Jerseytown Tavern is the epitome of going local. Any given Friday night (and most other week nights), this old country place is hopping with people. Barstools are taken fast but no one seems to mind and by 9pm there's usually an overflow onto the porch (weather isn't a factor for the rural Pennsylvanians who frequent the place).
It could probably be said that the food is standard fare, but it takes more than a good cook to make a great meal. Definitely a place to go with a group (call ahead). Service is above average, especially considering there are only a few waitresses hustling the full house. The owner is very involved and is often seen going table to table to porch and last night even parking lot as we were leaving.
Notes: If you go on a Friday with a group call ahead. Favorite foods: the filled chicken breast special, macaroni & cheese, sweet potato fries, liver & onions, chef salad, burgers and wings. While you wait for your meal look around and up the place is filled with all kinds of artwork including a pin up style carving on the post by the bar and lots of wildlife paintings on the old ceiling. Special note: Jerseytown often has live music, mostly an eclectic mix of bluegrass/country style.
