Our favorite-without-peer restaurant near Seven Springs Mountain Resort. While the regular menu is outstanding, we nearly always try any specials. Tonight we had the banana pepper in Parmesan broth ravioli appetizer which was pure creative genius in the preparation. Both the hanger steak (order it rare for the best flavor) and Chilean sea bass were succulent, leaving no room for... More

Cafe in the name, I was hesitant but instead I was floored - so, so good. House Cubano: Everything about this sandwich was spot on - the crispiness of the bread, meat prep, subtle homemade pickles and robust mustard. The sweet potatoes fries were the best restaurant sweet potatoes fries I've ever had - perfect time in the fryer. I... More

We go to Out of the Fire every time we are driving through to see family. Their recently added weekend brunch bloody mary bar gets the party started. Great vibe and always amazing food. We had the cajun mac and cheese and the cheesesteak panini! Now if only they had a liquor license!! BYOB will have to do for now.

I took my wife here, for Valentines Day. This is not the first time I have been here. Every meal I have had the honor of eating has been nothing less than fantastic. This evening consisted of Oysters on the Half Shell, topped w/ a vinegar scallion mix (6 for $12), beautifully presented Ahi Tuna TarTar, succulent Beef Tips w/Risotto,... More

We went without a reservation (next time I will, esp on a weekend) - this place was hopping. We had been before, but it must have been a slow period. We were seated at the "bar" and I'd do that again if I could. This was where you can see the food prep going on and it was a treat... More

Tucked away behind another building on the south side of Rt. 31 just east of the I-76 Donegal exit, this BYOB café is far more than a café. With an upscale mountain interior, the Out of the Fire Café offers a pleasant atmosphere and very good quality food for a luncheon stop. The homemade mushroom soup was excellent and the... More

Brought my wife here for her birthday. We brought a bottle of wine with us and had an amazing meal. The resort we were staying at suggested Out of the Fire Cafe for dinner and it was great! We made a reservation ahead of time and had a nice table near the window. Couldn't have asked for more!

This is a hidden gem! It was recommended by a cousin who lives in the area and it did not disappoint. A great rustic setting and atmosphere that serves gourmet food. Everyone in the family loved what they ordered from the mushroom soup to the sweet potato fries(the best I've ever had), to the Steak nachos to the pulled pork... More

Description

The Cafe is tucked into the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, conveniently located near area ski resorts, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, numerous state parks, and the rushing Pennsylvania Turnpike. Out of the Fire Cafe welcomes guests with an open kitchen where guests are able to peer into a mesmerizing scene of flashing flames and artistic finesse. The spacious dining area is complimented by an incredible view of the Laurel Highlands ridgeline. Deck dining is offered when the weather permits giving diners the opportunity to take in the rolling countryside.
