Family House Restaurant had to unfortunately close in December 2010. Red Zone Sports Bar and Grille is now the restaurant in the former Family House Restaurant building.
Some of you might be turned off by the fact that it is called a bar now. BUT, there is a separate dining room where you do not see the bar because the owners wanted it to still have a family like feel. There are 6 tvs in the dining room and 4 tvs in the bar area, which are always locked on a sport event or channel.
Most people went for the buffet. The chicken was fabulous! There are now new owners and new management. They only have the buffet on weekends, not including Sunday night. When we ordered from the menu, they were out of most of the food we wanted and we got up and left.
My mother and I stopped here 10/15/2009 and each got the $7.99 dinner buffet which consisted of a very nice salad bar - both leaf and iceberg letuce, spinach, raw broccoli chunks, many toppings (like cheese, onion, chick peas, croutons, bacon bits, etc) and 5 different flavors of dressing. The main course section had broasted chicken, kielbasa (approx 1 inch sections done with onions and peppers), turkey rolls (turkey breast meat rolled around some stuffing and mashed potatoes) in gravy, mashed and boiled potatoes, stuffing, green beans, mixed vegetables and I'm sure I've missed some items. Mom had some Perry's Ice Cream in Caramel Cup Craze served by a very pleasant young lady who was very attentive and promptly removed our dirty plates. She stopped by several times and asked if we needed anything and if we were enjoying dinner. We will definitely go back. The bill for both of us was under $20 and we had a very pleasant experience. For Philadelphia area travellers travelling to Penn State, it is convenient to Rt 322 - they even have the Penn State football schedule on the placemats.
Actually can we give it a negative star? I was up all night eating prilosec and the other half doesn't feel well this a.m. The other member took off today because of gastric distress. First, the other half and I had the buffet:
The roast beef was dry and tough. The liver was the best thing on there and it was swimming in grease. I could have done my axels. The fried Chicken had the same amount but it was all IN the chicken plus, it was dry. I can't figure that one out unless they let it soak in the grease before they cooked it to death. I didn't try the other meats. They looked half cooked or way too over cooked as well as the BBQ chicken which looked downright raw. The veggies were cooked to mush. The corn was brown. The salad bar veggies looked as if they were picked in Aug. They were pale and limp. The dessert bar consisted of dry chocolate cake, dry gingerbread and HARD sugar cookies. I thought I would break a tooth. I cut the small pieces of cake in half and it was way to much considering I had to pour the coffee down to get it down. The glass of Mountain Dew was large [actually size was med large and priced large too]. The coffee was old or at least tasted old. The friend had the fried haddock. That was large pieces served when we were halfway thru the salad bar. The side salad they opted for had a large hunk of brocc and a large hunk of cauliflower thown in. It was do it yourself break it up to manage to eat it. The service was not so much 'bad' as extremely ill trained. Our waitress tried. She just didn't the correct way. The only thing I can honestly say is if someone thinks this is good? I would hate to eat at their house.
