We would not go back. Our server was very pleasant. Unfortunately the food was not. Our crab soup was very mushy. The crab meat tasted like it has been simmering in the pot for days or reheated too many times. The BBQ shrimp was okay, nothing exciting. My expectations for a Maryland restaurant to have excellent crab cakes and fresh... More

We were a party of 14 and the server was cordial. Service was very slow. Again, it was a large party, however, the food took over an hour to receive after ordering. A request for no mayo on a sandwich was not honored and it had to be sent back. Otherwise, the experience was fine.

What  a great birthday dinner I had at the Union Hotel.  We have been there before having lunch and dinners and the food was very good.   This visit, we had the cream of crab soup and it was very good, perhaps needed a little more cream or thickness but taste-wise it was great.  The salads were great, crisp mixed...

Sixteen of us went on a Wednesday evening and enjoyed some of the finest food of our lives. seated at two 8-person tables, we were served by two excellent and friendly waitresses. The kitchen responded to our varied requests in a most professional manner. All 16 entrees were served steaming hot within a five-minute period. Among the fine dishes were... More

Union Hotel has a reputation as a biker bar, but that is the outside tavern. Inside it is a step back in time to quaint rooms and early American decor. The wait staff was in costume and very helpful with helping us to decide what to order. We were with another couple and we all ordered different things. The crab... More

We went to the Union Hotel many years ago, when it was in it's heyday. They were known for good ribs and hearty home style food. The atmosphere is lovely. Candles on the table give the room a romantic glow and the overall look of the rooms is very quaint and cozy. The service is OK, but the server's costumes... More

Stopped in for late lunch..early dinner today for first time. What a Fantastic experience. The decor is Early American...tasteful furnishings throughout. The pricing was reasonable and the food was fresh and seasoned well. From the homemade bread to the "Guinness baked" cake, it was worth every penny. I took a brochure to be sure to tell all my Lancaster friends.... More

This is a very nice restaurant with an old country ambiance. The proprietors have worked hard in making the old hotel into a place that we enjoy going to for the food & the service!!! In fact it has become one of our “Special Occasion” spots for those romantic intimate celebrations such as anniversaries and/or birthdays. We have been patronizing... More
