My husband and I were driving around Old Forge/Inlet for an hour on a Tuesday looking for somewhere to eat, when we pulled into Hard Times we found a hidden treasure. Open from breakfast to dinner they are always a favorite stop of ours. The food is excellent and home-cooked. The waitstaff are all hard-working, and incredibly friendly and helpful. The prices are beyond reasonable for this area. The owner even came out to talk to us after she had cooked our meal herself. I absoluety recommend this restaurant, (and suggest the Taco Salad for lunch...and Chicken Parmesan for dinner). It's busy at times, but only because it is so amazing.
Pros: Reasonal prices, Friendly staff, Comfortable enviromen
