The rural location of Clover's Cottage can make finding a quick bite to eat a little more difficult than a simple Google search. The hidden gems of Schuylkill County and northeastern Dauphin County are hardly ever chain restaurants and bars. They often are valued for the people you can meet there as much as the food they serve. So what are our favorites? Where have our guests enjoyed going? Below is our current list of "Dat's Gooooood Eatin'"*!
Dat's Gooood Eatin'!  *


Traci's Place - 2200 E. Main Street (Rt. 25) Sacramento - 570-682-1020 - Open for breakfast and lunch, we offer local favorites as well as creative twists on classic dishes.

Jack's Spot at the Purple Pump - 1071 Vista Rd Pitman - (570) 644-2120 - Located on the corner of Ridge Road and Vista Road in Pitman, PA, Jack's Spot is home to a large array of great food, friendly faces, and a large selection of spirits...and yes, there is also a famous local landmark - a purple pump

Boardwalk Family Fun Center - 662 East Market Street, Gratz - (717) 365-3510 - This classic drive-in serves hard ice cream and soft ice cream in nearly endless flavors and varieties. But they also have a full menu with a wider variety of foods. Eat outside on a warm summer night or inside with air-conditioned seating. They've been dipping it up since 1969!

Swing Restaurant at Lykens Valley Golf Resort - 1724 Route 25 Millersburg 717-692-3632 Enjoy the warm modern interior and views of the beautiful Lykens Valley Golf Course from Swing Restaurant.

Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant - 116 West Market Street Pottsville - 570-628-5551 - Eat where the locals eat. Italian menu. Restaurant and bar. Tina's tip - Italian Salad with House Dressing is a must-have if you want a fresh, consistently crisp and delicious veggie fix.

The Wheel Restaurant - 201 West Market Street Pottsville - 570-622-2700 - A Reader's Choice winner year after year - perhaps because they offer a "Build-Your-Own-Gourmet-Grilled-Cheese with 75 ingredients to choose from! What's not to love?
