The Ship Inn, Exton, PA, combines charm, taste, history, service, atmosphere and more history for an excellent dining experience. If only the walls could speak, as it's been standing and in operation since 1794! Today, the Tangerine Salmon was prepared to perfection with the sweetest and most delicious light sauce that I will absolutely enjoy again in the near future.... More

I was here for an after-funeral luncheon with family. Great, if not tight-fitting, little place to have a nice meal. It's funny, because I live in area where there are at least 20 of these revolution-period inns turned restaurant and it reminded me of at least 6 of them. I felt quite at home, as I am sure you will,... More

That's right; no vegan, gluten-free, labeled local or organic nonsense. Just fresh food prepared well and served by a courteous and knowledgable staff. If that's enough to keep the pretentious, self-righteous idiots away, I'll eat here all the time!

What they cook, they cook well; their steak and seafood dishes are quite nice. BUT---the menu is straight out of the 1960s; if you're looking for a healthy option, they don't even have as much as a pasta dish that could be ordered without meat. They say they have vegetarian options available, but what you get if you ask for... More

Better then my wife and I expected, had a very nice anniversary dinner. Food and service were the top of the line.

Food was decent. Little pricey for some of the items (12 bucks for a small bowl of kids pasta?!? Even pure Italian restaurants don't charge that) and they need a clue on how to serve wine...two people at our party of 13 ordered red – with came out as cold as the white wines that were also ordered...the server said,...

Will NEVER eat here again. Stay away. Food I would not give to a dog. Family VERY disappointed in the Ships Inn. A take out pizza would have been a 100% inprovement.

We dined hear late one Saturday evening and the food was ok, nothing to rave about. For the price and the atmosphere we were anticipating a very tasty meal. So the food was underwhelming. I do not think we will go back.

The food was alright but the kitchen and staff are over loaded and cannot provide proper service in a timely manner. The best thing about this place is the building and front dining rooms. Over priced.

My husband and I went here because we had a living social voucher. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and ambiance was cool. Its a very happy old building and its age does show (hubby mentioned needing a paint job). We had a calamari app and the sauce was great with two raw oysters and these were also good.... More
