Good food, not good service

We went here for our anniversary. My husband ordered the prime rib and I ordered the 6oz steak. I have a gluten & dairy allergy & our server went & got me the gluten free guide to help me order. She got me the vinegrette dressing which is the only dressing that I could have. After taking our... read more

Our first trip based on reviews but our experience was awful. Our server was terrible. Took our order but never saw him again, except when he brought food. Had to ask another waitress for bread. Salad and soup was ok. Main dish was cold to Luke warm. Hash browns were in a pile of oil. Chicken was cool and tasted... More

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.................
