Rehearsal Dinner in or near Wilkes-Barre

Hi! I'm getting married in October in Plains and am looking for a restaurant to hold our rehearsal dinner. We are anticipating 25-30 people and are really interested in quality of food and service. A Wilkes-Barre location would be ideal, but we are willing to travel a short distance. We will likely need a place that will be able to accomodate steak lovers and vegetarians. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Hi, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! My husband and I were married in October at the Woodlands Inn and Resort. We had our rehearsal dinner there and enjoyed it but since we haven't been there in recent years I can't vouch for it now. I have heard good things about Cork Bar and restaurant from relatives in the area.

      I would suggest you check out Patsel's Restaurant in Clarks Summit.

      It is a whimsical, artsy restaurant and has a beautiful patio in their gardens to boot. And the food is fabulous.

      I did a group dinner there for about 20-25 pp this fall, starting with cocktails on the patio and then dinner in the private dining room. They were very accommodating. I seem to recall the cost was around $60 pp.
