We will be visiting Wilkes Barre on 3-13 for the Eric Church concert and would like to eat in the general area before concert. Will be coming north on 81 so anywhere along I81 south of Wilkes would work also. I know every area has there own hidden gems for restaurants, so I was wondering if you fellow HPA ers would have any suggestions for me to look into. Not interested in the chain restaurants. Steaks, seafood, or authentic italian would be of interest. Even a place that specializes in awesome burgers.
THANKS in advance.
We love Smokey Bones in Wilkes Barre if that's your style. It's at 265 Mundy Street in Wilkes Barre near Mohegan Sun Arena. We visit it quite often prior to heading to the hockey arena. www.smokeybones.com.

Powerhouse Eatery just off Rt 80 by White Haven Pa. We go there about 4 times a year for the past 25 years.
Great steaks, OK Seafood. Nice atmosphere, good service not cheap but worth the price.
You are about 30 min out from Wilkes Barre.
My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen
