I was there on Dec 27 2013 to see some bands play. Granted, we grabbed a table right in front where the bands play and I did not leave except to go to the bathroom 2x for the most part. None on there had any issues with anything. It is a smoke free bar which is great for me. The food was good and the waitress was great. The crowd was younger but then again the bands playing were pretty young. I did catch the occasional pit whiff but I catch that often when going to see bands so really nothing out of the ordinary here Everyone had a good time.

Im really tired of reading these reveiws from people that dont get it!! The Lyndora Hotel is a Icon....its old and has character- its a great place for fun and for families!! I have been living in the Allegh&Butler county area my entire life . I eat at some of the most expensive restuarants and some of the cheapest diners in both counties, but i must say the Lyndora has the best wings i ahve ever had. Yes its a bar ....Yes its a old hotel.. and yes it has great food!!!! so if your looking for good wings and good times - go to the Lyndora - if your looking for formal dining try "Fresco's" in wexford... Geez people get it together the LYndora is a great fun place!!

If you can find the parking lot, after driving around the block a few times,
Make your way through the crowd of coke heads run amok. Have a seat at the hundred year old bar, and enjoy the musty cellar-like atmosphere.
Or, you could try to squeeze in between the random labyrinth of tables.
If you can stomach the smell of mold + urine, I'd recommend ordering anything on the menu. The food is actually the only good thing about this place. Altho, I waited an hour for wings on a dead night.
After your meal, you may want to smoke some pot on the porch, or sneak off with the owner + his pals to blow some rails in the back room with the rats.
Staff is nice + food is good. Everything else got left behind with the age of the building.. Really quite fitting for Lyndora, tho.
It's the Hollywood of Heroine County, U.S.A.

I must say that reading some of posts were very disheartening.. I was born and raised in Lyndora and have been living out of town for 44 years. We come back every year to the Hotel to eat the awesome wings and hot sausage sandwiches. I've been going to the Hotel since I was a very young child and even though we don't having family alive anymore in the area, it's like a step back into the past to come 'home' and eat there. Some of the same people are still there and have been off and on for many years. Having a connection with the Pawks who owned it for a long long time, it's good to see the new owners Harry and his wife are very nice and doing a great job, by not dropping all the old favorites but being innovative in the new things they are making and now expanding upstairs.. Awesome. Lyndora needs a boost in this present day economy and has a great history and the Lyndora Hotel is keep ing that alive.
I'm nominating it for Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.. it deserves it..

I've eaten at the Lyndora twice now... Early in 2010 when my band was playing upstairs, and again just a week ago with my ladyfriend who lives near the area.... Outstanding wings, crab cakes, and spinach artichoke dip.... Not going to out and out call the reviewer below named Jason a liar, as I did not witness the exchange between his wife and the owner, but I'm betting there is way more to the story than he is letting on... I was Harry's supervisor at another establishment for 3 years... Not once, no matter how much pressure he was under, or how far behind the kitchen got, whatever difficult circumstances were thrown our way, did I ever see him lose his composure or raise his voice to anyone... He was a solid anchor on that staff, certainly made my job easier, and I think anyone who actually knows him would agree... I suspect Jason's wife kept pressing him, pushing his buttons, and causing a scene at the bar until he'd heard enough... Not going to address the review directly below, as anyone with even a modicum of common sense can tell that their review is a load of BS.

The wonderful owner "Harry" of the Lyndore Hotel told my wife tonight to "Shut The F Up And Quit Your Bitching". (Exact Words, I heard him.) This was just after she ordered a Captain and Coke and they gave her a Genaric Spiced Rum and Coke and pushed it off as CAPTAIN. She Was very nice and approached Harry( the owner) and told him what happened. A few minutes after that, he Cursed at her and told her to "Shut The F Up And Quit Your Bitching"!!! Needless to say, We will NOT EVER Go Back!!!!

The new help seems to be personality free, but thank GOD the old mill-hunky crowd was displaced. I used to bar tend there in the early 90s. Guy's would run me ragged for up to 8 hours, and leave a nickle tip...A freakin NICKLE! I complained once, and a guy said "if you want more money, get a real job..."

It's nice to see a better crowd in there.

The Lyndy is a great mix of the past and present. Thank God someone had the guts to rescue it! My grandfather brought me there as a teenager. The new menu is far better than anything offered there for years. As for Smitana K, This isn't the Hyholde. Better stick to Cranberry where you'r safe

I eat at the hotel on a regular basis. Either to watch the penguins play or the steelers. I have yet to see drug deals or someone plotting their next drug deal as the one poster implies. Although its not the best looking place it is by far one of the best wing places around; and large wings. To me better than going to Quaker Steak and Lube and paying their high prices and only getting little pieces. As for the smell from the bathrooms, I haven't noticed any smell and I use the bathrooms there. I think BKK was right, I believe the other posters were posting from other establishments. I have yet to find anything I didn't like to eat there and the food is always good. Especially the wings! I love the Parmesan ranch ones! Try em!

what a treat: stopped in on a whim on the way to Johnstown Pa... I didn't see any drug dealers nor any drugs, the place was well lit with 3-4 families eating and the beer was cold.. The wings really large and they gave you all three parts.. the place was clean and no odors from the bathrooms and they were spotless..
The people who wrote those bad reviews must be the competition. This place was an excellent place to stop for lunch not fast food but worth the wait... and the wait staff was pleasant and very kind they went out of their way to give us directions around butler to save us time. I'll go back any day.

this place offers a wide array of different foods. i would not like to eat there, as the "atmosphere" there is not what i care for. it's a little too dark and dingy for my liking; however, the food there is good. so, as long as i send my husband inside to pick up the food for us to eat at home, every thing's fine. they do have excellent wings, along with other great "greasy" good foods!!

Ah yes, upon entering you'll notice the soft glow of the marquee. You will then walk past the local vagrant drug dealers sluggishly perched upon their rumps at the bar planning their next magnificent drug deal. You are mesmerized by the oily sheen of the mullets, which overwhelm the area of their head and face. They catch you staring at them which forces you further down the bar area. With a smile, you will then pass the restroom which emits the malodorous scent of urine. Exquisite!!! I'm hungry now! Alas you find a vacant seat. Grab a menu... with all the merriment and gaiety of a child on Xmas day, you give your order to the aged hobgoblin behind the bar. "I'll have an order of hot wing please." She responds..."We ain't got none of those no more today. We ran out." "O.k." you say "I'll just take a beer then." With a disgusted look upon her face, she loathsomely takes time out of her oh so important smoke break to fetch your spot of ale. As you indulge in the first gulps, you are met with the warm skunked wetness of Iron City, which is only highly regarded by the very drug dealing, trash bag, bottom feeders you passed on your way in. Ready to vomit, you casually place your money back in your pocket and calmly exit the once honored and prestigious establishment. As you walk back to your car, you catch yourself longing for the days of past owners, who were good and honest folks, often giving you something beyond obligation...Gratitude. Oh well... I guess nothing lasts forever and all things must change, for better, or in this case, for worse.

Established in 1901, it is rare to find such character in an establishment. Founded by a Czechoslovakian mill-worker (mill-hunky) named Jasonelie Chihonski, the Lyndora Hotel is still a local favorite 107 years later. Here you will find rustic ambiance and pleasantly charming company. One can still hear the whistle of the steel mill and hum-chime of the railroad, which still operate outside of its door(s). For the pallet, you cannot find a zestier wong o?? fowl anywhere, and the robust fillet of fin is miraculous ?? they say the fish are the freshest around, Golden Cyprinidae (carp) harvested minutes away from the freshly scrubbed waters of the pristine Connoquenessing Creek. While there, imbibe in a local Iron City Ale, or partake in nearly a gauntlet of liquor when ordering one for down the hatch. Bets of all, you will not lose your portfolio here ?? a filling dinner and spirits for two will likely set you back no more than $20. The Lyndora Hotel; a great place for date-night or family-night!

Awesome bar food...Iron City beer that probably costs no more than the change you have in your pocket...1950's style chrome furniture...burly bartenders, buxom waitresses and regulars who greet you with a mill-hunky waive when you walk in the front - or is it the back - door....all part of a priceless experience! A must on anyone's Lyndora travel itinerary.

I used to like the hotel for their wings and sandwiches until i visited there recently. I was having dinner and was looking around when I saw a rat run into the back room. I was mortified!! I will never go there again and I strongly suggest that no one else goes there either!!

The Lyndora Hotel is not a very nice place to say the least. It's an old, basement like atmosphere. BUT, they have awesome wings and great sandwiches. The prices are right too a couple of bucks for a sandwich. BUT, if you have children keep in mind that it is VERY smokey. Not fancy, just sit back and enjoy some wings and a beer. Kind of like an Eagle's or Knights of Columbus setting. Parking is ok, there is a lot across from the hotel. The Lyndora is located just past the Thrift Store at Whitestown Rd and Hansen St heading South toward Rt 8.

PROS: Great wings!
CONS: Very smokey!!
