Pros
"The atmosphere is great because of the tremendous history. Food is good but a little expensive. "
Cons
"The waitress was a inexperienced/rude young lady. Plopped the food down and walked away. Never came back to ask if we needed anything. Gave us the wrong price for upgrading a side. The waitresses seemed more interested in their own conversations. No hello"

I discovered the Jean Bonnet Tavern after I left the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville.

Located on the Lincoln Highway (AKA US 30), the Jean Bonnet Tavern has a pretty interesting history. Serving food and drink to travelers and locals since 1780, it was built on the only road connecting eastern Pennsylvania with the Ohio River and territories beyond. The tavern became a meeting place for the farmers involved in the Whiskey Rebellion. In mid-1794, Pennsylvania farmers, angered by the federal excise tax on whiskey, met here and raised a liberty pole in protest. Then in October 1794, troops summoned by President George Washington camped here on their westward journey to quell the insurrection.

The Tavern is a true roadhouse with a bar and restaurant on the ground floor and overnight accomodations on the second floor.

When I ate there the service was very knowledgable and friendly. I sat on the wraparound porch which offers a view of the valley and had the French Onion soup and a side of steam veggies and they were perfectly fixed. Also had a couple local Penn. beers.

If you are a history buff or as in my case, a hungry history buff who was a wee bit turned around on a road trip after taking a unplained detour, the Jean Bonnet Tavern makes a pleasant and tasty waypoint.
