If you happen to be in Lewisburg, chances are you are visiting Bucknell. There really isn't much more to the town other than the college and businesses surrounding and serving the college crowd. That said, we were hungry after visiting the school and based on...More

I provided a review back in 2012 and gave Purcell's high marks. They went through a renovation and change in early 2013. I don't know if the food tasted as poor as I thought but the new "Vanilla" atmosphere is anything but an Irish/English pub...More

We've been to visit Bucknell 3 times this year and have eaten at Purcell's each time. Never disappoints. Large selection of items for families from babies to seniors. Live fiddle music was perfect entertainment after a long drive into town. Lots of options for meatless...More

Based on reviews, we tried Purcell's for dinner before a basketball game. We ordered the Fish and Chips, which our waitress praised as Purcell's signature dish. It took 45 minutes before our food came. There was live music which was nice, but we were anxious...More

This local eatery sure has delicious meals. The menu is a mixture of Irish and American. Alittle something for everyone including health conscious folks. Their fish & chip dinner is my favorite. Go Thursday night it's ayce.

Found this place by accident on a Thursday night. All you can eat Fish & Chips on Thursdays & one serving is all you'll need. Our family thinks they are the best in the Susquehanna Valley. Another plus is the live music. Thursday is Irish...More

Thursday night all-you-can-eat fish and chips are amazing, complete with traditional Irish music played live right there in the pub. Service with a smile and old-timey Guinness advertisements all over the walls. Sit in the booths, at a table, or at the bar. Always a...More
