Hottle's was crowded and noisy on a Friday night, but our service was very good. It's too bad that the food and prices did not match the service. MANY of the items listed "market price.," and we should have asked the cost before we ordered. But we thought, "How much can it be in Wilkes Barre!" We soon found out. Hottle's is way overpriced, and the quality, preparation and presentation is ordinary at best. And this comes your way from a couple who just spent almost $200 for dinner 2 nights ago and considered the restaurant worth every penny.

Good food.
Ate there many times.
Menu is a bit pricy for these tough economic times, but worth it.
Order the scampi...good stuff.
They also have a vegetable casserole that is just awesome!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food.

I've eaten at Hottle's many times. Overall, I always had a great experience. The food is pricey, but very good. The staff was always nice. Drinks were great.

I have been to Hottles more than a few times and every time that I went the food was excellent. The prices are a little high but the food is well worth it. We sat at the bar and our bartender was extremely nice and we had a very pleasant experience.

This restaurant use to be a favorite of ours - not for the ambience (which it does NOT have) but for the quality of food and diverse menu selection. Often, we would dine there - with friends, family and business associates because we could rely on it's consistent quality, service and reasonable price.

However, on our most recent visit which was prior to a performance at the Kirby, we became very very ill after eating seafood there. While it didn't "taste or smell" bad while we were eating it, it did not taste as good as it had in the past. We thought they were just having an off night. But, we barely made it through the first half of the show at the Kirby because we soon had such severe stomach cramps and ended up in the bathroom for the entire intermission and part of the second half of the show.

We don't know what's going on at this restaurant but in all honesty are reluctant to give it another try after that type of experience.

Since it was one of hte last good restaruants in the area, we hate to give it a bad review but our most recent experience was terrible.

PROS: Diverse menu, servers
CONS: Lack of quality control, neighborhood
