REEDSVILLE - Ron Barner wanted to open a steak house where customers can enjoy a "real steak," so he established Trail's End Steakhouse, a new restaurant in Reedsville.
Located on Old Rte. 322, Trail's End offers both buffet and menu items, including what Barner says is the most popular eat: the 10-ounce ribeye steak.
Other items include chicken and waffles, and homemade pot pie, he said.

Trail’s End Steakhouse, a new restaurant in Reedsville, opened this past July. It offers both buffet and menu items. Owner Ron Barner says the most sold item is the 10-ounce ribeye steak. Located on Old Rte. 322, Trail’s End is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, and from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday. A banquet room, located in the downstairs portion of the restaurant, seats 300 people and is available to rent out for parties and events.
The buffet, which features something different each time, consists of such fare as meatloaf, homemade macaroni and cheese, fried chicken and spaghetti and meatballs. The Sunday breakfast buffet, which launched last month, offers ham and turkey, Barner said.
All of the restaurant's breads and desserts are made on the premises, Barner said, and include apple, blueberry, pumpkin and peach pie, as well as about six different kinds of cake.
Barner, of Lewistown, said he decided to open Trail's End because he currently owns another restaurant, Red's Diner in Lewistown, and he wanted "something for this end of the county."
