I have twice had occasion to have lunch here after not visiting for many years (it was one of my Mother's favorite restaurants). I am happy to say that the menu is just as broad, the food just as great, and the service just as good as ever!

Well worth taking the time to find in downtown York. The staff at the Holiday Inn suggested it. Put it in your GPS and be mindful of a few one-way streets. There is a large parking lot across the street. I enjoyed the roast beef dinner with a delicious cup of beef vegetable soup prior. My wife had the two... More

I will admit that the food is pretty pricey and I wasn't too impressed by what I had. The do have a lot to choose from and a lot of different types of desserts. Our waiter was awesome, that was the best part, he made us laugh and smile and was great with the kids. This is a fancier restaurant... More

This resturant has been here for a very long time but unlike so many others it is still very good. We were greeted and seated right after we arrived by a very friendly, while very busy staff. Aaron was our waiter and he was exceptional. Friendly, fast, efficient and helpful all rolled into one server. One thing that stood out... More

This place has a fantastic reputation and it's well deserved. Great food, reasonable prices, nice decor. If you are in (or anywhere near) York make the effort to eat at this wonderful restaurant. Super american food - steaks, burgers, seafood, pasta -- all good. When I go to heaven it better have a Chances R or I might not stay.................

Great place for an evening meal. Comfortable, clean and friendly. Prime rib is always my choice! We've been here many times and I'm sure plan on many more!

What a great place, had a supper party, nine of us. Super service, we were greeted at the door and taken right to our party's table. Ordered our drinks, very good, and our meal. Every order was perfect! Can't say enough about our server, very nice!

We stopped off in York for the night and decided to take a drive off the beatin path. This is worth the drive into town for a great meal. We shared the steak and lobster dinner. Before our meal we were served some bread. It was hot and good, I think it was a frozen self rising dough, but a... More
