disappointed - (Rating: 2.0 of 5.0)
My husband has previously enjoyed the meat loaf special on Sundays, and I have found the Reuben to be better than most places, so today we ventured forth for a meal out. No one likes a bad review, but then few improve without honest criticism, so here goes:

The attitude of the waitress immediately showed itself. Her offhand and somewhat annoyed manner were not what one expects from someone whose job is to serve. She brought our food, and seemed to think we should be grateful for that. During the entire meal, she never once came back to see if everything was OK. There were only 2 other customers, so it wasn't as though she was too busy. Because the Reuben was so overdressed I had difficulty picking it up, and needed a napkin to wipe my hand on each time I did. The lone napkin wrapped around my cutlery was soon used up. Since the waitress had disappeared, I had to go into the bar to ask for another napkin, and they gave me a pile of the ones they use to set a drink on, which were too thin and completely useless for what I was dealing with. This was more like, I dunno, Reuben salad and should have been served in a bowl. Apparently the corned beef (?) was ground up, which might have been OK if there hadn't been SO MUCH dressing on it. Each time I picked it up it squished out the sides and dripped onto the plate, taking meat with it. Any corned beef or sauerkraut flavor was unrecognizable. I have my doubts as to whether there was actually SWISS cheese on it; cheese yes, and again too much, and chewy; I'm guessing Mozzarella or some mix. On a brighter note, I enjoyed the salt-free fries.

When my husband paid the bill (his meat loaf was fine), he commented on the Reuben, simply stating that it had been rather soupy. Just like the waitress, the girls behind the bar agreed that they are soupy. No apology, no 'how can we fix this' from either of them. Sheesh, if the sandwiches are SOUPY, do something about it!
I can make my own reuben a lot better. Next time I'll save myself the trip.

My advice: hire some grownups.

A great Big Thank you to Dundee, for a wonderful luncheon, The food was excellent, and plentiful. I would recommend Costello Inn
Either a small luncheon or dinner for two, or groups. The staff is wonderful can not do enough for each person. If your looking for a great, meal, lunch, dinner, or for a special occasion, you can not go wrong.

Best in Northcentral PA - (Rating: 5.0 of 5.0)
Best food and service you will find in PA mountains. When hubby and I go to camp we eat at Costellos two - three times a week. Service is outstanding!!!! We try to sit at Craig's table if not possible nothing to worry about service will still be good. Have never been disappointed with any meal portion sizes huge so go hungry. Well worth the trip

The Costello Inn has excellent food and great atmosphere. Always look forward to stopping on the snowmobile or taking the long way home through the back country. Highly suggest the reuben. Home made pies are really good too. To bad it's so far from Bradford.

Great Valentines Day Dinner For Two! - (Rating: 5.0 of 5.0)
We thoroughly enjoyed the Valentines Day Special! We had your bourbon glazed sirloin with mushrooms and it was wonderful. The raspberry and chocolate parfait for dessert was pure heaven. We really enjoyed listening to the guitar entertainment while enjoying our meal. Great food --great evening!

Good Food, Best Pies Ever - (Rating: 5.0 of 5.0)
Have eaten at The Costello Inn every time I have traveled to that area of Pennsylvania. The food is outstanding, the price reasonable and their pies - well you cannot get a better piece of pie. I have had the pleasure of being there on a Friday night for their fish fry and it is outstanding. The piece of haddock hangs over both sides of your plate and is delicious along with a tossed salad and home made french fries. It is worth the drive from Maryland just to eat at this restaurant! The staff is friendly and very helpful. Next time you are in Costello, Pa make sure you stop. Oh, by the way, their chicken wings are really good also. I certainly enjoy their food, their friendly staff and am planning a trip soon and will definitely be eating there!!!

Birthday Dinner - (Rating: 5.0 of 5.0)
Had a great birthday dinner w/my family - awesome, melt in your mouth food served by Craig who is by far one of the best waiters I have ever had! Poor guy bowed to every request from our party of 5 (and there were many) with pleasure and immediate attention. They will definitely be seeing us again and hopefully soon :) Thanks again Craig for ensuring that our meal was the best!

Ribs! - (Rating: 5.0 of 5.0)
If you like baby back BBQ ribs this is the placed for them. I consider myself a connoisseur of BBQ ribs and Mike knows how to cook them. Normal folks will struggle eating the full rack.....especially with a couple of beers to wash them down. I think they only have them on Friday and Saturday, so get there early before they run out. Truly awesome!
