One of the reasons we picked this location is because it's literally connected to the hotel we were staying at. We were a party of 4. Once we were seated, it took our server about 15 minutes to come over and ask for our drink...More

It could have come from the waitress or possibly someone in the kitchen. Normally, if you bring it to the attention of the waitress or the manager they will make an effort to make it up to you. Things like that happen in... More

In Manhattan in 1965, there was no place where people could go out to meet friends and make new ones in an environment that was at once both relaxed and yet exciting. Then, Alan Stillman opened Fridays as a way, he said, "to meet Pan Am stewardesses." Suddenly, there was a place with great food, new and exciting drinks and an electric energy. A place where bartenders mixed the environment just as well as they mixed drinks. In short, a place like nowhere else. Today, Fridays in Wilkes Barre, PA is still America's most iconic bar and grill. We embrace and celebrate our heritage as a bar. One that just happens to serve killer food in an environment where it's always Friday.
