This is a tiny little corner pizza place with all the usual menu items. They don't have a large dining area, but I've never had to wait for a booth. They serve beer, which is a plus, but their Sicilian pie is their specialty. The service is no frills but with plenty of personality. The prices are pretty cheap. For an appetizer, try their homemade French fries, a surprisingly flavorful treat.
Locals know that this little place is the best place in town to get a good, cheap breakfast. For a couple of bucks you can get a nice-sized breakfast, unlimited coffee, and great service. It's not the type of place that jumps out at you, but if you want to know Luzerne's best-kept secret, try Mary's.
I go to this store all the time because it's close and convenient, but those are the only reasons I go there. The prices are higher than the average grocery store, and their selection isn't so great. Ever since the other Gerrity's closed, this store is constantly mobbed. Also, their computers are down pretty frequently, while the lines get longer and customers' patience dissolves.
This is a small bar and grill with a very hometown feel. They get a good lunch crowd on weekdays, and the place really gets rocking on the weekends. The food is only so-so, but at least it's cheap. They have a great jukebox and some good beers on tap. Park your car in the lot across the street.
The review title says it all. If you're in a bind and need some kind of sport item right now, go to Dick's. They're bound to have it. But if you have time to shop around or wait for another store to order something for you, you could save some money. The staff is very friendly.
If you're on Main Street in Luzerne and need gas or some sort of convenience item, you might as well stop here and get it. They don't have magazines or toys or the sort of frivolous things that most stores have. But they do have a great selection of beer. There are some shady people working the counter, but not so bad that I wouldn't recommend it.
I take all of my copying and printing needs to the Copy Max within this store. They are always pleasant and fast, getting my order done while I wait or browse the store. The prices are cheaper than you'd think for quality printing. The staff within the general store is happy to help you find what you need. A cool feature of Copy Max is that you can upload your project and email it the store so it's ready when you get there.
Magikal Gardens is small from the outside and even smaller on the inside. However, they use their limited space very well. There is stuff (T-shirts, stickers, memorabilia) everywhere. If there is anything you want but can't find, ask the person behind the counter. They probably have it in a nook or cranny you haven't looked in yet. Everything here is cool and average priced. The staff is laid back and waits for you to come to them. But when you do approach them with a question, they're happy to help.
Utopia is at a great location and welcomes all their customers with one-on-one service. The staff knows a lot about their products. If you tell them what you want and what you're willing to spend, they'll pick out several options for you. Besides their products, they're ready with answers to all of your questions. For the space they have, they could offer a lot more merchandise. As it is, the store feels very sparsely laid out.
Wilkes is located in the heart of Wilkes-Barre. Even though you're in upstate Pennsylvania, you still can enjoy the cultural feel of an urban education. The classes are small so professors have time to spend with each individual student. Wilkes has award-winning publications and a state-of-the-art theatre group as well as a new, but well-known writing program. Every year, they host a national writers' conference.
