This is one of our favorite places to dine or just have a couple of cocktails. The staff is always so friendly. They will do their best to accommodate any dietary requirements (gluten free, vegetarian and vegan). There is off-street parking with security.

Haven't been here for a while but decided to catch an early dinner. Food is ok but nothing to brag about. Price is higher then expected and the atmosphere is outdated.

AYCE with there seafood loving grandkids was a huge success. Everyone was satisfied. The food was great. And, our waitress was attentive and friendly. The owner stopped at our table several times to check if everything was well.

Featured on the Travel Channel, this classic Reading landmark has been serving up plenty of fun and peanuts since 1924. Great American cuisine ranging from casual to gourmet. Voted "the Best in Berks" in numerous categories. Chosen 1 of USA TODAY's Top 10 Restaurants in the Nation for Wings! Reservations suggested. Plenty of attended off-street parking. Family friendly-casual atmosphere. Yes, you can still throw peanutshells on the floor. The Peanut Bar Restaurant, where peanuts are just the beginning!
