with their children, who can order from the children's menu. We also have a full menu available for takeout.
