I established Off the RAK, in the fall of 1996, as a place where people could come and enjoy a variety of great food and fantastic drinks, in a very comfortable atmosphere. On October 29, 2010, a devastating fire broke out that caused major damage, and the restaurant had to be ripped down to 2-by-4 studs and rebuilt from the ground up.
What we have now is a newly renovated restaurant with three atmospheres, three personalities, and no dress code. The elegant, two story dining room is the perfect place for a family dinner, romantic date, or to gather a group together to celebrate any special occasion. The beach inspired patio has a relaxed atmosphere that will leave you feeling like you’re on a tropical getaway, even in the middle of a Pennsylvania snow storm. The fully stocked bar has multiple flat screens, a projection screen, and unique chill rail that becomes a prime location to socialize and watch the game. Our bar also boasts a collection of over 100 liquors. We have something for everyone; whether you are in blue jeans or a suit, we will make you feel like a regular. If you have enjoyed yourself, please tell a friend or associate. If we did not meet your expectations, please inform a server, a manager, or myself.
My goal is for you to have a great dining experience. Thank you for coming, and I appreciate your patronage.
