This restaurant is on the top floor of the old, historical general store. And this building is across the street from Seneca Rocks hiking area. The General store was interesting and the family owners knew, and provided, so much history about the building. We ate on the open porch with a perfect view of the Seneca Rocks. We ordered a...

Visited in July 2016 after climbing Seneca. We were seated quickly and the staff was friendly. We ordered three different pizzas and they came out quickly, and boy were they tasty! Like others have said there is also a really good view of Seneca from the deck of the restaurant. So if you are in the area, I recommend that... More

It's a good place to get basic food at a fair price and the views from the balcony are terrific. it's usually busy and the small staff is often overwhelmed creating some chaos.

This is not your local Sheetz. A must see for the young ones. It's a step back in time. The restaurant is upstairs and the general store is a step back in time. The food was average but the experience was much appreciated. I'm glad we stopped. It's byob casual with mountain climbers packing the place on a Saturday night.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stop here. Wonderful friendly staff and the store had such character. So many interesting things to look at and purchase with excellent pricing. Also purchased gas. Same location for over 100 years so you know its a must see.

Great pizza! We went on a Saturday night and it was really crowded. We got seated within about 20 minutes. It is BYOB but there is a store below to purchase and bring to the restaurant. It has great views of the mountain!

Went to the Front Porch after hiking up to the observation deck at Seneca Rocks. It was a great place to rest and the outside deck offers absolutely spectacular views of Seneca Rocks. The food was very average but no complaints and not a lot of other options (actually no other options) at the 'Rocks.

Very mixed reviews of this place. This is the back-country, not the big city. Nothing fancy, just the best pizza I ever ate, and I have been around. It doesn't get much better than eating it on the porch below the incredible Seneca Rocks. Service was excellent, but there were only 3 table occupied. Prices are quite reasonable.

This restaurant provides fantastic views from the outdoor dining and the food is average. The night we went however there were some issues with wait staff and service was slow. This might not always be the case however as one person was new. We had the pizza and it had a good crust but the sauce was a bit plain.... More
