Better than average food and lots of beer

The menu is relatively small, and the beer menu is large. Food is well prepared and served by friendly staff who have to husrtle during lunch time. The large beer menu is on a chalk board with a listing of alcohol content.

We were quite disappointed in the food. My hubby and I went on a weekday afternoon, ordered flounder. It was awful. When we told the waitress, she said it was being removed from the menu soon. We wondered why they had served it to us, knowing they planned to remove it. Very disappointed in the service as well. We had... More

Nice location, nice building, spotty service, average food. I stop in periodically after work for a beer or two. Every few months the family and I eat a meal here. The service and food quality vary tremendously depending on the day and server. Sometimes the soup is to kill for, sometimes little more than warm colored water. Burgers are usually... More

Ate here twice in a two week timeframe. First in the bar area and ordered the Chicken Chesapeake sandwich. Grilled chicken sandich with a crabcake on top. The chicken was overcooked, no mayo and the sandwich was too dry. Next time our group sat on the deck and I ordered the Strawberry Salad. Salad was good. The bees were a... More

My spouse is from this area, so all the family knows the way. The food is never disappointing and the quantities are large. We most recently shared a rueben sandwich, and ordered extra homemade chips. All was good, but the chips were awesome!! Good selection of beers, including seasonals and locals.

We recently held a business lunch at the Blue Bird Inn. It's been a while since I had been there. We were not disappointed in our lunch choices. I really like the menu at Blue Bird. There are several unique choices, something interesting for any taste. Our server was Sue and she was excellent. Sue topped off our drinks when... More

Our innkeeper at the Annville Inn recommended this dining spot. Food is good, staff is friendly, service is great and the patio is a nice place to linger for drinks on a nice evening. Jambalaya was delicious. The blueberry green tea infusion drink is yummy.

Driving through the rolling farmland of “suburban” Lebanon, Pennsylvania, it’s impossible not to think “this time my GPS really has gone haywire.” ------“Your destination is on your right,” she answers as if she heard your thoughts. There in the middle of nowhere is an oasis of fine food and sophisticated beer. A large bar area is lively and usually crowded... More
