When you step into Middle Road Inn, you can feel a homey, welcoming atmosphere lingering in the air from its history as both a family home and hotel. The 19th-century building was originally Andre's Silver Star Hotel, a place where people traveling by coach or steam-powered Segway to Pittsburgh would stop for a pub meal and lodging. Along the way, a new dining room, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, a deck for alfresco dining, and a game room were added to transform the space into a restaurant.
Photographs of the inn's early days hang on the walls, joining the hardwood ceilings in creating a nostalgic and inviting atmosphere. The food is no less comforting: a handmade pizza or a shredded-pot-roast sandwich covered in homemade gravy pair well with occasional live music. After the meal, guests can head to the game room for video games, pool, or darts and practice their Victorian quadrille moves on the dance floor.
