After the Ride: Local Favorites

Oakhurst Tearoom Make sure to have the Ham Pot Pie! Delicious! The cole slaw is spectacular...
2409 Glades Pike, Somerset PA — (814) 443-2897
Slopeside Table: ask for by the window but be careful, during the day it gets hot. Breakfast: the omelet station is delicious. Italien night: pasta station is the best
Helen's Restaurant Cream of asparagus soup is excellent. Also sorbet is tasty
The Italian Oven The Sweet and Hot chicken is really good. Homemade sauce.
The Country Pie Shoppe The pies, the donuts, the bread, the cookies..... You getting my drift. EVERYTHING!!!
Hoss's Family Steak and Sea I love Hoss's. Steaks are decent & free salad bar with your steak means you eat the salad bar items and take the steak home for a midnight snack :-)
Arby's Service needs to be a little faster.
109 Lewis Drive, Somerset PA — (814) 443-1181
Eat'n Park Surprised to find a celiac free menu! Pretty exciting to get a simple sandwich at a diner style eatery!
926 N Center Ave, Somerset PA — (814) 443-4579
Summit Diner Fried pickles are great. Tastes like they use fried chicken batter- nice and peppery.
791 N Center Ave, Somerset PA — (814) 445-7154
Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant It's pretty good. I'm a connoisseur of Mexican food and to be really authentic you need to serve Licuados and Flautas as an appetizer. Flautas are only available in a combo meal. No Licuados at all :(
780 N Center Ave, Somerset PA — (814) 443-2329
Frank's Pizza Great pizza nice service
The Original Pie Shop Friendly service, great prices, even better baked goods
Connections Café Tons of healthy options. Everything is fresh and delicious.
109 S Market St, Ligonier PA — (724) 238-9611
Ligonier Tavern Try the McGregor Martini!
137 W Main St, Ligonier PA — (724) 238-4831
Auntie Anne's gotta try the Sweet Almond Pretzel
Brady's The southwest chicken panani is fantastic!
3242 State Route 31, Acme PA — (724) 423-4566
Forks Inn This place isn't what it used to be since it was rebuilt. It's cold & commercial, too loud and no decorative touches makes it boring. The food's not as good. Not enough TV's & no Juke Box. Don't like
Coal Miner's Cafe Get in on the Sunday buffet (11AM to 2PM) at 2 all is free *even the desserts!Cheap rental rooms upstairs are great for skiing or reunions.
Green Gables Been patrons of this restaurant for yrs. Always new, delicious entrees. Amazing wedding venue. Rustic & charming, lovely grounds. Make it dinner, a play (@ Mountain Playhouse) & a stay (@ the B&B)!!!
Darlington Inn
