When the bar size was doubled, the bartender service at the bar reduced, inversely. At times, it as if the bar customer is invisible. The atmosphere in the warm, fireplace room is cozy and the wait-service there is much better than at the bar. I always enjoy the Caribbean chicken salad, served with cinnamon butter for the roll.

We went here for a friend's bachelorette party last night. We had a great server!- she was very attentive. Food was great too! I have had some things here that I haven't cared for (stir fry), but I highly recommend sandwiches, burgers, rhino fries (yum!), and crab dip!

Second time eating here on our visits with our daughter to Elizabethtown College. Food is good and so is the service. Large variety and selection to choose from.

This is a great place to go for a wide variety of choices. Their salads are huge and have always been super fresh. They are so good that I always seem to gravitate toward them instead of trying other menu items. My husband has tried several things and a favorite is the crab cake sandwich. The bar is huge, has...

This is a busy place and it goes on forever- I think in the summer they can seat a couple hundred easy. Huge menu but we had difficulty finding something sort of healthy. If you like wings and fried food you will love this menu. We had salads but fortunately we did not know the calorie count etc. but they... More

Though we live in the Lancaster area, we always enjoy eating at T. J. Rockwell's in Elizabethtown. Everything we've eaten there was always delicious. I especially liked the Caribbean Chicken Salad and the Taco Salad. The Caribbean salad includes many goodies, such as fresh pineapple chunks. The Taco salad is large and features beef or chicken, cheese, sour cream, avocado,... More

First, let's mention the good points. The food was excellent. The service was also excellent. Unfortunately, the venue itself was poor for a family dinner. We arrived early so that we could be sure to get a table. This restaurant fills up and a long wait is often the case at peak times. Also, it appears that the parking lot... More

My spouse and I went there, Friday, 12-19-14. The place was busy but the service was prompt. Our waitress Sarah was most enchanting, she took our drink order and then we ordered our food. I had the French onion soup and my sweetie had lobster bisque. Both were excellent. My wife ordered the shaved steak sandwich with onion rings, I... More

We were in the area for an Oktoberfest and wanted to meet up with some friends who live relatively nearby. Our friends suggested this place as being a fun stop. I had some personal reservations when I pulled into the parking lot. It was jam, packed and pretty chaotic. I figured that we would have a very long wait for... More

Food was consistently good and reasonably priced. The selection of food and drinks are one of the best in the area. Especially for beer drinkers, the amount of different beers and ales to chose from can be staggering. We always end out meal with the world 's smallest sundae. With the amount of great food you get with each entree,... More
