In 1974, the Minelli family opened South Side Bowl, which locals agree is Scranton, Pennsylvania's home for family fun and entertainment.  South Side Bowl blends traditional entertainment, including 34 bowling lanes and a 14 table billiards room in addition to today's most exciting and entertaining arcade games. Visitors of South Side Bowl have great fun, and many visit for great food and spirits at Scranton's most famous watering hole:  Poor Richard's Pub. 

Poor Richard's Pub officially opened its doors on January 29, 1981.  Why was this name chosen?  The name of the establishment emerged from trips that the Minelli family took on Route 1 to Ogunquit, Maine. On a trip to Ogunquit in the early 1980s, the family Volvo stocked full of luggage, peanut butter sandwiches, and loving family members drove past Poor Richard's restaurant.  Roy, the family patriarch saw the establishment, shared the namesake with his brother Mark, and soon after, Poor Richard's Pub was born in Scranton!  The name fit well, as the Minelli family enjoyed naming the establishment as a tribute to Benjamin Franklin, an American icon and author of "Poor Richard's Almanac.

"Poor Richard's Pub offers guests a warm atmosphere where the drinks are cold, the food is scrumptious, entertainment keeps toes tapping and time with friends is cherished. 

Poor Richard's Pub is one of the favorite hang-outs for employees of "Dunder-Mifflin" on NBC's Emmy Award winning comedy "The Office"!  We thank the cast of NBC's "The Office" for sharing a drink with us!

A must-visit for any fan of "The Office" on a tour of Scranton. Poor Richard’s is like the “Cheers” of “The Office”, except here nobody knows your name…unless you’re Creed. Great little local dive bar.
