Weekly Happenings

Wednesday Blue Plate

Every Wednesday brings a new Blue Plate Special to the Herdic House dining room, and whether it’s chicken and biscuits or a Korean bulgogi rice bowl or whatever else we might dream up, it’s always delicious, always made with the best of the season, and always $15, if you eat it at our House…or $17 to go (but our number of to-go orders is often very limited!) We’ll hope to see you out!

Thursday Craft Cocktail & Happy Hour Specials

And on Thursday, our Happy Hours continue, with $1 off beer and $2 off wines by the glass from 5-7 pm, at the bar, as well as inspired craft cocktail specials and a weekly burger feature!

Friday Features

On Friday (or sometimes Saturday, if we’re feeling squirrelly), we’ll post a themed menu of features inspired by what’s fresh and seasonal, what’s happening in the world around us, or maybe even by what the weather is doing—stay tuned to our Facebook page to check out the week’s features, or join our email list below! (It’s a once-a-week email blast, and we’re way too lazy—or maybe busy?—to spam you with daily email.)

    Upcoming Events

    Sunday, March 31

    Of course, we’re open for Easter! It couldn’t be that special Sunday without a delicious ham from Misty Mountain Farm and some creamy scalloped potatoes…and peanut butter pie complete with housemade Easter eggs. But call down for a reservation for Easter dinner between 11:30-2:00, because it’s always a packed house when the Easter bunny comes around…

    Tableside Fridays in April

    One of favorite new traditions is getting our cooks out of the kitchen on Fridays, with a different dish (or a cocktail) prepared tableside each week. It’s a great opportunity to meet a chef and learn a culinary trick or two…all from the comfort of your own seat!

    Sunday, May 12

    If you haven’t told your mother that you love her recently, now is the time to get on that—or, even better, show her you love her by bringing her down for a delicious spring dinner at the Herdic House. We’ll be serving dinner on Mother’s Day, May 12, from 11:30-2:00, with a menu of mother-beloved dishes and, of course, our house favorites…

    Friday, May 24

    When Sid Furst showed up for our mushroom menu in January, it turned out that his mushroom fanaticism was only half the reason he was here: his other priority was setting the date for this year’s Smokefest. Well, that was a mission that was easily accomplished! Mark your calendars, folks, for this annual Herdic tradition, in which Sid, smokemeister, and his ragtag Shad-Smoking Boys, use some green applewood to wrestle wonders from a selection of humble and delicious fishes…

    “We had family Christmas gathering and we were able to have the whole house to ourselves. The food was so good, the service was great, and the decorations/ambiance was perfect for Christmas. It’s a beautiful old Victorian house and it was decorated so beautifully. We will definitely be going back here again. Every detail was attended to.”

    A Gem!
    “Williamsport lacks “big city” fine dining establishments. The Peter Herdic House however, tries to make up for this deficiency, and succeeds on every level. A great chef who uses the “farm to table” philosophy to his advantage, a very good bar and an excellent wine list. Pricey by local standards, but well worth it!”
