The Tavern on the Square FAQs

What will your hours be? We will be open Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am until 8:00 pm. Friday and Saturday from 11:00 until 9:00 pm and Sunday from 12:00-5:00

What kind of food will you serve? We are going to have a menu that is similar to the one we had at Neshannock Creek Inn (, but with more dinner items. We ran the Neshannock Creek Inn for 18 years. Each year was more successful then it's last. We built up a nice clientle who really seemed to like our restaurant. Some of our best selling menu items were our giant cod fish sandwich, the bacon swiss chicken salad with warm sweet and sour dressing, our reubens, and blackberry cobbler for dessert. Joe also made pot roast, chicken n biscuits, stuffed cabbage rolls and other homemade dinners. The Tavern will be influenced by The Neshannock Creek Inn, and the Old traditional Tavern, but it will be it's own unique restaurant. We have received lots of suggestions and ideas from you, and we are listening to what you want! Really to sum it up, we are going to serve good old fashioned home cooking!

Will you have the sticky buns? Of course!!! We will also make our own parkerhouse rolls and serve them for dinners with the famous Tavern sticky buns.

What will you at the Bakery? The bakery is very small, but we do have a huge kitchen at the Tavern where we'll bake from. We will transport all of the baked goods from the kitchen to the bakery. We plan on having breads, donuts, muffins, cookies, pies, brownies, sticky buns, cinnamon rolls, pastries. The Bakery will also be a coffee shop. We will sell coffee and espressos and lattes and also gourmet coffees that you can buy by the bag. We've never managed a bakery before so it will be a learning experience. We're sure that it will evolve, but we are going to do our best to make it wonderful! I imagine setting a few tables out front, and people coming to buy a coffee and a cinnamon roll and being able to sit out front on the square. I think that would be wonderful!

What changes are you making to the Tavern? We furnished the main dining room with new furniture. We are hanging new window treatments in each room. We are making the lobby into a gift shop. We are changing one of the upstairs rooms *formally the kelly eating club room* into a "library". That will be the room where people can lounge before they get seated, and eventually we want to host gatherings in that room such as small groups, book clubs, lectures etc...
For right now we will use the same tables and chairs that have been at the Tavern for a long time, but eventually if the restaurant does well, we will put new furniture in those rooms too.

Can I make a reservation now? YES! We actually have received quite a few reservations for parties and get togethers! Just call us at 724-901-0001 and talk to Susan.

When are you opening? AS SOON AS WE CAN!!! We were hoping to open by the end of the month, but that might be pushing it. We don't want to open until we are completely ready! Please bear with us and know that when we do open our doors, we will be ready to serve you with love and excitement and anticipation!

What can i do to help? Please keep praying for us. Please pray that God provides for us all that we need. Please pray for our family. Please pray over this building.
That's all for now! I can't wait to see you!
Stay warm! Blessings, Susan
