In Chambersburg for 3 day business trip. Co-worker said this place was the "best in town". Oy!!! I had a draught beer, salad, burger & fries. Beer was fresh & cold. Salad was stored in the 'fridge so it was over-chilled with generic dressing. Burger ordered medium rare, served well done. Fries hot & crisp. Dessert offered as made in... More

I have been here twice and have had amazing meals, but it could use a facelift. I have been told band nights get packed, but we were here weeknights and it has been nice for conversation. The last time I was here it was COLD. I would not recommend sitting anywhere close to the entry door, even if you are... More

We enjoyed a quiet meal (before the band arrived) which consisted of salads and appetizers. The portions are large so sharing an entrée is recommended. The food was excellent and the atmosphere cordial.

First impression.....waitresses were too busy to great us. Our table had to be set up even though we had a reservation. They sat us in the lounge area, which was not bad except for that we faced the wall...which had a very poorly done drywall and paint repair and ceiling tiles that were obviously water damaged and stained. Waitress was... More

You can always count on a good meal, many times and exceptional meal and frequently an excellent meal. Chef Pat always strives for excellence in his specials.

My parents have been following Chef Pat Young for years, this is his third restaurant and as with the others the food is always outstanding. We took my mother for her 89th birthday and she got her favorite, mussels in white wine garlic sauce. They were so plump and flavorful my mom devoured them! I had the black and blue... More

Visited Ej's Grill for first time. We were seated promptly and had drinks within 5 minutes of arriving. I already decided to order crab cakes before I was even there however the server went over that nights features so I chose the sea bass. OMG this dish was absolutely to die for. The sea bass was grilled to perfection, topped... More

My husband and I decided to eat here on reviews from Tripadvisor. The specials of the night were all "Oktoberfest" related. We both decided on the Sauerbraten, which was so tender and delicious! I got the sides of sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Hubby got sides of a braised red cabbage and mashed potatoes. We were both stuffed, as the portions... More
