The space is large with lots of bar space and a dance floor, but it is all wasted. The food is mediocre at best and the bartenders are either staring at their phones or commiserating about how horrible the owner is to work for, and judging by the energy of the place, I don’t doubt it. I come through Clarion... More

Captain Loomis looks inviting from the street but its interior is rather drab. The food was good but they served an overwhelming amount of it (lasagna). Service is good. On a hot night the restaurant can be warm -- the AC in our room was a wall unit. Recommended.

We were a gathering of 5 ladies having dinner out on a week night. There was one waitress, who seemed very distracted, working all the tables. There was never more than 3 tables of customers at a time. She had been cleaning before we came in and there were decorations piled on one of the tables and cleaning supplies on... More

We were driving I-80 from NJ to Youngstown and decided to check out the restaurants in Clarion. We drove around and decided to give this place a try. It was a terrific choice. I had their Hunter's Pasta, which is a baked pasta dish with lots of goodies like ricotta, black olives, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and wonderful meatballs. Add a... More

We were very pleased with the meals that we had here. They were delicious and presented nicely. The menu had quite a few nice selections and was diverse. Portions were generous and we loved the pricing. Wait staff was friendly but maybe not enough staffing for the number of guests dining. We enjoyed the decor as the dining area had... More

I recently visited the Loomis since yet again change in ownership. I had the fried chicken which had an OK flavor, my wife had stuffed chicken breast and it was not seasoned well at all. Decor does not at all go with price. The quality of food is not what the prices match.

Family of six dined with shockingly no issues, the food was great and our waitress was wonderful. The fried chicken is awesome!

I decided to use The Captain Loomis for a Clarion Basketball Reunion on Homecoming weekend - October 3rd. We had 28 attendees in a Loomis meeting room and dinner was served via a limited menu. I did not want a buffet and people had options to order as they pleased. The Loomis showed flexibility with this menu and billing each... More

My mom and I really enjoy coming here. Our favorite is the Prime Rib dinner that has been a Friday night special for some time. They'e cook your cut to order, if, like my Mom, you don't like your prime rib rare. The dinner comes with one or two sides, as well. Add a generous carafe of wine, and you've... More
