Consistently great food

I took my father who was visiting and a few family members out for dinner. This is my third time there and every time I go we get good food, service and prices are reasonable. My father got pork and sauerkraut and I was skeptical being that it is a German dish and he loved it. We have gotten the... read more

Just stopped in for a lunch snack and wow, what a great meal it turned out to be. The food is real deal honest quality with substance and flavor. I tried the fish soup and it was packed with great seafood and flavor. I then tried the tuna lettuce wrap and the tuna was seared prfectly with a bunch of... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. Got there on a Sunday- barely made it before the end of dinner service- which concludes at 7PM on Sundays. I had steak and my wife had fresh fish- delightful. The Sunday dinner menu is less extensive than the reset of the week. Great food and a cozy atmosphere.... More

We were first-timers and entered into what we thought was the main dining area - to learn that the main restaurant dining is downstairs. It was like discovering a charming secret. Although I can still remember how much I enjoyed my shrimp and crab scrapple and my veggie burger (somehow the chef made this selection seem like fine dining fare)... More

We had five in our group; arrived before the actual restaurant was open for dinner. However, every employee we met was accommodating to our request for wine before dinner and light snacks. The food was excellent with a lot of taste and the cook appeared during our wait to discuss the menu. The entire experience was worth the 30 minutes... More

We were looking for a place within walking distance of the Fulton Theatre. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. This place is easy to miss as it is behind the Central Market. The sidewalk was under construction so it was good it was adjacent to a parking lot. We will definitely bring friends back to this place.

Had a most enjoyable evening at the wine bar above the restaurant. The service was excellent. We sampled appetizers, wines, and speciality brews. Topped this off with a speciality salad. A perfect place to meet with friends or to share drinks before a dinner or theater!

This place is classic and one of a kind. Situated underground some tourists might miss it in Lancaster. But that's okay by me because then it's a townie's secret spot. The filet is to die for, melts like butter in your mouth. The wine list is extensive with a well educated staff. The bar is fun and the "Cellar Room"... More

We were a lunch party of 6, post-Elizabethtown College graduation. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. I split the sizeable warm mushroom salad with my wife, and LOVED the lamb meat balls entree. I also tasted the pork quesadilla and would have been happy had I made that my entree choice as well! The Guillaman was a fine substitute for... More
